    TamithaSkov



    Published on Dec 11, 2016
    The Sun picked up in activity this past week bringing us a some flares, a nice filament eruption, and a solar storm that gave us aurora at high latitudes all over the world. We are now in the middle of some fast wind that will wane over the next few days. Catch up on the latest aurora photos and see what else the Sun has in store.

    HRN 286: Contact Sport on HamRadioNow
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Dec 10, 2016
    Author Jim George (JK George) N3BB talked to Gary about his (relatively) new book Contact Sport at the 2016 Dayton Hamvention®. The book takes you deep into the world of the participants of the 2014 WRTC (World RadioSport Team Championship), perhaps the most elite contest in Amateur Radio. Jim was embedded with one of the teams, but got lots of additional detail through interviews (and spies?). As a former WRTC competitor and referee, he knew what to look for. And as a writer, he knew how to tell the story.

    Published on Dec 13, 2016
    If you are a DMR user, then you likely have a Connect Systems Radio as one of your radios. Most people do. They have some great, low-priced options, including their popular CS800 mobile radio. This new model is another HT, but it offers some cool features that you won't find in any other DMR radio at this time.

    Published on Dec 14, 2016
    Hi there, here is a review of the 100 signals detected with the ETM scan function on the brilliant little Tecsun PL-310ET. I tried this the previous week and it detected 124 signals. Another little experiment that only requires the radio in your pocket, a 3.5 mm plug wired to a crocodile clip and your phone. Recorded in Oxford UK on 02/12/16 at 15:50 hrs UTC. Thanks for watching.

    Some have asked about having a closer look at the station. So here's a quick look at the equipment and a longer look at a partially homemade linear amplifier.

    MW DX with 200 m Beverage: VOWR 800 kHz, St. John's, N&L, first reception, with ID
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Dec 15, 2016
    Hi there, I was very pleased with this personal first, copied during the initial testing of the Beverage antenna. According to MWList.org, they TX at 10 kW during daylight hours and 2.5 kW at night, which might explain why their signal had evaded me up to this point lol. Planty of adjacent channel QRM on 800 kHz, but LSB and an audio bandwidth filter of 1.95 kHz sorted things out - what a phenomenally selective receiver the Elad is, particularly when controlled via the FDM-SW2 software. Recorded in Oxford, UK on 10/10/16 at 01:58 hrs UTC using an Elad FDM DUO. Thanks for watching.

    2850 kHz North Korea Shortwave via Long Path Propagation Heard in Michigan
    KILOKAT7



    Published on Dec 14, 2016
    North Korea heard in Michigan during the early evening when the gray line terminator favors both Michigan and North Korea. Reception only audible on my South antenna and the signal almost disappeared when switching to the North antenna, so I assume this is long path propagation at work. Though a typical DX catch during my sunrise, it is somewhat unusual to catch 2850 during the evening here.

    France Bleu Breizh Izel 1071 kHz, DRM on medium wave from across the English Channel!
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Dec 16, 2016
    Hi there, Mad Radio DXer posted a reception video of this signal a couple of days ago and whilst scanning the MW band this morning, I came across it myself. The audio fidelity actually sounded very good, however, the signal kept dropping out and that's the problem with DRM....the zeros and ones either arrive or they don't. Recorded in Oxford UK on 16/12/16 at 01:01 hours UTC using an Elad FDM DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 active loop antenna (indoors). Thanks for watching.

    MW DX with 200 m Beverage: WBTA Batavia News Radio 1490 khz, New York, 710 Watts TX power!
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Dec 16, 2016
    Hi there, very pleased with this catch, another personal first and another station in New York. My thanks to Matthias (senderjaeger) for his assistance with the ID. With a daytime TX power of 1 kW and only 710 Watts at night, this is a challenging signal to hear and probably made possible because of the large antenna. Recorded in Oxford UK on 10/10/16 at 01:59 hrs UTC using an Elad FDM DUO. Thanks for watching.
