Thanks. I will add that in to my new logging system.

I might add an option for both methods and run them side by side.

The tuning modes are that you either manually enter a frequency via the keypad

frequency, say from 531kHz to 540kHz, you need to either enter each frequency

I have a TIVDIO V-115, which should be the same as the Retekess version.
On my specimen I can scroll from one frequency to another by pressing the record player controls "Fast Forwards" or "Fast Backwards".

I don't like how the AGC behaves on thisreceiver, but the recording function is very good, so I am using it as an audio recorder only.

Interesting news about the battery Paul.

i’ve had the opposite experience as I love the full sound of this radio and listen to it every night, primarily to my own part 15 AM and FM stations that are streaming WQXR on the AM side and CFZM’s Big Band Sunday Night on w FM side.  

Charging hasn’t been a problem and again due to the sound quality my other ultralights such as the CCrane sky wave, XHDATA808 Tecsun PL3108 etc  sit


Best regards,

Nice logging.

Just as a follow up to this, a couple of months later and I have notice the battery life has really dropped off badly. I have decided given the low cost of this radio that I won't be replacing the battery and instead I will be retiring this radio. It has had little use in the past few months so it is possible the battery has dropped down to such a low level that it won't fully charge now.


Gold 1503kHz NZ In Alaska

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

It made a somewhat OK showing today, some 7000 miles away with Dire Straits and "Money For Nothing".

Audio from my CCrane Skywave using the 5" FSL:

Paul


Yanbian RGD 1206kHz

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

This one isnt uncommon here in Alaska, but it can be hit or miss signal strength wise. Well, I had a good signal this morning so I wanted to record a bit.. I had to go inside to use the bathroom, I left it recording, attended to a few things and came outside about 14 minutes later.. the signal was still there! Listening back it did fade to oblivion a few times, but the signal overall held out for over 14 minutes

Audio:


CNR1 945kHz Jiaohe W/Station ID

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

945 was once again a blistering signal this morning and I noticed I had that signal right near TOH so I decided to record it, maybe this will be useful/helpful to someone at some point

Alaska AM DX Sun. Oct 24

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

Asians Asians Asians Asians and more Asians, including some not usually heard here or heard well.

945 and 981 CNR1 were the usual paint peelers. Also had CNR1 on 1251 from Harbin.

1206 Yanbian can be hit or miss but was pretty strong today. Started recording, ran inside to use the facilities... did a bit of work, came back 14 minutes later and the signal was still there. 


The lower end of the band was better then usual with a good visit from the Norkies on 873.

I also had KBS on 864 and 558.... 558 is rare here as I recall, 864 isnt too rare but not a frequent visitor/very good.

I had a 603khz playing music I wasnt able to ID yet

1287 JOHR Saporro, Japoan was fairly good, as usual, but 1440 JOWF Saporro wasnt

It seemed above 1300khz ish the band wasnt as good but I cant say why.  Alot of the higher powered stuff is lower down.  But some of the lower powered Japanese stuff and even some of the higher powered China stuff above 1300 wasnt that great today.   If 1287 Saporro is in good, 1440 JOWF usually is... but it wasnt today.

Some pretty good, extended time on and off with 1413 "Vesti FM" Moldova.

Had my first sighting of 1062 Turkey and it wasnt too bad.

Had Romania on 1053 and 1179. 1053 was ok in short spurts but you can clearly hear the 3rd harmonic of my local 1kw beacon underneath.

Had Iran on 1026 and Lithuania on 1386

The ionosphere delivered a meltdown DU session yesterday morning with several stations exceeding their best-ever audio, even in the summer Rockwork 4 DXpeditions. 531-2PM and 1017-Newstalk ZB were two such stations, although there were probably many more that couldn't be tracked down with live DXing. The DU's were pounding in even on the Asian side of the cliff at my 1330 start time, and all three FSL's were carried over to the DU side (in between the "squatters," who had been there all night long). 531-2PM's SRN talk was freakishly loud at 1410, continuing for a full half hour. 558-Fiji made a modest appearance (with ID) at 1423, while 1017-Tonga was as meltdown level for most of the session, only to be replaced by Newstalk ZB at 1430, also at a meltdown level.
Chasing DU's in October wasn't exactly part of the DXpedition master plan, but signals like this definitely get your attention, regardless of your preferences. Wild and wacky!
