Review of the Airspy R2 SDR Radio For FM Station DX'ing.
« on: October 30, 2018, 0252 UTC »
I've signed up with that FM Tuners Yahoo Groups years ago, and most of the time they bitch about MOD's and repairs, but once in a while someone there posts links to something decent, like this review,   https://fmradiodx.wordpress.com/2017/08/06/review-of-the-airspy-r2-sdr-radio/   I could see this being neat, not only for FM stations DX'ing, but a tool to use at an FM station to aid in monitoring.   
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
