    It was too early to get decent reception on the 41mb,local time was 18:30 ADT when the broadcast started.

    I was able to pick up a signal and if you listen carefully you can make some speech out.

    Heard in Nova Scotia Canada using the SdrPlay RSP1 and 60ft random wire.

    TheScottytr6



    Published on Jun 24, 2017
    Here is my decode of the first of Kims New Shortwave Radiogram broadcasts today on 7730Khz shortwave radio at 0600UTC in MFSK32 and with 6 SSTV images. There is news of Soviet-US Hotline, More Earth-sized planets found, New Shortwave listening guide and the ARRL field day. Signal was variable mostly S5-S7. 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 continuing these interesting broadcasts in his retirement.

    Awesome ShortWave Active Loop Antenna that KICKS BUTT !

    Have you seen those shortwave active loop antennas by Degen being sold on eBay ?
    Those might work OK in temporary situations but they are not suitable for outside permanent installation as your main shortwave radio antenna.

    And then there are those expensive Welbrook brand loops , among others ....

    In todays video I show you the active shortwave loop antenna that I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.
    This shortwave radio active antenna works EXTREMELY well.

    For those needing a shortwave antenna that is vastly better than the Degen TOY one ,, but don't want to spend a fortune for a Welbrook , then what I made is perfect.

    I never expected this shortwave active loop antenna to work so well.
    Of course a low mounted shortwave antenna does have limitations , and can never replace a full sized external shortwave antenna.

    Today we are at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs, Florida for Field Day 2017. This is my 300th video on YouTube and my 5th Field Day Event.

    August 2017 will mark my 5th year as a Ham Radio Operator and I have enjoyed the hobby and all the great friends I have made around the world. I invite you all to consider becoming a ham radio operator a hobby that one day could save your life or the life of others.

    When the grid goes down ham radio operators will be on the air will you?
