Re: 18/01/2019

Good signals from across north America at around 0600 hrs UTC. 1010 kHz with good signal & sound, 670 kHz may have been Rebelde but will need to listen again to my recording of the MW band. 830, 840, 880 & 940 signals heard, which I would be guess are east coast but I am hoping to get more the centr...

Re: What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Spain - Cadena SER, maybe the Extremadura relay but I have not ID'ed it yet. Spain also on 621 kHz for me, RNE. Maybe a good chance now to get the Canarias relay although upto now it would most likely be from mainland Spain. This is all indoors, when on my next DXpedition I will try to setup my SDR ...

DAB via tropo 27/12/18: "Dunkerque local" MUX

First time I have received this MUX. Good to see that French DAB is more of a regular thing during tropo openings with the rollout still happening.

https://youtu.be/_icHJ2orV4o

Paris 5 & Lille MUX were also received again during this opening.

87.8 The Rock (London) received via tropo in Southampton

I got this here on Boxing Day. I had to go to my favourite tropo location to receive it otherwise France would have been heard instead.

Re: 1476 AM 26/12/2018 - 08/01/2019

Yes you are right, it was not Sweden that I was receiving.

Just heard CWR ID & a message saying that it was carrying out a test transmission. Signal has gone weaker for me as the evening has progressed but I am hoping to make a recording within the next few days.

Re: 1476 AM 16/12/2018 - 08/01/2019

Thanks for the information. I am receiving continous 60s sounding music at the moment on 1476 so it must be them, other times it would be Egypt or Iran on this frequency.

Re: Balkan pirates chatting

I have only received & recognised Greek users on the AM band for chats, mostly between 1680 to 1800 kHz. Closest I have received with regards to pirate activity from the old Yugoslavia on the AM band was "Radio Rambo" which was on 1650 kHz playing folk music. This is supposed to be from Serbia from ...

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

I have updated the 1st post of this thread. Only one Hampshire pirate station still going as far as I know which is SWR on 87.6, heard last weekend. No idea if UK Bass has been on air since I received them back in the summer as I have not done much FM DXing over the past few months. They can be quit...

Re: Best portable for LW?

My Sony ICF-2010 beats all my other portables for LW so I would recommend seeking one. You can also do what I have done, which is make a homebrew LW antenna that allows inductive coupling with the internal ferrite antennas of the portables. What could not be received before is now possible even on t...

DAB power increase in UK

I was listening to Absolute 80s yesterday & the presenter mentioned about UK DAB recently getting a a power increase of transmitters. The initial aim I presume apart from extending national coverage & minimizing signal dropout is to get new listeners to digital radio. To what I have seen online, it ...

Re: Tropo 25/10/18

Yesterday evening the tropo was a shadow of what it was in the morning. Only some strong national French stations remained. Strange this is that while others were reporting Germany & Switzerland being received, I had neither at the same time. I did get Germany up until lunchtime yesterday though. My...
