Short answer is no - never on SW, but when I lived in Joburg there
was a classic FM station that played lovely music like that.

I'm a newsaholic and listen mostly to talk shows and news programs.

I guess that tune reminded you of your Irish girlfriend.
Enjoy the music

I am a newsaholic too.That is why I listen to real news on the Paul
Gallo radio talk show and the JT and Dave radio talk show on
www.supertalkms.com and also www.WJNT.com

Chances are, some of those ''maries'' weren't their real names,,,
chances are, they were only Ladies in waiting.

Darn it, John, now I have to consider getting a DX 1 Pro Mk II. I've
read up on the DX 1 and grounding seems to be a critical issue with
getting your $$$ from the unit. If I may ask, what sort of ground system
are you using with it and was it a big deal to get a good ground.

Thank you!

John Barnard-


Hi JB - the grounding is necessary to help suppress local RFI and
ensure a good radio ground for top performance. Mine is just a copper
strap about 8 ft long buried under nine inches of soil = nothing
elaborate.

Considering my poor QTH the DX1 has been a top performer over the
years.

Thanks very much, John! This gives me a glimmer of hope as it sounds
like we live in similar climates (semi-arid, in my case) though I am
quite aways farther from a coastline.

All the best!

John Barnard

RFI and noise suppression. I didn't notice that the ALA was quieter
noisewise than my DX1, nor does it suppress the harsh RFI I have here.
I read your installation comments on the DX-1 where you indicated the
use of RG-213 and was wondering if LMR-400 with its superior shielding
would be worth a try in your admittedly noisy environment.
I used Belden RG-213 for quite awhile due to its renowned UV resistance
but just under a decade ago switched to the Times Microwave LMR-400 for
its similar size and better specs. I haven't been disappointed.
Note - the installation of standard PL-259 connectors is a little more
involved but well worth the extra time to do it right.


Try Davis RF BuryFlex. *It's cheaper than LMR-400 and doesn't feed the
war machine.

What? You don't want me to eat?


I grew up in a Motorala GED (now General Dynamics-Scottsdale) household..
* The Military Industrial Complex created me.


The commercial and military electronics industry didn't create me but
has been the majority of my employment.

That's kind of pathetic: a person who doesn't even believe in science
working in a critical defense industry.
