Re: Es: Moscow

Anybody know what might be broadcasting dead air on 105.0 at this time? It was strong enough for stereo, looked like it might have RDS, but not strong enough to decode it. Also, the frequency was quite unstable.

Re: 88.9 UK Bass Southampton - with a shoutout to Nick G

I have read that UK Raw has changed frequency since Flex FM got a license. It was still on 87.5 when this other pirate appeared near Bristol though.

Easy Network PI5361 from Germany on 87.6 here, being taken over a bit by schlager music from I don't know where.
Easy Network is from Italy
Ah, found a site that just used flags to show where stations are from, must've confused it with the German flag.

Re: 88.9 UK Bass Southampton - with a shoutout to Nick G

I'm curious to know if anybody heard anything on 87.5 from Bristol direction a couple of months back. Somebody from London heard it was reaching Reading and drove from there to take it off, so it didn't last long. Got told about it a couple of weeks late, and I hadn't been tuning around much so didn...

Re: Rather Large Tropo > Netherlands

Raw from London just gave a shout out to somebody in Portsmouth. They are coming in "crystal clear" there, apparently.

Re: pirate update midlands/north

I was in Brum / Wolves area a few weeks back. 89.8 and 90.0 both had pirates on, 90.0 was just dull pop you could hear on Capital or Heart with no jingles or anything.

Re: FENZ 87.9

I posted this in another thread, but I'll post it here again. I was getting this on the 7th. It's weak but you can tell the audio is dropping now and then because the carrier is visible and becomes audible when you have NR switched on (as in the video below), so it's possibly a pirate using an inter...

Re: What the F*** ?? 87.5

Hmm. I'd assumed this was connected to the 80s Jukebox thing, but seems like there are bluetooth iTrips out there that are strong enough to travel a bit during DX conditions. Is that right? It would be something like this: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/belkin-f8m117cw-in-car-aircast-auto-fm-transmitter-...

Re: Tropo > Central Germany

No germans here I'm afraid. I've had the usual weak tropo bottom of the band: The London pirates I've been hearing all summer during tropo - 87.7 and 88 Other signals that have barely been detectable before but are a bit stronger tonight - 87.8 in French, 87.9 which seems to have had two stations on...

Re: 87.5 "all 80's .co.uk"

spectrum shows wk carriers @ 19,38 & 57khz but no rds here so far That'll be a Chinese rig, all of which are just iTrips with amplifiers bolted on. The 57kHz is possibly a harmonic from the stereo pilot, or maybe there's a slim chance it's a fake RDS to make some tuners lock to the signal when scan...

Re: What the F*** ?? 87.5

"The bluetooth is ready to pair." They could also just be using something like this to get the audio to the transmitter - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Adaptor-Latency/dp/B01B4W40VC/ref=sr_1_1/252-6837224-1258230?ie=UTF8&qid=1472234426&sr=8-1&keywords=bluetooth+stream I wou...

Re: What the F*** ?? 87.5

Possibly, an "iTrip" with Bluetooth that has become disconnected from the device that's supplying it's audio. Or a pirate using a similar device.

Re: Intense tropo enhancement

Hello! I'm a lurker, this is my first post. I don't have a very good set up for DX, but I do pull some things in when the conditions are right. Tonight, I've got Klara on 90.4 rock steady, it's been there at least an hour now.
