Re: DXing in Public Places

That's not a bad idea, assuming those who approach you are genuinely curious, etc. But you are correct about having to give an explanation when conditions are good. I have known people ask me these things right at precisely the wrong moment - the top of the hour when the ID is approaching on an unid...

DXing in Public Places

Here's a topic which was discussed on the old Skywaves a good while ago and I thought I'd bring it up again as I still have the same apprehensions when it comes to DXing in public places - places off the beaten track of course. (Usually as far off the beaten track as possible). Yesterday's planned o...

Re: Skegness Log: 23-10-14

While updating my personal all-time log I just noticed something which really surprised me. In my four years of living on the east coast I have log Spanish stations on 36 individual frequencies via tropo. That was up to the 22nd. Then came this rather amazing spell of tropo, during which I added ano...

Re: Android app for smartphone friendly viewing of the forum

One other point. There is a major software update coming in a few days. At this point it would be unwise to make any further changes.

Re: Android app for smartphone friendly viewing of the forum

There is an app for Tapatalk so that's quite possible. But I have reservations when it comes to installing more mods and making any changes to the software. 1. I have very little experience with the coding which is required for a lot of these modifications. Most of these come with detailed instructi...
