Re: ES 12/07/2018

Thursday night (12th) heard a brief burst of meteor scatter (well that was it sounded like) of something for maybe a couple of seconds coming over a weak relatively local signal on 103.0 just after 10PM I had on car radio whilst parked here in the southern of Ireland (Cork) , dont know what it was (...

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?

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...

the local autoroute 107.7MHz transmitter might have just abruptly gone off the air (leaving through a distant signal), though googling I cannot find any NRG 107.7??

Re: Tesco RAD113B

. I do not understand the architecture of the device but it does not seem to use a Local Oscillator or have hardware IF filtering. The device has FM stereo outputs. On FM there IS a local oscillator which is approx just 0.125 MHz away, above or below, the received frequency, on these type of receiv...

The radio has direct frequency entry, but there is no "enter" button, so there is a delay before the station is tuned in You'd expect that the Play/Pause button would function as an Enter button for direct frequency entry (I assume you have tried it ) ??
