Opera has picked up today, WA3USG (Pennsylvania) receiving me up at the moment.
New addition to the well over crowded bench. Been hearing on the 'Shortwave-Radio' Yahoo group about this guy on 14.3125 from Canada who spends hour at a time winding just about everyone up who cares to stick around on the frequency. To those not sure of the rigs under the printer, but are curious as to their id's. A Uniden UBC9000XLT is on top an Icom-718, which is only capable of receiving due to my blowing the finals way back in history Hi!
Up until now I have not been able to monitor the shortwaves whilst the computer sound card is tied up with Opera and the 897, as opposed to the PCR-1000. The Satellit is covering SSTV of course. Only way round it was to set up the DX-394, which I have done. As recording with computer is out too, I decided to add an extension shelf that allows me to use the digital recorder. This records the 394's audio to either disc, pen drive or SD card. The Heil phones being connected to the recorder.
Been listening for a couple of hours now and no sign of anyone on 14.3125 however. 15:23 Strong tuning up signal now, maybe some life appearing then Hi!.
