Re: Great experience with PAR Electronics EF-SWL

Another anecdotal bit of into that implies my antenna is strongest up to about 15 MHz...

I just noticed that most of the stations I've added to my MEM. PANEL over the past 6 months are between roughly 500 kHz and 15 MHz.

Re: Great experience with PAR Electronics EF-SWL

I'll be happy to try to capture some data... I don't know how to decode NDB signals, not having done so before. If you'll let me know what software / decoding to use I'll give it a try. I do see some signals down in the VLF range right now. I'm getting some pretty strong lightning QRN - not surprisi...

Re: Great experience with PAR Electronics EF-SWL

The kit is simply a nice package, with good quality components. Yeah, it's just a wire and a balun and an SO-238 connector for coax. But it's a good wire, a nice box, and a quality connector. :) I haven't noticed a lack of signals at any particular set of frequencies... I pick up stuff all across th...

Re: Verifying Install?

Stick a wire in the antenna port. You should be able to pick up something.

What's This Minor Audio Distortion From?

From time to time I've tuned in the US time station WWV and noticed a little bit of distortion in the time announcement in the form of a "crackle". Specifically, it's on the word "hours", right on the first syllable. Here are some examples: http://Noel.ProDigitalSoftware.com/Foru...

Re: Wish List

Not to try to talk you out of your (good) suggestions, but regarding your item 3, just in case you haven't run across it yet... If you press the [MCTR] button at the top right of the RX CONTROL window, clicking entries you have saved in the MEM PANEL will change modes and tune the stations you click...

Re: SDRuno suggestions...

You point out an issue that seems common with new users (based on my reading)... The product SHOULD remember where you left it without your having to do anything. But don't despair, there's a pretty good workaround. What you need to do when you have things set up the way you like is save your worksp...
