Hello,

We are delighted to show a prototype of our upcoming Airspy Ranger

Receiver which improves over the HF+ Discovery architecture and adds
zero gap frequency coverage between 0.5 kHz and 1.750 GHz, along with
many premium features. The detailed specifications will be shared
in place, so come visit us!

Regards,

The Airspy Team

Cool, the other morning I tried to bring up WPRRs online stream, since I noticed the format looked to be the same, but it wasn't working. Thanks!

6870 USB 1450 UTC 16 SEP 2021

These guys have been on a lot on-and-off this morning... Complaining about catch totals etc.

I have noticed they whistle into the mic when they call each other.... Could be to kick off an autotuner, or maybe just to get the other's attention.

Have them about S3 here..

1923: Baby It's Cold Outside - Ray Charles and Betty Carter
1928: Pocahontas - Neil Young
