Re: UNID language 88.9 16th July 1623 UTC

I wonder if it is a dialect from the Bulgarian or Romanian language.

Re: Has this been a very very good E season?

Although I have very limited time for my DX hobby, I can concur with Paul's finding.
The E openings that I was able to catch have resulted in some new firsts receptions, e.g. Albania.

Re: unid Italy

The only thing I can ID is the music that is played starting @4.08. It is one of the two main theme's from the western movie "A Fistful of Dollars", composed by Ennio Morricone. However, the piece played is not from the orginally soundtrack.

Re: Ten more BBC MW Transmitters to close

You WILL still be able to get Radio Wales on 882, because Washford (100 kw) is not closing, only the 25 kw Penmon transmittter. It is likelyy Washford that you are receiving. From what I understand from the BBC site, Radio Wales will have reduced coverage. This is what it says on their site: "...

Re: Ten more BBC MW Transmitters to close

Full article at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/reception/work-warning/news/mw-closures-2021 The article says that Radio Gloucestershire and Radio Wales will have reduced coverage, so I am wondering if these last two are not actually closing. This is not just 10 stations, but 17 frequencies! Those transmitt...

Audio of Mamma Mia movie on 88.4

I am getting the audio sound of the movie Mamma Mia on 88.4.
I can't identify the station and have tried many live streams from various countries to ID it.
Anybody else who receive this?
Antenna is point NW.
Possibly a pirate?

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...
