The RF Workbench / Help with a Ten Tec RX340
« on: November 23, 2023, 1722 UTC »
Hello all,
I have an (old) RX-340 and recently the light (bulb?) that illuminates the S meter has burnt out/died.
Is there anyone interested in fixing this for me if I were to UPS or Fed Ex it to them - of course I anticipate paying for this to be done.  I am near Chicago so if you are too I would be willing to drop it off and pick it up.
Thanks and if you’d rather contact me offline, my email is in my profile.
Thanks for reading my post.

General Radio Discussion / Gone for good?
« on: November 11, 2023, 2154 UTC »
I would have to check my log book but it has been at least 2 or 3 years since Edmund Fitzgerald Radio has been logged/reported/on the air.
They were always a favorite of mine and they were good about sending QSLs for accurate reports.  They were a regular around 11/8,9,10 to mark the anniversary of the day that the ship went down in 1975 on November the 10th.
I see SO MANY “unid” stations being reported that as somebody that’s been listening to pirates for 40 plus years I find it sad that EFR may have joined the “gone for good” list while stations that just don’t even identify themselves seem to proliferate - it is very sad.  Heck, it can’t be too hard to come up with a station name - even a bad one.
Oh well,
FPE

The RF Workbench / Here’s a good one!
« on: October 02, 2023, 2341 UTC »
Anyone have a fix for this?
While taking the antenna feed/lead off of a Wellbrook loop today I realized that the small center copper (?) wire at the center of the male bnc connector on the lead has broken off flush and is still “in” the center hole of the female bnc connector that protrudes from the base of a typical Wellbrook loop head.
Any body have any idea how I might get that small bit of wire out???
This could only happen to me.
Thx

For Sale / Wanted / Barter / Advice
« on: February 12, 2023, 1959 UTC »
Hello all - I am looking to part ways with some of my desktop receivers and associated equipment like audio processors, antenna tuners, etc.
My guess is that 99% of the HFU members use SDRs and stopped turning knobs years ago and thus likely not interested so can anyone point me in the direction of a good place to post what I am looking to sell?
Thanks

Six part series on Radio Aquarius from the early 70s.
Was a treat to watch.
This is when pirates were f*cking pirates!

Clandestine Stations / Help with B-21
« on: November 15, 2021, 2336 UTC »
Thanks everyone for their posts.
Two four letter words (life & work) have had me tied up pretty tight for the last long bit and I apologize for not putting together an A-21 this year.
That said, putting a B-21 together looks bleak - if someone would like to help out, I can send you a word doc of B-20 that can be used as a template - PM me if you can help.
Thanks again for the logs & for keeping the Clandestine forum active.
Good DX and stay well,
FPE

I don't recall the Memorial broadcast being on in 2020....but it did recently appear in at least 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.
Hopefully this year.  As early as 1440z and as late as 0420z - and as early as 11/9 and as late as 11/12.  On USB and AM - 5150khz - 6950khz (typically and recently 6875khz-6950khz).
Time will tell.
