Thanks for all the advice. His price, especially given the conversion between CAN and US dollars, is too high for me -- nearly CAN$600 including all the shipping, brokerage, bank fees and the...

Are AAC+ and xHE-AAC synonyms? (In searching around for information, I am left with the impression that the first is a *brand name* for the second.)

I suspect that it might go in a new box, add a speaker, a battery, and all the right switches, and it would work. But that's well beyond...

I listened 2300 - 0000 UTC this evening (Thursday 7 Nov 2019) to the 6040 kHz DRM b/c from Galbeni. It's the first time in, I think, months that I've been able to decode anything from RRI. It...

Hi Terje,
Ankit organised it, though there was someone else who I dealt with at the end about the shipment.

I received, a few weeks ago, a package from Avion. It contained a new circuit board for my DR-1401. I am less than amateurish about doing electrical work, so I wrote back with my thanks, asking for...

To be honest, I don't know. I haven't been paying attention to 64- vs 16-QAM modes. Sometimes the Avion decodes at around 10 dB but other times it won't even at 16 dB.

I was hearing the WINB 13755 kHz DRM signal a little while ago, at 1445 UTC Friday 8 Mar 2019. I got nowhere near 100% audio and it's just as well since it is the fax-machine sounds being broadcast,...

Nigeria 15120 back again

I haven't heard V Nigeria's DRM in several months on 15120 kHz. I haven't seen any recent other reports of V Nigeria, but I don't know if they've actually been off air.
