CLE 177
16.12.13 - 16:22:15
 
Hi all
 
Time to tell you a bit about our Holiday Co-ordinated Listening Event,
to be held as usual over the '12 Days of Christmas'.
It will consist of 12 challenges which will exercise various aspects of
our hobby. Just about all of them can be tackled without any special
equipment and without complicated know-how.
 
START: Wednesday 25 December at midday your Local Time
FINISH: Monday 6 January at midday your Local Time
TARGET: Beacons using normal Morse modes
 
The 12 Challenges are:
 
#1 THE SANTA-SEEKER SOLO
Log the one NDB you can hear nearest to the North Pole
(South Pole if you are in the Southern Hemisphere)
 
#2 Your BOTTOM ENDER and TOP ENDER
Log the one MOST LF NDB you can hear, plus the one
MOST HF NDB you can hear (180 - 1740 kHz range)
 
#3 THE LF HAMS' THREE
Log any three Amateur Beacons in the 135 to 515 kHz range.
(can include the LowFERs in N. America)
 
#4 THE HF HAMS' FOUR
Log any four Amateur Beacons on HF band(s), 3.5 to 28.
 
#5 FIVE 'FIRSTS'
Any five NDBs logged by you for the first time.
(A hard challenge for our most experienced listeners?)
 
#6 THE SICK SIX
Six NDBs each heard with a technical fault (please describe)
 
#7 THE SUNNY SEVEN
The seven NDBs you can hear nearest to the Equator.
 
#8 THE ENTRY-LEVEL EIGHT
Eight NDBs heard with a 'barn door' receiver (basic selectivity,
etc.) E.g. a portable, 'antique' receiver, homebrew (1AD, etc.),
 
#9 Your NOON NEAREST NINE
The nine active NDBs nearest to you, if possible logged within
2 hours of midday (your local time).
 
#10 THE TWENTE TEN
Any ten NDBs heard 'live' via the receiver at the University of
Twente Radio Club (HOL) http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
 
#11 THE EXOTIC ELEVEN
NOT your most DX, but eleven otherwise special NDBs
(e.g. in exotic, unusual or interesting places)
 
#12 THE DX TWELVE
The twelve most DX NDBs that you can identify, EACH ONE IN
A DIFFERENT RADIO COUNTRY (Reminder: each USA, CAN and
AUS State and Province is a different radio country)
 
That makes a TOTAL of up to 78 loggings and 78 different beacons.
Where possible, try to avoid using the same beacon for more than
one challenge.
 
For individual challenges, their loggings can be made on ANY or MANY
of the 12 days.
 
Only 'Normal' NDBs in the range 180-1740 kHz, except for #3 and #4.
 
Some challenges may not fit well with your own location, such as the
Santa-Seeker Solo and the Sunny Seven; just do the best you can!
 
Please look out for the Final Details at the weekend, when I'll give more
clarification on each of the challenges and advice on log-making.
(But feel free to fire any questions at me before that, if you need to -
preferably direct to me).
 
Good listening
Brian

Hello all
 
It's just a few days before our Holiday Co-ordinated Listening Event.
During the '12 Days of Christmas' we are invited to tackle 12 listening
challenges in various aspects of our hobby.
 
For each individual challenge, the loggings can be made  
IN ANY SEQUENCE and on ANY or MANY of the 12 days.
Just about all of them can be tackled without special equipment and
without complicated know-how.
 
START: Wednesday 25 December at midday your Local Time
FINISH: Monday 6 January at midday your Local Time
TARGET: Beacons using normal Morse modes
 
The 12 Challenges are:
 
#1 THE SANTA-SEEKER SOLO
Log the one NDB you can hear nearest to the North Pole
(South Pole if you are in the Southern Hemisphere)
 
#2 Your BOTTOM ENDER and TOP ENDER
Log the one MOST LF NDB you can hear, plus the one
MOST HF NDB you can hear (180 - 1740 kHz range)
 
#3 THE LF HAMS' THREE
Log any three Amateur Beacons in the 135 to 515 kHz range.
(can include the LowFERs in N. America)
Some good hunting grounds for this challenge could be  
137.5, 472-478 and around 506 kHz.
 
#4 THE HF HAMS' FOUR
Log any four Amateur Beacons on one or more of the HF  
band(s), 3.5 to 28 MHz.
Some good hunting grounds for this challenge could be  
3550-3595, 5290, 7000-7040, 10130-10145, 14000-14100,
18100-18110, 21150, 24930 and 28160-28330 kHz
(That last range is by far the busiest when conditions are right)
 
#5 FIVE 'FIRSTS'
Any five NDBs logged by you for the first time.
(May be a hard challenge for our most experienced listeners)
 
#6 THE SICK SIX
Six NDBs each heard with a technical fault (please describe it).
 
#7 THE SUNNY SEVEN
The seven NDBs you can hear located nearest to the Equator.
 
#8 THE ENTRY-LEVEL EIGHT
Eight NDBs heard with a 'barn door' receiver (basic selectivity,
etc.) E.g. a portable, 'antique' receiver, homebrew (1AD, etc.) ..
Please describe it in footnotes after your log.
 
#9 Your NOON NEAREST NINE
The nine active NDBs you can hear nearest to you, if possible
logged within 2 hours of midday (your local time).  
 
#10 THE TWENTE TEN
Any ten NDBs heard 'LIVE' via the receiver at the University of
Twente Radio Club (HOL) http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
I will provide a simple introduction by separate email on
how to access and use the Twente receiver.
 
#11 THE EXOTIC ELEVEN
NOT your most DX, but eleven otherwise special NDBs
(e.g. in exotic, unusual or interesting places)
 
#12 THE DX TWELVE
The twelve most DX NDBs that you can identify, EACH ONE IN
A DIFFERENT RADIO COUNTRY (Reminder: each USA, CAN
and AUS State/Province is a different radio country)
 
We are only listening for 'Normal' NDBs in the range 180 - 1740 kHz,  
except in challenges #3 and #4.
 
Send your CLE log to the List with CLE177 at the start of its title,
preferably as a plain text email - and please not in an attachment.
 
Show on EVERY LINE of your log:
 
# The full Date (NOT just the Day no. if your log spans Dec. and Jan.)
# UTC (the day changes at 00:00 UTC).
# kHz (the beacon's nominal published frequency)
# The Call Ident.
 
Other optional details such as Location, Distance, etc., go LATER in the
same line (or in footnotes).
 
There is ## ONE VERY IMPORTANT ADDITION ##
Add the challenge number(s), including the #, on every line AFTER  
the four main log items above, using #1 or #2 or #3, - - - or #12.
(E.g. it could be at the right hand end of every log line).
 
You may find it best to show your loggings in challenge order -
One ....#1 line, then two ....#2 lines, then three ....#3 lines, etc.
 
As always, please make your log interesting and useful to old and new
members alike by including your own location and brief details of the
equipment and aerial(s) that you were using.
If you send any interim logs, make sure that you send a FINAL log
containing all your loggings for the CLE.
 
Of course you needn't complete every challenge, or even tackle them all -
just try your best for each one. Perfection should not be needed to enjoy
the hunt! Do tell us about any happy highs or lurid lows of your listening.

I will send an 'Any More Logs?' email at about 18:00 UTC on Tuesday 7th  
January. From it you will be able to check that your log has arrived OK.
Make sure that your log arrives at the very latest by 09:00 UTC on
Wednesday 8th January.  
Our Combined Results should be ready within a day or two of that.
 
Do have a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
Good listening
Brian

SEEKLISTS: You could tackle this CLE without the help of any seeklists.
However, they would make several challenges easier and more interesting.
I am sending a separate email describing how you can quickly make some  
useful lists matching your own location (plus a ready-made list to help you
find your SUNNY SEVEN).
 
'The TWENTE TEN' challenge #10 is a small relaxation of the usual rule
about the use of a remote receiver for the whole of a CLE.
 
However, if you use Twente (or any other remote receiver) for a
logging in ANOTHER challenge you must use that remote receiver
for ALL the loggings in this CLE.

via the Web receiver at the University of Twente Radio Club in Holland.
22 of us achieved that, all of them making their full 10 loggings.
 
The detailed combined results are attached as CLE172TWe5.xls.
Some extra details are shown below.

In total, we have logged almost 700 different NDBs via the Twente receiver
so far, as shown in REU.
280 of those were last logged from 25 Dec. 2013 and we showed 115 of  
those in the CLE results. The remainder were made up by the reported CLE  
'rejects' - and by a few other members who also used Twente but didn't  
submit their loggings for the CLE.
 
When listening, do you usually choose to tune UP (LF to HF) or DOWN
(HF to LF)? See near the end of the attached Excel file for more about  
that!
 
Mark used his iPAD via the home WiFi with the advertised experimental
version of the WebSDR page for devices with small screens. It worked
flawlessly.
 
We are grateful to Pieter at the University for the enjoyment that the
'Twente 10 Challenge' gave us.
 
Further CLE177 results will follow in a while (this was the easy part!).

Hi all
 
The fourth 'Challenge' for our Holiday Listening Event was to log 4 Amateur
Beacons on the HF Amateur Bands.
 
The detailed combined results from that task are attached as CLE177HFe5.xls.
A few extras are shown below.
 
24 Reporters
40 Radio Countries heard
63 different NDBs heard
88 reports supplied
 
Most Heard Beacons:
 
Rprts kHz C/S Location Cou.
=============================================
4 7039.4 OK0EPB Prague - CZE
4 14099 IZ0HCC Rome - ITA
 
3 14099.5 IW2MXP Bubbiano - ITA
3 10133 SK6RUD Oxaback - SWE
3 28285.7 WA4ROX Largo FL USA
3 28257.3 WA2DVU Cape May NJ USA
 
The results from the other ten challenges may be completed by tomorrow -
probably all together in a third part.

Progress is slow, but I'm keeping at it!
 
Attached is CLE177Pt3e5.xle, being the third stage of our Combined Results.
 
Stage 1 was the Twente Ten results (Europe and Rest of the World)
Stage 2 was the HF Hams Four, also for all of us.
 
The remaining results need to be split between Europe and the Rest.
Here now are Europe's results for the Santa-Seeker, the Bottom and Top  
Enders, the LF Hams Three, the Sick Six and the Sunny Seven.
 
That will leave the remaining 'challenges' to be processed together as a  
bumper bundle.
 
The Rest of the World's Stage 3, equivalent to the attached, will be next.
 
Even if you didn't take part in the Holiday CLE I think you will find  
interesting things in the attached tables.
 
Good listening
Brian
 
Here is the final part of the CLE results for Europe, attached as
CLE177Pt4e5.xls.
 
Stage 1 was the Twente Ten results (Europe and Rest of the World)
Stage 2 was the HF Hams Four, also for all of us.
Stage 3 was the Santa-Seeker, the Bottom and Top Enders, the LF Hams Three,
the Sick Six and the Sunny Seven.
 
These Stage 4 results cover the remaining 'challenges' - the Five Firsts,
the Entry Level Eight, the Noon Nearest Nine, the Exotic Eleven and the DX
Twelve.
 
The Rest of the World's Stage 4, equivalent to the attached, should be
completed quite soon.
 
Then, after time to take stock of what we did, I hope to have some
interesting comments on the CLE generally.
 
Good listening
Brian

PS I'm aware that I may have made some significant faux pas in combining
these results - I found a few and corrected them before posting, but there  
is a limit to the time you can spend checking things.
If you spot anything that looks wrong, especially if it affects several
entries, do please let me know direct or via the List.
I am unlikely to be able to re-process things from the beginning, but maybe
could go some of the way to put things right - and it might be in time to
help the last stage results for Rest of the World.
