Re: Consumer-ready Titus II SDR Receiver

I hadn't realized what price bracket this was going to be in when I commented before and compared it to my Reuter electronic pocket rx. at this price it's a must But I will wait until someone actually has one in their hands before I commit, it seems to be taking a while to materialize, they will nee...

1440 kHz 0230-0404

Automated oldies overnight, rubettes, bee gees and a lot of songs I don't recognize. The only European left on 1440 is Trieste but they're supposed to be dance/techno Px sounds like a UK gold station or hospital radio station Any ideas? It's still Wierd being able to Dx on 1440 So many clear channel...

Re: The Titus II Portable SDR update

Seems "influenced" by my rdr pocket
I've had it since spring but this year has been so awful I haven't really put it through its paces, at this rate it will be next spring before I can say anything meaningful about its performance

Luxembourg effect - the ultimate example

Currently allouis 162khz is radiating a huge blank carrier Presumably the data signals it carries are still needed Listen to the frequency and you will hear a veritable tower of babel! A myriad of different languages all muffled, depending on your location what you hear will vary While some people a...

Re: MW Offsets Records

Thanks for the link Is there a more up to date mw offsets list? They used to update it but its 3 years old Have you looked at the article on measuring mpx offsets on fm?

Omg I'm dxing mw from home again!

Korea time pips 972 @1900utc

Thanks to John for the tip, I've done it, despite the hideous noise levels here. Previous attempts with the elad failed but the rdr54d1's extra gain and superior noise rejection did the trick So far its time pips only but it's a good start Channel is dominated by club Asia and rne 1 Aerial is random...
