Re: (correction) RSL 87.7 Goodwood Radio received in Hampshire

My bad on the first report. It is actually "Goodwood Radio" for the Festival Of Speed this weekend. Managed to get better reception this morning. This is the first time I have received it at home, so they must have either upped the power of the TX or changed the transmitting path this year as condit...

Re: Little activity

I don't think so. Remember August can still be a good month for E Skip, in one season from the past it was better than the rest. I just hope I am not wrong this time round.

Re: Mega Es > Italy

Spain & Algeria very strong now. There was also 88.2 Chaine 2 Algeria which FM List has @ 2.5kW power which is a first for me apart from all the usual stronger relays that are received that are 70kW on average.

Re: RSL in Hampshire - 87.9 YCF 2018

Indeed it was for 3 days. Now off air. However, more RSLs I expect are on the way for my neck of the woods which I can easily receive. The ones that come to mind from previous years are the annual events such as the the Isle Of Wight world yacht race schedules for the 7th of July but the RSL station...

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

Update for 01/07/18. SWR which only broadcasts on weekends & bank holidays was off air today Sunday. The station was heard on the Saturday, so no idea if broadcasting technical fault, OFCOM intervened or the owner is on holiday. Will check again the following weekend. No other pirates here on air. A...

Re: Ofcom have been busy in London

No chance of receiving Origin FM on 95.1 FM then if there is a strong tropo opening from London. Used to be a regular here along with a few other pirates. I don't see Kool FM on the active list. Are they still on, or how long have they been off air? OFCOM raids are a waste of time nowadays imo, give...

Re: Continental DAB 26/6/18

Last night during the Dutch tropo on the FM band, 9D Zuidwest was in but very weak & only the carriers. As soon as the Dutch tropo disappeared around 2am & went UK inland again, so did the DAB band with MUX transmitters from London & surrounding counties received with good reception.
