Re: Dx from inside an Aeroplane.

Buon pomeriggio Franco, thank you for the thought! Much appreciated! I received 106,8 R.24 during this flight, yet might have mislabeled the recordings and posted wrong one. Had doubts myself too, everytime I heard R.24 they were talking politics. There were so many clips from this scan and my radio...

Re: Dx from inside an Aeroplane.

I was able to scan during my flight from Warsaw to Malta (April 2016) with a portable radio in an mp3 player. Luckily it has record function, and here's what I got as the route proceeded (some nice DXs!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzjsTp59VTU One DX in particular - Radio Vatican in Swahili! ht...

Great to read some of you picked Poland last week! Awesome season on the whole continent:) If some of you have recordings that may contain suspected Polish signal, don't hestitate to post.

Re: FM DXing in Central Europe

Slowly more reports of that tropo are coming in.

Lukasz, who did _The_1800_km_DX_ then, updated his FM DX collection:

FM DXing in Central Europe

Did not find relevant thread, so I'm starting this one with Polish FM DXs. There's a good occasion to do so. Perhaps you saw the traffic over norteastern Europe in recent days on DXMaps site. It was first time I saw such reddish hue over Finland on Hepburn's tropo forecast page... They did not promi...

Re: New Warsaw station (lpfm)

Hey Tim. It's nothing new. The signal you picked is Radio Jutrzenka ("The Dawning Star"),or full name: Polskie Radio Armii Krajowej Jutrzenka (Polish Army Radiostation Jutrzenka) - thus Radio AK in the PS. Contrary to what the name may suggest, the station does belong neither to our national broadca...

Re: unknown propagation 8/8/17

Well, an airplane flying low won't produce long range Asc reflection. My furtherst happened when a big aircraft was 11000 above ground. Airplanes in your line of sight can of course boost signals you constantly receive weaker. It must have been ionospheric. Airscatter at such distances will not happ...

A jingle with frequency 100,2 in some place of a name ending with "-ence".
"(...)ence sur cent point deux".

A relay of 100,2 // 90,0?

Re: unknown propagation 8/8/17

I'm afraid, without more reception results at the same time (maybe other frequencies from the same tx or neighbouring ones), the tx cannot be determined here. Valencia in Tirol? That is like 1100kms! It was not AS for sure, which reaches up to 900kms with extreme hi-gain antenna (Konrad managed it, ...

Re: *** AURORA - NOW! ***

Even music will do.

Now two things - if the audio is distorted and always noisy - it might have been plain Aurora.
If the audio is clear, audible and not distorted - Au-Sporadic E may be the cause.

@Nick Do you have a recording of that 89,3? I can check for you if this was any station from Poland or the region.

Thanks, that's a very noble thing you do, Tim.

One more compilation I recorded in London in 2015: Pirate's IDs
-please note most of them saying they are an online radiostation, totally oblivious or contrary to being pirates.

Re: 01 Sept 2017 - double hop reception

Clearly, there is only one signal. But... modulated with two feeds at a time - main, which is the loudest and second - slightly delayed, in the background. Probably some kind of problem with the transmitter, which often happens to RR in the OIRT band. Please note, that audio levels difference of bot...

Re: BORNHOLM DX

Hi and thanks. It indeed is a good question. I think it is a regional thing, probably connected to a prevailing western air masses circulation. My base QTH is central Poland, near Warsaw - flat lowlands and the "tropo directivity" applies here as well. It was not so long ago when I finally received ...
