Been there a few times myself. But, check out the VID's that Jeri did of this neat facility,    https://www.mrtwv.org/virtual-tour/   Another site for the museum is here,    https://www.radiomuseum.org/museum/usa/museum-of-radio-and-technology-huntington-wv/.html   

More AM fun???     https://antiquewireless.org/homepage/am-qso-party-details/
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, OK... I'm game.

https://public.nrao.edu/news/successful-test-new-planetary-radar/    Seen this on the SWL'ing Post. Ever been there for a tour? It's well worth it! Especially, if you can get a scientist to lead the tour. (Hint-hint..) Don't request the interns to do it.

Radio transmitter engineers wanted

WBCQ Radio is seeking radio transmitter engineers to work at our 500KW shortwave station. Come to northern Maine and get away from it all. Nice working environment, good pay, great people, fun work with BIG transmitting and antenna equipment. Contact Allan and Angela Weiner at 207-538-9180. Please send resumes to wbcq@wbcq.com.

Damn!!!! Talk about a dream-job! 20-some years ago, I would've thought about hopping on that like flies on doggie-doo-doo. Sucks getting old, since one of the reasons for leaving WNY was the winters from hell. Still, could be a dream-job for someone.

Coming up this Stupid-bowl Weekend,    http://www.arrl.org/news/2021-am-rally-set-for-first-weekend-in-february    and    http://www.amrally.com/         Hmmmmmmm, wonder if I'll get QSL requests from SWL'ers this year? I did two years ago.

Huh? / Why There’s More Music on AM Now?
« on: January 29, 2021, 2009 UTC »
I've notice that too, there seems to be more AM stations with tunage, again. Radio Survivor has noticed that too,    http://www.radiosurvivor.com/2021/01/18/why-theres-more-music-on-am-now/

That, and Boomer found an updated AM Stereo Map on facebook,    https://www.facebook.com/groups/iloveamradio/
Neat radio dump site, but I didn't see the map. Maybe, y'all can play 'Where's Waldo' and try to spot that?       

For you AM TX'ing fans out there, Boomer FWR this to me. A neat read, for sure,     https://www.radioworld.com/tech-and-gear/tech-tips/quick-we-need-a-temporary-am-antenna

Amateur Radio / ARRL VHF Contest on, now!
« on: January 16, 2021, 1954 UTC »
This snuck up on me,  https://contests.arrl.org/janvhf/    I might try Sunday to work that. The contest that I'm waiting for is the AM Rally,   http://www.amrally.com/    I'm a lil' better prepared for that one, finally.

Interesting. Listening to a caller to the American Journal, with Harrison Smith, this morning, a caller whom was on MURS CH3, (151.940MHz FM.), during the 1/6/2021 D.C. Rally, heard someone key-up and shout, "Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling!!! We're in the Capital BLDG!". Then, all that meyham started. Hmmmm...

Huh? / Nice LPAM Dutch site translated by Boomer!
« on: January 09, 2021, 1821 UTC »
Lots of good AM info here,     http://boomerthedog.net/morningstar-low-power.htm

I'm not talkin' about the official AM Rally that 1st weekend in February, but that informal rally they call the Heavy Metal Rally. It might be this weekend. Guess I'll burn the dust off of those 811A's.    http://www.amrally.com/

Huh? / Is It Time for Radio to Restore Dynamic Range?
« on: January 05, 2021, 1920 UTC »
Well, if they are going to even attempt a better DR, dump the MP3 format! That would be one improvement.    https://www.radioworld.com/columns-and-views/guest-commentaries/is-it-time-for-radio-to-restore-dynamic-range

Amateur Radio / 630M activity? Sounds like it.
« on: January 02, 2021, 0011 UTC »
At 23:30UTC, hearing what sounds like a very slow like FT-8, FT-4, activity on 475.500kHz. About an S3 carrier level my way. Can anyone else hear, decode, and ID that? If I'm not mistaken, 630M in the USA is limited to 5W PEP, so interesting to hear where that QRP is coming from.
