DX Tuners back as “GlobalTuners”

Many of you are familiar with the web receiver concept, in which someone puts a radio receiver on the Internet for remote control from anywhere in the world.

The most popular “network” of web receivers was DX Tuners. Payment of a subscription fee was required for full access. The owner of the network shut it down to concentrate on new projects.

The software that was used for DX Tuners has been re-used in a network called GlobalTuners
Registration is required, but there is no charge to use the receivers. On the site you will see a list of receivers all over the world. Different types of equipment can be used, and different antennas. So, some of the receivers perform better than others.

The most important thing to remember is: if there are other people using a receiver when you log onto it, be sure to ask permission before tuning to another frequency or changing any of the settings.

My friend DK1NY (known as “Norave” on the Internet) operates one of the better GlobalTuners near Hannover, Germany. I can be found there a lot. Be sure to say “hi” if you see me.
