Peru

Lots of strong signals from Peru last night. The 'usuals', 1570 Bethel, 1500 Santa Rosa, 1470 Capital and 1380 Radio Nuevo Tiempo were very strong with IDs. But there were also signals on 1450, 1440 (around the reported offset of Radio Solar), 1430 and 1350. Too weak or indistinct for me to ID, but ...

Re: Tropo > Norway

Due to poor aerials and topography, I don't very often get to join in the Tropo fun, but quite a few French, Belgian and Dutch stations making it into South Wales this morning.

87.6 - 9th June

Does anybody recognise this one ? 87.6 - 17:00 - 09/06/2018,

I was receiving Serbia, Croatia, Hungary and Austria at the time. It sounds like zoomer or soomer radio to me, but I can't find anything like that.

Re: Best software version for FDM S2

1.96 Beta is in here http://sdr.eladit.com/FDM-sw2%20Softwar ... hp?lang=EN

I've been using it since it came out. No crashes, just the one problem with recordings sometimes failing.

Best software version for FDM S2

What software version are people using with their FDM S2 ? I've stuck with 1.96 Beta because it was fairly stable and around that time Elad were issuing some real dogs. It does the job, but has one real PITA. When you manually record, it appears as if it is recording (the red light comes on), but co...

Re: The Conditions Thread

If there is anybody recording who needs some Peruvians, Capital (1470) and (I presume) Bethel (1570) were booming in last night around 04:00. Capital with some nice IDs. There may be some more, but haven't had time to check yet. I wonder if the Peruvian Navy have ever fought a battle ? At 04:05'48 t...

Re: RDSspy won't work after W10 update

On your advanced settings for the device check to see if "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" is ticked. I believe it may have been unticked in the update "for security reasons"

Re: The Conditions Thread

Anybody still listening ? A few more interesting signals today. I wonder if anybody got something coming above WWKB on 1520 for a short while around 0416 ? Unfortunately all I got was music with no announcements (either easy music, classics or religious - I didn't know the tracks - the main one was ...

Re: The Conditions Thread

Brazilian morning for me, but as usual with the Latins, I can't identify any. 1350 was particularly strong with announcements and 'noticias', but nothing that sounded like 'capital' or 'super' that I have heard here before. Also one on 1540 which would definitely be a new one for me, but although I ...

Re: a pf this morning

Nice catch David.

It's strange how MW works. Radio Capital was coming in here at 0500 yesterday and I had some thing Spanish very weak and no chance of an ID on 1380, but this morning nothing on either !

Re: dx tip

And on 1290 on the 2nd WNBF Binghampton ID at 05:33 - another new one. Sorry - Trying to catch up on the last week or so. And of course the one above was also 1290 !
There was a WKBK ID just after as well

Excellent - Thanks John. I've got my sunrise and hourly grids back ! Now if I could only find what happened to x-ray - It nicely showed peaks in individual signals, but seems to have been ditched.

My mistake ! The clear button is there - Cunningly hidden behind the useless yellow yo-yo bars that have taken the place of the useful time bars that were there before !
