Editors Corner:


ABDX membership has reached 202 members! 202 today, tomorrow the world, one DXer at a time. I thank all of you for being members of ABDX.


The January CME is all about ultralight radio logs. There has been a lot of interest in this type of DX. We have a good number of ultralight logs this month. February’s CME is about DXing weather reports on any band.


Analog TV DX was supposed to be shut down in February and now the government has changed the date until June. You have 4 months to DX analog TV and then its all digital.


A very big thank you to Jay Rogers for setting up a DX test at WOON. It was widely heard in the northern states.


If anyone wants to help write a column for the Journal please write me at amfmdx at centurytel dot com. If anyone has a one off story for the Journal it would be excellent to have it sent along as well.

I'm hearing the Caribbean Beacon on 1610 now with a female speaker (Mrs. Scott??) and some non-religious pop music from the 1960s/early 1970s, dominant on channel and building nicely as the sun sets. Thanks for the tip, Juan!

1/22

Fun stuff! XEUACH, Radio Chapingo dominant on channel with what can best be described as "Cuban techno" music but it can be easily nulled for Anguilla, with Mrs. Scott rambling on about the "auxiliary functions of the church" or whatever. I suspect the Caribbean Beacon should be as widely heard as it was in the late 1980s when it was a winter regular at my QTH in San Diego. Go get 'em, campers!

DX-398


1/3 8:24PM Local, WCZZ Greenwood, SC 1090 - Heard "Sporting News Radio" heading into a break, string of national-oriented ads, nothing localized noted for listening for three to four minutes.

Signal varied, but peaked to what I'd envision as 20db over 9, fading slowly back and forth with a spanish language easy listening sort of vocal song on another station. I'll try to head back out

for the local ID. And me with ALL my portable radios AT WORK. Every one... to my wife's delight, no less.

1/6 1550 KHZ, presumed, WRHC Coral Gables, FL. Hispanic Language Telephone Talk, noted caller and hosts voices were // to 670, mentions of communities around Miami-Dade, also // to Cadena Azul website where WRHC streams live. Signal fair at peaks, but usually poor, nulling WNZF Bunnell, FL on a barefoot Radio Shack DX 398 just prior to 11PM eastern time.

 670 kHz, presumed WWFE Miami, FL, signal poor but readable, as per above notes.

1/29 Trying out a DaySequerra Model M4 AM and FM HD Tuner (heaviest tuner I've ever carried...): Radio Shack 15-1853 AM loop antenna. 

660 WFAN NY, NY. in HD

700 WLW Cincy, OH in HD

780 WBBM Chicago, IL in HD

880 WCBS NY, NY in HD

1010 WJXL Jax Beach, FL, in HD

1510 WLAC Nashville, TN in HD. 

530 RVC Turks and Caicos, curiously, NOT broadcasting in HD, apparently.  Nor

570 Radio Reloj, Cuba, NOT in HD, either. hmm.. (eye roll)

I noted KFBK IBOC is off tonight, 10:50 PM PST 1/7/09. I can clearly hear KOKC on 1520. I can usually null the IBOC but the signal is better with it off.

Here is a report on our trip to Costa Rica.

 Wendy and I spent a week in Costa Rica and I had some time to DX during the daytime. I mostly concentrated on verifying slogans and some format information. We stayed in a house outside of Huacas in northwest Costa Rica. The nearest large town was Santa Cruz. 

There was an earthquake in San Jose a few days before our trip but it wasn't felt where we were. I did note some San Jose stations were not heard. We arrived early on January 10, 2009 and left early morning

January 17, 2009.  

The receiver used was my Radio Shack TRF. It does not have digital frequency readout. Reception inside the house was very poor. I suspect the walls were made of concrete blocks. Most of my listening was near a window and on the outside patio (16th).  

The variety of music and programming was a nice change from US stations. Lots of different upbeat music to listen to. We will probably be back and next time I'll take something to do some recordings. The FM dial was also full but didn't listen much with my SRF-59. Next time I'll take an ultralite with digital readout.  

All programs were in Spanish, all slogans as heard, times in UTC. Costa Rica is UTC-6 hrs.

1590 COSTA RICA R 16 2146 1/16 talk program, ID and mention of Grecia at 2159.  

I left out many UNIDs. Some stations just don't ID that often. Several UNIDs were probably in Nicaragua (600, 620).

Phil Rafuse – Stratford, PEI

Drake R8 and LFE M601C or as Listed


Its been a long while since I did some armchair DX - but feeling like I'm coming down with the flu, leaning back in my radio room chair - DXing with the Drake R8 using its aftermarket remote certainly was preferable for me tonight rather than sitting bolt upright or hunched over another receiver:

1380 CKPC Brantford ON with a classic hits format, playing mostly 70s music, then into a promo for CKPC.com. 1380 is normally a frequency I would just spin by, but I'm glad I paused. 12:41 a.m. AST Jan 20/09

1650 CINA Mississauga ON and CJRS Montreal QC slugfest with CINA dominating at times. CINA brings back happy memories of the old 1680 WTTM :)

It dawned on me as well while surfing the MW band with the Drake R8 that its rather sloppy LC filters are rather handy for spotting TAs - indeed, I snagged a couple higher band TAs by switching to the Palstar R30A and Icom R71A with their tight filters. But Germany 1422 and

Saudi 1521 are common catches here.

And now, snuffle, snuffle, ache ache, spin spin, back to bed...

Home with the flu, I caught the following on the Drake R8 fed by the
