2006 Dr. Harold Beverage Birthday
Celebration Party and Grayland DXpedition
October 6-8, 2006

We were a week early this year, but we celebrated anyhow with a bunch of nice logs. This time around, the Graylanders were:

Bill Harms R8B, Quantum Phaser
Nick Hall-Patch R8, Dymek DR333
Chuck Hutton R8B, AR7030
Bruce Portzer R8A, R-75
Steve Ratzlaff R75, AR7030

Plus special Saturday afternoon attendees Patrick Martin and Dave Williams who made the drive up from Oregon.

Highly organized cable layout used at Grayland

We kind of emphasized Koreans, thanks to having the fluent Korean speaker Bill Harms here to help out. A lot of new logs of Koreans resulted, including 567, 621, 657 (S. Korea), 675, 756, 783, 999, 1008, 1035, 1044, 1053, 1098, 1107, 1161, 1206, 1242, 1314, 1332, and 1341.

Also interesting was the new Philippine on 1314 with English religion which stumped us until Henrik Klemetz recognized the program and station.

China was fairly good, as were the Koreas. Japan was so-so, SE Asia below average and the DU’s were not worth spending any time on. Alaska was there, but just the regulars were there.

A little surprise came at the very end: on the morning of Oct. 8, Chinese stations were still present at good levels 2 hours after local sunrise! One of the best was Jiangxi (China) on 729 which was a very powerful signal frequently.
