USA KVOH 17774.995 kHz July 3 at 14.50 UT  View Printable Version 
Friday, July 03 2020

USA 17774.995 kHz KVOH noted on remote net in NJ US state and Edmonton
Alberta-CAN at 14.50 UT on July 3, S=6-7 or -85dBm.

Programm language is Spanish today.

[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz]
(wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews July 3)

USA 17775-, Sat May 30 at 1507 UT, still no signal from KVOH,so its only
airing of 'Wavescan' is missed again. I wonder what the problem be now,
same as before disabling it for a biweek until a biday revival,
or something new?

Or is there absolutely no propagation this early? Recheck at 1825 UT, now
it's on at S9-S6 but undermodulated. There is lots of sporadic E across
the eastern half of USA, very little across the western.

17775-, July 1 at 1442 UT at first no signal from KVOH but then a JBA
carrier; 1904 UT recheck, definitely on to S=9+20dB but undermodulated,
and in English! not Spanish, about God and COVID-19. May I suggest that
the Omnipotent one could eliminate it, poof! if enough believers beg
It to.

17775-, July 2 at 2000 UT, KVOH is on today but JBA with English and
Spanish IDs.

L'Australia... in un palmo di mano! Il radioascolto da 23 dollari....  View Printable Version 
Thursday, July 02 2020

Questa mattina mi è arrivato l'Eton Elite Mini, un ricevitorino sorprendende per soli 23 dollari (acquistato su Amazon.com).
Con l'antenna a stilo cortissima del ricevitore non ci fai molto, specie in casa, specie in mezzo ai palazzi. Ma collegando il polo caldo della MLA-30+ ad un filo accoppiato in modo lasco all'antenna della radio (vedi foto) ho ascoltato anche Reach Beyond Australia!!!
Non è sensibilissimo e quindi sopporta abbastanza bene anche il sovraccarico (se ci colleghi direttamente il polo caldo della MLA-30+ all'antenna va in crisi solo su segnali fortissimi, tipo Radio Romania Int.). Per questo motivo ho costruito al volo una spolettina di accoppiamento tra l'uscita della MLA e lo stilo telescopico, con risultati davvero soddisfacenti!
Il DSP è un po' lento a trovare la migliore elaborazione del segnale; magari all'inizio è un po' distorto con AGC brusca, dopo una trentina di secondi migliora di molto.
La scansione è molto veloce, fin troppo, si ferma solo sulle stazioni più potenti, meglio sintonizzare passo passo con la rotellina.
Sul manuale mancano delle informazioni: premendo il tasto 9/10kHz ad rx spento si seleziona lo step per le onde medie; inoltre premendo il tasto Time a rx acceso si può commutare da una banda all'altra (per esempio dai 31 ai 25 metri ecc.)
La selettività è sufficiente (un po' come i primi portatili Sony e Panasonic)
Non mi piace la custodia in pelle rigida, preferisco il sacchettino del mio vecchio Degen DE1102 (di cui devo sistemare il finale audio, volume bassissimo e distorto) o quello della mia mitica fotocamera Lomo LC-A.
Ora lo voglio "spremere" ancora di più cercando di ascoltare le low-power europee (Shortwaveservice, ecc), vi terrò aggiornati.
Ma ora passo agli ascolti con questo miniportatile! Tutti di oggi 2 Luglio 2020:
1248UTC 15450kHz Voice of Turkey in EE 45444 (*)

1825UTC 6070kHz Just Right via Ch. 292, 35443
1948UTC 9920kHz Radio Thailand in EE, 55444
(*) ascolti effettuati vicino al router del PC acceso... quando l'ho spento il noise è diminuito notevolmente
Niente male... domani lo provo all'esterno (l'ho acquistato proprio per questo), e magari stanotte sulle onde medie. Le FM non mi interessano
A presto!
