Re: MW 21/10/2017

The Canadians and some US were coming in strong from quite early last night. I haven't had time to check much yet, but WCSL on 1590 is a new "presumed" for me. I haven't found an ID yet, but I did get "Stan Leaf (?) in the KTC broadcasting studios" at 06:42, which is a smoking gun - Offset high as w...

Re: A couple of questions about 1510

And as soon as I posted that, I found a weak "1510 KGA Spokane" at 06:00'47 for anybody still loking for it.

Re: A couple of questions about 1510

Great reception Mark.

The best I got was a "Fox Sports Radio" check at 05:46.

I also got the music station, but no ID. American Pie at the same time as John, but it's just too clichéd. A bit like hearing "You 'aint seen nothing yet" on a 49m band pirate !

A couple of questions about 1510

I heard sport on 1510 this morning. Offset was .987 I see a few have had KGA in the past few days. Is that still the offset for KGA ?

No ID, so I can't log, but second question - Does that count as West Coast ?

thanks Simon

Re: Omg I'm dxing mw from home again!

Welcome back to Gods own band, Tim. I took a long break and came back a few years ago. Horrified by the noise. It is still very frustrating, but fun. Did you record ? If so, your 1280 may be CFMB - seconds after 0600 there is a good "Ici CFMB, douze quatre-vingt Radio Montreal" ID. The talk (or rant...

Re: dx tips

And Radio Sociedade da Bahia at 00:24 on 740.
Sorry if these are regulars for some, but (maybe due to ID difficulties !) these are new ones for me.

Re: 1206 - Any idea what this is ?

I'm thinking that it is Israel. It is stronger tonight and seems to go straight into a time signal and the Jerusalem ID. I can't see a reference to KAN Bet having a French programme, though.
I think that the music was another station.

Re: 1206 - Any idea what this is ?

ThanksJohn and I'm glad it's not only me who can't identify the language :lol:

I don't think it is exotic and still suspect a pirate of some sort. Maybe an Italian relaying something else ?

Thanks for the Greek list, I didn't know about that one.

Re: Was Asia improved yesterday ?

Thanks Matthis. I'll keep listening for that elusive ID. Thanks for posting the tips John. Not very good for me last night, the only signals of any strength being on 1098. 1900 I'm sure had the CNR ts and ID, but at 2000 it was just music. Unfortunately 1377 wasn't playing ball, so I couldn't compare.

Re: Was Asia improved yesterday ?

Yes you have mentioned this before David. It is on my list of things to do, but unfortunately at the moment I am very time poor and can't motivate myself to do other things that are higher on my todo list. Hopefully I will pull myself together sometime and give it a go.

Re: poor conditions but a PF

Excellent David. Virtually nothing here. YVKS is seemingly indestructible and a few others that have become regular this year like Buenos Aires, but nothing much else.

Re: Was Asia improved yesterday ?

Thanks John. I can match the tune from your recording, so I am happy with that. It helps to relive the TA boredom. I'm suffering increased noise problems as well. It's a pity. I was looking forward to increased possibilities this winter, but, even if conditions improve, I'm not sure what I will get....

I'm wondering if John et al go anything interesting from Asia last night. By my standards (!) it was quite good at 2100 1377 China booming in with good ts and ID 1098 same as 1377, much weaker, but ts and partially ID audible. 972 Possible Asian - End of long last pip time signal heard under other s...

Re: 1170- signature tune

:oops: It's Radio Capodistria !
I've gone back a few days and it is really strong - nulled last night, but still getting through.

Sorry !

1170- signature tune

I've been (unsuccessfully) trying to null noise and improve TA reception by adjusting the loop. Last night's attempt (a disaster as it nulled any DX as well as the noise !) did a good job of minimising Swansea Sound and Capodistria on 1170 which are the usual pests. This mainly only let TFM2 and Smo...

Rubbish here.
Radio Nacional on 680, a few Cubans and that was it. The Ideal carrier looked strong, but no audio.

Re: dx tip

That's definitely "Radio Uno" in that clip - well done. Only noise and probably WJR here.
