SDR – Try it out

Have you ever wanted to listen to Short Wave Radio but you don’t have the equipment? Tecsun, an Australian company in NSW have made available a Software Defined Radio (SDR) on the internet. The receiver is located in Gosford NSW. Yes you can enjoy all the real fades and other noises we associate with HF Radio.

You can tune it to the desired HF Frequency and Mode (e.g. select frequency 4835 MHz, select the mode AM and you may hear the new Australian Short Wave station Ozy Radio, currently reporting an power output is 500w and the locationĀ is confirmed asĀ Razorback near Camden approx 45 km southwest of Sydney.)

You can also listen to the amateur, marine and explore other interesting data on the HF bands too using the SDR.

Enjoy!
