The last day were quite nice signals to hear, even if everything is concentrated with few exceptions on the East Coast.

Stream Deck!

I control the antennas of my receiving station via the Internet. This is possible with a web browser, but also much more elegantly with the small Stream Deck from Elgato. Mike Müller from Remoteswitch.de has programmed the appropriate extension for this, in the current version also with a status display. So I can now operate my RemoteQTH antenna switch simply by pressing a button and within a second I also get the feedback – and the corresponding button lights up. A wonderful solution, with a lot of invisible work in the background.

Thank you DM5XX Michael Müller, very good work!

Today I was at my station with two officials from the Salzburg telecommunications office to find my interference in the medium wave and 160 meter amateur radio bands. They examined in detail what I was receiving and how and then the measuring bus, equipped with the very best Rohde&Schwarz equipment, drove around the area for a long time. 

After some time, I got the call – they actually found the interference far away in a westerly direction, a defective (but high-quality) surveillance camera that had been in use for 10 years and – presumably the power supply – was now causing this interference under load. I was at my station when the fault suddenly disappeared. Score. The owner will hopefully replace everything as soon as possible.

It was great how competently and quickly I was helped by the Austrian Radio Monitoring. Many thanks for that!

The last days are still mostly stations from South America are heard, Peru is the last days the preferred direction of the received stations. Like the last weeks the signals are overall very weak. Due to the summer QRN listening is so often not the great joy. The most beautiful reception of the last days was Radio Candarave from Tacna near the border with Bolivia and Chile.

MW Logs.

Here are my MW logs for the last few days. The transatlantic signals are very weak and can currently only be heard from South America. Some signals on 1440, 1480 and 1490 kHz are too weak to be identified, but maybe I will be able to identify them in the next few days. Radio Nacional FM, Lima on 1320 kHz is a first reception I was quite happy about.
