Re: Operation time on PL330

Zacharias Liangas
 

Thank you but my question refers to the time the radio can drain the fully charged inbuilt battery from fully charged to" lo bat"at a given audio level
My example
My  PL 380 can operate around 25 hours with earphones at audio level 6-7 a standard audio level if using Sony in ear buds
The DE 1102 can operate ard 8 hours

I noted the tunning knob isn't well balanced. Seems like a chariot wheel...

You're welcome Nick.
I got some Asian stations in Summer using my Airspy HF+ Discovery and an outdoor telescopic whip, but of course Winter is better.

Thanks for posting the Asian DX, Peter.   You're doing quite a bit better than I did in Lilongwe seven months ago using an RSPdx and an ALA1530 loop.   Of course, that was the height of summer. Perhaps another trip in the winter should be planned?

best wishes,

Nick

Re: WFNI 1070 Indianapolis (ex WIBC) going off 8/2

In the middle of the U.S., 1070 is a very messy frequency at night. KHMO Hannibal, MO; WDIA Memphis, TN (a legendary station); KFTI (formerly KFDI) Wichita, KS; KNTH Houston, TX all have nighttime directional signals with sharp nulls. As with so many other nighttime Houston DAs, KNTH sends most of its signal out over the Gulf of Mexico.

When I lived in Houston, I could always hear a little bit of KNX underneath KRBE (what's now KNTH) at night.

At my present location in the San Francisco Bay Area, KNX comes in well most nights, of course. I recently took a short vacation near Sonora, California, and KNX was a steady presence there every night.

I don't doubt that KFI is underneath WFNI at least a few times a year but DXers in Illinois hear them a time or two a year.  I did manage them once but my odds are increasing for a relog and maybe a new ULR logbook.

Re: Air Band Receivers

airnav covers a limited list of countries, a more world-wide site is skyvector, e.g. https://skyvector.com/airports/Portugal
Skyvector includes charts as well of course which are useful for air band monitoring (location of navaids, waypoints etc)

Yes it was. Not a station I log that often.

Here in Australia we have the AR-1733 and AR-1780 that both cover this band.

Radio Reference -- https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/ -- is an excellent source of frequency information of all sorts, including aviation.

 

I have used it for United States information, and there are pull-downs on the right for other countries, although I don't know how complete or accurate the information is for other countries.

The really astronomical indexes come from low-powered Longwave aeronautical beacons (NDB's) received at ranges over 10,000 km across the equator. 362-WK in Whakatane, New Zealand (25 watts at 11,017 km from Manzanita, Oregon) results in a wacky index of 440.68, while 366-SF in Springfield, New Zealand (50 watts at 10,977 km from Manzanita, Oregon) results in a more modest 219.54.

The best medium wave DX index at the same Rockwork Cliff would be for reception of 558-7BU in Burnie, Tasmania, Australia during the August 2017 DXpedition. That 2,000 watt station was received at 13,128 km from Manzanita, for a very modest index of 6.56.

Excellent point. I think keeping LW and MW separate is a good idea as the numbers for LW can be much higher. 
6.56 for 7BU is a good effort, sadly they switched to FM a couple of years ago. This has had the advantage of helping me as it has opened up 558kHz for some DX from QLD and WA.
