Audio recording in ham radio

My general practice is to record all activity on HF bands realtime. I use a very simple recorder program, named 'Mrecorder' that opens a DOS window although it works under Windows. In every hour it closes the old and opens a new file named yymmdd_hhmmss.waw so the realtime rercording is ensured. The waw files will be placed to the directory where the Mrecorder.exe is. The file lenght is only about 5 MB/1 hour. That means about 120 MB in a round-the-clock run. To stop recording you have to push 'Ctrl+c' combination when the DOS window is on the screen (never close it with mouse!). There is a stereo version of the program called 'Srecorder' (not tested by me) that can be used in case of 2Radio operation. The files can be played by Winamp (a plugin may be needed) and XMPlay without any additional plugin.

To edit or convert files Audacity works fine as well as some audio converters do the job. All clips, except from media, on this page were recorded by me, if not, I refer to the source.

I must have edited some QSO clips for the completion of that particular QSO took a longer time and/or some DX or special event stations forgot to send their call sign out too frequently. Of course all realtime recordings are available.

Remarks: Some of clips are in Ogg Vorbis format. It is very similar to MP3 and can be played with a good number of players just like Winamp, XMPlay and many others. The file format is "name.ogg".
