Update: 02/08/2021
I have made a number of changes which has included adding the required code to support the new ULDXIndex system and these can be added directly to each entry. I have also made some changes to the backend database code and a few minor changes to the windows and layout.

I personally prefer the AR-1733 for my needs but both work well enough.

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.

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?

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

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

Mark Roberts
 

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.
