Re: RAW 87.5 + kids pirating on PMR 87.4375

Thanks Tim., very strange. I usually get Welsh skip truck drivers (from what I can tell) on those channels during a lift. It can get a bit earthy.

Re: E Skip 20th July 2019

Maybe it was SR P1 from Sweden? It has big txes on all three frequencies you mention. Yes, I managed to find a recording of it on their site and matched it to my audio. It still won't translate as Swedish though, only as Icelandic, not that it makes much sense, so an Icelandic section of their news...

Re: E Skip 20th July 2019

I had Iceland RÚV Rás 1 for about 20 seconds at 16:54 on 88, 88.3 and also 87.6 - which FM List tells me is not used in Iceland. Maybe it wasn't Iceland but the Google translate app on my phone translates the speech as Icelandic, so...? I'll see if I can find out more.

Re: London Pirate/RSL/Community scans July 2019

What sense does it make to rebroadcast Gold on FM?? Was this just a very localized signal ? If so maybe someone who wants to hear the station on non-DAB+ receivers, or re-transmitting onto FM for reception within a building where reception is bad? Just speculating Some more info here - http://www.r...

Re: DX Alerts (7 July 2019)

Iceland seems to be coming in for a few people on FM List and I think I got RUV on 87.7 too, but will have to check my files later.

Re: Tropo June 30 2019

Back on topic: People had been reporting that they could hear the pirate 'Raw Innocence' on 87.5 all over the UK during the tropo. I was picking it up here and counted 5 London/East pirates in total over those few days. The tropo died out for me yesterday and was replaced by some interference, possi...

I managed to log a few this morning. A few PIs from RDS Spy but no PS. I'm no good at finding which TX is reaching me when there are several of the same station on one freq either, so I log those as UNIDs.

Re: That dreaded day has come.

Have you investigated how far away you can hear the interference in all directions? My guess would be that it seems strong around those two houses but it's possibly further away, if there are no Chinese people in the street. On a Tecsun radio, you'd need to see close to 70 dB on the meter to be sure...

18/6/2015 - More Es old IQ files

I have been going through old files again and found a couple of interest. In one file, there is a station on 88 playing a test tone, and in the other a station with very wide modulation which is playing Disco and gives a PI of 5006. https://mega.nz/#F!7V1hmIzA!XU1pyhGjxGYZblJRrfTZHA Any ideas?
