  1. James, I moved to the country 11 years ago to escape the urban ‘hash’ which I put down to electronic and electrical devices in the home – halogen lamp transformers, plasma TVs, wi-fi extenders through the house wiring, and so on. I cant listen much inside my house due the ‘hash’ so have my receivers set up in the separate garage. Operating receivers with battery power does help. The DX League has found a solution for its members – we are running 2 SDRs at a very low noise location in the Bay of Islands. This has allowed members overwhelmed by urban hash to hear stations like the good old days.

  2. Is there anything left to listen to?I live in Pakuranga Auckland.Ive been a very keen SW listener and Utility SSB HF listener for many years.I have expensive receiveing equipment and a 100 ft listening dipole antenna.But the problem Ive experianced for the last 10 years is very strong “Hash” and fadeing SW stations,and or SW stations that have either stopped transmitting or have lowered their transmitt power.All my antenna conections are good and clean.But Ive found the “Hash” problem has become worse over the years almost like Rain static,an yet there is no rain.Some parts of the SW HF bands are worse than others.It’s almost ruined my listening pleasure.The HF utility stations such as NZ “Mountain Radio”,Marine nets in the Sth Pacific along with US military are almost non existent,with the strong Hash level.Has anyone experianced this problem,because it seems to be getting worse.I remember arround 10 years ago,most SW stations arround the world came in so clear.I also find now that english speaking stations have either faded or stopped transmitting,and in their place I notice Asian speaking stations are on the frequencies,aswell as takeing up alot of the SW bands more than befor.All comments wellcome thanks.
