Ultralight DXing Report - Launceston Tasmania - 08/02/2014
Time: 13:45 - 14:30 Local
Location: Freelands Lookout, Launceston Tasmania
Radio: 7.5” Loopstick Tecsun PL-380
Total stations logged: 46
New stations logged: 0
Furthest station logged:
Notes: As this was the middle of the day the signals I received were restricted to Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales stations. The purpose of this session was to test Freelands lookout as a location with a view to undertaking some ultralight DXing in the future between sunset and sunrise. The hut on the top of the lookout provides a good level of protection from the sun / wind and in the future this will make a good location. I have also recently discovered that the gates to the lookout are locked after hours so this will mean parking outside and walking in.
Below are some photos I took at the lookout today.
