    Published on Feb 12, 2017
    I hope you enjoy this video. This is my best attempt to bring the idea of hamfest to the newcomer to hobby, or someone that is interested in becoming a ham. There was not enough time to stop at every table and booth, but the idea here is to get a picture of what you might see at Orlando Hamcation. Orlando is the 2nd largest in the USA. Please share this to your groups, or post anywhere you would like. Full length clips of the commercial vendors and products in this video are available on my channel. 73 all

    MW DX: CBNA CBC Radio 1, 600 kHz, Saint Anthony, N&L, Canada
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Feb 15, 2017
    Hi there, my first indoor reception of CBC Radio 1 on 600 kHz since last October and only the third time I've heard them indoors. It's always pleasing to catch transatlantic medium wave DX on low frequencies and so this was pleasing. CBC Radio 1 make regular appearances on medium wave spectrum recordings, but nearly always at their higher TX frequencies. Recorded in Oxford UK on 16/12/17 at 02:58 hrs UTC using an Elad FDM DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 active loop antenna (indoors). Thanks for watching.

    MW DX into Oxford at 8 am: WENE Fox Sports 1430 Endicott, NY, best reception to date & clear ID
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Feb 14, 2017
    Hi there, I'd only heard this station once previously when this recording was made, so very happy with this second reception. Once again, significant adjacent channel QRM but the Elad's phenomenal selectivity makes short work of it. I have a small collection of reception videos for transatlantic signals still clearly heard at my QTH at 8 am - more to follow. Recorded in Oxford UK on 16/12/16 at 07:59 hrs UTC and 07:59 hrs BST using an Elad FDM DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 active loop antenna (indoors). Thanks for watching.

    SSB On CB Radio, Plenty Calling In Today on 27.305 USB

    SSB on CB Radio. Plenty Calling In Today on 27.305 USB.
    Today there was at least ten stations on the 27,305 USB.
    No real dx , but all the signs are good.
    People are coming back to cb radio, at last and so far not one dick head in sight. :o)
    26 Division is changing here, with hard line 555 users even joining in.
    What may happen during the summer , and skip permiting, more dx stations will come looking for us on our legal frequencies.
    Putting us firmly back on the cb radio map.
