Video blog episode 006

Forgot to put this up earlier, but Episode 006 of my Arizona Signal Watcher video blog is up.  This one is a brief “tour” of the RTL-SDR based receiver that I use for AM broadcast band DXing.  If you think you need to spend several hundred dollars to do well on the AM BCB, you might want to have a look.  A $20 RTL-SDR, plus a $45 upconverter, and maybe some amplification (depending on your antenna), and you may do as well as possible considering the crowding on the band and other issues.
