Hi Johnny, 

That's great! I'm enjoying shortwave more and more at the moment - it's my preferred choice over anything else when I sit down at the desk.

Good luck!

Cheers, 
Mark.

Congratulations Mark!

You have actually inspired me to start (again) listening to some SW broadcasts/DX'ing.

Very cool!

What a week!

Mark
 

Hello radio friends, 

This week has been a great one, for my SW DXing endeavours. Everything happened all at once. 

I've beaten some personal records, picking up 9885kHz, World Christian Broadcast KNLS from Madagascar, 11885kHz voice of Vietnam and also Vatican radio on 7230kHz - which previously I've really struggled to lock on to. 

To round off the success of the last few days, I also managed to catch my first transatlantic DX, WWCR Nashville 13845kHz, from Edinburgh Scotland - of which I've attached a small clip. 

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Ola,

At my location Peru on MW is impossible, so we are even!

I also enjoy chasing long range DX with this model-- an S9 recording of 1017-A3Z in Tonga being received with this radio at the Rockwork ocean cliff in Oregon is posted at https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/tp3i89vky6p7hbylgkk1bp4pa5nvnuku

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.
