Live audio feed with ICOM and longwire, didn't get through the whole band.
I was happy with Sallisaw, OK and Bobo, MS. Sure hope they're valid.
About 0600-0645z.

Thought I would try Chris's Amalgamated DGPS decoder
for Windows.
It worked good and was easy to set up. A few bugs that I
will make note of.

I was decoding live audio from my ICOM using my longwire
antenna then my folded dipole which is a lot quieter and
pulled in more signals. I need a proper antenna for LW.
Any suggestions for a low cost loop or other adequate
antenna for LW ?

I tuned the band 1 kHz at a time between 285 kHz and 325 kHz
from 0330z to about 0430z.
I was surprised at the stations I was able to pick up and ID.

What a blast! I'll be on LW tonight to.
Great job on this Chris.

Thanks for the heads up in "General Discussions" Terry, https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,31024.0.html
This was interesting.

Heard a few stations anyway on 472, 473, 475 and 476 kHz. My longwire does ok on these freq. but it's not that great.

Had a few ok decodes @ 0400z to 0420z with FLDigi. Weak signals and FLDigi had problems with spacing.

I like the first decode with the Seinfeld reference.

My neighbor has been a Ham operator for years.
He told me that his next door neighbors have recently
started complaining that his Ham Radio transmissions are
interfering with their Satellite TV and cordless phones.

He operates on 40 meters and always under 50 watts.
He uses a recently installed 1/2 wave dipole antenna,
made with good quality materials, coax ect., that is at
least 100' from any of their houses.
He knows what he is doing, he is a Air Force HF/VHF radio
communications tech. He insist his rig and antennas
are in good working order.

He says it's not likely that his station is causing interference
at such a low freqs. and power compared to the higher freqs. used by Sat. TV and landline phones.


I think he is probably right and his neighbors are probably
tired of seeing his antenna, which was the first complaint a while ago.

So, is this interference described possible?

Thanks
