    If you haven' tried Globaltuners, give it a shot. Dozens of tuners are available from all over the world and you can check prop, your own audio, etc. I listen while at work, while traveling or just when I feel like connecting w/my PC. It's a great way to promote ham radio and many new hams exist today because of it. Signed up users will exceed 33,000 today and is quite a milestone as the site is totally free. Sign-up takes less than a minute.

    PS....maybe you have some spare gear to put online, too?

    Thanks Tom

    Tom,
    I also use Globaltuners when I travel. It sure is a great way to keep up on the nets I participate in. Thanks for providing your receivers on Globaltuners.
    I suggest checking it out for anyone who hasn't done so already.

    73,

    VR2HF - HONG KONG DX Remote Receiver FT-817

    One of the best remote receivers on globaltuners is run by my friend Dan VR2HF (K7DAN) with his FT-817.
    Click here VR2HF Remote Receiver

    For North American or European hams, you can listen to the vast difference in the 20 meter and 40 meter bands in one of the best locations for sub-tropical DX.

    Also, you will find that 28MHz is often open... but there is a lot of QRM from southeast asian taxis and mainland mil frequency-hoppers.

    What is the purpose of global tuners?

    In the FAQ, with regard to a problem of computers crashing when accessing the program, users are told that "even removing Windows XP Service pack 3 solves the problem." I think even suggesting this is preposterous on the part of the web site.

    Wow this is great that we are more than 33k users on this network. I remember being exited when we past the 10k users.

    The purpose of GlobalTuners is to give everyone access to remotely controlled receiver, so they can use is as if they where physically in front of the receiver.

    As for the FAQ and sp3 recommendation, this was a bug with Flash player from Adobe inc and it should probably be removed in the FAQ

    It's pretty cool to be able to DX our own signal, for testing purpose or for fun. I Hope the network will eventually get more RX.

    Way to Go Guys!

    GT is a great way to get started in SWL or amateur radio. Thanks to Tom (W1WCN) and everyone who makes their receiver available.

    Website Terrible

    Their website has serious problems. I can't even get past submitting a request for an account .. it just sits there until you give up.

    Ok, I'm on a superior OS, MacOSX 10.6, and using Firefox.

    Requiring Windows and IE is so 1995.

    Move along, nothing to see here.
