Re: Dawn loggings - Sept 21


Hi Paul:

Great going on the SRF-39! A clear ID from so far away attests to its
incredible abilities.

I record with an Olympus WS-300M recorder. It's got a MIC input which is
easily overloaded by the line-level output from the SRF, so I put an
attenuator on it. I monitor with headphones from the jack provided, which
allows me to make sure the recording level is proper. I have heard that
certain Sony pocket voice recorders (ICD-UX70 for one, I believe) are able
to handle line-level inputs. In either case, you may have to avoid the
highest quality setting, since these seems to give off a lot of RF.
However, even with the second-best setting, the fidelity is more than
enough for DX catches.

Hi all,

more great conditions this morning and more TA's to my stations heard

I really cant express how amazed I am by the SRF39FP  - at 0730 local /
0630 utc I heard a weak but very clear id from WYLL in Chicago on 1160 "
Chicagos Christian Choice". I was stunned - this is a good one from here
with a BOG and an NRD 545! Nevermind a tiny radio in the palm of my hand.
I need to get some way of recording this stuff - I dont think people will
believe it otherwise!.

With the loop added this one was THUMPING in.

others heard were

670    WSCR Chicago, IL   06:02  -sports talk (needed the 4 foot
loop for this one)
540    CBGA New Carlisle, QC    06:05 - FF om in talk - good signal
650    CKGA Gander, NL   06:07 - VOCM country fair signal
610    CHNC, New Carlisle, QC  06:11 - FF om in comedy talk -
excellent signal
730    CKAC Montreal, QC   06:18 - French talk - fair
760    WJR, Detroit MI    06:20 - talk / id - weakish

Anyone got any tips on taping from one of the sony's without introducing
noise etc?
