Southgate ARC – One of the often repeated attributes oof noise and antennas is that man-made noise is vertically polarised and that is why a vertical antenna sounds noisier than a horizontal dipole. Itâ€s an interesting thing to say, but it it true?
Southgate ARC – In the news this week, the FCC appearss to ban the operation by amateurs of all unlicensed radios that are capable of being used outside amateur bands, closer to home we have an update from the Ham Feast, the Platinum VKFF Hunter Award, an update on the Golden Globe Yacht Race where radio amateurs are providing weather and net control services to sailors traversing the globe
NEWS UPDATE from FP/DK7LX & FP/F5TJP – We aree back on St. Pierre Island since two days ago and will get on air from here occasionally until the 30th of September. We have purchased a bunch of most beautiful local stamps which will be going out with the first batch of direct QSLs as a souvenir. […]
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Ed, who writes:
Whilst watching the 1998 movie The Interview on Netflix, I spotted a Kriesler Radio Company Super-Power Long Range Panoramic 11-71 made in Newtown (Sydney) Australia about
1:11 into the movie (the opening scene.)
Iâ€d never heard of the Kriesler Radio Company before, probably because they were in Australia. The Super-Power Long Range Panoramic 11-71 was made in the late 50â€s is beautiful, and it has interesting bandspread markings.
I agree, Ed! The bandspread/dial on the Kriesler is beautiful. I was not at all familiar with this Australian radio–thank you for sharing!<

New York, NY — The AES Educational Foundationn is proud to name Christian Steinmetz as the first Mary Lea Simpson Memorial Scholarship winner. Steinmetz is completing a dual major BS in Electrical Engineering and BA in Audio Technology at Clemson University. Steinmetz is Chief Engineer at the Clemson radio station, WSBF-FM, and producer for WSBF Live Sessions. He served an internship with Cirrus Logic, designer of DSP integrated circuits. He also works as a researcher, pursuing work related to audio signal processing and machine learning for music production.
Steinmetz recently won first place at the IEEE SoutheastCon Student Paper Competition for his paper â€œReal-time phase analysis utility for improving microphone placement in multi-microphone multi-source scenariosâ€ and competed in the Saul Walker Student Design Competition at the 2017 AES New York Convention. He is an accomplished musician whose goal is to design intelligent signal processing tools, and his submitted recording was highly regarded by the Mary Lea Simpson Scholarship Committee. Steinmetz intends to continue his work as mix and mastering engineer after completion of graduate studies in audio.
Mary Lea Simpson was a graduate of the Audio Production Program at New England Institute of Art, who died in 2013 in a tragic building collapse in Philadelphia. Mary received the Naked Ear Records Achievement Award for Best Music Production in 2012.
The Mary Lea Simpson Memorial Scholarship is for full tuition for final year of undergraduate studies at a North American college or university Audio Engineering/Recording Arts Program. It is being offered to a student member of AES who shows a proficiency in recording, mixing or mastering skills, as well as academic achievement.
This scholarship is endowed by Maryâ€s family, father and mother Dr. Zachary W. Simpson and Starr Harris Simpson, and brother George B. Simpson, and is administered by the Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation (Don Puluse, President). Barry Marshall is Chair of the Foundationâ€s Mary Lea Simpson Scholarship Committee. This scholarship complements the Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundationâ€s mission to encourage entry of talented students into the profession of audio engineering. Since its establishment in 1984, the Foundation has awarded over one million dollars in grants to hundreds of exceptional applicants, worldwide, for graduate studies in audio.
