Re: Ideal MWDX Equipment?

I found the AOR AR7030 superb for MW DXing. I remember hearing Brazil and other South Americans at night using a long wire going up the roof of the house.

Sadly less than a year after buying it (late 90s) QRM levels suddenly increased so much that MW DXing was rendered impossible.

I've just tried it again and it's fine now. It must have been a problem at their end.

SDR.hu - problems

Hi all. I've just tried a couple of remote SDRs on sdr.hu and I'm having the same issue on both: the S meter is reading zero and there is no audio. However there are clearly signals present according to the waterfall. Is anyone else having this issue? If not, I wonder if it has anything to do with t...

Re: NHK2 747

MW conditions must be excellent. When I was driving home a couple of hours ago I checked 1377 kHz on the car radio and China was peaking up at GOOD levels. I've never heard it that strong before.

Re: Hungary: Rádió 1 Balaton and Helikon Nagykanizsa are off

Music FM 89,5 was in fact the only interesting radio station left in my opinion. cant get anything out of Retro FM, old music I have heard a thousand times. Well, Petöfi is not bad but Music FM 89,5 was the best after the (ridiculous) closure of Rise FM. Also the amazing coverage up and down the Da...

Re: Tropo 17/11/18

Nice log Catherine! Most likely it would be Classic FM Sydvestjylland from Bramming/Hedemarksvej 1A with just 1.6 kW.

Re: Tropo 17/11/18

If it's Danish it'll be Nova from Varde/Nordenskov/Kærgårdsvej 41B according to FMLIST.

Not a lot happening here, and I'm not expecting much more as the zone of tropo is moving north, away from me.

Re: Bonjour everyone!

Welcome to the forum Brieuc. I'm looking forward to reading your logs at such a fantastic DX location.

Saint-Brieuc is fairly regular here during tropo to the south or SW.

Thanks Peter.

I've had to switch it off as the heterodynes were giving the XYL a headache! :oops:

Plus a Canadian on 840 with a mention of Calgary so this must be CFCW Camrose, Alberta.

Re: Tropo > Germany & Denmark

Tropo is much better now but it's not as Hep is predicting. It seems to be on a roughly north-south axis with e.g. strong signals from Holme Moss as well as good signals down into central France. As I type this France Bleu Creuse is in on 94.3 with full RDS. No sign of Germany or Denmark.

Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

It's brewing. Around 6-7 pm Luxy was doing well with full RDS on 100.7 for a while, and Lille was very strong. Unfortunately there was digital QRM affecting quite a few channels. Later on when I checked the QRM had gone but conditions to the Continent had nosedived. Inter-UK paths are still enhanced...

Re: A few unid SpE catch from Hungary

Hi Laszlo.

The OM on your 88.0 recording mentions Tunis and Gabes, so I think it's probably Radio Zitouna FM from Djebel Zaghouan.

The traditional Turkish folk music on 90.8 may be TRT Türkü.

Re: Tropo 25/10/18

Very impressive Peter. Mind you, Germans sound fine at 56 kHz bandwidth anyway due to their lower modulation. OK, as promised, here are some recordings made earlier from various stations: https://app.box.com/s/rcrppg04bih47ql2t25kfvghuus1mekb There are several recordings made at the narrowest 56 kHz...
