Default What are you doing with shortwave?

Curious what people are doing primarily.
Are you focused on DX? Program listening? Obtaining QSLs? Listening to pirates? Utilities? Ham radio?

With the world market filled with good cheap shortwave receivers, any ideas how to persuade good content to expand or start? Some one-off like Radio Nikkei thing perhaps?

Listening to Radio Australia on 12065 Khz at the moment (1510), good signal: 45444. Antenna: indoor 25 foot loop, receiver: Tecsun PL-660.


Hi

I use it to listen to foreign radios :

- and get some point of view from external sources (example : the middle
east current situation described by KOL Israel and IRIB are a bit
different :-) )

- if possible get some DX (from France, I can listen to Australia, New
Zeeland, South America, ...).

Sometimes the BBC World Service broadcast is better heard from Ascencion
Island than England, but that's one of the properties of shortwave
propagation.... ;-)

PSK31? Or some other mode?


Yes. There are more efficient modes but not suitable for rag-chewing
(which I loathe) except for CW which I can only do by keyboard and
decoder.




Are you saying you loathe rag-chewing, or loathe modes that are not
suitable for rag-chewing?

All the best,


Kevin.

The former. I am incapable of casual conversation due to my Ass Burgers!
