I have a Panasonic RF-45B which is cabable of tuning in side bands.
My Macintosh is a Powerbook 165C.
First with the Mac, I had trouble at first getting the program to
load. Rad-Fax wants 3 mB of memory. I restarted my Mac and turned
the extensions (Inits) off and got the few more bytes I needed.
I thought I might need to rig some sort of connector to get
the audio from the radio to the Mac. The Rad-Fax program used
the built-in microphone on the Mac. So I was set to recieve.
I tuned into 3355, close to 3357, one of the recommended frequencies
on the list. As also recommended, I listened for the "Squeaky
Wheel." At first I just saw a lot of noise. As I played more with
fine tuning, soon I was getting something that looked like a map.
My best capture for the night was a map of the East Coast of the
My capture was not the highest quality. But after all I was just
using a portable reciever and relying of the computer's internal
microphone. Rad-Fax is certainly worth taking a look at!
