Ultralight DXing Report - Launceston Tasmania - 6/12/2014

Date: 6/12/2014
Time: 19:00 – 19:40
Location: Home, Launceston Tasmania
Radio: 7.5” Loopstick Tecsun PL-380
Total stations logged: 36
New stations logged:
Furthest station logged: 2RN (New Castle) 1032km

Notes: Tonight I managed to grab a 40 minute block of time to myself, our daughter was born this week so I have been spending a lot of time at the hospital, her and my wife have come home today so things can now become the “ new” normal. For the foreseeable future most of my sessions will be at home or very close by.

In the 40 minutes I had I was able to log 36 stations, all of these I have logged previously. All the normal Tasmanian / Victorian stations I would expect to hear came in with fair to good audio, some NSW stations were also logged with the top end of the band between 1152kHz and 1512kHz being where these were mostly found. A number of these NSW stations maxing out the PL380's signal meter. I did a quick listen on my NZ check frequencies but no signals were heard, given the early time this session was undertaken this was to be expected.
