Apr19 01:37 The APS13 didn't make it back into service, lack of help and support. LM/FM29 (
Apr19 01:21 that is with something like a 2N2222 shunted across the appropriate pushbutton - de WA5IYX (
Apr19 01:18 I got as far as thinking a 555 timer pulse could step thru the Sony (all 20 mems) and pause for attended monitoring - de WA5IYX (
Apr19 01:15 re 22:28 - now if someone could design an add-on circuit to scan a few mems in a Sony/Sangean and stop if the AGC was a certain level - de WA5IYX (
Apr18 23:46 Music was late 1970s. > Yakima (
Apr18 23:46 GW ? 102.5 with oldies could have been a pirate/XM but maybe KZOK Seattle, very strong about a mile from home. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 23:45 Tr S 96.5 Unid rocker is back. Strong with rapid fading with KWLZ - KOZE Lewiston, ID? Oddly, best N-S. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 23:44 94.1 has KRDE in AZ, KMXB in NV and KMYI in CA as examples. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 23:42 2. All I have to do is try. There likely will be 94.1s in a skip path going into SD/MN. Ditto down in AZ/CA. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 23:42 1. 5/10 is just an example. There are others that I missed. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 22:55 [21:00] Hugh - Looks like that is on E3 vice A2 from Canary Islands, RTVC network? - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Apr18 22:28 If you lock in on frequencies #1 and #2, odds are pretty good that skip will be on #3 and #4. Unattended will work MUCH better in areas that get a lot of skip to start with ... Mike (
Apr18 22:27 One day does NOT a hobby make. You're fixated on one day. We don't know when or on what frequencies it will occur. ... Mike (
Apr18 21:55 The 5/10 opening was 4 hours long and netted several midday logs from Rick N6KCR in Seattle - all the way out to Central KS and 101.7 KREJ (well over 1300 mi). > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 21:53 Randy's also caught translators on 93.9 all from unattended tape. Who knows what I might get. Leave it on 88.9 all day, and during a big Es opening I might have a translator I'll never hear again. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 21:52 Maybe not completely ten-fold, but I could get some new rare logs from that. I know several DXers who have unattended recordings all the time. KW4RZ uses 93.9 - about his only fixed frequency. Results - he gets loads of stuff from NE US down to Central America depending on the opening. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 21:00 625 line Ch A2 caption received at 2000z in Portugal on 55.251...There's "Noticias" and 2 in the middle between the large lettering captions 73 Hugh in IM67 (
Apr18 18:06 We need to get away from sunspot counts and 10.7 cm flux values - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Apr18 18:05 Everyone can keep tabs on TLC's here, then see if Es becomes active later - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Apr18 17:03 wish someone wud do follow-up on this - de WA5IYX (
Apr18 16:16 Appearance of Night-Shining Clouds Has Increased - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Apr18 15:41 Today Finally might be the day where i get put back into action where as my aps13 will return to the roof. LM/FM29 (
Apr18 15:35 [14:14] I guess it depends what you live for. Also don't see how even two fixed freqs will increase reception tenfold ... Mike (
Apr18 14:23 if they were voice-only vs mixed musical content even 8-kbps might suffice - de WA5IYX (
Apr18 14:21 FWIW, all my WAV dubs from tapes are made at 22-kHz PCM (then turned into 16-kbps Real Audio) - de WA5IYX (
Apr18 14:19 Been using a car transmitter (7$ shipped) and a Tecsun for FM dx (20$) and very happy with results, that's within just about anybody's budget.... (
Apr18 14:18 Select the lowest (8 kbps) for the longest record time, but sound quality will degradedl with the built-in 1" speaker during playback. I suggest using a headphone. - KA3JAW FN20iq (
Apr18 14:17 Audacity takes up a lot of disk space, lots of free recording software record directly into mp3. First step is getting your dx to your PC however, after that the possibilities are near-endless (
Apr18 14:14 " May 10th last year... absolute lifesaver" come on get a life - de kb7wox cn85 (
Apr18 13:54 And should I use 128kbps or 48kbps for long Es recordings? > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:51 that could increase my Es logs ten-fold. On days like May 10th last year it could have been an absolute lifesaver. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:50 My ultimate goal is to have one on a low educational band frequency (either 88.9 or 88.7) and one on a higher frequency (either 94.1, 96.5 or 97.3). > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:49 OK. Maybe I'll get the $60 Sony, maybe I can find it cheaper on ebay. Will look at the model #. I would prefer two recorders (one for the G5 and the other for the G8) but I don't know if I can do that with my small budget. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:47 For 7 hours a day I am at work, however. About 3 miles away. What happens there? Can I just get a recorder, get Audacity, post after work every day to the computer and look over the strong waves (Es)? > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:29 Balcony, yard, neighbor's house if the transmitter's signal reaches the radio that you match-tune to it and connect to your PC, you're set... (
Apr18 13:23 I live in an apartment. I don't think they would like an antenna device on the roof of our building. I just want to record DX, while the Grundig is either out in the balcony, or in my room with the window open, on a pretuned frequency, 7 hours a day. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr18 13:15 Some of those even have internal rechargeable battery so no need to be plugged in to power source-could leave your Grundig on the roof if you want and do some very localised ''remote dxing'' ... (
Apr18 13:13 Connect the junk radio to your PC that is to say...that would even allow you to leave your Grundig in any location where reception is best and listen to it via any radio in the house, provided it can receive the car transmitter... (
Apr18 13:11 @Yakima: Could get one of those little car transmitters (10$ or less online) and connect it to your beloved Grundig, then use any junk radio to receive on the frequency of your choice in room where your PC is and connect that to using inline audio jack...--FN26 (
Apr18 13:08 @LM:Thanks, was fun to hear right through CKOI, Ms has been steadily increasing past few days--FN26 (
