This YouTube video is a first look at the new Eton Field BT radio and what went into my decision into buying a shortwave radio again. Sorry for the bad audio from my mic. I am looking into getting a better mic soon.
Hello everyone! In case you may be wondering if this site is still active, then no need to fear.
I haven’t been able to update this WordPress site in a quite so I apologize for being absent since my last post on the Nintendo Switch.
You should expect more posts in the weeks to come, especially radio related content. I recently purchased a slightly used Eton Field with Bluetooth. It is basically a newer version of the Field 550 but with Bluetooth so you can stream content to the radio from a PC or smart device.
The Field BT will be reviewed sometime after I get my hands on it next week. I had also traded in my two year old Sangean WR-22 to Amazon.
I am thinking of doing something special on YouTube once I get the Field BT. There’s an idea of possibly creating a weekly YouTube stream session on weekend evenings.
It will be via Google Hangouts and viewers can interact with the show called “Shortwave Tonight.” It would something similar to a game session on Twitch, but with radio and other radio listeners.
I am planning on doing it primarily on Saturday nights between 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. However, times may vary depending on availability or some internet fluke.
Needless to say, I think it will be a lot of fun interacting with other SWLs and a talking about radio while listening to some interesting stations.
Sorry for the delay. Sometimes life gets busy. Other times…stormy weather shuts the power off and your work ends up deleted.
Nonetheless, Chris delivers this third episode and talks about the recent disappearance of international broadcasters on shortwave and where they are going (or not going). In Part 2, there is news of upcoming Eton receivers, if you’re not convinced of the “death of shortwave” argument, that SWLs may want to consider.
