With deep, long, fades, but heard what sounded like Earth, Wind & Fire, then announcement of 'Signature Radio' followed by old-school Hip-Hop. 1st, heard on a truck stereo, but at home, DSL noise was in there with this. Still, good to hear some activity up there and not the usual NJ TIS pest of a station.

Never seen one, but looks like a neat 1960's luchbox radio.   https://radiojayallen.com/hitachi-th-812-am-portable-radio/    Huh... The only things that I have that are Hitachi are their early 1980's CrO2 Cassettes.

While we're at it, how about Radio Jay's review of the  Sony TFM-7300?    https://radiojayallen.com/sony-tfm-7300-super-sensitive-am-fm-portable/

Looks like another really neat portable.

That cold spell, once those T-storms moved out, was nice for the HF Low Bands, but this full week of High Pressure, and above average warm weather, could make for some neat Tropo Propagation for VHF / UHF, for the Eastern Part of the USA and Canada. https://vhf.dxview.org/    (You'll need to scroll-over to view North America.) So, could be Scanner's, TV, FM'ers, and VHF / UHF weak-signal deluxe. If anything, it's borrowed time to get those antenna projects done, before that snow flies. (That, includes me as well.) For a quick check of that, just tune through those NOAA Weather Radio 162MHz channels for those distant stations popping though. HAPPY DX'ing, on those higher bands!!!!

Well, I'd hate to be the one wanting to wait for a QSL from that one.

Sounds like it would be neat, but FREQ programming and memory storing via a card, doesn't make me want this.   https://swling.com/blog/2023/10/the-sony-icf-sw800-a-most-unusual-sony-radio/

https://www.dxworld-e.com/shop      Neat. Where did I hear about this place? Monitoring DX CB'ers on CH38LSB.

It's been suggested that I start saving useful pages from the Wayback Machine. Like, this one on Part 15 Q&A:    https://web.archive.org/web/20161113092438/http://www.geocities.ws/raiu_harrison/mwa/part15faq.html

Still, good INFO.

VID from ALPB:     https://mbcf.boards.net/thread/3104/radios       Hmmmmmmmm... Don't see why this also wouldn't work on the newer Radio Systems version. Does it take out the Phantom Phase MOD?

Huh... Woke-up this morning to this Radio Survivor airing on WTSQ-LP, https://www.radiosurvivor.com/2023/09/podcast-333-low-power-fm-for-dummies/ I heard about this coming out, but was neat to hear the authur being interviewed.

UPDATE, Friday, 10/6/2023: Apparently, since it's College Radio Day, Radio Survivor banged-out another one for that in RS #304 podcast,   https://www.radiosurvivor.com/2023/10/podcast-334-college-radios-hidden-early-history/      Enjoy!!!!!!

Well, finally some good news! Gotta' check that out. Thanks, for passing that along.

https://swling.com/blog/2023/09/martin-builds-a-simple-ferrite-rod-to-inductively-couple-radios-to-his-external-mediumwave-antenna/     This looks a lot more portable than that godzeye antenna that I've built a decade ago. And yes, SWL'ing rip.

Yep... My bad... That's what happens when I try to post when someone is trying to talk to me. (Uh...) Anyway, I bumped it where it should be. Sorry, and thanks.

Me??? I still write long-hand to old, extra, notebooks. One, for a dupe-sheet of pretty much general observations, in pencil , and a penned notebook of kept loggings. The only, somewhat, problem that I have always had with this is that my Spell Check doesn't seem to work in long-hand. Hmmmmmmmm...

Huh? / 2023 Grass Roots Radio Conference in Charleston, WV!
