SW Radio Log (12/20/2019)
I had a few minutes around 2:45PM CST to sit down with the Grundig G5 at the kitchen table so I went right over to 40 meter band to listen to some amateur radio.
I didn't have my headphones on since I only had about 20 free minutes so I didn't catch call signs but I did hear amateurs announce that they were in the following locations:
- Clarksville, New Hampshire
- Elgin, Illinois
- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
- New Jersey (city was not legible)
The Grundig G5 is perfect for listening to amateur radio since it can decode single sideband transmissions. My Tecsun PL-660, that I recently pulled back out of storage, has the same ability but seems to be a tad more noisy on shortwave.
