    NOTE: This is FM-DX, long distance reception. It's for noncommercial, hobby purposes only. If this violates copyright please remove.

    QTH-discribtion: The "Hohe Wand" (engl. "Tall Wall") is a 1092 m tall mountain 55 km southwest of Vienna. There is nearly free sight to most of the sky directions. That means: The reception was AWESOME :D

    Tuner: Sangean ATS-909X + integraded telescope-antenna

    HRN 333: The HamKID
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Jul 8, 2017
    Sam Reynolds KM4WDK is The HamKid.

    The what now? Who says?

    Well, he does, based on producing a couple of episodes of his new YouTube show The HamKid, being a ham, and being... well, a kid. Sam is 13, but he was licensed almost a year ago, when he was 12.

    We'll talk about how he got into ham radio and YouTubing (is that technically podcasting?), scouting and stuff.

    And at 53:23 Gary will demo a side-by-side comparison of his PR-40 and a much cheaper Audio Technica mic, the ATR-2100, that all the podcasters are flocking to (at least those who don't have $350 to spend on a Heil mic).

We hear 2MBS-FM, KISS 106.5 FM, 2MMM-FM, 2DAY-FM abd ABC CLASSIC FM as well as ABC CLASSIC FM locally on 97.5 mhz. Quite good performance shown by this radio. Thanks for watching.

    Quick look at my Grundig Satellit 800 Millennium
    Phil Ireland



    Published on Jul 4, 2017
    Just a quick look at a radio recently aquired, the renowned Grundig Satellit 800 Millennium. Much has been said about these radios and they have certainly polarised the shortwave fraternity with endless discussion on the various quality shortcomings that have manifest themselves. Suffice to say, should you get one, make sure all functions work accordingly. QC issues like wobbling tuning knob and the LISB display are, in my opinion, minor. Do run the radio off a quality linear power supply to avoid extraneous noise as the original switch mode effort is next to useless. Having said all the above, the radio is an excellent performer with good audio. A definite keeper!
    Thanks for watching. Good DX....... Phil

    In this episode, I visit the top contenders for points in the ARRL West Gulf Division. MJARS, BVARC, and W5CT clubs are represented, with interviews for 2 of the clubs, and drone videos of their antenna setups. Field Day is a great way to GOTA, so let's take a look at how some of the top players do it!
