Recorder catch:

6925 USB

Fair to weak signal

0735 The Dildo Song by Brooks & Anderson
0736 OM voice/recording - couldn't make out what was being said, but at the end had a loop repeating something 9x then off.

Was listening to the show in the pool last night using a Tecsun S-8800 and MMD-40 antenna on the ground with great reception (even w/the lighting strikes in the distance).  Also was recording it on the TT as well.



Thanks WR!

Equipment / Re: Advice on Tecsun vs Sony

I have both the 660 & 880 (8820 firmware), purchased within the last 6 months.  At first I got the 660 due to the mixed reviews on the 880, but it's hidden menu features with the latest firmware would correct some of the issues from earlier releases.  Being able to turn off the dynamic noise reduction & muting threshold combined with it's better audio and filter choices makes it my favorite of the two.  The 660 may have the advantage in sensitivity on sw, but the ability to tweak the 880's dsp options made the difference for me.  One more thing; I'm not really an AM dxing guy, but my 880 does run circles around the 660 in that area.

Audacity (free recording software) works well & if you kick it off at 00:00 utc then it makes it easy to mark the time if there's any overnight activity.
