Yeah, no doubt, it would be a hefty vertical. The choice of 920 is definitely and interesting one. Moving up towards 1710 opens up potential DX reception, but this would come with a lot more risk. I'm assuming that 920 is a pretty clear frequency in your area. If so, it's a good option for staying below the radar.

Equipment / SSTran AMT5000 mediumwave transmitter
« on: July 30, 2012, 1409 UTC »
I was browsing around and found that SSTRAN is now selling a new transmitter, called the AMT5000:

Years ago I built one of the AMT3000 kits and it was fun and easy to put together. Works amazingly well for around the house and neighborhood broadcasting. The AMT5000 looks like a nice step up. The owner of SSTRAN is really responsive.

Has anyone built one of these yet? Looks like it would be a fun winter project.

It's possible he's using a vertical, which would not require any significant real estate.

Read this to get an idea: http://www.sstran.com/pages/sstran_buildant.html

Another ID at 0222z with a mention of a parallel operation on 97.7 FM.

1145
"DJ Sennheiser" with another ID at 0218z and then into a request for Maroon 5. Almost sounds live. Mention of tweaking the modulation.

1146
Radio Whatever ID at 0214z with an email address of hho531@yahoo.com

Loud here in the Boston burbs. S9+10 but there is some QRM from a variety of sources... I even hear CW near here. Electronic music.

Tested this out and it actually works fantastic, just as good as a real IRC client. Nice stuff. Thanks for adding a new feature to HFU!

Still going strong at 1951z at S9, peaks to S9+10. Electronic dub step style stuff. Sounds like a weekend late night on Radio 1. No IDs at all.

aurora, I still have it at 1831z. I switched over from the TS-590 to the IC-7410 because the noise blanker is better on the 7410. The signal peaks at S9 on the 7410. Hoping for an ID.

Peaking at S8 with periodic but brief fades to maybe S5. Overall quite good. Nice audio too. A very mellow ambient-electro tune at 1820z. I like this.

1153
Now off again at 2358z.

1154
Off, then back on, at 2353z.

1155
Captain Morgan (presumed) on 6925 KHz AM from 2338z onward with a mashup of Stones and other bands, plus the Twilight Zone theme. Sounds like the same show as a week or so ago. Very nice S9+10 signal.
