General Radio Discussion / SWL audio clip cleanup
« on: October 17, 2023, 1236 UTC »
Recently I have been listening to old shortwave audio clips found on https://shortwavearchive.com/ and also youtube.  Not surprisingly, the audio quality varies greatly.  I found a nice 40 minute RBI broadcast the other week on youtube, but a good portion of it was all but unlistenable due to adjacent channel interference in the recording.  Computer software to the rescue!  I was able to notch out the offending noise using the notch filter option in the Audacity software.  https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/notch_filter.html
Pretty easy to do actually and was done in about 10 minutes.  This might be old hat for some of you, but I figured it may be useful information for others.

Utility / HFGCS General Log
« on: January 24, 2023, 1822 UTC »
Thought it might be useful to have a HFGCS log thread similar to the EAM/FDM one, but for generic traffic on the net. 

At some point during the day on 11175,
AFKAI01 calling for radio check
SLEDGE61 calling for radio check
SLEDGE63 calling for radio check

1815z 11175 kHz  MAINSAIL and RAYMOND21 conducting a radio check.  RAYMOND21 is the Offutt command post.  Interesting if they have HF capability now or are going through the global system.  They have stated in the past that they had no HF capability.
