Oct14 13:57 list of my 1968-1975 reel-to-reel VHF DX tapes - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:55 I spent more time listening to the AM broadcast band. The AM radio in my pinto was pretty darn good. (
Oct14 13:53 I probably hear a few of those driving down the highway between work, home, play and college back then in Houston de ka5dwi (
Oct14 13:51 Unfortunately, later software requirements made it not so good, and the board and drive went bad. (
Oct14 13:50 index of a C60 with things dubbed from r-to-r - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:49 It did have an excellent Dell Win 98 desktop that recorded a few openings around 2000-2003. It had a great audio interface and controls (Creative) (
Oct14 13:44 I later dubbed the audio back to a C90 - I had to leave the 872 run as it had 7-sec delay to start recording - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:42 and during one FM Es event a unit failed and I had to quickly route the audio to the Emerson 872 VCR and use a T-120 with a blank screen for vid - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:40 at least once the C60/90 tape got into the "wrong" unit - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:39 One got taken in a meeting, two in a garage sale. Miss them all. Computer recordings are a hassle cause you have to be ready and stop there interfaces (ie rigblaster) (
Oct14 13:38 much of the 1979-2000 period I had two active units - one for VHF DX and the other for getting the WWV propcasts at 18 after - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:36 I have a couple of tapes hiding in a box somewhere in this new house. :) My 2M Es QSO NTX-NH is on one. de ka5dwi (
Oct14 13:35 I must have worn out well over a dozen cassette recoder units since 1979 - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 13:34 It was nice to be a young executive in a big company so I could use it for other reasons hi hi. de dwi (
Oct14 13:31 I use to record my openings with either a Dictaphone or a Panasonic. They had VOX capabilities. de dwi (
Oct14 03:47 That 1968 r-to-r machine was ostensibly gotten to help with my Russian courses at UT Austin but soon found plenty of other uses :> - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:44 I got my first cassette audio recorder in 1975 but stuck with reels as cheaper than C60s/C90s - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:42 So from that era they all have to be "speed adjusted" in Wavepad so as to not sound like Munchkins - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:40 the 73-79 tapes are problematical as the RS r-to-r machine slowed from 1-7/8 ips over those years - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:39 then I can think about making literally thousands of more audio clips from them and the r-to-r tapes back to the early 70s - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:37 if I ever again enough "tranquil" time I 'll review the FM C90s for 2013-2014 and finalize the logs and station count data - de WA5IYX (
Oct14 03:23 You are the only ones making an excellent attempt in ID'ing possibilities of propagation. de ka5dwi dm34un (
Oct14 03:22 I put together a Propagation Page on the SWOT Homepage and linked you guys. (
Oct14 03:21 Hi Pat, That same front eliminated chances in AZ today, but it looks better there. de art ka5dwi (
Oct13 18:59 Ms 93.1 KQID Alexandria, LA- short burst with Taylor Swift 'Shake' and song match-- 814 miles-- EN71 S. Michigan (
Oct13 18:24 details on that incident - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 18:21 as is, the SAFD has been a couple of hours at a church fire (metal building) with the wind - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 18:19 it'd calmed down by the time that it got to here othewise I'd probably be picking up some debris (other than leaves) around here - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 17:33 Pat: We had the 60mph winds with the same cold front yesterday. ed n5jeh dm65rd (
Oct13 17:23 Tues morning lows here are forecasted to be in the low 50sF- de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Oct13 17:21 anyway, no ducting to be concerned with here for a while as a cold front passage this morning with north winds 20-30 mph now - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Oct13 17:08 and, if any "special" launches were made, they would not likely be in the relatively stable/tranquil conditions that favor ducting - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:59 with those profiles only regularly taken at 00z and 12z some of the rapid-change details are missed - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:57 IOW, what was a local ground-effective duct during night changed to an elevated duct in the day - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:55 those Stuve plots made me rethink it as due to the land-portion inversion simply going to higher ASL with daylight heating, etc - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:51 while the Gulf segment maintained itself and the ends reformed soon after sundown - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:48 with the ends of the ducts over land (which heats/cools more rapidly than water) I used to think that in daytime those ends "burned off" - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Oct13 16:44 since no one (regularly) releases radiosondes over the Gulf I've always assumed that ducting across it is at a few thousand ft ASL - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Oct13 16:41 Very thorough presentation, Art. Surprised at strong T-storms with low upper-level winds - de WA5IYX (
Oct13 16:37 Forgot El Paso is 362.6 km from me. ed n5jeh dm65rd (
Oct13 16:35 We notice the same on 2 meters between Albuquerque and El Paso. Problem is some one on the other end. Everyone has dissapeared from 2 meter prop testing. Ed N5jeh dm65rd (
Oct13 14:05 Hi Pat and all. For your reading enjoyment. Search for Tropo in AZ de art ka6dwi dm34un (
