Totsuka DXer's Circle(TDXC) member including me enjoyed a MW DX-pedtion at a cape facing pacific ocean in Chiba prefecture on Sep.22, 2016. Unfortunately it was almost rainy day. We set up a twisted double delta flag(TDDF) antenna and pitched two tents there.
TDDF antenna was terminated by voltage controlled resistor (RTR:Remote Termination Resistor) and the antenna was fed by coaxial cable with a supercharged voltage follower.
We used SDRs such as Perseus and ELAD and the antenna output was divided to each member of TDXC.
Even though thunder noise often prevented us from catching trans pacific DX stations in good condition I could catch more than 50 MW stations from North America,Hawaii,Guam and Mexico in total. Thanks to sea gain, we could hear some MW station of North America with a portable MW radio too. The list of MW stations that I caught and their sound files are introduced in next article.
