NDB-DX für Dummies

nein, kein neues Buch aus der “… für Dummies”-Reihe. Hartmut Wolff hat sich die Mühe gemacht, und für einen Normalsterblichen die notwendigen Einstellungen von SpectrumLab fürs NDB-DX beschrieben.

SpectrumLab von Wolfgang Büscher ist wohl *das* Tool zur Analyse von Soundfiles schlechthin, und unterstützt von Trägerguckern, NDB-DXern hin zu Fledermaus-Forschern restlos alles und jeden, der irgendwelche Geräusche untersuchen möchte. Was aber leider auch bedeutet, daß es nicht nur ein unglaublich “mächtiges” Werkzeug ist, es ist für einen Gelegenheits-User mit seinem undurchdringlich erscheinenden Dschungel aus Hunderten von Reitern, Checkboxen, Drop-Down-menus auch ein Tool mit einer sehr flachen Lernkurve.

Welche Einstellungen wie und wo vorzunehmen sind, was sie bewirken, wie sie interagieren und wie das zum NDB-DX zu nutzen ist, ist hier beschrieben. Damit ist zumindestens eine Grundkonfiguration möglich und eine Grundlage zur individuellen Konfiguration und Lernphase möglich.

South Herts Radio

South Herts Radio will now broadcast as follows effective from 3rd Jan 2010.

Every other Sunday from Sunday 3rd January from 08.00 – 20.00 UTC. Shortwave 5835 KHz (52 meter band) with low power to Europe from the U.K.

Only when our webstream is on air can you find us on FM anywhere between 87.6 – 107.9 MHz throughout the U.K. and Europe and on dedicated relays usually 90.9 MHz in South & East Herts, 97.9 MHz in West Herts and 102.5 MHz in North Herts thanks to our listeners relaying our webstreams on legitimate low power devices.

We also operate on (WFM) 863.5 MHz in South Herts and 864.5 MHz in North Herts at a higher power of sometimes up to 50 watts.

Weekdays Mon – Fri from Jan 4th we will be on (shortwave only) with low power on 3935 KHz (76 meter band) from 19.00 – 22.00 UTC. We are also testing 7325 KHz in the 41 meter band with low power, times and days vary. When we say low power we mean just above micro power but effective when conditions are on our side.

We are also testing on the AM band in the medium wave band in parts of the U.K. again thanks to some of our listeners relaying us on low power devices. Example tx
http://www.vcomp.co.uk/spitfire/spitfire.htm any frequency that is clear in steps of 9 Khz.

Finally we are relayed by other stations (usually clandestine) at various times and frequencies see http://www.southhertsradio.com/frequencies.html for more info.

Once again the live webstream should be on air every other Sunday with (limited slots) but we do offer an excellent listen again service and downloads which we will be expanding on a much greater scale in 2010. Look out for changes to our website and schedules soon. We may miss the odd Sunday but this is only a hobby station.

SHR is for the serious DXer and offshore radio enthusiast with DX related shows and pirate tributes mostly as listen on demand files. Reception reports are always welcome.

In the New Year I will be devoting more time to making new shows for Laser Hot Hits. You can hear some of my previous shows for Laser on the Humyo player at http://www.southhertsradio.com/again.html

Happy new year and 73.
