No RX only antenna was used unless otherwise stated Per individual recording
**Jan 12 2012 or so I added a Major improvement to my Station - IF Panadapter using PowerSDR/IF 18.104.22.168 - This enables me to customize filtering @ a DSP level allowing me to A) Reduce Noise B) Narrow Filters in any mode C) Multi-RX with 2 'Tunable Recievers' D) Have a visual representation of the band and signals, without having to either constantly tune, or rely on DX clusters & Spots. I have Added 'SDR' to the end of the File names that appear in the Flash player when you click play to seperate those recordings that have been made with Just the Stock TS-940S**

Juhani - OH3SR- Kangasala Finland
4008.3 mi / 6450.8 km
This AM Juhani was on the K3UK Sked page with me, I asked him if we could try TB as signals @ this hour from western EU were strong, I believe Juhani was right at his sun rise durring this QSO. It took a bit to complete as QSB was very deep and long. You may notice that i sent Him a 559, when I 1st heard him he was a true 559, I always keep with the origional report as to not confuse the operator with changing reports mid-qso even if there is QSB. Thank You Juhani
