Re: Help please with UNID Spaniard on 94.2

Thanks Jorge.

I'd be amazed if the phone-in station really was from the Madrid area. The tropo was favouring Galicia, so I assumed it was from this region of Spain. Is there nothing from there that would match?

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Thanks for the confirmation Jorge.

That tropo at the end of 2019 was the first time I have logged this station, as well as Radio Super Amara at the other end of the band on 108.0 MHz.

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Hi Jorge. The two clips were recorded on December 30th 2019, the first one at 0044 UTC and the second at 0142 UTC.

I'm pretty sure it was Radio 4G as I recorded some other reception on 87.5 with a confirmed ID:

Re: Short Break

Thanks John. Temperature is still 37.5C. That's right on the borderline level between normal and a low-level fever.

Re: Short Break

Well I'm wondering if I've got something now. Since late evening yesterday I've had a periodic feeling that a cough is lurking in the background. I've been in work today as I've felt absolutely fine, but I checked my temperature when I got home and it was 37.5C. I do feel a little warmer than usual....

Re: Windy weekend

Already parked the 9.2 NE so the wind will be behind it. Fingers crossed this storm isn't too destructive!

Re: Crazy Asian conditions

Yep! The noise increases as I reach the house parking outside. Besides which, I don't have a proper MW receiver. I do have fun occasionally tuning in on remote SDRs at nice quiet sites though!

Re: Crazy Asian conditions

I've heard decent peaks from CNR1 on 1377 driving home from work the last 2 or 3 evenings. I tend to use that as an indicator of conditions, as I can't do MW DX at home.

Re: Tropo imminent - UK

I was going to mention the extremely high pressure too. Just the other day I made my first mention of DXing to the guy I'm getting friendly with. If a high pressure record gets broken and we get a good tropo it could give us an interesting conversation and he'll realise how much of a geek I am. :ro...

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Thanks guys. I've logged it as a presumed Radio 4G.

Thanks for moving the topic too John. I hadn't realised it had gone on the MW Unids!

Re: Tropo 05/01/20

Yes some weak signals from a few more distant French sites today e.g. Clermont-Ferrand, Ussel-Meymac, Lyon/Mont Pilat and Pic du Midi. Not a great deal else to report though. PS over the last couple of nights a rasping buzz peaking SSW from a dirty SMPSU has been in evidence, possibly a lamp-post ju...

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Thanks for that. There are some talk programmes listed on Radio 4G's website that look like a match for that sort of content, so I'll presume it was them.

UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Hi all. Can anyone ID this station please, logged during the recent tropo? I had logged Radio 4G on this channel during the lift, but they were playing music on each occasion. It could be them again, although this was all talk: Clip 1: https://app.box.com/s/egv8u3wa7t6ctj24raetqckizp82z1i3 Clip 2: h...

Re: Spanish tropo 2nd January

Yes some Spanish tropo noted this morning before going to work, and still going on now from the Basque region of the north coast.

Tropo 31st Dec 2019

Superb conditions to Spain continue this morning with some strong signals. Most interesting log so far is Bizkaia Irratia in Euskara/Basque on 91.9, listed with just 100 watts. Whether it's actually running that power though, is another matter.

Could be the last good day here.

Re: Tropo 30/12/19

Radio Super Amara from San Sebastián logged a little earlier on 108.0 MHz. It peaked SE and NW oddly. The most interesting thing about this is apparently it's a supermarket radio station! Thanks to Lucas/TransistorFR for his suggestion and help in IDing this.

I wonder what power it puts out?

Re: Tropo 30/12/19

Superb conditions to the north coast of Spain here now, with some personal firsts logged. Most interesting is a station on 87.5 playing music. I have the ID recorded.
