Re: MW conditions

Yes, David. There has been an improvement the last few days. WFAN was there, but poor for me. Too much noise. 1560 - 1600 was giving the strongest signals here. As you say, yesterday was a SA night. There was one signal that was quite strong on 1440 (I think probably Brazil) with a time signal about...

Malta ? - 88.7

I'm only persisting with this one because I have never had Malta before and am tempted to lower my standards to log it ! I'm wondering if anybody else logged this one for longer with an ID or RDS https://app.box.com/s/vtx6pgl3e1jwnbkgmermyrbdlyx7zhbn It is definitely an ad for La Grotta and there is...

Re: Was it just here?

Peter - That is exellent reception.

I got a great looking carrier for WFED, but the audio was nowhere near as good as yours. I fear local noise is the problem.

Re: Was it just here?

Yes John. It was down a bit on the night before, but still quite a few signals around. I have to keep reminding myself (due to the weather !) that it is still August. We can't really expect much for a month or two yet. You have it much better for Asia. The far east is VERY rare for me. I checked 972...

Re: Was it just here?

Looking up again last night - Some good signals from NA and the Caribbean area. Some old friends like KDKA coming through well and my Bete Noir , CHRF (at least I presume it is - I've NEVER heard an ID so refuse to log it !) . Does anybody know if Bermuda is still on 1280 ? I thought that I had hear...

No John. It was disappointing after the night before. And I don't think last night was any better.

Re: Was it just here?

Lots of NA signals last night. Nothing special, but most frequencies had audio at sometime during the night. Looking forward to more.

Re: China in already on MW!

I don't know if you caught the thread on the offsets group, but 1377 came through quite strong on 23rd at 22:30 and after.

According to the experts, Xingyang was (is ?) off and this was Lhasa.

Re: Was it just here?

John, For me last night was slightly better for NA. Nothing great, but Family Radio and CHIN were coming in as well as the one on 1390 (WEGP ?). Some CBC outlets as usual and from SA good signals from Globo on 1100 and Buenos Aires on 1350. Most at their best around 04:00 (and one thing I do like ab...

Re: Was it just here?

Some more South Americans coming in last night. A new one for me - 1510 - Peru - Radio Alegria - IID @ 02:50:54 I've tried v3 Beta a few times and (Surprise, surprise) didn't like it ! I'm resistant to change, so I will probably come around in the end, but am sticking t0 what I know at the moment. S...

Re: Was it just here?

John, I think you picked the wrong day. I've been away and left the Perseus recording and the best day last week was the 10th with quite a few Peruvians and I finally logged an "easy" station which I've heard many times, but not got an ID from, 1280 Super Radio Tupi with a nice jingle and some IDs a...

Re: Tropo NW Spain

Thanks for the tip Nick. I have been in West Sussex for the week and was just leaving. It is a different world down there FMDX wise and I was amazed to get 94.1 Radio Galega in full RDS on the car radio. My first Spanish tropo. I know it is cheating going 150 miles to get it but, what the heck. It w...

Fmlist works fine for me on a blackberry passport Julian.
StationlistM as well.

A bit off topic, Patrick, but shortwaveschedules isn't a bad little app to see what is on shortwave

Libyan on 87.5

I've seen the Libyan station on 87.5 mentioned a few times. During an Algerian opening on 26th I got a few strong bursts of a Qu'ran station on 87.5mhz. No RDS received unfortunately. On one of the bursts it was accompanied by an identical signal on 90.15mhz. Does anybody know if the Libyan is also ...

Re: Test tone via MS 87.9

Thanks for this information. I've had a few CAT openngs over the last few days and heard these.

87.9 was in this morning. Good to know what they are.
