Tip 21/10

May not be much of a tip, but a new one for me, so it may be one required by others.

1490 - WBAE Portland, ME - ID 0556

Re: 1350 NBC Sports Radio

Were you still looking for a WDMC ID, John ? There was a very clear one at 0558 this morning here

Re: Late Fadeout

WW"KB was still just about in at 0830 when my recording finished and at the other end VOCM started coming through at about just after 2015.

1480 - UNID / Tip - Take your pick

Heard this morning on 1480 at 0200.

Now, I'll admit I am suffering from an ear problem at the moment (probably just wax, but the next doctors appointment is 3 weeks away !), so I may be hearing things.

Is it WDJO ?

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Double is out of the question.

I notice that you and David mention a variable resistor, but many of the diagrams have a fixed one somewhere around 900Ω and the Canadian ebay seller has a fixed resistor. Does it matter ?

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Thanks John. So let's see if I have this right. I take a random length of wire, attach a Balun and resistor somewhere in the loop made out of the wire, toss it in the general direction of a couple of vertical poles, hope for the best and pick up The Philippines, West coast of America and all points ...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Thanks everybody. It may happen......eventually.

Don't worry John - Certainly wouldn't laugh. No grass in my garden - Just ground ivy ! And a tree which takes up half the garden, is about to go and "may" give me room for a flag.

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

How have you both 'constructed' your flags? Do you have a frame and if so of what is it made? Or do you suspend the wire in some way or what?

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Interesting how reception varies by location.

Hardly anything on 1490 here, but there was a Spanish station most of the night on 1480, but I haven't been able to track down an ID. I suspect WMDD.

700 was mainly WLW, with Sucre in for a short but strong burst.

Re: The Conditions Thread

It's not that one - Although it is not the published offset, I think that one is WHKZ. The EWTN one is approx 1439.999

Re: The Conditions Thread

Possible tip - 1440 - WMAX - No ID heard, but EWTN ID at 0630. I can't find another station relaying EWTN on 1440. Maybe somebody else can find an ID

Re: KOMO Seattle WA 1000.0019?

9999 is almost certainly WMVP. I've been getting it regularly at audio level, but as you say, the splatter is terrible. I suppose 0019 must be KOMO. No audio here. Came in at 0300 9834 and 9979 also visible here. I'm also seeing a VERY faint aprox .9930 from about 0540 (might be earlier, but covered...

Re: DX tip 04/10

Thanks for that John. I did have Chinese mixing with KYYW after the hour, but had put it out of my mind whilst chasing the KYYW ID.

Re: The season so far?

David,

I don't know if you are still monitoring, but Mexico was like a local on 1570 here from before 0600 until after 0630 this morning. Excellent "La Poderosa" IDs at 0602.

Re: The season so far?

I think that it is too early to tell for me. Asia is never that good here and NA doesn't REALLY pick up until November. Had some good catches, but they have been mainly due to stations being on day power or other stations being missing rather than conditions. I've seen some comments that conditions ...
