Shortwave Shindig: February 28, 2015

Many thanks to those of you who recorded the Shortwave Shindig live from the Winter SWL Fest in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, USA on February 28, 2015. The broadcast began around 0300 UTC (10:00 PM EST) on 7570 kHz. You will note that the time extended beyond one hour--this was due to a 10 minute period of time when the audio feed dropped due to a bad Internet connection. 

The Shindig will be rebroadcast on March 8 2015 at 0300 UTC on 7570 kHz without interruption.

I've labeled the embedded recording below with the contributor and location where the recording was made.  Again, many thanks for your contributions to the archive!

The Shortwave Shindig: March 15, 2014

Every year at the Winter SWL Fest in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, radio producer David Goren hostsThe Shortwave Shindig, a live event that celebrates the art and culture of long distance listening. This year, for the first time, the Shortwave Shindig was broadcast live on shortwave. The Shindig signed on for one hour at 10:00 ET (02:00 UTC) on 7,570 kHz via WRMI's new Okeechobee facility. 

Last week, I asked readers on my blog, The SWLing Post, if they could record the Shortwave Shindig.  I received two shortwave recordings and one FM recording--I will add others to this post as they arrive.

Matthew Williams took this photo of his TS-590S and Grundig G3 while recording the Shortwave Shindig.

Our first recording comes from Matthew Williams who recorded the show on his Kenwood TS-590 with an 80 meter doublet antenna in New Paltz, NY:

Ed McCorry made the following recording at his home in Willow Spring, NC. He used an ICOM R-75 with a 120 ft. longwire antenna:

"The Professor" recorded this FM broadcast from inside the hotel where the Winter SWL Fest was held. Evidently, an in-house pirate radio FM station was relaying the broadcast:

Shortwaveology #2 now on SoundCloud

Radio producer and shortwave radio artist, David Goren, has recently posted his 2008 production of Shortwaveology #2 on Soundcloud. If you like the sonic texture of the shortwaves, you'll love this recording:

Perhaps if we badger David enough--say, on his Facebook page, or on his Soundcloud feed--he'll produce Shortwaveology #3? Hey, it's worth a try!

Wait a minute.  You haven't heard Shortwaveology #1? Take a listen:

In the spirit of full disclosure, David's a good friend. That is, he will be, until he figures out that I'm asking readers to heckle him into producing another installment of his ongoing work, Shortwaveology. Oh, what the heck; friends come along every day, Shortwave installments don't.  Let's hound him! (Whatcha waiting for, David?)

David Goren's numbers station installation audio

DG-Performance-ShortwaveTwo months ago, I posted that David Goren, talented radio producer and shortwave radio artist, created a Numbers Station installation in the Secret Wars exhibition at the Proteus Gowanus gallery in Brooklyn, NY. David has recently published the audio that accompanies his installation.

Take note that this is not a radio documentary--rather, it's an expansion of his original piece, and part of his sound installation at Proteus Gowanus.  Enjoy:
