The Fitzgerald sank many years ago on a shipping run; a very popular ballad was written about the sinking by Gordon Lightfoot, and it became one of his most popular songs. You can read about it here

SS Edmund Fitzgerald - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We welcome loggings of stations in a couple of our forums; For sw broadcasting, post here;

and for digital modes (non ham)

If all this sounds a bit confusing, I would take some time to read the information found in the HF gateway in our wiki...

proud of ICOM R-75

Yungchin, I am very much proud of our ICOM R-75. Imagine I am listening to 1323khz, almost 1mhz, longwave which suddenly mutated into an Arab shortwave station after hearing it differently. And very loud and crispy clear...Now I know they all depend on the antenna not the radio. So with the rest of the other products and other brands.

Actually that's MW not longwave, but a decent catch nonetheless. Yes, the antenna plays as much of a role in hearing something as the receiver. That's why when you put together something like this, you need to consider it as a system rather than as separate entities.

best regards..Mike
