Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Paul Walker, who shares the following video of his open-air DX shack in McGrath, Alaska. Paul notes:
I got my iRig working and recorded audio of Rádio Nacional da Amazônia on 11780 kHz directly from the radio into my phone and it sounds really good with such a strong signal here in ALASKA. Take a listen….

Thanks for sharing this, Paul! That does sound amazing–like a local station!
You, sir, are a true DXer! Anyone who regularly braves frigid temps to chase far-flung DX is made of some incredibly tough stuff!
Thanks for sharing, Paul!
Fantastic reception, are you using an antenna pre-amp?
Yes, as it says in the video description.. using a DXE Preamp, also an EmTech ZM2 tuner
Hi Paul, just wondering how you used iRig to record from the ATS25? Not familiar with that app.
Its not an app, its a piece of hardware.. it interfaces between the radio and phone
Guitar player? 🙂
Nope, not a guitar player. It means for people who wanna do what I’m doing with it ,feed audio into a phone like this.
That’s some nice signal and the contrast couldn’t be bigger than that, at most if they had played some typical local music. 🙂
