Update on the 525

The NRD-525 that was recently on the bench has gone back to the M6BOH/M6JOJ shack, but not before I had a chance to use it on my recently constructed random long-wire and 9:1 un-un. I had some fun getting the hang of decoding HF weather faxes using the FLDigi package which can be obtained from W1HKJ Software – home of FLDigi

The image looks slanted because I have not spent time calibrating the sound card on my laptop. I’ll come back to that another time…
