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.

Amateur Radio / AM Rally 2021? Here we go! This Superbowl Weekend.

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.

Amateur Radio / 6M / 10M rocked last night on East Coast!
« on: December 29, 2020, 1823 UTC »
Heard Ft. Lauderdale on 10M, 28.400MHz around 7:30PM. Then, I had to go to work. However, on a COVID-19 Repeater Net, Net Control wanted to wrap-it-up to work GA and FL on 6M, just after 9PM EST. (Yeah figures... I always miss the good stuff.) So, Winter "E" season is here!

Just before work, I heard CB CH6 rockin', then LSB CH38, where I heard a dude from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Then, very weak, but heard Ft. Lauderdale again on 10M, 28.400MHz. Then, I had to go to. However, on a COVID-19 Repeater Net, Net Control wanted to wrap-it-up to work GA and FL on 6M, just after 9PM EST. (Figures... I always miss the good stuff.) 

MW Loggings / KCJJ1630, Iowa City.
« on: December 28, 2020, 1803 UTC »
What was suppose to be an early IN / OUT at work on a Sunday evening turned out to be the wait from hell. So, scanned the AM band in the truck. KCJJ 1630kHz was mainly the clear signal winner with tunage. Wow!!!! They don't voice track, but are live, to 9PM CST? Huh... Stations around here in WV usually all voice track it from 5PM, onward. So, neat to listen to, and gave me the heads-up on the big storm that's suppose to dump on Iowa City there this week, might dump later on us. Oh... And, CBS News at 10min before the TOHID? That's a lil' different. Nothin', on 1710kHz.      www.1630kcjj.com

Huh? / ARN #2252 headlines with radio pirates and landlords.
« on: December 25, 2020, 1814 UTC »
Huh... Not only was I surprised with Amateur Radio Newsline putting out a show on Christmas Day, but the headlinds with radio pirates and landlords and FCC involved,     https://www.arnewsline.org/news/2020/12/24/amateur-radio-newsline-report-2252-for-friday-december-25-2020
