Re: XHData D-808

I don't wish to take from the undoubted positives of the radio, but one issue with the XHDATA D808 I have used - there is a surprisingly long pause of complete silence of just over 4 seconds when switching to MW or LW , or even switching between MW and LW. Switching to its other bands this mute paus...

Re: Tropo France 24/10/18

near Cork Ireland: have been getting a number of French outlets, including (good enough for RDS) 103.1 "BLEUARMO" last night (good around 9PM) and again this morning above band II (but just using FM band vertical dipole aerial): Also I could hear easily still active UK paging frequencies 153.0250 an...

2.4 Hz beat on 1053kHz (Talksport)

I'm currently getting a "rapid fading" type beat effect of about 2.4 - 2.5 Hz on 1053 kHz, there the whole time to some extent sometimes quite pronounced. (and its definitely between Talksport 1053 transmitters, not anything else on 1053kHz ) Is it the Talksport Droitwich transmitter that is around ...

Re: US "Talking House Transmitters ( 100 milliwatts)

am now on 1680 on the principal that higher is better with small aerials like this Though if you used it on your originally planned 1610, a good proportion of car (and other) radios over here would be able to receive it (on 1611). maybe someone local might tune in!

Re: Sick as a parrot!

Why am I as sick as a parrot? 1) In the afternoon on 1008 KHz GrootNieuwesRadio (HOL) was received completely interference free! At my QTH, in the garden, when there is no obvious interference - it is weak and noisy. Probably more to do with being right beside seawater than less noise at the locati...

Re: does 108.0 look this bad everywhere?

some TV set-top boxes / DVD players etc radiate carriers on 108.0 (and other multiples of 27.0MHz), if any unmodulated carriers are received on 108.0, look nearby!

Re: DRM on 1071kHz last night (France?)

This DRM transmission is active again on 1071, noted in the past few days after apparently a long absence. AFAIK It is the only MW transmitter (of any mode) currently on air in France as 1593 has fallen silent recently. (as per other thread)

The other day, I received ITV3 audio on 86.5MHz. I don't know where is it come from, but It was certainly ITV3 audio carrier. Link below:

Probably someone's wireless headphone device ??? A frequency in what would of course be the Japanese FM band.

Re: Band 1 - Who's left this year?

Might be worthwhile anyone in the London area (I assume) keeping an eye scanning/monitoring on Band 1 for tests of a vision carrier with an AM audio carrier (offset by −3.5 MHz ), or maybe either on its own initially, if the plans on the link below come to fruition? (and of course do report in this ...

Re: Bretagne 5 on 1593 off air

Appears to be gone again from 1593kHz ???

I noticed it apparently absent last night and again checked a few minutes ago, not audible

PS
some discussion (in French) here about the recent disappearance of 1593 :

Re: 120-ish MHz Low Pass filter (DAB killer)

Does your OIRT receiver use a 10.7MHz I.F. with a Local Oscillator that's 10.7MHz above the received frequency? I assume the images are due to 3rd harmonic of the Local oscillator and that being then 10.7MHz away from a DAB MUX. (just figuring out why it is happening) the BBC ‎12B (225.648 MHz ) MUX...
