Live DX spotter / chat system *show of hands*  View Printable Version 
Monday, March 11 2019

IRCA
Colin,

I donât SWL much anymore, but would love something like this for MW DXing (and FMâthough options already exist for that part of the spectrum)

Domestic openings too. Lately, the DX Tips and e-mail lists have been more active in this regard, putting some new ones in my log.

73,

Last week someone posted a "wouldn't it be great if we had a
live DX spotter chat window web site 100% dedicated to SWBCing
and/or MW DXing ?"

You know, a place where you could quickly sign in and post an alert that
you're hearing HCJB on 9560 khz or Voice of the Voyager on 6160 khz...
or there is a great TA opening to the West Coast...

Show of hands: Who would use a system like this?

I have some free server space and some ideas about domain names that could
be fun...

Anyway... hands!?

XHDATA D-808  View Printable Version 
Monday, March 11 2019

IRCA
Glad you like the XHDATA D-808 Mike. I recently brought one on vacation to
Dunedin FL and I logged about 225 stations in 5 weeks. The farthest was
CFAC 960, in Calgary Alberta. I find the sound at 3 khz AM mode is
excellent for DXing. Jim, back home in the snow
