Re: longwave 183 Felsberg off

But I don't understand why Europe 1 never turned his frequency into a "multiple of 9" one: I reckon that the most of common receivers and car radios are not able to tune on exactly 183 kHz and that didn't help the audience to stay numerous. There would be arguments for and against. Moving down to 1...

Re: XHDATA D-808 Longwave fix?

not about LW but SW : I notice the low end of shortwave / HF on the XHDATA D808 can have images of strong shortwave signals on much higher frequencies. These images are more likely to be noticed (depending on frequency) on the wider AM bandwidth settings as they may not fall exactly on frequency. Th...

Re: XHDATA D-808 Longwave fix?

You could simply put a greater number of windings on its ferrite rod, so it will work properly on LW. However you will loose a big portion of MW which will become deaf. It is impossible for the one winding that it has on the ferrite rod to properly cover LW as well as MW (which is why it goes deaf b...

Re: Rádió 1 Győr freq. change back to basics

96,4 MHz is a good frequency in decent strength, excellent located between 96.2 Mattersburg and 96.4 SRo Bratislava. In addition, this transmitter has always caused a second output of Radio1 HU on 91.05 MHz which was even stronger. It was a local relay back then, with another transmission from the ...

Re: XHDATA D-808 unboxing includes Es

Incidentally, one small shortcut when keying in frequencies - if the frequency ends in zeros, you do not have to enter those 0s (just press FREQ and it will go to the frequency) - this works on all bands - except SW below 10MHz. So for example on FM if entering 100.0 MHz, you just have to press FREQ...

Re: Dublin close call hits June 2019

456.225 456.2250 MHz NFM (and other freqs in the 456.0-456.5 area) are for train communications in IRL, they transmit all the time, usually with a 2.28kHz pilot tone when no communications (where I am anyway). I have also heard them 456.1750 , 456.2750 , 456.3500, 456.3250 , 456.3750 , 456.4250 , 4...

Re: 101,1 MHz - CLASSIC FM (UK)

I was able to follow the whole film music soundtrack programme without even the slightest sign of fading or dropping out. Holme Moss gave a really great signal, but this was in fact the only UK frequency to be caught. The others seem to be aired via a directional antenna system. I don't see any rea...

Re: 87.8 The Rock (London) received via tropo in Southampton

Can you rule out Ireland for your 87.8 carrier Tim? This licenced community station in west county Galway (with 87.8 as one of their 2 freqs) currently closes every night at 9PM and opens at 11AM (10AM Sundays), I suspect the carrier is left on during their downtime. TX near Clifden listed as 500W h...

What sense does it make to rebroadcast Gold on FM??
Was this just a very localized signal ?

If so maybe someone who wants to hear the station on non-DAB+ receivers, or re-transmitting onto FM for reception within a building where reception is bad?
Just speculating
