eSSB and SSB MP3 Station Recordings

MP3 Amateur Radio Hi-fi Recordings eSSB / SSB Off-Air Audio Montage


The purpose of this page is to demonstrate various station audio techniques in several SSB transmit passband widths, while providing a common and flat 6 kHz receiver standard for everyone! All stations represented below reflect what can be done with Single Side Band from minimum processing to complex, from simple audio rack setups to more elaborate. Plenty of variety here! There are many more stations producing fine audio than those listed below, but these are stations that I have had receiver access to, that sound better than the typical audio associated with SSB.

Listener Suggestions
It is highly recommend that you use good, flat response headphones plugged directly into your sound card output jack for the best fidelity. Some computer speaker systems will not have the sufficient fidelity to accurately reproduce many of the samples provided.

Recording Technique
All recordings were created using Cool Edit 2000 in a flat 6 kHz receiver bandwidth. The original .wav recordings were recorded mono at 16 bit, 48 or 44.1 kHz sampling, edited and normalized to 95%, then converted to standard MP3 format using a 6:1 compression ratio, 128 kbps at a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz.

Recording Criteria for the List
My recording criteria for standard SSB recordings was a reasonably well balanced, well processed sound of less than 3kHz of audio bandwidth. My criteria for eSSB recordings was an SSB transmit audio frequency response of at least 3 kHz or greater where higher fidelity is supported.
