Shortwave Broadcast / WINB? 9265 AM 1724 UTC 27 NOV 2021
« on: November 27, 2021, 1729 UTC »
Very weak, mostly just a carrier on the WF with occasional bits of audio.  Tried doing some searches to see if i could eyeball the antenna and, well....it's interesting if I'm looking at the right thing.  The FCC database wasn't much help....anyone know the story here?

EDIT:  that's the feedline...it goes to a rhombic in a nearby field

Was on a road trip in PA and (moderately) surprised to see WMLK’s antenna still standing….

Just purchased a small ultrasonic humidifier for my office since the desert-like humidity levels play havoc with my sinuses.  I was pleasantly surprised that the wall briquette and the device did not hash up my radios....at least the bits of HF, VHF, and UHF I'm currently monitoring. 

That is all!

Software / WSPR?
« on: June 03, 2021, 0230 UTC »
Has anyone messed around w/WSPR on their SDRs?  Thought it might be a useful tool for monitoring real world propagation at my QTH.

Would be neat if Multimode added it…(nudges Chris… :))

Think i could see the carrier last night, but i've got a lot of QRM around there so can't be sure.  Wasn't able to make out any audio.
