    In this EmComm Extra, Rick joins HamRadioNow hosts David Goldenberg W0DHG and Gary Pearce KN4AQ for what's basically an EmComm Bull Session (but we stuck with the EmComm number, not a BS number, in a futile attempt to keep it simple).

    HRN 328: Carl Laufer's RTL-SDR on HamRadioNow
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Jun 10, 2017
    Carl Laufer isn't a ham (yet), but he got caught up in the RTL-SDR craze in his home town, Auckland NZ, as he was completing his PHD. He began writing about them, and selling them, on his blog at www.RTL-SDR.com, and soon discovered that the little SDR receiver dongles could stand some improvement.

    So he designed ways to make them work better, and contracted a Chinese manufacturer to build them with his mods. That just about doubled the price, from $10 to about $20. Yeah, big deal.

    TAPR invited Carl to come to the 2017 Dayton Hamvention to talk about them at both their Friday Forum (part of HamRadioNow Episode 324) and as the main speaker at the TAPR/AMSAT Banquet.

    And we got him for a conversation with HamRadioNow's KN4AQ and PhasingLine's Chicken With Fries in the SIB back in Tent City.

    Gongs and Chimes Station (1970s-1990)

    Published on Jun 11, 2017
    One of the popular numbers stations, G3 was a regular broadcaster during the height of the Cold War and was heard around Europe. It made a quick exit a few months after demolition of the Berlin Wall...

    [1]Daily evening broadcasts:1800hrs to 2300hrs UTC on 3258 kHz
    Saturday morning broadcast: 1000hrs UTC on 5410 kHz
    http://www.simonmason.karoo.net/page7...

    [2]Some info on the activities of the foreign intelligence branch of the Stasi, HVA under the notorious spymaster, Markus Wolf popularized as 'Karla' in the John Le Carre's novels. https://www.cia.gov/library/center-fo...

    [3]"Interesting Footnote. The thawing of the "Cold War", initiated by Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, which lead to the Brussels conference of world powers in November 1990, finally silenced the East German numbers stations on the evening of Wednesday, 9 May, 1990, when final messages were sent out to agents in the field. As the West German DPA news agency reported;

    "They were always preceded by a gong being struck several times. Then on shortwave, a frequency of 3220 kHz, (really 3258kHz) one heard a synthetic voice speaking in a metallic tone: eg. one, seven, five, three, eight, combinations of numbers in groups of five conveying coded news from East Berlin to agents in the FGR and neighbouring foreign countries. Once again the routine broadcast was expected on Thursday evening by the FGR counter intelligence service, but it never came. The voice of espionage has fallen silent."

    HRN (PhasingLine) 329: No morePOTA
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Jun 11, 2017
    This is officially a PhasingLinePodcast, recorded in the SIB that we shared with Marty KC1CWF (the Chicken With Fries). So if you subscribe to their show, you've probably already heard this show. All we can offer is this video.

    But just in case...

    Emily Saldana KB3VVE is (was) a self-described NPOTA addict. NPOTA is National Parks On The Air, the ARRL's year-long on-air celebration of the centennial of the USA National Parks system. It was a follow-up to the ARRL's own centennial celebration with W1AW stations operating from each state the previous year. While the W1AW event stations were limited to a select few in each state, NPOTA allowed for every ham who wanted to activate a national park to get out and create pile-ups.

    Emily activated 53 parks, including the Statue of Liberty and several parks in the Washington DC area. That made here one of the top activators, as well as being one of the top chasers working as many parks as they could.

    And the "Rapid Response" activity that Gary fumbles to remember is actually the RaDAR Rapid Deployment of Amateur Radio group. They don't have a web site per se that we've been able to find. A Google search will turn up a bunch of sites, including their Google Group that seems to be the focus of their activity.

    The Final Voice of America VOA Radiogram June 17 2017 on 17580Khz Shortwave Radio

    Here is my (auto muted due to 2 copyright claims) decode of the final VOA News radiogram broadcast today on 17580Khz shortwave radio at 1600UTC in MFSK32 and Olivia64-2K, and with 7 SSTV images. There is news of the end of the VOA radiogram and the start of the Shortwave Radiogram with photos of the transmitter site and the people who run it. Signal was variable mostly S9+. The broadcast was received in Toronto on my Icom IC-R9500 radio and decoded with the Linux version of FLDIGI. Many thanks to Kim Andrew Elliot for the last of many interesting VOA broadcasts. Looking forward to the new broadcasts on WRMI.
