Re: Akai A61016

Looks good - what's the battery life like, Peter? The big benefit of DAB+ is it shows the radio has a newer chipset with considerably reduced power consumption. IMO there's no other reason to buy a DAB+ radio until there's any stations worth listening to :(

Re: 1476 kHz LP AM

Tx has ceased this afternoon but will return with music px in a couple of weeks, probably with slow carrier frequency modulation to assist weak-signal identification.

Re: 1476 kHz LP AM

@KT, that is excellent reception for a city location! Is that really an 8Hz beat, or is it an artefact of the recording?

Re: Bonjour everyone!

Welcome Brieuc, I hope you will soon get some good winter tropospheric signals. Whichever receiver you use, try to put up an outdoor antenna. A simple dipole mounted horizontally on a short pole will bring in so much more that a telescopic whip inside the house.

Good dx - Julian

Re: 1476 kHz LP AM

The LF enthusiast amateurs have picked up the challenge to detect this 10W tx, using the full range of techniques for weak-signal detection. The DLs had no problem, then at night the Gs, GMs and EIs saw it, then by gray-line someone in Virginia, then a PP (Brazil) who could see the 1sec pulses on a ...

Re: The first Hungarian SW pirate was raided

yes, it's best not to give too many details on social media if you are going to break the law! Here, the police recently arrested someone who had posted on FaceBook with videos of him riding a motorcycle at about 250kph

One of them is Ralph (DL2NDO, one of the participants in the legendar...

Does that mean that Llanddona is to have 2 R Wales? :geek:

Re: Jim Creek Naval VLF station is imprinted on Nirvana demos!

Nice find, do you apply spectral analysis to all your CDs? :D
When they QSY'd to 24.8 that would take the signal above the Nyquist filter frequency for CDs

Re: Es Mon 4th June 2018

I caught just a bit of this while driving at about 18:30z, seemed to be mostly Hungarian language, there was sport on 88.2 + 88.5, any quiet channel had some up to 93.4 which was as far as I got. 87.6 had "Budapest" in the speech.

The only RDS I saw was BLANIK on 87.8 but I've no idea what that was
