About this recording

This recording was captured from the VHF side of W0ILO, Moorhead, during the RRRA On-Air Club Meeting on May 19, 2020, with an Alinco DJ-G7 Handheld Transceiver and the Audacity audio editor and recorder.

Prior to publication the recording was:

  • Processed with the Audacity “Pop-Mute” plug-in to reduce the magnitude of the squelch artifacts present at the beginning and end of each transmission

  • Edited to to present just the check-ins—from squelch opening to closing—in the sequence they occured with a 1 second gap between check-ins

  • The NCS Operator’s opening announcment was truncated

No level adjustments were made to the received signal during the editing process.
