11 meter DX Logs 14 Febuary 2016 1900 UTC +
« on: February 14, 2016, 1955 UTC »
RX equipment:  random wire antenna + tuner or 1/2 wave dipole cut for ~26.5 MHz.  Voyage VR9000 (made by Ranger/RCI, same radio as Superstar 3900-F or Galaxy DX 88).  CRE 8900 (aka Alinco DR-10/DR-135CB/DR-135UK).  Galaxy DX 959 with RX section mods, Lescomm 120 channel frequency board (26515-26955, 26965-27405, 27415-27855), Icom IC-707, Grundig G3, Cobra 29XLR (858 PLL board)

Should be noted that these radios show different S-meter readings.  The CRE 8900 generally shows a S4 to S5 level noise floor and the Galaxy 959 will show a S1 to S2 noise floor on the same antenna, same conditions, same time etc.

The 25615-26065 band (usually "Band A" on export radios) was empty this go-around.  Note the out-of-sequence channel numbering for channels 23, 24 and 25.  This is due to the original 23-channel CB band having channel 22 be 27225 and then 23 at 27255.  When CB was expanded to 40 channels, they "filled in" the two channel space between 27225 and 27255 with channels 24 and 25.
