Re: UNID 800

No problem. I frequently have to ask, especially from the Spanish speaking stations

Re: UNID 800

Right at the start and on a few other occasions there are mentions of "Radio Transmundial" , so it is Trans World Radio from Bonaire. Simon

Re: UNID NA 1380: Solved! WWMI St Petersburg FL

Thanks a lot for that John. All I can say is it is the same offset and the same OM talking. I think we must be phased to have alternate signal fades.

I think I can put it as a very tentative until something better comes along.

Re: UNID NA 1380: Solved! WWMI St Petersburg FL

Thanks John - Don't go out of your way. I really like to hear an ID and I definitely haven't got that.

Re: UNID 930 and 1180

1180 is definitely Radio Rebelde. The distinctive "sounder" is at 22 seconds.

On 930 you have nice "La Voz de Bogota" IDS at 29 and 38 seconds. Nice signal.

Re: UNID NA 1380: Solved! WWMI St Petersburg FL

Ah. From your offset that is the one that I received with business/Money talk. Unfortunately, the only audio I had was around 02:20 and 02:37 with no chance of an ID. Simon

Re: Kiss 105.3 ID on 1350

An interesting one John.

I think it is CISS-FM from Ottawa. They are KISS 105.3 and their slogan is "the most variety from the 90's to now" and you have "from the 90s to now" and a mention of Ottawa.

Now who on 1350 would be relaying them is a different question !

940 - French

Does anybody know if the French Montreal station is still on the air ? I remember getting tests for CFNV a couple of years ago, but Wikipedia suggest it is may now be CFQR although it is not clear if it is transmitting. Received this at 03:35. No ID, but any clues in what is being said. Canadian acc...

Re: Conditions 07/11

Sorry John, I'm sure I replied earlier, but it seems to have done a Yahoo! and disappeared. Mine was on 920.0009 when calibrated with 909. On the second recording that sounds like what I had with a jingle like burst of music followed by the OM ID, another short burst of music and then the OM talking...

Re: Conditions 07/11

First new station with the Flag ! And a new country Radio Nacional del Paraguay - 920 - In for much of the night. ID at 03:04'34 I know - It's a new transmitter and probably easy to hear now, but it's a start. I lied and kept using the flag as conditions were still so poor. Still getting great recep...

Re: Conditions 07/11

Thanks for all the input. I'm going back to the loop for the time being as I clearly have an issue. I am getting NO null and adjusting the resistor makes no difference. Considering the conditions, the signals I was getting lower down the band were not bad, but higher up is useless (I possibly have a...

Re: Conditions 07/11

Basically I messed up. There were no flag antenna kits listed on ebay. I said I wanted the kit for a MW flag and he said to order the EWE with fixed resistor and he would adjust price after. His final email said that he would be sending "1:9 matching transformer (50 to 450 Ohm) + variable terminatio...

Re: Conditions 07/11

It was sold as a flag balun, but I have to admit that I am a complete antenna ignoramus, I'm afraid.

Re: Conditions 07/11

Thanks Peter - Useful information. Very kind of you David. I'll try a few more nights to see if things improve and if not then I may take you up on that. Looking at the MediumWavelist logs for last night there isn't much apart from the Swedish superdxers and I have received everything that the Dutch...

Re: Conditions 07/11

Thanks both - I'll have a play.

I sourced the balun from the Canadian ebay seller. I'm wondering if we got our wires crossed as looking back at the email trail it seems he has sent me 1:9. Would that be a problem ?

Re: Conditions 07/11

OK. I'll come clean. I've "tried" putting up some sort of flag. Before going to bed, I was cautiously optimistic. The usual Canadians were coming in 590,730, 930 680 etc. WFAN was in and out on 660. Cuba on 670. 710 Cuba was in all night quite strong sometimes mixing with WOR and CKVO. But the highe...

Conditions 07/11

Can anybody comment on TA conditions last night on MW ?

Strong regulars as well as rarities. Was doing some tests last night and they were VERY disappointing.

thanks Simon
