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

Re: How many stations using RDS ?

this was a very interesting experience. the station is in mono (at least not in Western stereo) and you could hear the audio signal (the tone of their modulation) getting a bit higher each time I received RDS. so during the RDS signal popping up, I heard a slight beep in the audio signal and more h...

Hello Peter, I am interested in this item for listening into OIRT band through SpE. Can I ask you how you can switch from 87.5-108 Mhz to 64-108 Mhz mode into D808 ?
