Portable Ultralight DXing Session - Queechy Lake

On Saturday afternoon I spent an hour sitting at Queechy Lake undertaking a portable Ultralight DXing session. This was my first portable Ultralight DXing session since April. I had a couple of spare hours and felt like trying a new location so late yesterday afternoon around 4.30pm I headed down to Queechy Lake, I grew up close to this location so know the area well and spent my childhood playing in this park.

In the hour I spent listening to the band I logged 17 stations using my 7.5" loopstick Tecsun PL-380, these were mostly around the bottom half of the band with signals dropping off above 900kHz. Full details are below:
