PMSDR/Winrad and E-MU 0202USB Audio Interface

With my old Audigy-2 soundcard only 96 Khz wide band recording was possible.
I used this Creative PCI card for more than a year to my fully satisfaction,
but to use the maximum span in WRplus or WinradHD a 196 Khz soundcard was needed.
My choice was a Creative E-MU 0202 usb soundcard.
This is a 24-bit/192 khz recording and playback audio interface
so wide band recording up to 192 khz is now possible.
I am very satisfied with this E-Mu soundcard which sounds great
especially with use of the E-MU Asio drivers.

Inputs for right and left mono 6.3 Jacks - do not use the stereo input.

Our PMSDR group member Michiel made me this audio cable:
1 pc 3.5 stereo Jack plug and 2 mono 6.3 Jack`s and 1 meter of good
quality audio cable (double audio cable which you can split).

TA-DX montage 6 and 7 December 2010

TA conditions were fair on mediumwave last monday- and tuesdaymorning.
It gave me a change to log another 4 personal firsts.
It isn't hi-fi quality but I don't care as long as I can
hear an ID on it.
