Warren,

Impressive reporting. For the times are you using UTC or EDT? I don't have some of those catches and will try from here in Northern Va.

Greetings!  I'm new at this reporting, so please bear with me.  Last week, I had the privilege of indulging a childhood hobby again when I took along my shortwave portable to a remote area in NW Wisconsin (where we could receive only one over-the-air TV station)  With my bride's indulgence, I was able to spend most evenings, one morning and one afternoon simply tuning away on the dial, using the resources from this group as my guide.
 
I can wax nostalgically for my original DXing days in the mid-60s when Radio Moscow was obliterating the bands with owerpowering signals, when there were a few less Christian broadcasters, when more countries felt SWL was an important method to getting its word out, when I really raced home daily to check the mail for the latest QSL card, program schedule or other item from a foreign land.  I still have my paperback from Deutsche Welle entitled "Your Reporter in Germany" but I don't think I have its newspaper "HAllo Friends"
 
For better or worse, this is what my last week's log looks like.  (Sorry that I didn't get all the religous broadcasters logged below.  One hour, I simply did a sweep of the bands to see how many I could log; filled one side of a sheet of paper, havning left my laptop safely at home.  It was a vacation from all that, you know!)

Warren Dude!
Nice to meet you-Been Listening To SW since 1976 when RCI did a peice on Bats! Since then i got real SW stuff instead of trying to struggle hearing a stereo tuner pullin sw signals on medium wave! I now use a Grundig(Eton)YB500 radio,with FM RDS,and a Sangean ATS818ACS with cassette tape recorder! Many signals at times are good here otherwise,static at times! Do you know why The Beeb dropped English To The Americas? Yes,73's and more to you from Hot Sticky Tennessee!
