Re: 2x UNIDs from 2 of July (Holland? Flanders?)

Amazing you like Spinvis. His lyrics are quite clever and his voice is very typical. He is very popular overhere, someone I know played in his band and a friend of mine is his recordcompany-boss. Nice to read it ;) I am a very curious music listener; I like to take advantage of the opprtunities tha...

Re: 2x UNIDs from 2 of July (Holland? Flanders?)

btw... are you sure non of those two was in "Letzebuergisch" or "Elsaessisch" dialect? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxembourgian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alsatian_dialect Rumantsch and Schwyzerduetsch can be sort out due to the distance which is too close.

Re: Why so little ESkip?

I was ready for a new lamentation about the poorness of Es openings into the second half of July, but I had to change my idea. Because, generally speaking (and taking account of the logs into Fmlist from 17th to 31st of July), it seems that this period has been good. 2019: 14465 logs 2018: 16577 201...

Re: 2x UNIDs from 2 of July (Holland? Flanders?)

Many many thanks, Julius, but I have taken a listen to the songs you've suggested and none of them matches with the things I've listened to. This UNID will remain unsolved :( But, as we say in Italy, "nessun male vien per nuocere" because after having searched in a database some news about Xander de...

Re: Es Band 2 28th July

hmmm isn`t there any confusion between the audience regarding similarities in music and style between "Radio DEEJAY - ONE NATION - ONE STATION" and "Radio m2o - DEEJAY STATION" ?? I guess the guy coming from DEEJAY (same compony) will bring lots of spirit and ideas from his old stations to the new ...

Hello, Do you still need help? As I have access to the playlist of Omroep brabant on 87,6. I do need to know exact time and data you listened! Julius Hello Julius, many thanks. it was the 2nd of July and it was (around) 20:28 CET. But unfortunately I was listening in a very complicated situation (I...

off / topic: The only stations I am able to hear for more than a few minutes are m2o (now with different programming called DEEJAY STATION) Please note that DEEJAY STATION is only the motto used by m2o for the whole of his broadcasting, since last April; it's used to testify the affinity between m2...

Re: DX records

But what is the limit in distance for tropo receptions?

I've seen that one (http://www.fmlist.org/fm_logmap.php?dat ... 5&band=ALL) and I wonder if Gerard Noorduff has make some mistakes in logging or if in very special conditions it's really possible to receive up to 3000 Kms.

Re: Italian music on 95.7

As per title, I've heard some current Italian hit music on 95.7, at around 3:53 GMT, during an opening to Germany (and Netherlands shortly after). It's not VRT Radio 1, not RADIONL nor Continu, nor any of the western, public German broadcasters. Who'd be playing such a tune? https://youtu.be/xgnPeR...

Re: DX records

Here are mine. Longest path through tropo: 1204 kms , July 20th 2017, with a Sangean ATS-909 from Quercianella (on the Tyrrenian Coast, 10 kms south from Livorno/Leghorn) to Tripoli/Tarabulus in Lybia (Al Watanya on 96.6 and a plenty of "tentative" receptions*). I also have a video of those dxs, but...

Re: Bird song on 89.0 Mhz

Concerning RAI, the machine pretending the sound of a bird, has been built in 1936 and is now owned by the Museum of Radio and Television in Turin. But, as you can read at the next link (I hope that Google Translate give you a good version from Italian to your language), the following reproductions ...

Re: Why so little ESkip?

Is this all? Logs into Fmlist (1st to 16th of July) 2019: 11801 2018: 12713 2017: 6525 2016: 14020 2015: 16688 July 2019 seems not too bad, if compared to July 2018, but in my opinion the best openings has been concentrated into Northern and Eastern Europe while, here in the South, we had only weak...

Re: Bird song on 89.0 Mhz

I suspect Mte.Bonifato. Or can`t this be Mte.Argentario with GR 1 Lazio?? :? Alto Adige is low power and too close. En fact, at 0:26 I can hear something like "Rai per la Sicilia". And, anyway, 89.0 from Monte Argentario is broadcasted in direction to East and South East, so the reception in UK wou...

Re: Bird song on 89.0 Mhz

Either Sicily or Alto Adige. @Franco le trasmissioni speciali le hanno soltanto le regioni a statuto speciale, giusto? Yes, it's so: only "special status" regions have always had daily broadcasts in addition to the regional broadcast that all regions have. I'm sure that Sicily and Trentino Alto Adi...
