Hi again David and all
I’ve just found that there are a few videos on YouTube about this beastie that have answered all my original questions, certainly worth a look. It would appear there’s no noise reduction on this as there is on the ATS25, although this may be firmware. At this moment I’m more and more interested in this receiver. If anyone understands what this vid is about, please tell:

And this one answers a lot of questions:

Hi David
Does this mean you actually own one of these? If so, how do you change screens? Is there NR on it?  Many more questions, but it certainly looks like this will be the way forward; Mmm 🤔

Would that be classed as an ultralight? It sounds awesome.

Has the group ever considered running something like this?

In our photography club which also had an online presence element, we ran weekly / monthly photography challenges and a photo of the week / month competition.

Thanks for the prompt and reminder to do this. I need to focus on my "Long Term DXing Project" more...

Wow, so much to read about and learn.

It really sounds like any of these would work well for me. I guess the other side of the coin is what are some of the really bad brands and models to avoid?

Hi Johnny
You and I seem similar in one respect then, I get a hell of a kick out of stuff that I bought cheaply which turns out to be good! Particularly if something is just dirty and need a clean; I love it, and it’s the only part of perfectionism that stays with me after all my years.

I will also make some time to check that one out. It also had AIR, that might be interesting. Does anybody listen to that band much?

Try the Facebook group “Canadian Radio News”, which has a lot of the CRTC goings-on with regard to broadcast licenses, technical amendments, and such. (https://www.facebook.com/rwcrn)

They all sound like really good challenges. I am still working on what mine will be.

What is your personal challenge for 2022?

Johnny
 

Hi all,

What is/are your personal DX'ing challenge(s) for 2022?

Is it to...
1)  Hear all states/provinces/etc in your country?
2)  Hear the most stations you can?
3)  Just spin the dials a bit?
4)  Other?


I'll go first...

AM challenges
1)  To hear the most "Clear Channel" stations in the US that I can
2)  To hear all continental states in the US (sorry Hawaii and Alaska!)


FM challenges:
1)  To hear as many Michigan-only stations as I can
2)  To hear as many LPFM and Translators in Michigan as I can


Let's hear yours!

Hi Drifter,

Yep, I have a few radios (3 ish) that I seem to "keep coming back to", so I guess they are my favorites, LOL!

I really like all my radios generally, but these three are special!  :)

Funny thing is, they are probably some of the cheapest I own!

This hobby does not have to be expensive, it can be, but it doesn't have to be for sure!

Hi Johnny 

I suspect that your opening sentence applies to all of us, it certainly applies to me! Having caught the bug I went mad, buying all sorts of radios, any that included shortwave. From monsters to littlies, mostly analog readout just learning really. I then discovered Tecsun, digital readout, and this group. It still didn’t stop me buying a Panasonic RF-2200, which is soon to be opened to have it’s switches cleaned. My latest acquisition is the old Etón E5 which I’ve already posted about. Like you I’ve quickly realised there’s no ‘master of all’, you just have to decide which radio has a set of features that you enjoy using

Hello everyone. 
 
The UI and control firmware that took by storm all these recent DIY or pre-built receivers based on SiLabs has been developed by PU2CLR Ricardo Caratti in Brazil. I'd be surprised if Portuguese was included in the UI code.
 
Ricardo keeps two Facebook groups, another Groups.io reflector and a GitHub repo for the project. It's got a lot of traction and love from other RF and programming experimenters.

1490kHz: 1715 Mile Log!

Heard KLOG 1490 again late last week. Sounded like a news report on a bridge re opening and some story involving a disturbance involving a man and a woman: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DL6ph-Ko4AfNuVBo-ujF7nS44RwWbPWl/view?usp=sharing

This is my second log of them, the first one just a few months ago.. even clearer than last weeks log. Audio: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10mL2PnYBMowG-vk_CSg6_FTdhqQsE77Y/view?usp=sharing

Radio "News" sites?

Johnny
 

Hi all,

I get a little weekly email blip from RadioWorld (Radioworld.com) that tells a super high level "what's going on in the US Radio World" kind of thing.

Anybody else frequent any similar sites that you might recommend for radio news?

Always neat to hear the "future of radio".

Re: Most used ULTRAlight Radio

One more note...

I have acquired other radios as well (more than one person needs!), and I have tried HARD to find one radio that kind of "rules them all", like a super Jack of all Trades....  but it's true, then that radio is "master of none"...

I love Jay's Toolbox Analogy...
