✎ Virtual DXing

This is a fun discovery: an actual long wave, medium wave and short wave radio you can tune in and play on your computer. The radio receiver is at the University of Twente in Enschede in the Netherlands and tunes the entire AM band, with a graphic display that shows the sounds on each frequency allowing you to browse with less of the ear-splitting hiss we lived with in analogue days.

I’ve been having so much fun playing with the various knobs available, but have settled down now on 6080 kHz in the 49 meter band to listen to Radio Mi Amigo International in the proper way: with fade, hiss and AM sound modulation. It’s great!

Incredible! It can’t bring back Radio Netherlands, alas, although Jonathan Marks has preserved many of the legendary Media Network shows here (if I haven’t Goved the link!): http://jonathanmarks.libsyn.com/

You had, but we repaired it because we’re really nice! ;-)

Ta muchly. Suspected I had. Every forum I comment on seems to have a different way of ‘doing’ links, and I seldom match the right method to the right site.

Ours is pure ordinary HTML, if that helps!
