Special DXpedition Report:

From: Rich D’Angelo Date: November 17, 2005 Re: French Creek State Park DXpedition No. 22 (November 13, 14 and 15, 2005)

Equipment: Ten-Tec RX-340 and a Drake R-8B, 500-foot wire essential north and a Bob Montgomery Active Antenna

After a nine month break between DXpeditions, it was time to venture up to French Creek for our first DXpedition of the new DX season. Although the weather was excellent, the park was overrun with folks enjoying the great fall weather, DX conditions were less than optimal.

This was DXpedition #22 at French Creek with Rich Cuff, John Figliozzi, Bob Montgomery and Ed Mauger rounding out the team. Fred Kohlbrenner was a last minute cancellation otherwise we would have had our first six in a cabin. Getting our antennas up for the action was a piece of cake with the warm weather and dry conditions making the hike up the back inclined real estate an easy matter. Although afternoon Africans seemed respectable overall DX conditions the first afternoon and evening were not very good. A quiet location can not overcome some hostile propagation. Things didn’t improve much the following morning although some Peruvians did make an appearance but nothing special. The afternoon saw a nice early opening around 1900 in the 49 meter band. Things slowed down with no Indonesians making the trip.

Conditions stayed poor during the entire trip making anything from Indonesia, India and Papua New Guinea nearly impossible. Perhaps things will be better next month?

“On our unID’s in the Flashsheet ~ if anyone can help with them please do so by e-mailing me and I’ll include them in the next Flashsheet.

*A final reminder that I’ve set a new loggings deadline time for Sunday’s. Instead of 1500 EST / 1900 UTC it will now be: 1200 EST / 1700 UTC beginning with Flashsheet #197 on November 6, 2005.

CORRECTION: from Jim Ronda: “I just had a very useful e-mail from Chris Lobdell suggesting that my log of Mali 11960 on 11/1 @ 2145-2156 was actually the relay of Star Radio. The evidence that Chris presented to me was wholly persuasive. I think that Chris is exactly right and I was exactly wrong. Would you be sure to include this correction in the next issue of FS.” [FS #197; 11/6].
