Re: 31 July 2020 - It Ain't Half Hot Mum!

Third hottest day recorded, only 10 Aug 2003 and "Furnace Thursday" from late July last year ahead of today. This plume already eroding, Heathrow down to 32 now when you would expect the temp to be peaking. I hate to think what temp we might have had if the airmass had stayed put for a couple more d...

Re: UnID from 29 May

Thanks. After a chat in the Discord group I thought I'd check 89.9, which is normally occupied by Radio 2 from Wenvoe. At the same time (1012z) I had the 9362 on 90.3, R2 was taken out by something Scandinavian sounding. After a bit of friggery with RDS Spy (I had to keep resetting to clear the buff...

UnID from 29 May

Just going through my decodes from 29th May.
Had this: 90.3, PI 9362, PS TINGVARP - not listed on FMList unless I'm being completely stupid.

Anyone got any ideas on this one please?

UNID PI 2020 Sol Radio 89.0

See Mike Fallon's reception of this station yesterday : https://youtu.be/kKzIfQgXEsQ I had the same station, at pretty much the same time, but it's not listed in FM List. Greece and Albania, with an occasional side dish of Italy were in at the time. Mike thinks it may be Israel, probably due to a go...

Re: Crete reception 12th July?

I didn't hear it too well.. for the reasons I explained above. It would have been so much easier if I'd have got a recording of it! The possible candidates in Romania are all flea power and on a different beam heading, about 25 degrees off. I never had any signals from that direction all opening lon...

Re: Crete reception 12th July?

Hmmm.... Does it still have the "92,1 FM" as part of the rolling PI? I am thinking a mis-read PI code which happens occasionally here, as I did get that part of the PS 100% Nothing else listed has that in their PS, and I did get another Greek station on that exact beam heading at exactly the same ti...

Israel and possible Palestine 25th May

Been going through some old recordings and doing a sweep job on PI codes to see if there is anything interesting. On 25th May we had an opening which began with Balkans, and Israel came through from Jerusalem near the start. About 20 minutes in, I found a previously missed reception of MaKan from Be...

Re: Crete reception 12th July?

Dave - it was around 1943 or so. LOL at the Practical Television anecdote!
I just hope she goes back to sitting on my knee reading out PI codes as they appear on the screen.....

Ben - I would be interested in whatever you can find out about Skai's PI codes! Thanos thinks they should be as published.

Crete reception 12th July?

During the evening opening on Sunday 12th, I had reception on 92.1 PI code 123C, and a PS of " 92,1 FM". It was OM talk I was not able to listen at the time as I was being severely distracted by my 3 year old daughter about to unplug the USB leads out of the back of the PC (!) and generally getting ...

Re: ES Italy

Opening still rumbling on to parts of the UK.
Been dead here since 1520, however, so quite a sharp cut-off as you go west.
