RMRC DX-Camp

Hello friends,

From September 28. until October 4. there will be the 44. DX-Camp
of the Rhein-Main-Radio-Club in Langenselbold near Frankfurt.
As usual during the first days we’ll stick our ears and antennas out to the airwaves for real hardcore DXing, supported by lots of coffie or not so much of red vine or free beer. On friday we offer a warm or cold buffet and on saturday a warm snack.

Fr. and Sat. evening will be some lessons from Manfred Rippich about visiting broadcasting station all over the world Robert Kipp about Radio St. Helena and the St. Helena-Day Nov.09 Harald Gabler shows pictures of the new QSL-Calendar 2010

And the next sensation: The brain new DSP-High-End Receiver RDR54C1 we have got from Fa. Reuter Elekronik for some tests.

All that is the normal procedure every year, one might say, but this year is special. For the first time everyone may watch everthing happening via the magic internet!

Tuesday – Saturday 18.00- 24.00 UTC
on www.rmrc.de
got to: RMRC Webcam
if you will be asked for password: rmrc

Livestream is without audio at webpage

Livestream with audio go for: Link
(only, if there is no test-picture)

Some of our members or other enthusiastic DXers would like to
take part, but can’t, because of various reasons like work, time,
illness or simply ’cause of a to far distance.

For the first time you and any DXer can click in to the DX-Camp and watch, what’s going on. There will be a chat, to talk to DXers present on the event. You may ask them all sorts of questions, like what the hear and where it’s coming from. You may even follow some lectures with your own eyes and ears, even if you’re hundreds of miles away from the meeting. Chats are held in german and englisch and perhaps a mixture of everything european including hands and feet, due to the use of video. And you will get a QSL-Card from this event.

This is following the ideas of Thomas Moeller and Harald Gabler and
realisation Lutz Winkler and they hope to find lots of interested DXers to either come to the meeting, or watch it via the internet.
