... You already see people using remote SDRs for low band RX.
...

AD9DX: I'd be interested in seeing what exactly is available for remote lowband RX.  Any websites or references?

thanks, 73, Rich K3VAT

Rich, I don't know the site. But I know a local ham that used it to hear whether his signal was "getting out".

I ran across a very detailed list of SDRs all over the world sometime ago that you could access and listen to their signals. I did not keep the link, but the info is out there.

Reversebeacon.net is very very useful. Me and several locals use it all the time in 160M season not just to know if the band is open to EU, but also to do some relative-signal-level testing among ourselves. But not quite a "remote lowband RX" in the broader sense of being useful for copying the DX.

Taking remote-operated DX to its limit of absurdity, I suppose you could relay through a drone that's towing an antenna at 35000 feet, just inside the 200-mile limit at the point in the US that's closest to the DX. If you've got the megabucks for that sort of thing.

Wouldn't count. Aeronautical mobile is not valid for DXCC (nor is maritime mobile). Operations must be on terra-firma.
