Ron - thanks as always for your logs.

I have no experience with SDRs (they call me a "knob turner" - oh well), but I must agree about the R8.  I bought mine around 1998 and it WAY outperforms my Ten-Tec RX340, Watkins Johnson HF-1000, and the JRCNRD545.  And that's on SW, MW, LW, WeFax, etc.  My R8 is always my go-to radio.  I had to send it to a guy a few years ago to get something fixed (a capacitor I think) and he re-calibrated it and it is like new.  Too bad they don't make them anymore.  Its all SDRs nowadays - but then again, I griped when cassettes took out 8-Tracks.
Have fun,

Thanks for your logs, Ron.

I have had no time to decode WEFAX lately. Hopefully, over the weekend I can. Hope others have been doing well with it since my original post.

I will get back at it around late October - conditions improve & Australia & New Zealand become easy catches here local mornings and the northernmost Canadians are decent late afternoons.
Have fun

Huh? / Re: Yeah, 9/11, but remember the night of 9/10/2001 in radio?

I use a DSP device (JPS NIR-12) and it absolutely helps.  Keep in mind I'm not using an app for WEFAX but rather an old school Universal M-8000 and I receive on a 30 year old Drake R8. The DSP I use is made by RF Systems I think.....

Not sure of your location but I'm near Chicago and easily copy New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii, Kodiak, Boston, CA, LA, Chile, and in the winter months the Canadian far north TXs come in well.
Have fun.

Here's a link to a PDF - somewhat out dated but still useful:

The carrier frequency is always 1.9kHz below the assigned frequency.
And if you mean NMF when you say "boston station", I think you were tuned to 12748kHz (not 14748) - see page 34 on the linked PDF.
Have fun,

Reception Into NE Ohio:

SIO 222  SINPO 25232    S4

2340 UTC Ohio by Crosby Stills Nash and Young

2344 Music...male voice    Static just covering you up, can hear tune, cannot interpret words

Thanks for the remembrance!!

Not sure if this was a true "remembrance".  The only station I know of that has broadcasted  memorial/remembrance show for the Kent State Shootings is Rave On Radio.  If there was no mention of "a studio in the woods" or multiple IDs then it wasn't them.
Nice to hear Neil doing the song he wrote just days after the tragic event - CSN were lucky to be around at that point - it was close to the end for them.

Thanks, Ron.  You're the king of all west coast clandestine loggers.
Your logs are much appreciated.

Nice catch.
