Ok, this has to be one of the oddest explanations I’ve ever read for
requesting an Special Temporary Authority


KXTD-AM 1530 Wagoner, OK is requesting permission to operate at lower than
it’s licensed 5000 watts and to do it Non directional after a trampoline
flying through the air during a tornado toppled one of their towers

 

Cruise ship dxing  View Printable Version

Right you are, Colin! I've done many cruises, and always bring along a
radio, including SDRs at times. If you have a balcony, great. Trying to
DX from within is a wasted exercise, mostly. Too much noise within the
ship. One can try to tape a magnetic loop on a window, but it's a poor
second choice to being outside, where you can DX with the whip (or a random
wire, or magnetic loop outside). I've never had any issues with crew, but
I have heard of others being ordered to remove any wires. No issue on HAL,
my usual cruise line. Another good spot is at the aft end of the ship
where there's usually lots of open space, and little noise. I DX'd there
crossing the Pacific a few years ago, with excellent results....just about
froze my **s off, though, trying to do the same in Greenland this past
summer! SDRs are a good option. I brought an Elad FDM S2 with me on our
last across Pacific cruise. It was great to record the entire band, and to
then also do some FM DXing (along with RDS) in exotic locales like
Vanuatu. There's a start. Oh, never, ever, had any questions from the
airlines or security about modified portables. All good there. 73,
Walt
