Re: UK Analog shutdown delayed till 2032

I've had one low power Norwegian log here via Es since the switchover in Norway: https://app.box.com/s/hh6ags8t2wr6ipdbuxq1jrpuwe0z4a6p - 87.8 Nea Radio Selbu/Tydal Forbordsfjellet 2 1545 km (66 watts) PI F688 22.7.17 1046 UTC It looks like it's now listed with 398 watts so it's worth looking out for.

Re: Mixes

Yes that's quite a nice track with poignant words.

Marea Stamper (The Blessed Madonna) has a show on Rinse FM called 'We Still Believe'. I think I have one or two liked/saved on Soundcloud because she plays a pretty eclectic mix of music.

Re: Tropo Alert

I had tropo from N France, Belgium and Luxembourg late Thursday evening/very early Friday morning. A quick check at 1.30 am BST (0030 UTC) on 2.4.21 revealed Radio 100,7 (LUX) with full RDS.

Other than that there's been some inter-UK tropo. BBC Essex on 103.5 was strong earlier this morning.

Yes 94.4 is Basque/Euskadi. It'll be Euskadi Irratia from Jaizkibel.

Re: UNID UK

100.4 also has a French station, which would be one of the commercial networks probably.

Re: Another 1470 - EE announcing 94.2 FM

That's odd. The US and Canada only use odd frequencies e.g. 94.1, 94.3, 94.5 etc, so if the frequency announcement mentions 94.2, it can't be from the US.

Re: UNID UK

Your 103.6 is The Beat London (ID at 17 secs), which is a community station in Harlesden, NW London. It only puts out 23 watts. A superb catch!

Re: UNID UK

102.2 must be Lincs FM. The ID mentions Newark, a town in east Nottinghamshire which is in the coverage area.

Re: Automating FM-DXing

Still live one channel-at-a-time DXing here. I don't have the space in the 'shack' (which is actually in the living room) to add an SDR and associated computer, so I still DX the old way, even if the receiver is far more capable than your traditional old analogue tuners. Despite this, I've still man...

Here's a fantastic and highly influential Italo disco track from 1982, which was an inspiration for the first house tracks in Chicago:

Here's an excellent mix by Santiago Salazar that I've really been enjoying:

Re: Mixes

Sorry, no that one does nothing for me. There's no 'acid house riff' in it either. Acid, by definition needs to have the squelchy, squibbly sounds of the Roland TB-303, like this:

Armando - Land Of Confusion

And a more recent one:

Re: Mixes

Out of those ones Ben, yes, the Apparat - OUTLIER (Solomun Remix) track is OK, but I'm not keen on the others. The Bronski Beat one is familiar from the 80s, and the remix isn't drastically different really. I was into trace from about 1991-94 maybe, because for me, by the mid 90s it became horribly...

Re: Mixes

Again, the intro in that last one is OK but when it gets going it doesn't do anything for me. It's not really surprising considering we got into electronic dance music at completely different times and have a different mindset. However, here's another one that you may like from Orbital. It's about 2...
