Re: Who is leaving MW at the end of this year?

Ofcom should do one of their consultations to find out just who is listening still on MW with talksport absolute and 5live, my dream is that all switch off every tx by the end of the year !!

Re: Spain & MW: my view

I am still surprised AM is still so annoyingly dominant really even so. When I stayed in Viahoyosa in 85 with my parents the FM band was completely full up with great stations even then, was AM similar also at this time I wonder ?

The "maybe until 2019" got updated in September when the mast received an OK for extended life. So it's now:

Re: The Conditions Thread

Thanks for your replies. Yes, I upgraded from an SDR Play 1 to the 1A. Didn't expect it to be much of an improvement but its noise floor is lower than its predecessor and it seems a lot more sensitive. Yes, I know about the Airspy HF+ & its very good dynamic range, suitability for MW DXing etc. How...
