Thanks Gary, even these stations has 25 and 18 kw power it is a good catch for me. Tonga is a great dx. At my location Tonga is impossible.

Congratulations Ola,

Those are fantastic long range receptions with the 19cm loopstick D-808!

I myself love to chase long range DX with that receiver. At the Rockwork ocean cliff in Oregon I made this recording of 1017-A3Z in Tonga using the exact same model  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/xc2vsdzrlc84id81vcbsmgpqknkc5b1j

Re: AM 990 CBW?

Johnny
 

Hi Phil,

I typically try several internet streams of stations that I suspect it may be due to hints dropped in the broadcast, like references to places, stores, etc.

I also record the audio so that I can go back and hear that elusive ID should it "zip by" and I don't catch it.

Most of the time I get the ID during my listening, but on some occasions I have to get "creative" with an internet search.

ID'ing this way may not be everyone's cup of tea however, and I can respect that, but it is a method I have used for my personal logs.

Your tastes may vary...

Re: Analog radio with digital tuning

Hi Bob
That sounds really nice, and certainly substantial! It’s smaller than the recently mentioned http://www.mtmscientific.com/AM%20Loop%20Booklet.pdf
I was really surprised recently when looking at quality air gap caps at how expensive they’ve become. But I suppose that applies to anyone who’s as old as I am!

Hi Drifter

I have a home made loop. Wooden “x” @ 12”.  Made from 1x 4 stock. 18 ga wire - 24 wraps I think. I did invest in quality air gap tuning cap. Thanks for reply!

Re: AM 990 CBW?

Phil Pasteur
 

I read about people verifying reception using streaming from the Internet. My question is how do you do that if you do not have a station ID so you can find the stream? 
Johnny, as you do this, what is your process?

He might have said the letters but if so he said them fast and lowered his voice.

This evening I was able to get a CBN program loud and clear. It was the Tom Power show at about 9-10 PM CDT. Most likely that was from CBW in Winnipeg, 727 miles north of me. But CBY in NL is at the same frequency. 2131 miles. Signal faded before I could hear the call sign. darn. Almost got it but this is not a definite log entry.
Do CBC stations *ever* say their call letters?

I know it's hard for some to understand, but Canadian stations are not
required to follow FCC rules. :) In fact, I'm not sure whether or
not Canadian broadcasters are required to ever say their call letters.
Call letters used to be a station's branding but that hasn't been true
in Canada for some time.

Hi James,

Wow!  Pretty cool catch!

Hey, do you use the internet to ID stations at all?  Sometimes you can match what you hear to the live stream of the station.

I sometimes do that... might not be everyone's preferred methodology...  Sometimes waiting for that definitive ID is sometimes tough...

Hi Bob
In answer to your first question, my selection would be the Etón E5, I’m sure more informed comments will follow, I’m new to the game. I now have a question for you, what was/is the loop you referred to please?

Analog radio with digital tuning

dwight richardson
 

Hi group

Just off the top of you heads, what was (is) a good ANALOG tuning radio with DIGITAL COUNTER?    SW is optional.

Bought Coby cx53 for $5 on a whim  Awful  Hard to tune, barely gets locals  Local mw strong locals overpower weak ones  BUT I  stuck it in my loop last night!  WOW!  Like night and day  I tuned WGN 720 but I could tune the entire mw band on the radio using just my loop  could hear WGN in background but I could get WSM 650 and a local at 1420 great with the radio still tuned to 720  Also unexpectedly the RF interference was gone!  My house has lots of interference too  All gone  Reception great. 

Digital tuning have anything to do with it or would my SRF-39 do this as well?  I’m 68 and digital works for me. Hence original question about analog with digital tuning. 

Thanks

Bob
