Re: Possible tropo on Sunday and Monday

Just been having a look and found what I presume was B5 Aktuell on 106.9 from Grünten (German news px) but it has since faded out. Apart from that SE England is well up.

Re: Perseids 2019

Is there anything left on 87.75? I thought they'd all gone digital and moved to UHF.

Re: RDS on Algerian stations

Hi Dave. Yes the Akfadou tx does seem to have lost its RDS, the same with Radio Boumerdes on 92.6.

The last time I noted RDS on Akfadou was last year.

Re: Radio ???? 88.5

Yes it is Radio Hamburg. There's a similar sung jingle at 2 min 12 sec on this recording:

Re: UNID German on 87.7 via MS

Thanks very much atfmdx. You are indeed correct. I found the Fun Radio playlist for that time on 28.7.19 and the song matches. I was thrown by what sounded like 'Neue Hit', together with the low modulation, so I presumed it was German.

Re: Unkown FM DX receive today

Hi Pascal. This looks like a Libyan to me. Indeed Al Manar, listed on 87.7 from Misratah, has the following PS names: *T.E.M*_ __OPERA_ __PLUS__ _5000W__ It used to be on 87.5 last year, and this log makes me wonder if it's either moved back to 87.5, or another tx has started on that channel. AFAIK ...

UNID German on 87.7 via MS

Hi all. Can anyone get anything from this clip please? It was from an MS burst recorded on July 28th, and I can hear 'Neue Hit' and part of what sounds like a jingle: https://app.box.com/s/neu0k5j5hcqq21c94j07ic39otsktxz5 I managed to find the playlist for Hitradio Ö3, and that didn't match, so I su...

Re: Perseids 2019

^Sounds like a peak via aircraft scatter to me. The capture ratio of FM probably meant that it briefly passed the threshold and managed to briefly override the semi-local signal.

Re: African station on 88.7 from 23.07.2017

Wow! That sounds most intriguing. Who would be on the same azimuth as Egypt but double-hop? Ethiopia?

I hope you can get some sort of ID on this one. It sounds super exotic.

Re: unid 88.8

Hi David. I think the "Muzika" bit is part of the lyrics of the song rather than an ID. I think the word sounds similar, but isn't actually "Muzika." What time (UTC) was the reception? The song sounds like Eastern European rock, so maybe it was Rádio Anténa Rock from Nitra in SVK?

Re: Es Band 2 27 Jul

Some very nice DX into Arctic Finland a bit earlier on with Kolari logged on 92.2 (YLE Yksi) and 103.8 (YLE Sámi Radio). In fact the opening commenced with YLE Yksi on 87.6 from Posio, which is also a long way north and rarely heard down here.

A most interesting lift!

Re: Help with language

The cultural service would be SRR Radio România Cultural, of course. ;)

Actualități is a 'full service' so has news, music, talk, sports etc.

Hi Julius. It sounds like Romanian, so I'd put money on it being SRR Radio România Actualități from Craiova.

Re: Es OIRT 12-07-2019

Tim, I'd guess that 71.75 may be UR 2 Radio Promin' from Ternopil'. They play pop & rock from what I remember.
