Trump taken to hospital by helicopter after Covid diagnosis

At 6.20pm on a day of turbulence even by the standards of the Trump White House, the US president departed by helicopter for the hospital. Wearing a face mask and suit and walking normally, Trump gave reporters a thumbs-up and a short wave but did not stop to talk.

Shortwave Numbers Stations

Covering the convergence of intelligence, tech, and conflict since 2002 Shortwave Numbers Stations Scot Terban joined me to discuss the use of shortwave numbers stations, recently declassified KGB investigative techniques for identifying recipients of those broadcasts, how shortwave has changed....

20 meters

20-meter band. The 20-meter or 14-MHz band is a portion of the shortwave radio spectrum, comprising frequencies stretching from 14.000 to 14.350 MHz. The 20-meter band is widely considered among the best for long-distance communication ( DXing ), and is one of the most popular—and crowded—during contests .

Radio Nigeria Kaduna: Inside dwindling fortunes of Sardauna’s legacy

With a limping 40-year-old transmitter breathing life into Radio Nigeria Kaduna, listeners and staff believe the station is heading for a permanent shut down…, unless urgent rescue comes. For almost 60 years, Radio Nigeria Kaduna, also called Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Kaduna....

Tracking Down Radio Frequency Noise Source, With Help from Mother Nature

Amateur radio operators and shortwave listeners have a common enemy: QRM, which is ham-speak for radio frequency interference caused by man-made sources. Indiscriminate, often broadband in nature, and annoying as hell, QRM spews forth from all kinds of sources, and can be difficult to locate and fix.

Radiance enhancement and shortwave upwelling radiative flux methods for efficient detection of cloud scenes

Abstract: The description, imagery and interpretation of cloud scenes by remote sensing datasets from Earth-orbiting satellites have become a great debate for several decades. Presently, there are many models for cloud detection and its classifications have been reported.

TuneIn Blocking Debacle: Bombing Internet Radio Back to the Stone Age

When it comes to copyright infringement matters, especially when that involves commercial players doing battle to prevent the wholesale spread of content, my basic position is that all is fair in love and war.

Still no sign of missing pair six months after they were last seen

Police have renewed calls to locate two people missing in the Victorian Alps six months after their disappearance. Russell Hill was last heard on HF radio in the Wonnangatta Valley on March 20. He had been camping near the Wonnangatta River with Carol Clay, having left home a day earlier.

Increased extreme precipitation challenges nitrogen load management to the Gulf of Mexico

By setting up model experiments with and without climate variability, we distinguished and quantified how climate regulates N loads in this region. We found that climate-related variability (including precipitation, temperature, and shortwave radiation) has accounted for 76% and 72% of the monthly....

Small-scale volcanic aerosols variability, processes and direct radiative impact at Mount Etna during the EPL-RADIO campaigns

The aerosol properties of Mount Etna’s passive degassing plume and its short-term processes and radiative impact were studied in detail during the EPL-RADIO campaigns (summer 2016–2017), using a synergistic combination of observations and radiative transfer modelling. Summit observations show extremely high particulate matter concentrations.

World Radio Lets Your Fingers Do the Walking

Listening to radio from distant countries used to take a shortwave rig, but thanks to the Internet we can now pull in streams from all over the globe from the comfort of our own desktop. With a few clicks you can switch between your local news station and the latest in pop trends from Casablanca.

Excessive Heat over the Labor Day Weekend, breezy north and east winds will develop Monday night and continue into Tuesday

EPAC surface high builds through Oregon into the Great Basin Monday night into Tuesday as short wave troughing digs into the Intermountain West. North to east surface wind increases over interior NorCal late Monday night into Tuesday morning in response to tightening low level pressure gradient.

Comparing Shortwave Antennas With RTL-SDR And Python

Measuring the performance of antennas in absolute terms that can involve a lot of expensive equipment and specialized facilities. For practical applications, especially when building antennas, comparing performance in relative terms is more practical. Using cheap RTL-SDR dongles and Python, [Eric....

Innovation: Design and performance of a novel GNSS antenna for rover applications

THE ANTENNA. This crucial component of any radio transmitting or receiving system has a history that actually predates the invention of radio itself. The first antennas were used by Princeton professor Joseph Henry (after whom the unit of inductance is named) to demonstrate the magnetization of needles by a spark generator.

Land surface albedo dynamics [in 'State of the Climate in 2019'].

Albedo is the fraction of shortwave radiation reflected by the surface and depends on a number of surface attributes such as snow cover, vegetation cover, and soil moisture among others. The year 2019 exhibited large regional contrasts in terms of land surface albedo in the visible part of the spectrum (see Plate 2.

The Arecibo Telescope Is Damaged — And That’s A Big Deal

MADDIE SOFIA, HOST: You’re listening to SHORT WAVE from NPR. The first word Ed Rivera-Valentin ever spoke was luna – moon in Spanish. Ed grew up on the northern coast of Puerto Rico near the Arecibo telescope. ED RIVERA-VALENTIN: The reason I am in astronomy and planetary science is because of that telescope.

Photosensitive Glass Market Industry Size, Growth, Trends, Analysis and Forecast

Photosensitive glass is a crystal-clear glass that belongs to the certain silicate glasses family, in which an image of a mask is captured by microscopic metallic particles in the glass when it is exposed to short wave radiations such as ultraviolet light.

Amateur radio celebrates “70 Years of Operation of the Museum of...

The two radio amateurs Polydoros Stavropoulos (SV1AHH) and George Petrakis (SV1GGF), will activate a special competition in the short waves from the 1st to the 30th of September 2020. These 30 days are dedicated to the effort of the Air Force executives for the creation and Her museum. The Air Force History Museum was established in 1950.

The radio we lived in danger

Marking a century of Argentine broadcasting is a perfect occasion to remember some sounds… These memories take us back to familiar voices and melodies reaching us through a Noblex Carina receiver, or a Spica receiver, whose leather case had a smell that, just by closing our eyes, we can remember perfectly.
