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.

Re: 08/06 - A bit of activity

Mark, The ones that come in most often for me are (notice the 'most regular' was in inverted commas above. They are by no means every day or even every week, just when conditions are right.) :- 1570 - Radio Bethel (This one was in strong on Thursday) 1380 - Radio Nuevo Tiempo Both the above have lot...

08/06 - A bit of activity

Some signals around this morning. Most of the 'more regular' Peruvians were audible.

A new one for me was Radio Espinar on 1480 with music and and ID at 03:47.

A question on propagation mode

I'll hold my hands up and say I'm very limited in my knowledge of Band II propagation modes. When I did TV DX on Band I and UHF, to me all I was seeing was Tropo, Sp-E or F2. I never saw, or recognised that I saw MS, Aircraft Scatter, lightning scatter , Aurora or FAI although I had read about them ...

Re: Tropo SE England, NE France, northern Germany

I'm not in the best location for Tropo and haven't got the best aerials, but both Belgium and Ireland are at strong levels at the moment.

Not unheard of, but quite unusual for my location in Cardiff.

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

I've given up on my "Costa Rica". Even thinking now that he could be saying Puerto Rico and the ID could be Radio Vida (that's how bad I am at ID'ing Spanish speakers !). Was anybody recording last night ? Again on 1400, there was a station that came up to some sort of strength, very briefly, at 3:5...

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

I bet you were looking forward to a move to the Arctic Circle, John. I didn't get a bite on REALDX, so wondering if anybody here would give this a listen. I'm pretty sure now that it is Radio Sinai, but with unusual ones and especially Latins, I like somebody else to give me confidence before loggin...

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

Yes, back to pretty poor last night.

I don't know why yours looks more "high res" than mine and I suspect the lots of red on mine is more to do with the Wellbrook amplification and not an indication of listenable signals, but this is what mine looks like.

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

Yes. Mine were showing as
CBG 1400.01
Harbour Light 14.003
Costa Rica (pres at the moment) on 1399.985

I was lucky that Canada dropped in level and .985 statio was dominant with music before and after the announcement at 04:13

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

After saying how bad things are, I think I had a new one for me in Radio Sinai TICJ, Costa Rica on 1400 at 04:13 this morning.
It certainly sound like it to me, but I've posted to RealDX in hope of confirmation (My Latin American ears can sometimes almost hear anything !).

Re: MW Overnight 2017-05-14

Hope you are well John.
It's been rubbish here. Lot's of weakish signals, but noise levels high. WEGP and some Canadians are about it here.

Re: Spanish Es around at the moment.

I found a short opening to Poland around 16:20z with a nice surprise being Radio Zlote Przeboje on 90.4 coming up for about 5 seconds just as they were giving an ID.
