SWL & Utility

 

This site is still under construction !


Since my early childhood I have been a very active

SWL    

(Short-Wave-Listener)

It was a really nice hobby but through the digitalization has lost much substance !

Earlier (in the 70s-80-90s) there were plenty of coastal radio stations, press radio, research-expeditions and military-stations on the hf-bands, nowadays there are only radio- stations,amateur-radio and some aircraft-radio stations, everything else is digital and almost all encrypted, a real pity ...


I'm listening frequently inbetween 10kHz-30MHz.

But I also have equipment for up to 3.15 GHz.

I'm a big fan of the german 3690 kHz amateur radio group!

 This is the equipment I am currently working with.

The RSPduo is a high performance dual-tuner 14-bit SDR receiver. Housed in a high quality steel enclosure, each tuner can operate individually anywhere between 1kHz and 2GHz with up to 10MHz of bandwidth or both tuners can operate simultaneously anywhere between 1kHz and 2GHz with up to 2MHz of bandwidth per tuner.

Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 Base Station Virtual Radar System

The SBS-1 is a portable Mode-S/ADS-B receiver that decodes transponder signals from aircraft.

Using the powerful Basestation software the SBS-1 displays ADS-B aircraft on a VIRTUAL RADAR SCREEN and identifies Mode S traffic with squawk and altitude.

My Active Antenna Signal Splitter

© Copyright by Ch. Breier© Copyright by Ch. Breier


My active antenna signal splitter "AntennaJet AAS300DP" is splitting the signal from one antenna to 3 different receivers simultaneous.


It is actually built by Dipl.Ing.(TU) Rudolf Ille and not by Bonito, they just stick their logo on it...


The AntennaJet has a wideband (>300MHz) and ultra low noise amplifier and can share one antenna up to 3 different receivers which can be tuned to fully different Frequencies, without switching the antenna cable or even pressing a button

 My Antennas

  For 10KHz-30MHz  I use a Grahn Antenna, Mini Whip, HDWA ,Wellbrook 1530+ and a 45m longwire.

For above 30 MHz I use a Dressler ara 900, Hamtronic DX-HT701 and some other very special Antennas... ;)

Over the years I had a lot of RX/TRX in my Shack.

Here are some pictures !

I wish I still had all my past receivers... ;)
