With all the current situation I wonder if anyone would be interested who is licenced of course and who is not can SWL on hackgreen on 80m ?

Why 80m you ask ? Think it's best chance hearing most stations around the uk and even into Europe while many have 11m at home but does not have ears .

Not intending to be a typical net just a laid back informal net or group gathering

Stay safe .

Hi Matt,

"Laid back informal net" on 80m would be a joy even to listen to as a SWL! Smile

I often listen on 80m just to find such jewels and weirdly nowadays normal "conversation" is lacking between Hams. You get bored of the old "5/9 number XXX 73 QRZ" competition nonsense, or the geriatrics playing top-trumps with their medical ailments Wink

Thanks also for the mention of Hackgreen, nice webSDR Smile

All the best,
Victor

Cheers Victor , I'm fortunate to have s4 at worst when the band not noisey or static crashes as 160 , 80 and sometimes on 40m can be effected alot by static crashes which stormy weather .

I went back to a few stations last night in 40 and 20m just to see if was getting out and you guessed it " 2EOFGX your 59 over " me - thanks for the contact you are also 5-9 into south uk , back to you. " qrz"

I rather not have a contact like that if that's the case ... just have to listen as see how the individual is working may be not good english .

Stay safe 73 .

Matt , CTX Admin team.

I'm glad I'm not the only one uninterested in the short contact overs Wink
Nothing better than a good rag-chew for me even if only listening in Smile

Much appreciated for the Hackgreen mention, I'd not had much luck with webSDR but theirs is a little cracker! Spent the last hour or so playing around with it and got it running on my android tablet and even my android phone - flipping handy Smile
Was nice to make a comparison between it and my old analogue setup, seems my old FT757 and bits of wire antenna do a smashing job. Got to admit though, much nicer twiddling knobs and listening intently through a big extension speaker.

Be good to listen out for you.

All the best, stay safe,
Victor

Nice and neat setup there Matt, my missus would be impressed. (Then give me an ear bashing at "why" my shack is such a shambles!!)

I'm an old fart so used to old tech Wink
Plus as you get more deaf with age, analogue sounds better on the ears. I'm afraid that modern DSP sounds like Metal-Mickey with his head stuck in a bucket of water....in an echoey bathroom....with the taps running....Ha! Very Happy To me anyway Wink
(Oh flip, you're probably not old enough to even remember Metal-Mickey)

Be good to hear you on air Matt.

All the best to you and yours,
Victor

Always interested Matt, will have to SWL on 80 because my antenna doesn't go there. I really need to sort that out.

73's Gary.
