Missing 846  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 10 2017

IRCA
The NZ Radio DX League's Bryan Clark located ~100km north of Auckland
asks the same question?

He had been registering Kiribati's tx slightly offset to the low side of
846, along with someone exactly on 846.00 -- which he presumed to be
Newstalk ZB from Masterton/Waingawa down near Wellington.

His evening/NZ date 9 Dec or early hours of UT/9 Dec, only the exact
846.00 was showing, leading him to surmise Kiribati was not on air.

changed enough to account for that, so was it perhaps off the air?ÂÂ
I'm curious if anyone heard them on last night.

First Thoughts on the Skywave SSB Portable  View Printable Version 
Saturday, December 09 2017

IRCA
I received my *Skywave SSB* yesterday... it's a nice unit! The packaging
and accessories make a good impression too. I like it better than the
original Skywave for sure.

On weak daytime signals its almost as good as the 909X and Satellit Exec
but falls behind on the weakest of the MW signals... that's expected due to
the bigger ferrite in the bigger radios.

However the SSB modes in the new Skywave are a really good addition for
tight signal situations! For instance, there's a fairly low power (4.5 kw)
Milwaukie, Oregon station just 10 kHz up from powerhouse KOMO 1000, and the
Skywave can hear it when using USB...indoors and in the daytime. Not only
that, using LSB I can easily hear a 5 kw Dalles, Oregon outlet on 1440,
just 10 kHz away from my strongest local KSUH 1450 (1 Kw omni-directional,
Korean lang., 1.4 miles away). I'm *very* impressed with what this little
handful has accomplished in the short time I've had the radio.

This radio should do well at the coast with receiving some TPs and DUs when
using LSB/USB, especially with a coupled loop.

FM is of course superb on the Skywave SSB, just like on similar
SiLabs-chipped receivers. The weather channels are good to have too, and I
read in the manual that the radio can even be set to receive weather ALERT
broadcasts such as when severe thunderstorms or tornadoes are approaching.

The radio's build quality is just fine for the price. I like the new gray
color, and I don't mind the "Speak & Spell" toy speaker shape once I saw
the radio in person (I admit it--I'm a designer and the looks of a radio
are more important to me than to many DXers). The Skywave SSB's build
quality is pretty good too.

The radio seems sensitive enough (MW & HF) and I haven't noticed any
abnormal amount of digital noises. Like many radio hobbyists, my own home
has enough buzzes and hash to cover up any weaker circuit oddities.

Speaking of oddies, I've never encountered a radio that ramps up in volume
over 1-2 seconds when you turn it on... has anyone else?

I'll be interested in my cross-town pal Gary DeBock's opinion of the the
Skywave SSB after he's taken his for a test drive.

774 Japan had decent audio for awhile; not much else. Everything shut
down after about 1430 utc. Sunrise 1414 utc.

594 Japan 1403 utc very poor male talk

774 Japan 1402 utc very poor/poor male talk; 1427-30 utc poor (AM sync
detector). No EE lessons today.

972 S Korea 1405 utc very poor talk

1566 S Korea HLAZ 1423 utc very poor talk

I would just want to record with my old cassette deck Russ. I may take the radio into a shop in Portland to have it done. I do see a mini jax on the back that has audio in for an MP3 player. That jax should be able to be used. I do not need audio in anyway.
