SWL With my 6000 series radio
One thing that does not get much attention here on the forum is Short Wave Listening, The flex 6000 radios are amazing for SWL and sound amazing. I’ve been reading that Shortwave radio is making a slow comeback. It will be nice to hear more music & news from around the world again on the shortwave bands.
Some of the things I like about using a FlrexRadio to SWL are I take advantage of the “Memories” feature in SmatSDR and continue to build Shortwave radio database for easy recall.
I also use SmartSDR’s built-in NR & WNB noise reduction when necessary and it works great pulling stations out of the noise.
And the built-in SAM (synchronous Amplitude Modulation) Mode is perfect for SWL and dealing with signal fading.
FlexRadio has made listening to shortwave radio fun like it was when I was a younger with an old Hammarlund radio late at night listening to some distant stations breaking through the noise, but with 21st century tools like a FlexRadio it’s brought some of that excitement back.again.What are some of the thoughts you have about using your flex for SWL.
