While the fancy, exspensive equipment sure makes DXing easier in some cases, here are two audio captures I have of my picking up two
radio stations, both in Richmond, VA., in the guest room at my parent's house. All I am using a Radio Shack DX398 shortwave receiver, and it's
stock antenna. That is it, nothing else. Picking up stations via tropo ducting 385 miles away!
WMXB "Mix 103.7"
WRXL "102.1 The X"
(Oh and the house sits IN a valley, not on top of a hill or has any height advantage).
Trying for the big catch?
