There's a quick and easy way of telling if the 30 Meter Ham Radio band is open to Europe, especially if you are located in the western USA. Look for the famous 10.100 Mhz weather RTTY signal out of Germany. If it's strong, it's very likely there's an excellent opening to Europe.

New Video: A quick overview of the CK-340 Industrial Countdown Timer / Count Up Timer from Electronics USA. The CK-340 features a very rugged and heavy duty remote control intended for industrial use. It's built to last! http://electronicsusa.com/Industrial-Digital-Timer.html

The DGPS system eliminated many stations, and that has opened the band up for more DXing possibilities with fewer strong stations cloggging the band! Here's a quick overview from my perpective. I use MultiPSK to decode the DGPS signal, along with a Ten Tec RX-340 receiver.

The CK-2 LED Dual Time Zone Digital Desk Clock is popular among Ham Radio operators, as well as the US Military! It displays time in UTC and Local timezones, or any two time zones. Its beautiful LED display tells time in Hours, Minutes, and Seconds.

CW selectivity is rather poor on many older model general coverage shortwave receivers. A high quality audio filter can greatly improve this! See how the Timewave DSP-9+ audio filter greatly improves CW reception of a classic Kenwood R-1000 receiver.

Here's a quick look at a classic Cronus 3T vintage digital LED stopwatch timer, manufactured by Intersil in the mid 1970's.

Amazing shortwave listening catch! HiFer FCC Part 15 unlicensed beacon MTI, located near Stone Mountain, GA, received in Victorville, CA on June 19, 2016 at 0140 UTC. Received on 13.557 MHz using an Icom 718 and a G5RV antenna. The signal was EXTREMELY weak with heavy QSB (fading). My trusty 718 did a great job pulling in this beacon, with the 500 Hertz CW filter engaged and the IF shift properly adjusted to help reduce noise. It was a tough catch. Listen carefully and you will hear two full IDs of MTI.

Amazing shortwave listening catch!  HiFer FCC Part 15 unlicensed beacon K6FRC, located near Patterson, CA, received in Victorville, CA on June 16, 2016 at 2100 UTC. K6FRC transmit power is 0.001 watts into a Ham Stick vertical antenna. Received on 13.565 MHz using an Icom 718 and a G5RV antenna. The signal was generally  very weak with heavy QSB (fading), but at times it peaked at about 569 as captured here on the video.  The 718 did a great job receiving this beacon, with the 500 Hertz CW filter engaged to help reduce noise.
