Re: Season review

Poor - lack of exciting & new signals. Best opening was from Greece which I could receive RDS. Austria was alright as well. But even regulars like Italy, Iberia & north Africa were average compared to other seasons. Frustrating - if I am away from home, I tend to have my SDR on for remote access dur...

UK Bass seems to be on tonight on 88.9, weak here with drum & bass and shouting MC.
Yes it was them. They were doing a very rare live show...

Re: Greece BOB

Nothing on B2 for some time, but just a heads up that I have just received a couple of signals from eastern Europe on 6m. Hopefully this will go further along the band.

Edit: Just heard a German language station on 87.6 @1456 hrs UK time, very brief though.

Tropo 22/08/18

Fair enhancement from northern France. Receiving Fun Radio on 88.9 from Boulogne-sur-Mer/Mont Lambert. Normally it is France Inter from Le Havre which I am also receiving as well taking turns with Fun Radio.

Re: Tropo 21/08/18 - Ireland in

Ireland gone. I wonder for how long it was in, as last night there was not much. Must have been overnight buildup. Also BBC relays have dropped too, a few still good.

Tropo 21/08/18 - Ireland in

UK inland tropo doing well with BBC relays on the FM band. Also a fair enhancement of northern France. Just checked DAB & nothing happening there.

Edit: Ireland in, receiving RTE2 on 91.8 from Mount Leinster, presumed 99.2 RTÉ Lyric FM with classical now on.

E Skip 21/08/18

Heard Arabic on 87.6 @ around 0910 hrs for a couple of minutes. No ID or RDS. Nothing else since then, but it will be a challenge for Es since UK tropo is enhanced here with BBC relays doing well.

Re: Southampton Common Files 04-08-2018

From some of your other recordings: 88.7 France Musique from Lille @ 126 kW is also a regular here so you could have received that one 89.0 France Musique from Le Mans has been received here in the past so that is possible 90.4 with classical music would be VRT Klara, Egem, Belgium 91.5 BBC Radio 3 ...

Re: Southampton Common Files 04-08-2018

1st file to try fill in the unknowns suggested above: 87.6 must be SWR, our local pirate station 87.8 most likely Radio Courtoisie from Cherbourg, a regular here during tropo from northern France 88.2 Edit: Just seen my log for French tropo & have received RCF from Le Havre in a past opening, so you...

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

Outside of Southampton not sure, maybe Winchester since that is fairly high although never tried band scanning there. In Southampton, maybe try Bassett area as it has a park there, accessible by bus & is quite high. Driving through there I notice the likes of London get enhanced. The problem is roun...

Re: Es 23/07/18

Heard Arabic on 87.6 clashing with RMC from Le Havre thanks to the continued strong north France tropo.

Also OIRT E Skip on now.

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

Update 23/07/18

SWR on 87.6 still going. Heard for the past couple of weekends so maybe technical problems for the weekend when they were not on air.

UK Bass on 88.9 heard doing testing this month, maybe on for a couple of hours.
