Newfoundland 17 DXpedition Report

Jean Burnell - Chuck Hutton - Jim Renfrew

November 10-19, 2006

The seventeenth DXpedition at Cappahayden, Newfoundland, welcomed a first-time participant: Chuck Hutton from Seattle.

Chuck
Happy first-timer

It was on the seventh DXpedition, back in 1998, when we had previously entertained a Newfoundland rookie! However, Chuck is far from a newcomer to the hobby, having served many years ago as the editor for the International DX Digest column in the National Radio Club's bulletin, and more recently he has been a frequent participant at the Grayland DXpeditions. The other two DXers were the perennials, Jim Renfrew

Jean
What? You guys are still doing SER local ID's?

from Halifax, Nova Scotia. DX headquarters was the Round Cove Bed & Breakfast,

which is operated by Ollie and Ken Perry.

It is regrettable that Chuck did not get a genuine Newfoundland DXpedition experience, so he may still be regarded as only partially initiated. That is because this time the weather was extraordinary,

with temperatures reaching 15 °C, and there were even extended periods of sun. It did rain torrentially the first day, when Jean was putting up the antennas, but Chuck arrived after the drenching and the foul language were over. But perhaps Chuck did get a bit of the flavour of the place. He ate moose,

he had some blank moments in which he tried to decipher the Newfoundland accent,

and he witnessed the ease with which a complex technical problem was resolved in a St. John's electronics store. Jean needed an AC adapter for a piece of equipment, but was the adapter on sale compatible with the equipment? The sales representative declared he was able to assess this with certainty. Moments later he pronounced the AC adapter suitable. Because there was no smoke when he plugged the adapter into the equipment, this was obviously a perfect match.

It was disappointing that Chuck did not witness a glorious Cappahayden opening, when every 10-kHz frequency is dominated by a Brazilian, or when every Botswana station is audible, or when the Middle East stations include some from Iraq or Yemen. Nevertheless, in spite of the generally lacklustre conditions we did garner some very good logs, and it is testament to Chuck's experience that it was he who spotted what turned out to be the best log of the DXpedition.

Chuck left Newfoundland the next day, November 18th, but Jim and Jean stayed on until the 20th. Conditions did seem to be improving in the final couple of days, and it was unfortunate that the DXpedition had not coincided with generally conditions that were below par. Here is a night-by-night summary of the DXpedition.

Signals in the early evening of November 10th indicated some enhancement of eastern Europe, but this quickly dissolved leaving mainly the bigger stations in western Europe, all common catches, as essentially the only players from across the Atlantic. The only signal of note was the Dutch pirate Radio Tijbreker on 1644.94 kHz, but this station had been heard before, also. Signals from the south were all relatively short-haul. There were two "new" catches, Radio Senda de Vida (1680 kHz) from the Dominican Republic and Radio Litoral (1060 kHz) from Colombia. The latter was identified many months later by Henrik Klemetz in Sweden from an audio clip posted on the RealDX site. WSTX from the U.S. Virgin Islands (970 kHz) was identified unequivocally, following a tentative log in April.

On November 11th we noticed that some Iranians (1080, 1224, 1314, and 1584 kHz) were going quite well, and these stations, which had not previously been heard, reappeared almost every night. Some British locals were logged, and we parked on SER-network frequencies to catch the ID's at the times of the local announcements and ads. Reception is not very good when we resort to listening to the Iberians. It's like fishing for minnows when you really want to catch a salmon.

November 12th had the eastern Europeans appearing early, with a signal from Katolikus Radio in Hungary bearing logged on 810 kHz, but this would have been impossible without the stronger parallel signal on 1341 kHz as a guide. The highlight of the session was a 70-watt Access Radio outlet from London, Desi Radio, on 1602 kHz. John Fisher, a frequent Cappahayden DXpeditioner, is to be thanked for suggesting that we look for this one.

At 0025 UTC (November 13th) some time was taken to log the newer 60 metre-band All India Radio outlets on 4810 (Bhopal) and 4965 kHz (Shimla), and at 0059 UTC the Gangtok (Sikkim) station on 4835 kHz was heard weakly. DXing at sunrise revealed only common Cuban and Venezuelan signals.

Transatlantic signals were mainly from western Europe during the evening of November 13th, but signals from South America began showing up, although nothing really remarkable was heard. Some fairly common Brazilians were noted, and Radio del Plata (1030 kHz) from Buenos Aires could be heard behind WBZ. The only station of note logged in the early morning session was XEPE, Tijuana, on 1700 kHz.

Poor conditions persisted on November 14th. In the early evening a Arab station was noted under Sweden on 1179 kHz, but we were unable to identify it. Radio 2 from the Ukraine was heard very poorly behind France on 1377 kHz. Jim logged some more 60-m AIR stations at their sign-on.

November 15th was really more of the same, unexciting conditions and mainly routine catches. Local/regional ID's were logged for a number of Spanish stations, but that is symptomatic of our finding little of excitement. In the early morning hours a "new" Argentinean was finally heard, Radio Cuyo from Mendoza on 720 kHz. This was carrying mainly Radio Continental network programming.

The MW band was populated mainly by Iberian and western European signals on the evening of November 16th. Barcelona (Rock y Gol Radio) was noted on 783 kHz. This 50 kW station is difficult to log due to interference from Mauritania and Syria. Jim heard a long sought station on 1017 kHz, PEF from Madeira, in parallel with the outlet on 1530 kHz. Chuck claimed a longer-haul catch with Israel on 1026 kHz. During the evening we first noticed a station on 531 kHz that played popular music without any announcements or breaks. We suspect that this was the new Kringvarp Føroya transmission from the Faroe Islands.

One of the first stations logged on November 17th, while it was still broad daylight in Cappahayden, was Djibouti on 1539 kHz, in parallel with 4780 kHz, but then nothing exciting was heard until around 0026 UTC when Chuck noticed a weak station mixing with France Bleu on 1278 kHz. This turned out to be the best log of the DXpedition. The frequency was monitored for the next 90 minutes, and during the infrequent fade-ups we heard Portuguese telephone conversations, pop music and mentions of the "Programa Nacional." The station turned out to be parallel to 4950 kHz and 1484.52 kHz, so it was the Angolan. This was the first time that the station from Cabinda has been logged at Cappahayden, even thought we had checked this frequency many times during previous DXpeditions when signals from other Angolan stations had been moderate to strong. French talk faded up occasionally on 1062 kHz, which was probably Radio Livres Télérama from France. It is unfortunate that we were unable to ID this station because it ceased broadcasting shortly afterwards.

Transatlantic signals on November 18th was more lively than it had been for many days. Some previously heard, but less common, stations were logged, for instance Sud Radio on 819 kHz, Classic Gold from Luton on 828 kHz, and BBC Southern Counties Radio on 1368 kHz. Normally there is only one English station on 1413 kHz, BBC Radio Gloucestershire, but at 2032 UTC there were two. The weaker station IDed at 2033 UTC as "Fresh Radio." Reception of this 100-watt station did not last long as the BBC World Service from Oman faded up. Just after 0000 UTC we were surprised to hear the Russian-language broadcast from Urumqi, China, on 1521 kHz.

Signals began arriving very early on November 19th. All India Radio on 1566 kHz was audible at 1:10 p.m. local time. Radio Rossii (Saransk) was IDed 1710 UTC on 1080 UTC, and within ten minutes many British local stations could be heard. Capital Gold Kent was a "new" log on 1242 kHz. The Dutch pirate Weduwe was clearly audible on 1639.98 kHz at 1915 UTC. Later, at 0000 UTC, China was heard again on 1521 kHz, but this time interference from Classic Gold Digital was a more significant problem. Although little from the southern part of South America was coming through, signals from the Caribbean were fairly good. It was unusual to hear Trinidad (730 kHz) in the evening; this is normally an early morning log. The last morning of the DXpedition was the most interesting of the DXpedition. Many stations in Spanish were audible well past sunrise. Jim was excited to hear a station on 700 kHz giving wake-up announcements for Ecuador. This was Radio Sucre Internacional in Guayaquil. He thought that stations on 730 and 760 kHz might be Ecuadorans as well, but ID's were not heard.

Comments from Jim Renfrew

The Newfoundland experience began with my wife Robin and I meeting Saul Chernos and Niel Wolfish for dinner in Toronto. Robin is a good sport as she dived right into the conversation about DX esoterica like a veteran. It was good to hear some of Niel’s testimony about the September Miscou NB DXpedition to stoke my anticipation for Newfoundland DX. After Robin left for the return drive to New York, Saul checked his e-mail and based on some FM alerts, made a wild proposal to me to join him on a mini-DXpedition to his Joker Hill remote site north of Toronto. As an early concession to sleep deprivation in Newfoundland, I agreed. Saul has gotten permission to roam the hills with his car in the middle of the night at a university-related nature center. This was to be an FM experience, and Saul was fully equipped with a special radio, and an extendable dipole antenna (I think using a mop handle). We stopped in several parking areas on the top of the hill to check out the conditions, and then soon enough Saul was driving on twin-rutted lanes looking for the right kind of hill to favor Michigan/Wisconsin while blocking signals from Toronto. Amazingly, no security guards or cops came to investigate the headlights dancing around the hillside! The original deal was that I would sleep at Saul’s place and then catch a cab to the airport in the early morning. As we headed back to the city it looked smarter to drive me direct to the airport, so I had a few hours to nap in one of those incredibly comfortable airport chairs.

In the morning I deftly hoisted both of my checked items on the scale at once so that heavier one would not draw a penalty, and I was off to St. John’s. As usual, the approach over the Gulf of St. Lawrence was shrouded in cloud, so “The Rock” was only seen in the final landing approach. All of the cold weather gear that I packed was useless to me because this week was incredibly warm and mostly dry. On a few days the temperatures were around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The lack of rain seemed to reduce the amount of crackling in the nearby power lines.
Conditions to Europe were generally good, although having heard so many stations from there it is getting harder to find new targets. It seems like we spent a lot of time trawling for RNE/SER/COPE local IDs during local breaks. Although we had detailed schedules for these breaks, it was often the case that the national feed continued without any break. Many of these channels have multiple transmitters with a pronounced double or triple echo, so it’s hard to get much more than the ID during those brief local breaks.

A few receptions stood out: China 1521 was heard with Russian programs on two evenings in a row at 0100 and Cabinda 1278 was finally heard after many years of trying, with a music program parallel to 1484.52.

For the second year conditions to Brazil and deep South America were poor, with only the strongest stations observed. However, on the last morning there was a brief flurry of Ecuadoran signals, which was quite unusual.

We were fortunate that our Bed & Breakfast hosts have acquired a computer, so for the first time we had dial-up access during a DXpedition. Since it is the same line used for credit card transactions at the convenience store next door, the access time is limited. The Perry’s went far beyond the call of duty in providing for our varied diets, and this is a reflection of their hospitality and generosity. Although the surrounding land is less than ideal for spreading antenna wire, Ollie’s B&B is a wonderful location for DXing in comfort.

Comments from Chuck Hutton

I stuffed two communications receivers, a laptop, bunches of coax cables, antenna transformers, audio stuff, cold weather clothing, a phaser, etc into 2 suitcases and then flew from the west coast to Newfoundland. Some might call that a pain, but it seemed a small price to pay for the chance to sample the best DX site in North America.

Too bad all the arctic wear took up so much space, since it was as warm in Cappahayden as it was back home in Seattle. Drier, too.

Coast
Dodging shipwrecks, we (Jean) installed our antennas here.

I briefly thought about opening up a beach resort and golf club until Jean told me last year at this time there was ice on the edge of the ponds. Never mind……

You know you’re in for a good time when the radio powered up on 1062 (having last heard a Chinese station from Grayland the week before) and there was a mix of Italy and Denmark at a fine level. Didn’t have to do anything, and there were already 2 stations in the logbook.

The Round Cove B&B (owned by Ken and Ollie Perry, as in Olivia) was a fun little place to stay. She treats you like a mother (in the good sense), even timing the meals to our current level of DX fervor. Hearing Nibi Nibi trumps anything else, and she understands. In the mornings, breakfast always awaited us when we finally got up although being part of the Perry clan we had grazing rights anytime. Plus, homemade cloudberry jam for toast…. I don’t think the Lawlor Inn could match that.

Now about the DX: enough to keep things interesting but not a whole lot of stuff that will make you say “oh my”. In addition to the aforementioned Cabinda-1278, I was impressed by a big handful of Iranians: 1080, 1161, 1188, 1224, 1251, 1314, 1332, 1404, 1449, 1467 and 1584. A few others weren’t conclusive so stayed in the ether to be caught next time. A few nights were good for Spain, resulting in hearing Spain on 71 of the 74 frequencies it uses per the 2005 WRTH. Only 711 Murcia, 864 Socuellamos and 909 Palma escaped from me. 828 Terrassa was the toughest of the bunch and had not been heard previously. When there wasn’t a whole lot of action, we collected local ID’s. I enjoyed this, having been in the little towns where some of these stations are during my period of living in Spain. Another moment that stuck in my mind was the perfectly readable signal of Desi Radio 1602 with only 75 Watts and Spanish interference to fight.

I wouldn’t mind a few million more DXpeditions with Jean and Jim. I sure had a good time, with “good time” being defined not as just good DX but just feeling comfortable and enjoying our little excursions, moose dinners, the ubiquitous cod, etc. Maybe these guys will come out to Grayland some year. They would be more than welcome.
