Radio Cultura Ondas Manaus 4845 kHz, Manaus, Brazil, copied with Eton Satellit and Sangean ATS-909x
Oxford Shortwave Log


Published on Aug 14, 2017
Hi there, Radio Cultura Ondas Manaus is a rare catch in the shack, unlike Difusora de Roraima & Rádio Clube do Pará, for example, which are heard often. It's always been my experience that a DXpedition is necessary to obtain a decent signal from this station...and here it is! Once again, no surprise that the Satellit delivers clearer audio, but really nice to copy them also on the 909x.

Recorded in Oxford UK on 13/05/17 at 00:23 hrs UTC using a 50 metre longwire antenna. Ignore the time differences, there was only a few seconds between recordings. Thanks for watching.

Here is my decode of the Shortwave Radiogram broadcast today on 7730Khz shortwave radio at 0600UTC in MFSK32 and with 10 SSTV images of the Channel Islands by Neil Howard. This is the first of 2 SSTV photo summer specials. The broadcast was received in Toronto using the timer/record function of my Icom IC-R8600 radio and later decoded with the Linux version of Fldigi.

The 30 Meter Ham Radio Band, 10mhz Amateur Radio, CW/PSK31/FT-8/JT65
HamRadioConcepts


Published on Aug 13, 2017
Here is a short video explaining 30 meters. Have you ever operated on 30 meters? 10 mhz is what I call a "Hidden GEM" because not of people utilize it, there is less noise and more propagation than one would think. Check it out.

HRN 343: TOTALED!! on Ham Radio Now
HamRadioNow


Published on Aug 25, 2017
Jeff AC4ZO, his wife Bobbie KD4ZVW and Gary KN4AQ traveled to Wyoming and became Eclipse Evangelists. Totality Or Bust is their new motto. And Totality is what they got, in a clear, blue sky.

Gary's wife Cyndi KD4ACW took her parents to South Carolina - a much more 'iffy' location for weather - and got lucky (and lunch) with a clear sky. David W0DHG got all the way down to a parking lot in Los Angeles and saw a pinhole crescent shadow.

This episode is their story. Jeff, Bobbie and Gary spent a couple days being tourists around the Denver area (Pikes Peak, WWV, Red Rocks, a kite shop..) and visited the Denver Ham Radio Outlet and a local hamfest that just happened to be that weekend (and where Gary was recognized as the celebrity he is), and you'll see snippits of that.

Gary set up two - TWO - mobile radios in a rental Jeep — a dual-band D-STAR radio and a UHF DMR radio, hoping to catch some ARES activity. He did, but not much. So there's very little ham radio in this episode. You won't miss it.

You won't miss it because the Eclipse was the thing. They'd all seen partial eclipses before, but this was to be their first total. Old hands (and photographers) will tell you to avoid futzing with the camera and just watch it happen. You've only got a few minutes to see something you might, if you're lucky, see a couple times in a lifetime.

So of course Jeff and Gary both futzed with cameras, but spent at least *some* time watching the real thing with real, wide eyes. Gary did follow the pro's advice enough to point his video camera at the people, not the sky, as totality approached. And that turned out to be a really good idea.

Extra thanks to Frank NF9H and KC KC9MTL, who contacted Gary after seeing a previous HRN episode where he talked about going to Wyoming. Frank had seen 10 total eclipses in his life, and had a Wyoming location scoped out in advance, not far from where Jeff had planned for their trip. Jeff looked at Frank's spot, realized it was way better, and we asked if we could join them. Frank invited us along, and we had great company in addition to a prime viewing spot.

Frank's web site has pictures and stories of this trip and his previous adventures. Check it out:
