As I had some problems with an antenna on 160m and my signal was not good even in EU > I had to find where is the problem. To be sure that my signal is going overseas I used remotely controlled receiver's network which You can find there DX Tunners
To celebrate 10 years of the launch of they are opening the network to everyone on a free to air basis, which means you can access all the online receivers and enjoy the excitement of remotely controlled radio from around the world.
This is for an extended time, and a great opportunity to meet new friends and enjoy interesting radio from around the world.
Well, You will have to registering first but its not the long time procedure and that You can do what You want. I was mentioned about that just few weeks ago by my friend and after first test it sounds like good opportunity to testing antennas, propagation or opennings band to DX areas etc.
The great one is DX Rommele, SE where You can use:
Icom R75 receiver with a switchable array of 7 EWE antennas in all directions. Located in a rural district of southern Sweden. Exceptional noise free reception of the 160 meter bands for the CW mode. Unfortunatelly there are not narrow filters optionally, but You can switch and manage all EWE's antennas to any directions over the world.
Antenna 45*......Far East(Japan)
Antenna 90*......Australia / Asia
Antenna 135*...Middle East
Antenna 180*...East/mid Africa
Antenna 225*...West Africa/Brazil
Antenna 270*...South America
Antenna 315*... Iceland/Greenland/US(Great Lakes)
This is a shortwave antenna farm at Rommele, Sweden. They have erected an amazing 7 separate EWE antennas pointed in 7 different directions on the globe. With these antennas you will be able to listen to a station and minimize interferences from other stations on the same frequency which are in other parts of the world. The antenna headings are marked in red on this great circle map.
Please respect other users on the radios. Always ask in the chat before you start tuning!
So, let's try to check if Your QRG is free by checking remotely from quiet location... i.e.
