Re: Random thoughts

Well done John. A lot more than I managed.

They seem to have a transmitter on virtually every frequency. Imaging being a DXer there trying to get anything exotic through all of that !

16th November - Mexico Morning.

Not a lot around here until just after 0700 when some US stations strengthened and a few Mexicans came up (1570, 1470 and 1380 being strongest).

I also go this on 1590 - Does anybody recognise it ?

Re: Random thoughts

I'm not sure what they are relayng at the time. It could be that as it is midnight in Iran there could be common programmmes. I'm sure I heard at least 2 different announcements across the frequencies.

Random thoughts

Whilst looking for "anything" of interest last night, I spotted that the Iran transmitters all seem to transmit the 3 note bong, and announcement and an anthem at 20:30. It makes them easy to spot. With just a quick scan I heard it on 684, 702, 711, 1017, 1026, 1062, 1188 (no anthem) and 1314. Anoth...

Re: China - 1098

For me, at least, nothing much else turned up, so it must have just been a case of strong transmissions on a clear frequency and TA ........... less said the better.

China - 1098

China and / or Taiwan booming in here before 15:30. Chinese sounding talk and mx with another station mixing. Seeing as I find far east DX difficult to say the least, other signals may be coming in for those in more favourable locations.

Re: 09/11/2017

I had WLAC on 1510 at 0700 "This is newstalk 1510 WLAC" . It case up just before 7 and got quite strong until fading into the noise about 0725.
KXEL was strong on 1540 about the same time, but not a lot else. I had two periods of signal activity 0700 - 0725 and a brief one around 0510

09/11/2017

Nice enhancement from about 6:30 to 07:00 this morning, but nothing new found yet. Some of the less frequent ones for me made it here like 1160 WVNJ and 1530 WCKY both around 0700. Some of the usuals were booming in, above 1600 was full of signals and the main problem was that there was a "mush" on ...

Re: videos TA 6/7 Nov

Only just managed to check mine - Definite blowout just before 0700 here.
Just about got a new one for me as well - 1630 - KCJJ - ID at 00:12
There was some horrendous local noise on this frequency last night, but a slogan ending with "The mighty 1630 KCJJ" just made it through.

Re: dx tip

An interestng thought. What I presume from the offset and programming was 4VEH was coming through on 840 a bit later. Presumng WEAV was showing on Jaguar as .0014, there was another carrier dead on 960. This may be a very little bit clearer, can anybody make out any more of the French ? https://app....

Re: Abkhazia on 1350 kHz

Thanks Matthias.

I thought it was. I kept turning up vocal versions of the anthem on Youtube and couldn't be certain.

Re: dx tip

It really is an awful recording, but at 10 seconds I hear "quatre vingt" and "en francaise". Then it goes into English with some numbers and at 53 seconds "American Lottery". Perhaps it is just some French words in an American ad on WEAV or something https://app.box.com/s/6ptz61eh4kyzsspe6ul7dg1c7oj...

Re: dx tip

I heard a station 960 at 00:40 this morning with an ad or promo in French. It then went into English ads. Anybody know if WEAV carry French ads ( I know they cover Montreal Expos games). Otherwise, any idea who this could be ? Simon

Re: dx tip

David, on the hour is there an announcement by an OM which includes the words "...radio station WLMC". Amazingly it came out of the noise for about 3 seconds just on the hour. I would never have got it without your tip. I'm 99% certain, just wondering if the words match your reception.

Re: Abkhazia on 1350 kHz

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but for some time now I have been receiving a very strong carrier on 1350.0384 starting at just before 0400, and then fading to nothing within about half an hour. Until today, I have never got audio (Argentina being too strong), but today I got an anthem at 0358 and...

Re: Not a good morning to ...

Very frustrating. Looks as if it should have been a good night, lots of strong signals, lots of carriers and a good enhancement around 7, but all the interesting looking signals were either swamped by the "usuals" or no audio, presumably because of local noise. Still checking, but does anybody know ...

Re: 1180 Radio Marti?

Peter - If you still have the recording and if it continues until 06:57 there is a a clear "Radio Rebelde en la capital de Cuba" ID and at 06:58 a big "Radio Rebelde" and the signature "tune" played a few times.
