Re: Es 24/06/18

At last another Band I/OIRT opening. And OIRT has got better in the last few minutes. Can anyone identify a Ch R1 TV carrier with an offset of 49.74240? My measurement is probably out by around +40 to 45 Hz as I got other carriers on 49.750040 [St Petersburg] and 49.747440 [Moscow]. Then I also had ...

Re: Menorca

Pascal - if you can post a picture of the broken cable input box on the 9.2 someon on the forum might be able to suggest how to repair it.

This year it's strawberry jam

SpE seems to be a bit sparse in this part of the country. So time to ramble a bit. This is the year of the strawberry - they have gone absolutely mad. Four seasons ago I had one strawberry plant survive from a half-dozen bought from Homebase the previous year. It sent out a few runners and gave a fe...

Re: Little activity

Is tropo the only thing left from the summer?
There was no tropo, as such, from Mid November 2017 to early May 2018 - so who knows what we will get.

BTW - Finland doesn't seem to bad a spot for SpE either.

Swiss tropo - according to forecasts

According to both F5LEN and Hepburn I should be looking for tropo in the direction of Switzerland withing the next 12- 18 hours. Northern Spain might also be possible.

At the moment there is no sign of enhancement.

Re: Unid from 15 Jun 2018 - reposted

I copied "İlaç Gibi Radyo" into Google Translate and it comes out as "Drug-like Radio". Then I got Google to say it - in a female voice - and compared it to the deep male voice on the clip. I agree - 110% match. It is so much easier when you have something to compare it to. So another one from Istan...

John,
Istanbul would be a logical choice as I got a whole bunch on the I?Q file at that time.

Unid from 15 Jun 2018 opening

For a brief period around 1730 UTC I received a number of Turkish stations from Istanbul. Amongst the stations received was one on 92.0 MHz that identified itself as something like "Rushki Radio". I've attached the audio clip - the id is around 33 seconds in. There are other stations coming and goin...

Re: Best SDR free Software for R820T2 dongle

Hi Pascal, I am using SDR Sharp Build 1655 with an RTL dongle. I SDR# the best software overall because of the plug-ins available. I use a plug-in for the reception of analogue TV on Band I. But it doesn't matter what software you use - in a city with many nearby strong transmitters you will find th...

Re: ES North Africa

I'm listening to my recordings again, and have definitely identified Casablanca on a number of frequencies. :D Seriously though - what I've listened to so far from around 17:00 to 18:00 UTC has a load of Arabic stations coming and going. The are either mixing with other Arabic stations or with Spani...

Re: ES North Africa

Check your recordings from around that time and see if you had it too, good luck . I've just gone and deleted my recording around that time. I shall check the slightly earlier times which covered 89 - 98 MHz. By any chance was it a talk show with a male presenter speaking English with an Irish acce...

Re: ES North Africa

I don't have the time to do loads of live DXing, and I also can't concentrate on computer displays for too long before the neck starts aching. So I'm finding it necessary to auto-log a lot of the time. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it gives me a good idea of wht openings have occurred - it ...

Re: Es 09/06/18

I was going out as reception to the East opened up. Strong signals on the car radio from HRT-HR1 on 93.3, the only problem was as soon as it faded a bit the AF function went and found another signal with the same PI code - which happened to be BBC R1 (C201)! Loads of stations automatically logged vi...

Or just choose "Standard OSM" in the "Map-Style" drop-down menu, right under the map. Doh!! :oops: I need a 're-boot the day' option. :D Now that I have finally looked properly - once the choice is made it is saved.

Re: Tropo > Denmark

Yes - we could do with a blank SpE day tomorrow. Tropo here is well down at the moment, but if the forecast is accurate things should build up over the next 12 hours or so as the weather moves southwards.

Re: Es Mon 4th June 2018

It has gone totally mental this evening - the Spanish/south opening faded out and was suddenly replaced by stuff from the East. I've done relatively little live logging - so my work will be cut out with the recordings. Highlights were St Petersburg on 89.7 at 1727 UTC. During this period until now B...
