Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Riyadh(?) 9555 AM 2240 UTC 10 Aug 14

Music, what sounds like an interview of some sort (in Arabic).  S6-7, good copy with minor fading.  Very little stattic.

Buy a copy of VMware instead of more hardware.  You can sandbox it (except for the Ethernet input of the radio) and it will be a lot less trouble than a PC laptop.

Can make out the occasional word, but mostly unintelligible from Frederick County, MD.

S8-9 into Frederick County, MD.  Old time music interrupted by static crashes.

Some kind of chant or something in Arabic; bouncing around between +10 and +20.  Gotta love the grayline!    Only wish I could pull in NA pirates like this....

From 'receiving station obvious"....Blazing signal, often > +20.  I think I can hear it in my fillings.

There's always this:

Software / oh happy day (remote control of radio upstairs)

Nothing earthshattering, but now I can hide in my basement while listening to and controlling the radios hooked up to my *nix box upstairs.  VNC through SSH to have access to the controls, and streaming the audio back via icecast2 and darkice.  There is a lag but its manageable for now...i'll try tweaking some settings later.

NNSA should set up a website "NIF your stuff!" and sell the rights for the associated reality tv show to mtv.

On my car,I get much better range with the remote in the key if I use my skull as a resonant cavity :D

I know the feeling.  Was considering putting my pcr1000 up for sale because I hadn't used it in forever, but when I hooked it up to make sure it still worked I was very happy to discover not only did it still work but was much more fun to play with than the 7600gr.

Still scheming on my semi-permanent antenna installs, and am wondering what to do with my h-800.  In a former life I had just run the e-probes permanently attached rg-174/u coax inside w/out any grounding.  Since I'll be grounding my other antenna feeds (rg-6 from a discone and a sky loop) to the metal bulkhead box where they enter the house, I'm at a loss (ha!) with what to do about the h-800.  Looking at the schematic (https://www.lfengineering.com/files/pdf/H-800inst.pdf) I think I could do the same, but was hoping for some expert advice.  Even though the antenna is active, it looks to me like the coax shield is grounded anyway so grounding it where it passes through the bulkhead shouldn't matter.

Now back to ground rod pounding......
