June 2015 Rockwork 4 Ocean Cliff DXpedition-- Ultralight Radio Results By Gary DeBock
(From the [ultralightdx] Yahoo Group)
For those interested in the latest discoveries in FSL antennas, modified Ultralight radios and ocean cliff transoceanic propagation boosts, an 11-page report covering the Ultralight radio portion of the recent Rockwork 4 Oregon cliff DXpedition has been uploaded to https://app.box.com/s/
Although my Perseus-SDR DXpedition partners Chuck and Tom are still reviewing their files for this trip, the linked DXpedition report includes a detailed propagation assessment for each of the five days from June 25-29, multiple site photos, MP3 recording links for each of the 31 South Pacific MW stations received on Ultralight radios (22 New Zealand, 7 Australian, 1 Tahiti and 1 Fiji) plus a narrative on the challenges and rewards of chasing transoceanic DX from the edge of a 400' (122m) plunging ocean cliff. This awesome cliff was the site of the best New Zealand MW-DXing results ever obtained in North America, recorded by my DXpedtion partner Chuck Hutton last July.
73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
