11 meter DX Logs 7 January 2015 1900 UTC +
« on: January 07, 2016, 2050 UTC »
11 meters is waking up this afternoon.  Received with a Galaxy DX 959 (modified 26515-27855), Ranger Voyage VR 9000 (modified 25615-28305) and a dipole antenna tuned for the lower part of 26 MHz.  The VR 9000 has wider frequency range and FM but a noisier and less selective receiver compared to the Galaxy, which actually has excellent receive and AM audio quality. The Galaxy has had several modifications to the receive section done to improve SNR. I actually prefer using the channelized "export" equipment that's designed for use on this band compared to a "real" HF amateur radio or SWL setup.
