Re: Korner 9.2 from Antennenland - in stock

That's an idea ... There's no' radio shop' within 100 km around is location, but perhaps any sympathetic merchant would accept.

Re: Korner 9.2 from Antennenland - in stock

A friend of mine is interested in a Körner 9.2.
Since Antennenland no longer ships outside Germany, is it currently possible to purchase this antenna elsewhere ? (a genuine unit of course, not a poor copy).

Re: AirScout v1.3.0.7 released

Tim : no problem here using either a W10 desktop or a W8.1 laptop.
Be sure the maps you need (SRTM3 model for me) are fully downloaded, unless AirScout won't work properly. It doesn't matter if the HAM database is not downloaded.

When the maps are OK, the selected area turns to green (red otherwise)

Re: AirScout v1.3.0.7 released

It perfectly works with non Hams calls.
Attached is a screenshot showing AirScout calculating a propagation path to RAI 3, Menconico / Monte Penice TX on 99.9 FM

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

I finally ordered a Pure Elan E3. First inconvenience when opening the package : no continental adapter supplied along with the power supply (only the UK one). Following Peter's 'unboxing" clip, I thought this accessory was included with the device ... This is not very important, but it indicates a ...

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

Yep, I'm indeed looking for a portable radio.
Even if reception from the Sangean is *very* unstable, it seems to me that the audio of the Pure is better (less flat) ; but that's a matter of taste, your advice could differ !

Don't believe everything you see on YouTube. Some footballers look brilliant on YT, but when my team signs them they are not.
Excellent :lol:
But when you hear the audio from 2 radios, placed side by side, and recorded with the same camera / phone ... Of course, I can be wrong !

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

I wasn't aware that the 'Play' was discontinued. I also didn't know that this Roberts was actually a re-badged Sangean ; that's one less competitor on the list ! I 'm trying to find a serious review of the latest Sony (S61) but there are only purely commercial comments. It could offer better audio q...

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

I said the Elan E3 is better on FM than the S40. That is what you asked me. The Elan E3 is more user-friendly than the S40 and it has a better display, but it is marginally less sensitive on DAB than the S40. I think that the Sangean DAB radios would be better for your needs, but they are expensive...

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

I have the Sony S40. The Pure Elan E3 is better than the S40. Hi Peter, Sorry to react with a lot of delay to this comment ! I came across one of your videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb1IKITJPVE) in which you mention at 0:40 that the 12D ensemble is not audible using the Pure Elan E3 though...

Yumor FM (BLR) QSL offer

Hi mates ! Last week, I heard Yumor FM (BLR) on 87.5 and posted my report on FMlist. A few hours later, I was very surprised to receive the following mail : Good day, Patrick. Let me introduce myself - I'm Alex Yankovsky, editor of the radio station "Yumor FM-Belarus". Are also the user of the websi...

Re: To Eznec users (quad loop vs dipole)

Hi Stuart, Thanks for the interesting link. According to some comments, I think it's actually irrelevant to build a quad loop, though it seems quite effective for some people ("The quad has no gain over a dipole, and actually can have loss, at heights where the dipole has a vertical pattern null, su...

To Eznec users (quad loop vs dipole)

Hi there ! Does anyone master Eznec, or similar software ? I want to know the "real" gain of a band 2 quad loop (312 cm perimeter) and the F/B value. Some documents state it equals a 3 elements Yagi (5 dBd), some other say it's barely better compared to a half-wave dipole (2.15 dBi). In the end, I'm...

Re: Blaupunkt BPR-3 unboxing video

Hi Pascal ! I was indeed recently told that the Sony S40 was not fine (though probably better than my Sony P1DBP). I first thought the Pure Elan E3 would be a good choice, but after Peter's clip showing both radios I'm doubtful. Unfortunately, the BPR-3 is not available. According to a serbian DX'er...

Re: Blaupunkt BPR-3 unboxing video

I did another search to purchase a BPR-3 and it indeed seems it's only available from UK, from very few stores.
Nothing available in Germany, though Blaupunkt is (to my knowledge) a german brand.
Too bad ... it sounds really sensitive.
