    Customer Praise for WorldStation™

    Here is What Dxtra Customers are Saying About Our WorldStation™ 4.2 Software:

    "By the way your work is great.
    I received WS 4.0 for the RX-320D, installed, slightly modified the
    config file and up comes the user interface. Works great.

    The refinement and added gadgets, e.g. NOAA Geophysical Alerts and
    etc, make the program worth a lot more than $29.95! The operation of the
    radio from the new GUI is absolutely smooth. Can't beat it, and I have
    used five programs since 1999 with this radio. If you haven't tried it,
    WS 4.0, you should!"


    Mike Stribling / Texas

     


    "I was able to download the ILG shortwave database & it integrated into the DXtra
    software in a click!

    My hat's off to Bob/DXtra, NICE JOB of integration. The WS 4.0 software/ILG
    Database / RX340 work as one. I will have to spend more time to utilize all the
    goodies. The Frequency look-up tables work like a charm.

    Again, Thank You DXtra."

    Sid Leben KC2EE


    "I gotta agree with you, Sid...WorldStation is First Class all the way, thanks
    to Bob's dedication and knowledge...!

    What a role model for developers!"

    "Having read some of the other postings, I'd like to relate my own Worldstation experience.
     
    I travel regularly in my job, and I often enjoy tuning around the shortwave bands to pass my spare time when I'm alone and away from home.  I carry a small portable shortwave receiver with me, but with its small antenna and the usual far-from-optimum SWL locations, as hotels are, its performance is usually not even modestly satisfying.
     
    Since most of the hotels I use when I'm on the road normally provide broadband internet access, I decided to explore obtaining a software-defined radio and porting it out from my home as an internet service for my personal use.  After doing some checking around, I ran across Bob's DXTRA website and this Yahoo group.  To me, the RX-320D and DXTRA WS 4.0 software seemed just the ticket.  I purchased the radio and software package from DXTRA and received both shortly thereafter.  After a few calls to Bob to answer some of my questions and to work out the wrinkles in my particular setup, my software-defined radio personal internet service is performing nicely.  My RX-320D is connected to a fan dipole, 133 feet long, up 35 feet and fed with 450 Ohm window line;  accessing it remotely is greatly more effective than using the portable receiver and its 3 foot whip antenna from the inside of a hotel.
     
    By running the DXTRA WS service software on the radio-connected PC at home, I can access it using the client software on my notebook PC either via LAN at home or via internet when travelling.  I maintain a second residence at a North Carolina beach with broadband access there, too.  When I'm vacationing there, I can easily connect to my RX-320D via the Worldstation software, which works out well on those quiet nights when there's not much going on, or when it's raining at the beach (I'm visiting there this weekend, and have been using Worldstation to listen to the ACC games).
     
    Thanks, Bob, for creating an easy-to-implement client/server software interface for the RX-320D and other PC-compatible rigs.  Your efforts have turned my gee-whiz idea into a reality!"
     
    Sincerely,

    DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) Digital Shortwave Support Now Built-Into in the RX-320D!

    If you are not already familiar with DRM - it is a new ITU standard for the transmission of digital shortwave broadcasts. The RX-320D is the first DRM software "off the shelf" compatible receiver on the market.

    By simply connecting the DRM output signal from the RX-320D to the "microphone" or "line-in" jack of your PC sound card, and using using the DRM software, your PC can decode the DRM transmissions. The DRM decoding software is available at http://www.drmrx.org/. The audio decoding of the software is automatic via your sound card and has nothing to do with WorldStationTM 4.1 to avoid any confusion.

    DRM, www.drm.org is the leading ITU standard for the digital transmission of radio signals in the shortwave bands.

    Ten-Tec Receivers are made in the USA

    The Ten-Tec lineup of the RX-320D, RX- 340 and RX-350D high-performance tabletop radios are made in the USA and are fully PC controllable. The shortwave bands are packed with hundreds of uncensored English language broadcasts each day. Turbo-charge your shortwave listening with the finest radios and software from Dxtra! Please call us toll-free at 1-866-398-7297 with any questions. For your convenience, you can order 24/7 from our on-line secure store.

    PC controlled radio is the hottest trend in shortwave listening. If you are considering purchasing a new shortwave radio insist on full PC control and DRM to "future proof" your investment. Why settle for a procey portable or "portatop" (e.g. Grundig 800) receiver with no PC control capability? 

    Our RX-320D Package Is a Great Way To Get Started In Shortwave Listening

    As a Ten-Tec VAR (Value Added Reseller) we offer a complete shortwave package which includes our software and the American made Ten-Tec RX-320D for only $415.95 (FREE Ground Shipping). See the pictures above. All you need is a PC with a free serial port. WorldStation™ runs on all Windows operating systems, including XP. Order at any time from our Store.
