Bare-bones DXing in the garden:
Yesterday evening was very pleasant weather wise so whilst dinner was finishing cooking, I took the Tecsun PL-600 out to the garden table and logged the following just using the built-in whip. Well not quite ‘bare-bones’ as I had the laptop to confirm schedules and use my logging program. But it was away from the RFI (laptop on battery) and it’s interesting what can be logged without using an external antenna.
