Re: Technisat 215

That's interesting Alex. Considering that, according to some videos seen on YouTube (for example : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW_BWPe72nY), the DPR69 is globally equivalent to the Pure E3 that I already own, I'm not sure it's actually relevant to replace it with another model that wouldn't brin...

Re: Technisat 215

Both the german and the french units show the RDS logo on the picture ...
I just sent Cdiscount.fr a message to ask if the unit they sell actually has this logo

Re: Technisat 215

The one currently price 85 euros in France has the RDS logo but not "DAB DigitalAudioBroadcasting" above the display ...
But I assume the pic is not the real one of the unit they sell, it can simply be an illustrative photo.

Re: Technisat 215

The one I linked to does DAB+, so we can assume that it's the same model as the one available in Germany ; but indeed, nothing is clearly indicated in the technical description.

Re: Technisat 215

Hi Alex,

I haven't ordered it yet precisely because of the doubt I have about the chip. Some models are available in France, but nothing is specified as to whether it is fitted with the Verona module.

Which is the one you purchased ?

Price here is still about 85 euros.

Re: How do I get RDS Spy to work?

I've been using RDSSpy with VB Cable (Hi-Fi Version of course, otherwise it won't support 192 kHz) for years.
Is it fine on your side now ?

Re: Technisat 215

Thanks PFM907 (sorry, I don't remember your name). I will take your wise advice and purchase a SolarDAB2, currently priced about 85 euros (https://www.cdiscount.com/high-tech/radios-reveils-dictaphones/robert-solar-dab-2-radio-numerique-dab-rnt-et/f-1063004-rob5038301300791.html?idOffre=-1&awc=6...

Re: Technisat 215

Why not just get a Pure Elan E3 (...) All it needs to liven it up a bit is a Band III yagi and plenty of low noise, high IP3, high gain pre-amplification. How do you attach an external antenne to the E3 ? @PFM : in terms of sensitivity, do you think it's worth replacing an E3 with a Tchnisat Digitr...

Portable radio to replace Pure Elan

Hi there ! I know this question has been asked before, about 2 years ago, but perhaps new products have come along since then. I am currently using a Pure Elan E3 and I am quite happy with it for outdoor listening, but - at home - in my mountainous area, dropouts are quite frequent as I am at the li...

TII codes database

Hi there !

Does anyone know an updated and reliable list of TII codes ?
DABlist and Wohnort unfortunately provide incomplete data and many entries are missing.

For exemple, regarding Swiss MUX 10B, I'm looking for TII from Mont Salève /Téléphérique (F 74 / GE)

Thanks

Re: New 68th DXCC country on FM

Hi Roland,

Congrats on these nice catches.

Col de la Madone indeed refers to MCO but it's actually located in France (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89met ... _la_Madone).
Thus, from a geographical point of view, TX is on the french territory.

Re: Console v3 / RDS Spy / FDM-S2 / Damn Windows 10!

I uninstalled both the standard and the Hi-Fi VB Audio to re-start from scratch. Then, I only re-installed the basic one. Well, it indeed decodes but in a rather random way (sometimes the BER level remains at 0%, sometimes it barely exceeds 90 or 80% and suddendly jumps to a very good value). See sc...

Re: Console v3 / RDS Spy / FDM-S2 / Damn Windows 10!

Below are captures showing the properties of my current Hi-Fi Cable (working) and VB Audio 'basic' cable.
Why shouldn't the latter be OK ?

Re: DAB Portables Review

I have a Pure Elan E3 and I find it pretty fine. No external antenna jack though. I don't know if it's as good as Roberts Play or the DPR69 in terms of sensitivity, but in my mountainous region with very few MUX nearby (the closest one is 100 km away), I get 3, which was unexpected ! It's very easy ...

Re: What bandwidth is needed for RDS - revisited?

Il also depends on the level of modulation.
A low / very low very level will allow decoding at 110-120 kHz BW (especially with a talk program).

The settings on the RDS encoder itself are also to be taken into account.
