Howdy, this is Brooce.
I’ve been looking at what is happening
Everything else aside, the Part 15 experiments
are always happening – if not with actual hardware,
they are on paper – or in my mind almost all the time.
It’s always been that way.
At the same time, I am always experimenting with receiving.
LF, MF, and HF and some VHF almost all of the time.
It is a challange that I am enjoying – and this is an
apartment where there are no outside antennas (for now.)
I just don’t know the people here well enough to start
the “imposition” of outside RF radiators.
I have gear, two antenna phasors, a magnetic loop,
a DSP box, and a lot of other things here.
I have several Part 15 rigs also – something is almost
always running – although the power is usually very very
Ham radio is in the middle somewhere – I have a ham
license. If I can get the two above ideas “maximized”
ham radio will be no problem. It would be QRP of course.
I like to fly below the radar.
I have always looked upon my experiments as
“some kind of humorous undertaking. And in many
ways they are.
But things are turning more to the serious side now.
I want these things to really work.
It’s just a change of philosophy, I guess.
P.S. No comments needed here unless you want to.
P.S. #2 Thank to those who fixed the site after it had
gone down. We can’t thank you enough!May 25, 2016 at 10:32 pm #49175radio8zGuest

Great ideas start with a single thought in a single mind and it is good to read that your mind is thinking about radio things.
When I have a great idea it usually turns out that someone else has had this idea before me which is OK because I can benefit from their experience rather than wasting time reinventing things, but once in a while I hit on something original.
If you have a radio problem or need suggestions then this site is a good place to start. We are here to help each other.

I’m always glad to hear from you.
Summer is almost upon us.
There will be less family here and I
will have more time available to experiment.
I am interested in trying to make better indoor
Part 15 AM transmitting antennas. I may have
to run the AMT-3000 on batteries also. That would be
a fun thing to try. Especially considering that the transmitter
want to see 18 to 20 volts DC!
On the receiving end, I am always looking to bring
down the noise level on LF/MF/HF. I enjoy the
There are lots of great SWL web sites, but I
post things about receiving on here in hopes
that someone mught get interested in receiving –
perhaps a person who has never thought about it before.
I also feel a loyalty to Part 15.Us – so I post threads about
Even though SWBC stations continue to
go dark all over the world – there is still a lot to hear –
but you need a really good receiving set-up. A lot
of very interesting transmissions are down in the noise.
Back to the SS-Tran 3000 on batteries – I will be asking
for opinions on that Part 15 transmitter question.
It reminds of the days of vacuum tube portable radios
using – say – a 90 volt battery for the plates and a 1 1/2
volt battery for the filaments.
Very best wishes,
