Quite a respectable carrier on 1566 now at 0447 ut in Alberta, on both the
Wellbrook loop and slightly better on the 60 deg AF beverage. Almost
thought I heard traces of actual mumbles of audio so maybe.....

Hints of islands and New Zealand only this morning.


pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker,
at least briefly):

no

Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it
understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):

no


not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or
noise could be understood by a native speaker:


no


Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be
guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in
talk or music)


756 although there was an island sounding steel guitar solo, most of
the music had a jazzy 20s sound with clarinets and such like, 1212UT
1017 man mumbling after slow islandish sounding music, 1129UT,
Tonga? (strong carrier quite weak audio)

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or
ravaged by splatter)

nothing seemed to be Asian;
702 882 963 1098 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

Registration and airline tickets to the convention  View Printable Version

Mike,


Thank you for the kind comments. It all sounds great. I have always enjoyed every convention I have been to since my first IRCA convention in 1970 in Vancouver BC. Don't worry about it. It will work out fine.

See you soon.

3.5 inch (89mm) Airport-Friendly "Baby FSL" Construction Article  View Printable Version 
Saturday, June 17 2017

IRCA
For those interested in the upcoming "Heathkit-like" full construction article for the airport-friendly 3.5 inch (89mm) "Baby FSL" antenna, the article's introduction and required parts list have been uploaded at http://www.mediafire.com/file/p1pn75do5bvh111/3.doc
This initial information is being posted because of the typical delay in receiving the 160mm ferrite rods from the Ukraine (normally from 20-30 days), during which time the remainder of the article should be completed.

This antenna was designed to enable DXers to enjoy exciting weak signal MW-DX reception within a motel room (or out on a balcony) after long range air travel, such as Craig Barnes and I enjoyed during our recent Hawaii vacations. All of the required construction parts are readily available, and the antenna fits inside a custom-sized plastic tote designed to be packed within hand-carry luggage. The step-by-step construction procedures are currently being drafted, which will include operating tips on getting the best performance from the compact FSL antenna (designed to provide inductive coupling performance roughly comparable to that of a 4 foot air core box loop, once the DXer becomes skillful in its operation).

73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
