App to alert favourable DX conditions.

I use to have an app, EsSense, on my smartphone that would alert me when, for example an E-skip, is open. I was able to select country and what band opening I want to be alerted by. Now this app doesn't work anymore and I can't find an update of it. Does someone know an similar app that does the sam...

Re: Some e-Skip UNID clips

The second one I am pretty sure it to be danish. I lived in Danmark for a while and did understand some of it. Nothing to ID it.
So it is either PR3 or Radio 100.

Perhaps you can approach a local dealer and ask if they can order it for you.

UNID 1640

Yesterday night I received very briefly a station on 1640. This was around midnight CET. I couldn't make out the language the person spoke, although I had the feeling it was not english, and shortly after the person finished talking and there was pop music. 15 sec later the signal was gone and never...

I hear something similar too. I have been listening to it over and over again but never could I make out New Orleans.

Re: Help requested to ID station at 1690

Thanks John and Simbeav, and I indeed meant Thursday. That's a distance of 6,214 km. I quite pleased with that. I always thought it to be impossible for such a radio without the use of some sort of external antenna. I have tried several times to get a signal from NA but sort of gave up because I alw...

Help requested to ID station at 1690

I hope that someone can help me in trying to ID a station that was most likely from North America. Wednesday morning at 06.30, CET, I received a station on 1690. The signal faded a lot and was barely audible to listen to. I could hear music, all oldies, and one song was from Petula Clark singing Dow...

Re: dutch LPAM - hoch much more can we take?

Add this one to the list of filling the AM band.

To answer your question, No, they will not stop.
A lot of these stations are being manned by former pirate dj's.
It is their only way to air a legitimate radio station.
