World radio

The most significant event of the last century was the global conflict referred to as the Second World War. Nearly every nation on Earth participated in or was affected by WWII. Although the Mass Media of the time seems primitive by the modern standards of the Internet and 24-hour Cable News Coverage, old time WWII radio shows brought the war home to the American people in a way that had never been imagined before this time. Modern Cable TV coverage of significant events is notable for the saturation of coverage as events unfold. This was true with early Radio coverage. To experience coverage of significant battles and events of WWII listen to: The News and Rumors of War The rise of the Nazi Party in Germany was followed by the American Press and those with an interest in European Affairs. Throughout the 1930s, in spite of the Great Depression, electricity, and with it radio, was coming into most American homes. CBS sent Edward R.

“Here, there and everywhere, the stamping foot of the boogie piano player sets the tempo for nimble feet that dance the jitterbug,” Pete Smith, the narrator for the 1944 short film “Groovie Movie,” chimes. Swing and Big Band helped to define a culture and an era when great nations clashed on the battlefield in all corners of the globe. The music and dance of the late 30’s and early 40’s gave men and women an opportunity to forget the bleak woes of war and come together to mingle and “cut a rug” to the tunes of the time’s jazz greats. The Rise of Swing and Big Band Big Band grew out of the jazz music of the 1920’s and consisted of a mix of improvised and written sets. By the early 30’s, Swing became it’s own style played by bands that were led by artists such as Duke Ellington, Jimmy Lunceford and Cab Calloway. By 1935, roughly two-thirds of American households owned a radio. But Swing didn’t stop with the music — swing dancing grew alongside it.

One of this year's recipients of a National Humanities Medal is a member of the extended NPR family. So it is with very unobjective pride that we welcome the host and producer of FRESH AIR, Terry Gross. Terry, welcome to the program. TERRY GROSS, BYLINE: Thank you, Robert. SIEGEL: And congratulations. GROSS: And thank you for that. SIEGEL: I should say in the interest of full disclosure here that in a past life, I was part of NPR management and a very strong supporter of the network distributing FRESH AIR, which in those days was a local program on WHYY in Philadelphia. GROSS: We would not have become a national show without you. SIEGEL: I'm not sure it's true, but I'll take it. GROSS: (Laughter) That is where I started (laughter). SIEGEL: What was the program like? GROSS: It - OK, it was called Woman Power. The first show I did was on women blues singers. SIEGEL: And now is this in Buffalo? GROSS: Yes. SIEGEL: How did you research the history of women's undergarments by the way? GROSS: No. 2016/09 [NPR] 'Fresh Air' Host Terry Gross Awarded National Humanities Medal 2016/09 [NPR] 'Fresh Air' Host Terry Gross Awarded National Humanities Medal
Joshua Johnson, host of “1A” on WAMU, speaks during a morning staff meeting. (Hector Emanuel/For The Washington Post) At a recent reception at WAMU, a couple dozen of the Washington public radio sta tion’s most active community supporters gathered to meet the man succeeding a legend. Many were fans of Diane Rehm yet open to change — theoretically. Joshua Johnson, freshly anointed to inherit Rehm’s microphone, sensed they needed a pep talk. He stood before the room without notes and took everyone back to first principles. In just a few minutes his voice reached a crescendo, a bravura re-consecration of journalism in these times as “advanced citizenship.” “There is still something to grow,” he said. After the applause, the energy in the room rose. On the margin of the crowd, WAMU brass murmured to one another about just how perfect the new talk show host was turning out to be. Johnson prepares to go on the air.

Diane Rehm’s station taps Joshua Johnson, a lesser-known radio host, as her successor Diane Rehm’s station taps Joshua Johnson, a lesser-known radio host, as her successor Radio journalist Joshua Johnson will succeed Diane Rehm as the host of the daily public-affairs discussion program that Rehm turned into one of NPR’s most durable franchises over its 37-year run. Rehm introduced Johnson during her broadcast Wednesday morning from WAMU-FM, the Washington public station that has produced her program since 1979. Johnson will host a new program, called “1A,” that will have roughly the same format as “The Diane Rehm Show” — interviews, panel discussions and listener phone calls about politics, government, science, the arts and other topics spread over a two-hour block. The appointment, by WAMU’s managers and with Rehm’s support, instantly makes Johnson, 36, one of the most prominent figures in public radio. “I’m humbled, grateful and excited, but mostly humbled,” Johnson said in an interview this week. Johnson, an anchor and host at public radio and TV station KQED in San Francisco, was something of a surprise choice. WAMU General Manager J.J.

Weltempfänger: Tipps, Anleitung & Einstellungen zum weltweiten Radiohören Weltempfänger: Tipps, Anleitung & Einstellungen zum weltweiten Radiohören Ausdehnung der Rundfunkwellen in den Frequenzbereichen: Die Kurzwellen (rot) werden an der Ionosphäre reflektiert und breiten sich rund um die Erde aus. Lang- und Mittelwellen (grün) verlaufen nahe der Erdoberfläche und sind bis zu 2.000 Kilometer übertragbar. Ultra-Kurzwellen (gelb) haben dagegen nur eine Reichweite von maximal 150 Kilometer um einen Sendemast herum. Radiosendungen werden mittels elektromagnetischer Wellen auf bestimmten Frequenzen übertragen. Und so funktioniert’sDie KW-Signale reichen hoch bis in die Erdatmosphäre und werden dort in der sogenannten Ionosphäre reflektiert. Dabei schwankt die Übertragungsqualität: Die Sonne ändert die Reflexionseigenschaften der Ionosphäre, sodass der Empfang von Kurzwellensendern je nach Tages- und Jahreszeit besser oder schlechter ist. Neben den UKW- und KW-Sendern gibt es die Radio-Programme im Mittel- und Langwellenbereich (MW und LW). Wie finde ich den gewünschten Radiosender?
Poor Man's Radio Telescope A way to peer into the radiosky using little more then junk found on the side of the road. Remembering back to my 10th birthday. I recall receiving a book on outer space. I believe it was published by National Geographic. This was by far my most prized book in my somewhat limited collection of the time. In it there was a rough outline of a radio telescope. Indeed years have past, careers, children, and everyday life was by far the most important of responsibilities. The mount was in pretty bad shape. None the less I slapped it all together.
How to Convert a Satellite Dish Into a Radio Telescope - MIT Technology Review If you find yourself with an old 30 meter satellite communication antenna, what should you do with it? One option is to convert it into a radio telescope, which is exactly what astronomers at the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand have done with an old dish lying around in the northernmost reaches of the country. So what exactly do you have to do to convert a communications antenna into a radio telescope? Today, Lewis Woodburn at the Auckland University of Technology and a few pals, answer this question by detailing the process they have gone through to make the conversion. The old satellite communications dish in question was built in 1984 for the New Zealand Post Office and transferred to Telecom New Zealand in 1987. What they inherited was a far cry from a state-of-the-art radio telescope. So the team’s first task was to clean the dish service and replace rusty bolts and equipment. Next, the team looked at the dish’s control system.
The "Itty Bitty Telescope" was fashioned after the Little Bitty Telescope described at This website also provides some experiments that can be performed on the "Little Bitty Telescope." Equipment Needed: 1 - DirectTV 18-inch satellite dish with LNB and mounts1 - Channel Master 1004IF Materials Needed: From builder supply store: 30" x 30" 3/4" composite board or similar material for baselazy Susan8 -1 1/4" sheet metal or wood screwswood glue or Elmer's glueTeflon or nylon washerselectrical tapecompass From Radio Shack Terminating resistors, number is dependent on number of LNB on the satellite system. Making the Base for the Itty Bitty Telescope The satellite dish should come with a mounting bracket used to attach the dish to a house. Cut the composite board to 30" by 30".Attach the bottom of the Lazy Suzanne to the center of the composite board. Attach the top of the Lazy Susan to the base of the Lazy Susan. Paint or stain the base if desired. procedure
