Notes: Over the weekend just been my wife, daughter and I spent a night in Hobart, about 180km south of my home DXing location. Due to a number of factors my DXing time was limited to a short period on the Saturday night and again the next morning from our hotel room. Overall the results from this location were very disappointing, except for the three local Hobart stations, a hint of 7SD on 540KHz and HPON on 1008KHz from Launceston and surprisingly a weak signal from 3MP on 1377KHz the band was dead. Most frequencies in my long term ultralight dxing project group were full of noise and in a couple of cases some very weak traces of a signal could be heard on other frequencies but nothing at a level where I could record them as anything more than a 0.

In the future I hope to explore some different areas of Hobart, as a reference point I had a look at my ultralight dxing report from when we were last down in Hobart in March 2014 (http://ultralightdxing.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/ultralight-dxing-report-hobart-tasmania.html) in that case I logged 67 stations, we did stay at a different hotel that time on the other side of the CBD and I suspect this had a lot to do with the major difference in how many stations I was able to receive. A couple of photos and a graph showing the difference between my average signal level and what I received on the weekend is below.
