Yes Mike...I am looking forward to the next winter's DX season. By then I
should have a 10' dia. air core loop pointed in your direction. BTW, condx
were very poor the night I did see Larry's signal so under normal or
enhanced condx there will be a large improvement. My present rx antenna is a
squashed-up 3' diameter active loop (shielded)...certainly far less than
optimum so the reception was very encouraging.

This report seems to have been largely ignored but is significant for

It was over 3500km, Steve is the furthest westerly station QRV and the
was all over land.

Steve is 7300km from England, and the best 136kHz DX so far is 6380km
(M0BMU>W4DEX) which is not too far off. Of course, the path is closer to
Pole and involves more land, so is likely to be more difficult.

Congratulations to both Steve and Larry.

By the way, I looked up Mayne Island on the web
(  It is in the far SW corner of
Canada and looks a really beautiful place.


Mike, G3XDV
