Ultralight DXing Report - Launceston Tasmania - 10/03/2014
Date: 09/03/2014 - 10/03/2014
Time: 23:40 - 00:50
Location: Home, Launceston Tasmania
Radio: 7.5” Loopstick Tecsun PL-380
Total stations logged: 130
New stations logged: 3 - 828kHz Radio Trackside / 954kHz Radio Trackside / 1485kHz 5LN
Furthest station logged: 1296kHz 6RN - 2768km
Notes: Late last night / earlier this morning I had the opportunity to do a late night ultralight dxing session at home, this was due to not needing to get up early due to the public holiday today. My session started off at 23:40 and as always I did a check on my two New Zealand check frequencies of 909kHz and 1386kHz which both produced sound results, 1386kHz peaking at a very good signal level. Over the next hour and in to the early hours of this morning I logged 130 stations including two new New Zealand stations and 5LN from Port Lincoln on 1485kHz running just 200W, this was heard just before I ended my session.
Total stations logged for each area were:
ACT - 6
NSW - 52
QLD - 7
SA - 15
TAS - 12
VIC - 29
WA - 1
New Zealand - 8
Overall the band was sounding close to the best I have heard it with the latter time of this session producing must less domestic noise.
I took a video of some of the stations I logged which is linked below.
