Software / Kenwood TS-2000 EQ, various software and settings.
« on: February 23, 2021, 2055 UTC »
Uh... The settings are in HEX? I haven't had to deal with that, since the late 1990's, when I had to deal with Toshiba CRT Test Machine Industrial Settings. But, for those of y'all being software tech savvy, and want the ultimate TS-2000 EQ controlling for both RX and TX, here you are,  http://dl7cg.wunstorf-luthe.de/ts2000eq/ 

Huh? / Format changes to stations in 2021? Here's a few.

The RF Workbench / Re-CAP'ing the GE Super Radio II. Rip from SWLing
« on: February 21, 2021, 1932 UTC »
I've always like the GE Super Radios. I have the III, but the versions I and II, just seem better quality, than the III. https://swling.com/blog/2021/02/chucks-re-capped-ge-superadio-ii-might-set-a-new-am-bcl-benchmark/

Neat!!!! Using a Yaesu FT-70DR HT as my D/A C4FM scanner, ISS came in about S9 with answers from one of the female astronauts. Answers on riding the SpaceX Dragon, as compared to Soyus, weightlessness, and trying to enjoy the time during the work sched. Heard her for about 10min. At least, I believe that it was 145.550MHz, and not 145.800MHz. I have the alphanumerics on that HT. (I do, and don't like that feature.) I didn't catch what school this was for. Still, neat catch.

MW Loggings / 1560AM WKDO, The Buck
« on: February 19, 2021, 0705 UTC »
The AM side of 98.7FM The Buck seems to walk in to WV tonight. I even e-mailed them to tell them that they now dominate the FREQ after dark,   https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WKDO&service=AM&h=D   and    https://chasinthebuck.com/    Huh??? Listed 'Daytime only' under Radio Locator? Guess not.

Huh? / 1560AM going bye-bye in NYC? Here's why.
« on: February 12, 2021, 2342 UTC »
I've heard why from a dude whom lives up that way. Clark, N1BCG, on a 3873AM QSO, told me that the station was offered $51M for, not the station and tower array, but for the +5 acre property alone! Whoa!!!! Somebody wants that space. O.F.W., at this point, is anyone going to miss it? Hey!!!! Maybe, another opening for Part #15 AM'ers.

Been there a few times myself. But, check out the VID's that Jeri did of this neat facility,    https://www.mrtwv.org/virtual-tour/   Another site for the museum is here,    https://www.radiomuseum.org/museum/usa/museum-of-radio-and-technology-huntington-wv/.html   

More AM fun???     https://antiquewireless.org/homepage/am-qso-party-details/
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, OK... I'm game.

https://public.nrao.edu/news/successful-test-new-planetary-radar/    Seen this on the SWL'ing Post. Ever been there for a tour? It's well worth it! Especially, if you can get a scientist to lead the tour. (Hint-hint..) Don't request the interns to do it.   

Huh? / WBCQ: Radio transmitter engineers wanted?

Radio transmitter engineers wanted

WBCQ Radio is seeking radio transmitter engineers to work at our 500KW shortwave station. Come to northern Maine and get away from it all. Nice working environment, good pay, great people, fun work with BIG transmitting and antenna equipment. Contact Allan and Angela Weiner at 207-538-9180. Please send resumes to wbcq@wbcq.com.

Damn!!!! Talk about a dream-job! 20-some years ago, I would've thought about hopping on that like flies on doggie-doo-doo. Sucks getting old, since one of the reasons for leaving WNY was the winters from hell. Still, could be a dream-job for someone.

Amateur Radio / AM Rally 2021? Here we go! This Superbowl Weekend.
« on: January 31, 2021, 2219 UTC »
Coming up this Stupid-bowl Weekend,    http://www.arrl.org/news/2021-am-rally-set-for-first-weekend-in-february    and    http://www.amrally.com/         Hmmmmmmm, wonder if I'll get QSL requests from SWL'ers this year? I did two years ago.

Huh? / Why There’s More Music on AM Now?
« on: January 29, 2021, 2009 UTC »
I've notice that too, there seems to be more AM stations with tunage, again. Radio Survivor has noticed that too,    http://www.radiosurvivor.com/2021/01/18/why-theres-more-music-on-am-now/

That, and Boomer found an updated AM Stereo Map on facebook,    https://www.facebook.com/groups/iloveamradio/
Neat radio dump site, but I didn't see the map. Maybe, y'all can play 'Where's Waldo' and try to spot that?
