    MW DX: summertime signal from CBC Radio 1, 750 kHz, Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland & Labrador,
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Aug 30, 2017
    Hi there, another CBC transmission that I haven't copied since January and another welcome catch as we move closer to the MW DX season. This signal can boom into Oxford during the winter months, but still great to catch a weaker signal in August.

    There is an ID at 0:51 and the CBC interval music here 01:53

    Recorded in Oxford UK using an Elad FMD DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 active loop antenna outdoors on 28/08/17 at 03:58 hrs UTC. Thanks for watching.

    Hi there, it's not always about ultimate performance and SDR...there's something very satisfying about catching a rather exotic signal on the tropical band with a vintage receiver.

    QSO with VE7RAC in BC with 2 QRP rigs on SSB

    Published on Aug 30, 2017
    August 29 2017 I was lurking around the 20 meter ham band and heard VE7RAC calling CQ with no takers, so I took a chance using the mcHF RS-918 radio first at 7 watts SSB and worked the station. I then switched over and worked VE7RAC at 5 watts SSB both contacts were into a windom antenna.

    Playing outside with the X5105 in the sun and seeing if bands are doing any better today. No contacts but Reverse Beacon Network is picking my 5 watts up.
    Will continue to play with various antennas. The radio needs a good counterpoise connection for wires though when running whips.
