Suggestion

Those of us that like to DX in the evening hours should be meeting up in this forum's chat room for real-time exchange of info. Just open the chat room in a new window and continue about your business. You should hear a sound when someone enters and/or sends a message. I go back to the Teamspeak day...

Re: 7/6 DX

Trying to stick to just P25 stuff for tonight, so a few more.

154.9050 N370 Litchfield NH Police
155.5200 N117 Hillsboro County NH Police

Nothing spectacular but signals remain good and strong. A lot of ME analog stuff as well given the 192.8 PL on a number of received signals.

Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

Carroll Hazen that runs Angelino's Sausage House trailer at the hamfest told me back in May when I saw him that he had a feeling this would get cancelled. Hopefully, all will be well for the May event. This is the stuff that sucks the most about Covid-19...other than people dying of course. While w...

Good morning,

Canada is making a visit this morning. Both weather broadcasts on 161.650 and 161.775 are being received here. 775 is the stronger of the two, and in French as I type this.

Google Balloon "Loon" on ADS-B

This is a first for me. I had heard some pilot chatter earlier in the evening about a Google balloon being visible. Then about 1/2 hour ago I noticed an aircraft at 52,900 feet on my ADS-B setup. Lo and behold, it was the balloon hovering over the NH/ME border and moving SE at about 45 knots. Pretty...

Re: 5/18/20 DX

To continue on this, VHF and UHF are - from Cape Cod anyway - opening to the north. Hearing Oxford ME County Sheriff on 155.070 192.8 very strong, as well as an increasing amount of Boston area UHF. No path to NYC from here tonight at this point.

Re: ADS-B

Thanks for this info Chris. There is now a Pro Stick Plus available that has a built-in bandpass filter for 1090 MHz. I grabbed one. I have a Pi sitting around unused so I'm going to give that a try; it'll free up the Airspy I'm using and allow me to share my data, so that's a win/win.
