Hi there again everyone!
This is where all my logs and audio files have ended up.The short-wave hobby was beset by a few obstacles here at the old homestead for awhile,but now the dx'ing situation has been vastly improved.
The audio files at the bottom of the page are a new twist for me :) I originally was using the other computer's Windows 98 Sound-Recorder program and then converting that huge 5 megabyte audio file into MP3
but then I found out it only can do about 60 seconds of audio and sometimes that just doesn't do it for me.Especially if I have to wait for a interval signal or ID,it kind of cramps my style but it does work to some extent.
Now for the logs :)
Please note for clarification purposes the logs are in a format as follows:
Frequency,time heard(in GMT\UTC),date,station name,country of origin,signal report with radio\antenna used and finally a brief description of what was heard.
The logs below on the second spinning diskette are from when I was running WIn95/98 on the other pc.These logs date back to 1999 so may be some interesting things in there to be seen .
So here is my attempt at a logging update as it is . I found out the gnumeric program can save databases in html format so that just made it a lot easier for everyone on the internet.
Also of interest is a catch of Radio Rebelde's AM outlet in Cuba on 1180.That was heard on the RX 320 using the 23 ft vertical fed straight through to the radio.This is my first offshore MW catch ever .So I was pretty thrilled by it.
Here are my pre 2003 logs.
Like this site? Want to come back next week to see what has been tuned in on my old radios?
