FM DX NW PA Thu Dec 7th  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 08 2017

HCDX
Only 4 things of note in my FM DX'ing from Thursday December 7th. And they
weren't even that "special". Sangean HDT1, 5 element log periodic antenna
at 2000 feet in elevation.

I had 93.7 The Fan KDKA Pittsburgh, PA making it through the B94, WKBI 93.9
slop (the tower is 1 mile away from me).

Here's some audio:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iNeuI0PbogKO-queOtODmDMo3BBKsb3k/view?usp=sharing

Instead of "Jewel 92" CKPC, I had W221BD 92.1 Dubois, PA. 27 watts at 86
feet, 25 miles to my South. A relay of WPSU 91.5 State College, PA. A match
to WPSX 90.1 Kane, PA as well. No RDS showing. The signal is noisy and weak
but good enough to hear the programming.

Audio here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dWvbRTllXqPRUHPBXAnUkKvqqzdHEB7D/view?usp=sharing

Booster WDDH-FM1 with 250 watts used to be on the same tower as 92.1. One
time when the main transmitter for WDDH-FM near Kane had gone off the air,
I could hear the booster with just a table top radio and whip antenna.

Here's Hot 92, WJHT 92.1 Johnstown, PA. About 65 miles away with DJ mention
and community interview.

Audio here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/12eRD0CasVhVKTKF0tj1KfSQTqNqhZMgS/view?usp=sharing

Here's a pretty good signal from "Mixmas 97.1", WREO Ashtabula, OH with a
Christmas tune and some DJ chatter.

TV tuner for PC?  View Printable Version 
Thursday, December 07 2017

HCDX
And the VHF low band old channels 2 thru 6 in usa has largely been given over to wireless services. The few digital stations assigned are low power ones. Low band analog still exists to a limited degree in Canada and is still used in Cuba and Latin America outside now all digital Mexico. To make a long story short you can still get tropo on VHF high band and UHF but the E skip happy hunting ground low band VHF has many fewer stations to chase.

Things have changed. You need a TV tuner device that can receive HD TV
signals. There is no more analog TV over the airwaves in Canada or the US.

I can't suggest what device(s) you could buy as I haven't looked in to this.
I still have an old analog tuner card to record programs from video tapes.

TV tuner for PC?  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, December 06 2017

Iâve never done tv DXing before but with my height advantage here, I want
to try it.

I have no idea whatâs good and whatâs not, but I know thereâs crap out
there and you get what you pay for.

I have a Win XP laptop Iâm not using I can Dedicate to this.

Iâd like to stick to something I can buy on Amazon, and keep it under $ 150
if possible.

Can someone offer some suggestions?

And if I need some capture software, can someone recommend sone that will
record off the tuner? Iâm willing to, again, spend a decent amount of money
for this.... maybe $ 50? Just basic recording and maybe basic editing.

Remember, totally new and clueless to this.
