Re: For demanding FM DX'er ... (18 bits ADC SDR)

Just received my HF+ too :-)
First test on the french paraglading beacons (143.9875 - 1W) to test sensitivity : the noise level reading is about -137dBm running the HF+ and -117dBm running the ELAD S2 (using the same coax of course).

Did you notice the same 20 dBm discrepancy ?

Thanks for the input Jim. This HF+ sounds very promising (I also own an ELAD S2) :P
Mine is also on the way ...

Re: Linrad and FM DX

In this video, Leif runs Windows 7 I guess (but from what I read, it should be OK with W8 and 10).

For those who missed the latest clip by Leif : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8_0XIbKCzk
It's a pity it's a bit complicated to use ... Sounds very effective.

Re: Airspy R2/Körner 19.3 Yagi. Remote Access

Hi Mike Patrick - 100.1 was probably Classic FM from Sutton Coldfield. BBC R2 is lower in the band, around 88-91 MHz Well, I reported BBC R2 because I heard "BBC Radio 2" (I mean I did not check any database before or after). Pretty weird ... Probably what you call "a senior moment" ! Sorry for the ...

Hi Mike,

Just gave it a try and found it great !
On 100.1, fun to see BBC R2 and France Bleu Normandie fighting.

Thanks for sharing.

SDR#1626 & RDS Data Logger (beta 17) : issue

Hi mates ! I sent a mail to Andy about this, but someone could confirm (or not) here ... I downloaded the latest SDR# version (1626) and it seems that RDS DATA LOGGER (beta 17) won't work. No problem with an old release though (v1466). But as I purchased the new Airspy HF+, I'd like run a more recen...

Re: Perseids 2017

Thanks Peter !
H or V polar ? This will be my first real MS test in a quiet FM area.

BTW, I couldn't get the Virgo java applet to work :-(

Re: Perseids 2017

What kind of antenna would you recommand ? Is a dipole OK or would a 5 elts yagi be significantly better for this specific task ? What about polarisation ?
I'm planning a /P operation in a quiet area.

Re: A couple of UNIDs 96.9 / 90.9

Many thanks Zack, Nick for your hints, and PFM for your in-depth analysis ! I just uploaded slightly longer recording of both files ; hope they will provide more clues even if reception is pretty poor (earphones are more than useful !). 90.9 : http://hebergeurfichier.com/download/0980fd6112735d0a44f...

Hi mates ! Could someone help ID these 2 UNIDs : http://hebergeurfichier.com/download/0bec2c2b507c1b734ed05ace8dc1e81e.html The 1st one was heard on 96.9 during an opening towards HRV / SRB / GRC The 2nd one (after the tones) was received on 90.9, still with many greek stations all around.

Re: Apps for Android

I haven't tried FMlist on my new mobile yet. StationList runs smoothly and provides what I need when searching for a frequency or a given station, though not as detailed as FMlist of course.

Just downloaded this one (2/4/6m alerts) : https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ense&hl=de
and this one (DX cluster) : http://www.dxpocket.com/

Both seem pretty fine.

Apps for Android

Hi Mates Do you know / use some useful apps dedicated to FM / VHF (DX) ? I'm running StationList for Android by Jürgen Bartels. It allows to export your logs to FMlist. http://zeiterfassung.3sdesign.de/stationlist-m.htm (also available for MW DX). Is there any app showing current FM / VHF conditions ?

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks a lot for identification.
A nice catch indeed, though not that far.

Re: Andorra received

Personally, I only use the DXCC list for the counting, whatever the type of listening (FM, MW or NDB DX'ing).
On the NDBlist, we have a specific classification showing ORK, SHE, SCY as mentionned above but this is an "unofficial" and specific list created for NDBlist users.
