-46 below today in Galena, -68 below in Allakaket, Alaska right on the
arctic circle (Where KIYU has a rebroadcast signal).

It looks like the earliest date it'll be warm enough for me to go outside
and DX is saturday and sunday, where it'll be in the lower 20s below
zero... it'll be -15 below monday or tuesday.. hot darn!!

Upcoming Trip  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 19 2017

If you're on the coast, Craig, it would be worth the effort to put
together some sort of Flag/Superloop/Kaz. Yes, you're right, I used
an ALA100, with wire around the motel balcony in Seaside, and
something like that will give you a taste of coastal, but if you have
the chance, nulling the domestics, even a bit, helps a lot.

If you can't fit one small telescoping pole into the luggage, then
finding a tree with a branch about 10-15' high that will allow you to
construct a Kaz (not a DKaz) using your FLG100 might be the way to
go. I've used that in a couple of locations and been pleased with
the results using about 100' total of wire.

best wishes,

Nick

I am taking a trip next month by air that will involve a few days on
the Oregon coast. I was thinking of taking a Wellbrook FLG100LN and
a small quantity of wire to make a mini corner fed loop. Does anyone
know the practical minimum for a portable loop? I seem to remember
Nick Hall-Patch using an ALA 100 (I think) from a hotel room in
Seaside at the IRCA Convention many years ago, which is what
inspired the idea. Any insights would be welcome. I am hoping for
something reasonably portable, so I don't think a DKAZ with
associated telescoping poles would fit the bill. I also recollect
that Chuck Hutton erected some temporary loops at the Rockworks site
near Manzanita, I think. I wonder how large they were.

Thanks!

Chuck's broadband antenna for our July 2014 Rockwork 4 DXpedition was " a 15â x 15â flag on a 252 degree (true north) axis with an 11 dB preamp feeding a Perseus receiver." With this relatively small antenna he managed to receive 87 New Zealand stations in 2 days-- far more than in any previous west coast DXpedition.
