Re: Pirate on 87.9 in Sussex ?

I couldn't pick up anything - maybe it was a local signal?

Well, considering you had Eins Live on 104.7 from Nordhelle, I'm going to take a guess that your 103.8 was WDR 4 from the same site. What were they playing?
Unfortunately I can't remember off the top of my head but it wasn't anything unusual.

Re: A bit of tropo 08/10/18

The 8th was a good evening for German DX as I picked up a good few WDR stations including 88.8 and 104.7. I also got one on 103.8 but didn't manage to get an ID for it.

Re: Tropo From The Netherlands

I didn't do any late night scanning but earlier on in the evening I was getting some good results from Belgium including Nostalgie on 98.2 wiping out Radio 1 and the same station again on 101.0. Quite a few of the stations from Egem were up to RDS levels with plenty of French and Dutch stations betw...

Re: Es 09/06/18

Had a few of these come through such as Radio Italia on 87.5 and RAI Radio 1 on 87.6 with RDS. I also managed to pick up Radio Camaldoli Stereo on 87.9 with RDS, which enabled me to pinpoint the location unlike most Italian stations I usually get :D The same station was heard on 88.6 coming from Vic...

Re: Guess the RDS

Excellent - thanks for the info I'll keep this in mind. It ties in with the other Romanian stations I caught at the time. It looks like it was quite a distance away :D

Guess the RDS

Here's of the stations I picked up on Monday but unfortunately I only got a picture not a video and it's a shame these radios don't give PI codes. Does anyone know what the rds should resemble? It's really bugging me and I can't find anything online yet. The RDS is missing a character so should disp...

Monday was a crazy night as the reception was so strong. I picked up Digi FM on 104.8 and Rractual on 101.1 with RDS. Another strong one was Fun Radio 87.7 from Slovakia complete with full radiotext. I did pick up a few Polish stations with some Polish dancy/pop being heard on 88.0 but the signal wa...

I picked up a few German stationa last night via tropo. None were strong enough for RDS but I managed to ID WDR5 from Bielefield on 88.8 (574km) and again on 90.6 from Beilstein (663km). It was the 1st time I was positively able to ID a German station. There was a few more dotted around the band but...

Hi, My names Max and I live in Bexhill, East Sussex. I've been looking at the forums for a while now and thought it was time to sign up. My current set up is a Sony XDR-S10HDip with a 3 element horizontal beam in the loft facing east. I did have a 5 element beam but it took up a lot of space and it ...
