WMBD - 08/12 - 1470

I know Stuart and David had this a while back, but I didn't catch it at the time, but a WMBD ID heard at 0600 this morning. Simon

Re: Video Demo - Tuning MW, noise, etc.

Very interesting John. A couple of years ago you posted a few of your Perseus files which I downloaded and I was green with envy at your quiet conditions. I was going to say that you now have it worse than me on some frequencies, but this morning, right on queue the noise levels across the band have...

Re: Reasonable Asiatic DX This Afternoon

Thanks John. 1377 was very strong here and tuning around I have just found Radio Pakistan in English on 585. A new MW country for me. Simon

Re: 1350 - Radio Capital

And another new one for me - A bit of a shocker really that I have never had it before. 780 - WBBM - ID at 0452. How did that happen ? At first I thought I might have accidently deleted it from the log, but I try to keep a recording of all IDs and I didn't have this one there either. Lot's of splatt...

1350 - Radio Capital

A new one for me. A Brazilian, in strong for a few hours with what sounded like religious programming and a Radio Capital ID at 04:30'32 Simon.

Re: Tip 22/11

John - I have exactly the same as you at 0600 on 1570. I was listening remotely earlier on poor headphones and thought I may be able to make it out when I got home, but am still as puzzled as you. There is also a possible ID at 05:58'27 "...Radio..." As for 1560, now I have a proper listen, the Engl...

Tip 22/11

0459 1560 Panama "La voz de la Esperanza" ID - I think that I have only received the English "Voice of Prophecy" ID on this one before.

Re: dx tip 20/11

I'd love to have it that weak, David ! Appalling this morning. I spent far too long looking for an ID on 1440 for an "exotic". Turned out to be Colomundo ! But there wasn't much else to investigate anyway.The noise has been bad here the last few days.

Re: Random thoughts

Well done John. A lot more than I managed.

They seem to have a transmitter on virtually every frequency. Imaging being a DXer there trying to get anything exotic through all of that !

16th November - Mexico Morning.

Not a lot around here until just after 0700 when some US stations strengthened and a few Mexicans came up (1570, 1470 and 1380 being strongest).

I also go this on 1590 - Does anybody recognise it ?

Re: Random thoughts

I'm not sure what they are relayng at the time. It could be that as it is midnight in Iran there could be common programmmes. I'm sure I heard at least 2 different announcements across the frequencies.

Random thoughts

Whilst looking for "anything" of interest last night, I spotted that the Iran transmitters all seem to transmit the 3 note bong, and announcement and an anthem at 20:30. It makes them easy to spot. With just a quick scan I heard it on 684, 702, 711, 1017, 1026, 1062, 1188 (no anthem) and 1314. Anoth...

Re: China - 1098

For me, at least, nothing much else turned up, so it must have just been a case of strong transmissions on a clear frequency and TA ........... less said the better.

China - 1098

China and / or Taiwan booming in here before 15:30. Chinese sounding talk and mx with another station mixing. Seeing as I find far east DX difficult to say the least, other signals may be coming in for those in more favourable locations.

Re: 09/11/2017

I had WLAC on 1510 at 0700 "This is newstalk 1510 WLAC" . It case up just before 7 and got quite strong until fading into the noise about 0725.
KXEL was strong on 1540 about the same time, but not a lot else. I had two periods of signal activity 0700 - 0725 and a brief one around 0510
