Re: New TV Tower in ISTANBUL - Turkey

The new TV tower is still not finished. No news when it finally will be finished. Frequencies are unchanged. The basic structure of the tower seems to be finished.

Re: New TV Tower in ISTANBUL - Turkey

Nick, you may receive other stations from TUR on 87.5
This means in Istanbul ALL even frequencies from 87.6 to 108.0 will be used.
95.1 Risalet Radyo is already using 95.2 (PI 55FB). Heavy interference by Ülke Radyo (95.1) and Slowtürk (95.3)

Re: New TV Tower in ISTANBUL - Turkey

I don’t understand your question: “Will this change the local coverage from this site?” At present all 103 transmitters from Camlica hill are on air with high or medium power and cover Istanbul province and beyond. It is intended to limit the power from the new TV tower to 5 kW (tx power?). Only TRT...

Re: 89.4 unid for Kurt in Istanbul

Hi Peter I could not hear any ID in your recording on 89.4, but found a possible location in Al Malikiah about 45km west of your QTH. Yesterday I listened to Rudaw FM and Rudaw Musik. I recorded more then 10 jingles. The one in your recording is the worst to be identified. Rudaw FM announces the fre...

Re: Where on Earth is Peter?

I IDed at least "Musik 107.7" in your clip. I tried to identify the station on satellite and your clip sounded quite familiar to me. On Turksat they use audiotracks of "RUDAW TV" SID 50008, VPID 5008, APID 5208 and 5308 (Musik) They are also on Hotbird 11317V/27500, SID 17627, VPID 1027, APID 1327 a...

Re: SDR Question

Thanks a lot for your replies. I am looking for a new receiver for quite some time, but it is quite difficult to find something suitable here in Turkey. Some years ago I got two USB TV sticks from Germany, but it turned out that they had the wrong chip and could not be used for SDR. Since then I gav...
