Listening Station Captures - A Few Whoopers!

Just a few tests initially, lossy MP3's i'm afraid but hope they will be well webloggable?

Some of our nocturnal Whooper captures over the Airedale (DB) and Whafedale (LW) Listening Stations.

Airedale - Whooper skein in the offing!.....



Airedale - Whooper contact calls!.....



Wharfedale - Whooper Skein overhead!



Now you have hopefully got your ear in? here's some of the more difficult edge of perception stuff.... nevertheless, I think you will agree that, yes, its there at a big multiplication of 5xmag...... all proved inaudible to the naked human ear.... The ambiance apparent in the two following Airedale clips is not Le Mann's but the quiet mid evening country atmosphere on a deeply silent, windless hazy night....

Airedale - a distant skein, taking c 2 mins to traverse.....



Wharfedale - another distant skein at many mags....



Airedale - finally the most difficult skein of the lot, that I could find, anyway....



Just some examples of how continuous audio stream capture run through automated analysis software can bring stuff in!!

Enjoy.....

Well done Dave etc... very interesting and good to listen to. No time for me at the moment to go down this route of recording but I have been following the dialog with interest.

Cheers Dave, and glad you approve. Certainly worth it after a long and very steep learning curve. Me too had little time with all this going on and still the same but if either you or Andy etc ever have more time and thinking of setting up a Calderdale Station dont hesitate to ask and will give best advice etc re equipment,methodology, location etc... things are often better in packs of three and the Wharfedale, Airedale and Calderdale Listening Stations would definately sound good!!
