Introduction, setup

Post by Vladimir Doroshenko » 11 Aug 2018 07:19

Hi to all,

I'm Vladimir Doroshenko (MrVlaDor), 36 years old, live near city Dnipro (ex Dnipropetrovs'k - renamed in 2016). QTH locator - KN78HI. I'm a new user on this forum, but my interest in FM-DX since 2010 (intermittently). During 2010-2016 I used Sony XDR-F1HD (with Konrad's mod), since 2016 - Airspy R2. My antennas - 5 el. Yagi (V) and Korner 19.3 (H). On separate masts and each with rotator Yaesu G-450A.

My YouTube channel (more than 700 videos) - https://www.youtube.com/user/MrVlaDor

My interests include Tropo, Es, MS and AS. Have 74 DXCC on Band II (Es - 73, MS - 34) and 9 DXCC on Band I. Within one Es hop not received only San Marino and Liechtenstein.

In this personal log I will post my most interesting logs.

And a warm welcome from me too Vladimir.

I haven't had any Es DX from the Ukraine yet this season. It's always interesting to hear though as it doesn't seem to be a common country to receive here in southern England.
Good DX.

Hello John and Nick! Thank you for the warm welcome!

Ukraine and UK are far apart, so the Es rarely happens. From my QTH in central part of Ukraine distance to the UK is 2400+ km, London - 2500 km, Scotland - 2600+ km.

But I remember very good Es last year. 2017-06-18 was received many freq from UK - details on FMList Visual Logbook
Scotland I think was double hop. Distance to Meldrum is 2641 km.

For you, the Ukraine is more difficult because in Ukraine transmitters have much less power.

73!
Vladimir

Oh yes that opening on June 18th last year was insane. Russia, Belarus, the Baltic states, Scandinavia, Turkey, Spain and North Africa in seemingly simultaneously! Unless any of the UNIDs were from the Ukraine, I didn't log anything from there as far as I know.

This is one of the better signals I had from UKR via E-skip logged on May 25th 2016:

Very nice! Only 250 W TRP. ID at 6:17 - "Ukrains'ke radio". Usually do not say that this is the first program.The second and third programs are called Promin' and Kul'tura - this is usually said in ID.
