Re: Unidentified tuning signals

Latest tuning signals:

92.0 MHz heard earlier in thr month with PI:E233 - iCatFM which is listed with a PI Code of 233
88.0 MHz - 20/06/2017 coming and going over a Spanish station - so I too am beginning to think "jammers" - and Algeria being received at the same time on nearby frequencies.

Re: 19 Jun 2017 Tunisia coming through now

At 1135UTC I found D201 MSAL???? in one of the scanning logs. Definitive Libya at last - previous reception has been ambiguous as to location.

Re: Monster Polish Signals!

Nick I have to agree it was/is an extremely wide spread opening(s). At 1815 UTC on 87.7 MHz I got Istanbul (2441 km) pop up suddenly only to be replaced by HRT HR1 (1325 km) one minute later - both stations with full RDS. IMO the Turkish reception would have been double hop. Earlier when I got to th...

Re: Indian Station

With this opening - anything is possible. Almost simultaneously at around 19:30 to 19:40 UTC - Spain (Chincillia), Latvia, Serbia. And the OIRT band is the most active I've ever seen. I rather hoping that the 'on the hour' recordings on this band will yield some double hop signals. I just need the o...

Band open in multiple directions

Since I checked at around 1645 UTC the OIRT band has been wide open. Band 2 open to Eastern Europe and also currently to Portugal and Sapin It's a good thing I've got multiple aerials and receivers - although I feel like I need to be like the ships pilot from the SF series Farscape :D Seriously - I ...

Re: Streetlight interference?

Update: Lovely sunny weather so all the solar lights will be running. Last night (14th) the interference was conspicuous by it's absence. Today I spotted the council had sneaked in and changed the local street lights to LEDs - then I noticed that the solar lights on the side of a near neighbour's ga...

Greek Sporadic E reception 2017

Is it me - or is the incidence of Greek reception unusually high this season? In 2015 I got a number of Greek stations on each of the following days 15 May, 9th June, 22 Jun, 8 July, 20 Aug. Single stations were logged on three other days. In 2016 I got some Greek stations on each of the following d...

Re: 88.40 Mhz unid Arabic or .... ?

Could be Kurdish? - if so TRT has a Kurdish language station on 88.4. It would be worth listening to the station's live stream at the same time in the day to see if it is comparable. You can get it via FMLIst.

Greece at Bottom of Bsnd

Just before 1225 BST / 1125 UTC Greece on 87.6 reaching RDS level. Worth keeping an eye on. (Edit as double converted the time!)

Re: Unidentified tuning signals

They are back again on 11th June 2017 ar around 1305 - 1315 UTC- and again appear to be associated with Tunisia - on 90.7 mixing with TUN Culture channel. On 93.4 there was no other signal present and the modulation was rwice and wide. Both signals were coming and going together and roughly at the s...

No - it's not TA reception. I'm just intrigued with what station it might be - as well as who would seriously listen to this (imo) drivel. https://app.box.com/s/noxak1dri2en6uqnjfie7fvhkgk9ipiz The only station actually listed as transmitting in english is one in Spain - but this is in the middle of...

Ts there no end to the SpE - I make this nine consecutive days with decent SpE down here in the south-east. In addition to what is probably Finland I've had Russia on R1 today.

Re: Unid from 04 June 2017

Hi again Nick, I found a pi code at the beginning of the 88.8MHz transmission - 42E4 which confirms it's origin. Very marginal and needed to repeat a short section in order for RDSSpy to yield the code. And at 0859 I got pi code 42E5 on 87.6. Whether 88.8 is Jerusalem or Safed is anyone's guess. It ...

Unid from 04 June 2017

May 30th has proved quite exciting with Israel, Lebanon and Syria identified. 4th June also gave Israel plus the following clips. The first appears to be Arabic (88.9 MHz), the second may be Hebrew (89.3 MHz) and I'm pretty sure the third one is the last of Radio Lev Hamedina on 91.0 MHz which gave ...

Re: UNID - 87.8MHz - Egypt?

Hi Nick, I included the talk station at the beginning - which I think came from the Balkans area - SRB, BIH, MKD were all logged on adjacent frequencies around the same time. There is no doubt in my mind that at 0:56 the id says "Souriana FM"! - how did I miss that? Just goes to show how important a...
