nothing on Twente SDR at 0835

to The Ether Hacker :
this forum on HF-U is not limited to short waves, but it is an international forum, so the low power  medium wave station are welcomed if they can be heard beyond the borders, and preferably also talking to foreign listeners, but there is no clear rules.

My feeling is that the tips should be useful to all international listeners and DXers interested in pirate and hobby stations, so the stations heard only by direct waves are not quite welcomed.

About the length of transmissions, there is no rule, and you never know when the transmission will end, or if it will come back. But if you post about a transmission, you should at least try to do a mimimum 'after-sales service' if the transmission  disappears/ends after only a few minutes.

Presentlly my MW antenna is out of order, so I use the SDRs in NL and GB. Hope to do the repairs soon.

The shortwave spectrum or HF is from 3 Mhz (approx. 100m) upto 30 Mhz (approx. 10m).
Below 3Mhz is MF and above 30 Mhz is VHF
Antennas: Multi-band doublet for 80 to 10m HF and vertical groundplane
