[HCDX]: weekend DX

Reporter: Mark Connelly, WA1ION
Receiver: Drake R8A
Antenna system: cardioid array of Active Whip
and Broadband Loop on car roof; Superphaser-1
Phasing Unit
Logs from Cape Cod in parallel with the BADX
Rockport outing:

I did a quick listening session from the town
landing site near the Route 28 / Tar Kiln Road
intersection in South Orleans, MA.  I listened
from 2245 UTC on 4 MAR through 0030 UTC on 5 MAR.
Trans-Atlantics were better at the beginning of
the session, Latin Americans towards the end.
At no time could I say that it was auroral,
except perhaps on the bottom of the dial in
a few brief spurts.

Logs in summary follow.  A more thorough report
will be issued later.
