I just did a Google search for Ray Moore, Key West and came up with a
Sharon Moore who died in 2015, naming her husband Billy as a survivor,
predeceased by father Ray Moore Sr and Mae Shaw. Same guy? Jim Renfrew

SDRplay Duo reception  View Printable Version 
Friday, January 18 2019

IRCA
Unfortunately both Chuck Hutton and Guy Atkins posted earlier on this
list (beginning of September) that the Duo's performance was
underwhelming, Chris, so it seems that your experience is not unique.

best wishes,

Nick

Having been a DXer and Ham for many years, I am enjoying getting
back in the hobby and seeing familiar names.
Although the Duo is at the lower end of the SDR price point scale,
hearing some positives I thought it would be a good place to start.
After running extensive simultaneous reception tests on MW I have
been underwhelmed by its performance. With some carriers barely
above the noise floor and not a peep of audio, I hear clear audio,
often on multiple station on the Icom 7300.
I have made no adjustments to the default ExtIo settings and was
wondering what other users have found and what settings changes, if
any, improved reception.

Better conditions this evening than past couple nights plus much lower

poor/weak (sync AM); 183 poor (sync AM); 189 traces; 198 poor; 216 very
poor/poor; 252 medium (sync AM). 1089 was closest to audio among several

Alberta TPs for 17 January 2019  View Printable Version 
Friday, January 18 2019

IRCA
ÂÂÂÂÂ After yesterday's step up it was back down this morning.ÂÂÂÂ In
fact no Asian audio at all made it to the southern Alberta prairie, with
a couple of DUs making up today's short list:

774ÂÂÂ ÂÂ 3LOÂÂÂ Melbourne, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ ABC news fanfare at 1500.

1116ÂÂÂ 4BCÂÂÂ Brisbane, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂÂ News by woman at 1502


Like yesterday evening, also had one TA with audio tonight.ÂÂ The UK
stations generally had the strongest carriers during the evening, but
the only station reaching audio was Egypt on 864, at around 0340.
