Cool Site for SW Fans

Post by Calvert DeForest » Sat Jan 02, 2021 11:36 am

I happened across this site a couple of months ago, and have been having a lot of fun with it:

http://websdr.org/

It's a collection of streaming shotwave tuners from around the world. Most of the tuners accomodate multiple simultaneous users with unique tuning capability. You can switch between AM, CW, USB and LSB modes as well. Great for listening to both shortwave stations and hams. You can even log presets of your favorite frequencies for later reference. You can use the web tuners or an available app for Android (unfortunately none for iOS at this time). So far I've had a lot of fun with it.


If you ask who I'm voting for, I'll tell you I'm voting for the person I'm voting for.

Looks interesting. But it will be a steep learning curve for me.


During the middle ages they celebrated the end of the plague with wine and orgies. Does anyone know if there is anything planned when this one ends?

Too much RFI over here at my QTH to enjoy shortwave on my Drake radio these days. However, the radio still does awesome at DX'ing FM. I get 100.7 from Sarnia frequently.

A lot of RFI here too. I haven't been able to track down the source.

Once a year I pack up my radio and some wire for an antenna and head out to a quiet place in the country for a few hours of clear listening,
I call it my mini DXpedition. I've been doing it for about 20 years now.
