- Nov 19, 2012Hi Tim.Didn't see your reply until now!Amateur radio is now legal in Thailand, but for Norwegian citizens there is no hope so far. Sweeden has an agreament with Thailand so you can get a Thai license, but so far NRRL, the Norwegian equivalent to ARRL, has done very litle in this field. I am, of course, allowed to use a receiver, and if I apply for membership in the Thai organization, I am allowed to use their club stations, but I think I'll pass.You must have been working in Thaland, since you lived close to Silom Road. My wife and I started to visit Thailand more than 25 years ago, and we love this country. We spend most of the winter time here, so we will not return to Norway until March 25.th.73Ulf

Good luck in China Town. I used to live just off Silom Road near the Dusit Hotel! Amateur Radio was illegal in Thailand at the time.

> I followed the advice about using PowerSDR-iq / PowerSDR (which must be installed first) and it looks like this was the solution. I have to hook up a better antenna, but at least I could tune in a Chinese station sending AM, but that was about it. My antenna was a 3 meter wire stretched out on my small balcony, which is surrounded with concrete, as you can see, not an ideal solution. I have to ask the management if I can find a better solution, but it will not be easy. I don't even have access to a proper grounding system. Any good ideas are welcome!
