Bored and in random internet surfing I stumbled across this.  I have no idea what I am doing with the controls...but it's fun.

It's a software defined radio.
Fun stuff. You can easily search a wide band of radio spectrum for signals.
Very fun to play with.

That one is set up in the Netherlands. You can hear stuff in Europe a lot better and pick up local radio stations on the VLF band. Thats below the AM band. 530 khz and below.

SDR = Software Defined Radio.  Basically, a wideband receiver that uses a computer to do all the magical digital filtering to pick audio out of the noise.  They're neat.  You can use a euro-spec USB TV receiver with some alternate software as a wideband radio receiver.  You can add a transverter to change the frequency range you're listening to.

I've used it and listened to numbers stations before, as well as BBC Africa and a few other stations out in the middle of nowhere.

Same with voice of America on stations in shithole countries and a few underground radio stations

I am sure that is a perfectly valid answer, still have no idea what any of it means but I think I get the gist.  Thank you.  There is some weird fucking noises on some of these frequencies.

Think of it as a short wave radio that is controlled by a computer instead of a front panel with knobs and buttons.
