Re: How was last night for you ?

mmm. I'm glad I haven't got my recordings to compare now. It would have been soul destroying For those not having a good ID of Radio Buenos Aires, it was very strong around 01:00 on 1350 with some programme details and an ID at 01:01'25. It's been almost nightly here this summer, but last night was ...

How was last night for you ?

I'm afraid I had a bad case of premature ....... Things were looking great when I went to bed - all the Canadiands and a few Latins coming in really strong low down in the band. Came down this morning to "connection to the Perseus is lost.......Retrying". Nothing after about 0110z ! Don't know what ...

Re: 2017-09-20 Conditions

No time signal so not WKAQ. something here as well at that time not clear enough to ID, but WKAQ booming in from about 05:35 610 Spanish OM 0224. Some carriers, but only audio ss just after 0530 680 Two Spanish stations 0300. WAPA ve...

Re: unid 18/09/2017

Peter,

My guess would be Grenada. The dominant station for me at both times was CBC and it is not them. I get the same music as you interfering with CBC at 0524 - and the offset matches with what Grenada has been on recently.

17th September.

Nothing sensational, but at least something got through today.

570 - Radio Nacional de Colombia - Good ID at 0550
580 - WKAQ - Also with a good ID a few seconds after the Colombia ID.

It's a start !

Yes. Thanks again Christoph. Any Asian is a bonus here, fighting through all the UK locals and the rest of Europe.
I think that John is on the lookout for the other one as well !

I have to thank Christoph Ratzer for logging to MWLIST. I wouldn't have spotted it without that.

Italy 88.7

Can anybody identify if this is an ID.
It doesn't sound like anything I can see listed, so may not be.

88.7 mhz - 12:24 utc - 25/08/2017

Re: An Improvement?

Ok - I should have learnt from 950 a couple of weeks ago. It's (I presume it is the same station) there again only stronger and clearly not South American. I think it is Eritrea. Again, I didn't expect them to be on 840. Simon

Re: An Improvement?

You could be right John. It was just too weak and splattered. 840 is difficult here as well and I only have WHAS logged on there. Another one that got away, but at least it was something.

Re: "DAYSCAN (LIVE)" on Jaguar v3

Sorry John. I've misled you. I meant "Extended Scan" on each frequency.

I quite like the extended scan at speed 10 to scroll through, but it takes quite some time to generate on each frequency if you want a long period.

Re: An Improvement?

Did anyone spot a station on 840 just after 0300 ? There was what sounded like an ID at 0301, then a jaunty tune and possibly another mention of the station name all by a yl. It sounded to me like Radio M...... The strange thing is that although I think it was Spanish, I'm sure that the first announ...

Re: "DAYSCAN (LIVE)" on Jaguar v3

Yes. Very useful. Or will be when we get some DX.

I'm greedy, though. Would love to have full scan for all frequencies ! Probably be a resource hog, though. Would be nice to be able to set up a few favourite frequencies to do a full scan on, say a set time after sunrise.

Re: An Improvement?

Slight.

Mostly carriers on the frequencies you mention. Audio from WMFE, 1540, 1570, CBC on 1400.
The station you got on 1570 is one I log every night - On numerous frequencies - especially when LA is coming in :D

Re: blackout

That's reassuring and in this case just as useful as stunning tips. I'm sure I've fixed the antenna cable, but not as sign of anything.
