May logs

I thought I would post all my logs for May, as I haven’t had much time for individual posts. As mentioned in one of my posts, I am now using a homebrew pre-selector with the Tecsun Pl-600, and this has improved reception a lot. Not only does it peak up the signals well, but it removes all the image frequencies I was receiving previously. Well worth the effort and it was nice to do some homebrewing again.
