Re: Tropo: Algeria FMs

Hi Nick

Received at this location to date:
88.4 Chaine 3, Chrea, Algeria CHAINE_3

Other Chrea network tx's received with strong stereo signals appear not to have RDS yet.

Mike Fallon updates his list regularly here:

Re: Tropo: Algeria FMs

Strong tropo all day today in the Western Med. 22 stations heard in SE Spain on FM from Algeria, some drowning out local transmitters, many in stereo and with RDS (where it exists). Even the car radio was picking up interference from multiple Algeria tx's.

Re: 106.2 Surely not?

Coincidentally, there is a Ghanaian pirate in London 'Power Radio' that broadcasts religious progs and was last noted (not by me) on 106.0. Tel: 0208 123 7059. Mobile: 0794 028 6788.

Re: Another music loss

Also lost is Mott The Hoople drummer Dale Griffin. Bowie wrote 'All The Young Dudes' and gave it to them. I heard the news today on Bay Radio from Javea.

Tropo: Algeria FMs

Algeria FM signals crossing the Med particularly strongly this morning. Chrea strong enough to register RDS on a portable here in Spain. Tessala almost as strong. Nador and other tx sites weaker.

One afternoon this summer, not looking for DX, accidentally hearing the news bulletin from BBC Radio 4 on 93.5 on my little portable radio in RDS stereo with no background noise .... listening 1,000 miles away in southeast Spain.

Re: Tropo (maybe) from Spain to Germany/Czech/Slovakia

Just checked conditions again and FM is back to normal now. The opening started to fade at about 1715 local time. I was getting too excited to think of posting an alert. Morocco stations were heard too (not usual here as Sierra Nevada mountains in the way), enough to trip the RDS light but not long ...

Re: Was there E Skip about today?

Could well be Algeria. Yesterday afternoon, here in SE Spain (190km from the Algeria coast), I had been tuning across the FM band and unusually there was no sign of Algerian stations. Then, suddenly at about 1800 local time, they appeared out of nowhere in perfect stereo with no background noise. Ji...

Hi Nick

I find that the most useful (as in: updated and accurate) list of London pirates at present is here http://www.transmissionzero.co.uk/radio ... ate-radio/ and it shows Devotion on 108.0 .

Hi Andy. Radio 4G is on 87.5 in Murcia. I cannot hear it in my location due to a local tx on 87.6. However, I regularly refer to a fantastic list of FM stations audible in Cartagena, Murcia at http://www.titoct200.com/sRadio.php which Antonio Gómez de Salazar y de Rivas updates on an almost daily ba...
