    The AR7030 is one of the best perfroming receivers, once you get around the menu system lol. You had some very nice catches from back in the day, but with SDR there’s a lot more functionality such as wideband recording and a myriad of signal conditioning options. Good luck!

    Just looked back at my recordings from a few years ago when I was really into MW DX and have the following: CFRB, VOCM 590kHz, WBZZ 1030kHz, WWZN 1510kHz, WBBR 1130kHz, WEGP 1390kHz, WFAN 660kHz, WTAM, 1100kHz, CBC R1 1400kHz (also 6160kHz relay). My best recording by a mile was CFRB.
    Most caught with a AR7030, really have to get back into MW DX now I have an SDR. I made an old skool MW loop years back and is still in the shed but will need a bit of restoration to get back to full working order, it worked really well.

    Great catches, Clint. Here WNYC from New York City is easily received, but you got it from your shack over the pond with an indoor antenna no less, that is absolutely fantastic. As an aside, that is one beautiful receiver too. Thanks for the post.

      Hi Mario, thank you very much! I’m travelling to Brazil in a month or so with my work, so I will be taking a portable with me and hope to have some very interesting DX sessions from Para and Bahia. Hopefully I will be able to post some reception videos on my return. Thanks again.
