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 It is basically a newer version of the Field 550 but with Bluetooth so you can stream content to the radio from a PC or smart device.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.
