    Works well - I did a little tuning around the dial.

      I like it. I listened to it for around two hours. I made some changes to the RDS in the FM database too. I need to find out more about how to do this.
      So today (2/10) I finished scanning the Miami band and updating the FM database. Miami area is now up to date. Thanks!
      Ivan--are there instructions on how to set up the radio for remote access and where can I find them? How hard was it?

        Hi I would like to know how to set up my TEF6686 radio and make it accessible online for me to DX on when I am not at home and for anyone to use to listen or DX on when I am not able to DX. Is there a step by step tutorial on how to do this. If they do have one it needs to be put up on the WTFDA forums as a sticky post. Lets get a network of TEF6686 Radios across the country up and going. Can this be done making remotely accessible on other SDR Tuners like the Airspy HF+ ?

          This is now done by a group of enthusiasts within a discord group and I am following their guidance. I will create a youtube video. The improvements are happening very fast and I am hoping this will soon be a user friendly process that can be done with a couple of clicks. check out the current map of active receivers here: https://list.fmdx.pl/ the receiver in Chole gets some very interesting trans equatorial signals from the Carribean

            Okay Thanks. I am a member of that Discord DX group and have been keeping up with the updates and discussions there. A YouTube how to video will be great to help everyone and get more DX tuners up and going on this DX server network here in the United States and Mexico. There are lots of DX tuners on line in parts of Europe.

              Bobby the server code changes daily and if i make a video today it will be outdated two days later. but i will try.

                I wouldn't mind a video myself. I'm in that Discord group but I don't know what channel that info is in. I haven't found any so far.
                It seems the Europeans are way ahead of us in all this SDR stuff. I wonder why.

                    This is something I'm going to try. I just ordered a usb soundcard.

                    Also, I posted this video on https://wtfda.org. It' very easy to find on the public main page.

                      FWIW, I have a few USB sound cards here which I'm not using.

                        Hi no2cw, Mike-CT, Russ-PA and antennanut, Thanks no2cw for the How To Video. Here is a weblink to How to Setup a Remote Accessible-Tef6686 Radio Using Linux. This how to guide will work with the Raspberry Pi too. https://github.com/NoobishSVK/fm-dx-...x-Installation

                          Moving my antenna by just a few inches changes the signals received especially the low power signals around the miami area and sometimes low power signals come in from 50 miles away. few local frequencies have three or four stations appearing depending on minor change in antenna position or direction - 95.3 96.1, 96.9, 100.3, 94.3, 94.5, 99.5, 102.1, 102,3. In the mornings you can hear something that I don't believe is playing by the rules - 92.7, 102.1 and 102.3 all broadcast the same online I&I Caribbean online radio from Jamaica. The receiver can tune 65.75 so every now and then I check to see if Cuba's analog TV channel 3 is coming in
