If Disney were to create a punk rock band, it's be Green Day....



I heard it again last night, about the same time. I doubt it is the Windsor station, compared it to Detroit AM stations, and considerable difference in the signals. I am thinking it might be one of the canadian stations. Next weekend, I'm going to try to compare what I'm hearing over the air to what's on their webstream and see.

WEUP AM  (Huntsville. AL) may be a possibility.   It is supposed to broadcast on 1700 khz but it may have been off frequency that nite.   This station broadcasts "Urban Contemporary/Gospel" at 10 kw daytime but only 1 kw at nite.   1 kw ain't much punch power but you're only 160 miles TX/RX distance and it was late evening (your time) so its a possibility.

Just a thought.

I catch that station duking it out with a sports station from Iowa early in the morning.

MW Loggings / Russian Speaking Station Heard On 1610 Last Night

Hey, HFU-er's. Long time stalker, long lost poster who forgot his log-in and user name.
Last night after midnight, I caught a Russian speaking station on 1610 khz in the Great Lakes region. Station faded in and out. No clue on what it was.

The RF Workbench / Trying A Different Approach
« on: October 12, 2015, 0106 UTC »
Having very little luck with the ISO that I purchased. Giving up on it for right now. Maybe wait until the spring to try my luck with the f**king thing.
So now I'm thinking dipole, which I'm sure you are all going to tell me I should have done in the first place. Well, I have space issues, which is why I decided to try my luck with the ISO to begin with.
I do not have enough property for a 160m dipole antenna. So I'm thinking of a75/80m (1/4 wave length is the modus operandi, good people) with a manual tuner in line.  Is this kosher? If not, what is for someone with very very little electronic background (other than successfully making FM antennas with coat hangers)?



The RF Workbench / ISO AM Antennas
« on: July 06, 2015, 2211 UTC »
I purchased an ISO 200 antenna. I'm having a bitch of a time trying to get a good match (below 1:2.2) for my operating frequency. I was able to get it down to 1:1.9, but the moment I put it on my tower, it went over 1:4 just like that.
Anybody else try these, and if so did you also have problems with them being so temperamental with SWR?
