New community station for Southampton on 99.8

It's Awaaz FM, for the Asian community. Signal strength is similar to Unity 101, i.e. weak but clear, so maybe from the same tx site.

Could be an interesting DX target.

Re: Tropo - N France, Belgium, SW Germany

Yes some decent tropo last night/this morning with Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, northern France from Lille across to Brest, and Spain logged (RNE Radio Clásica on 91.6 last night). Brest and Rennes were BIG signals this morning.

Re: Season review

In a word: mediocre. Not a patch on 2017, which had that amazing 3 week spell in June. Most openings were in a southerly direction towards Spain and North Africa, with little activity to the east or NE. One of the Algerian openings did produce a less common tx site, Ouargla, as well as a couple of n...

Re: Es from G and IRL logged in HNG and SVK

Logged some signals earlier from Slovakia and Poland at the bottom of the band. A nice change to get an opening to the east!

Re: Greece BOB

^Andrew Webster has had some stunning DX on FM, and his location is similar to yours. He lives on the side of a hill in NW England and his FM band is also jam-packed with locals. In big lifts many of them just get pushed aside by the DX.

Re: Es Azores

Thanks guys. Here's another recording of R80 Rádio on 90.2, also from Pico da Barossa (same site as Antena 3 on 87.7), listed with just 500 watts: https://app.box.com/s/dj5l6dixp1fks2n72xqpn6i3nbr3dpb2 The ID was confirmed with the webstream link on FMLIST. Does anyone know if the listed power is co...

Re: Southampton Common Files 04-08-2018

88.9 - probably France Inter Le Havre.
89.0 - that sounds like France Culture's style of programming. Le Mans is virtually permanent here on scatter.

Re: Southampton Common Files 04-08-2018

One of the French signals on 88.2 may very well be RCF from Le Havre. Even with my horizontal Yagi it's quite regular here during cross-Channel tropo.

BBC Radio 2 on 89.8 is probably the Hemdean relay near Reading.

Re: Boston Pirates

What time was it Tim? ALL FM have a show on from 5 pm - 7pm 'The Saturday Jam', and according to their website:

"Tune in to DJtwinny every Saturday from 5pm till 7pm here on ALLfm. Playing the best in House, Grime, UKG, Caribbean and Drum and bass music."

Could it have been that?

Re: Es Italy

It seemed to be coming from Sicily, so further south than Sardinia. I went out a little later but I don't think I've missed anything else.

Do you have a straightforward audio clip please Tim? I'd be very interested to have a listen.

Re: 107.5 Mystery US News in English via Perseids

The fact that it's an old clip and the flutter on it may be mobile flutter rather than an unstable MS train suggests to me iTrip. You hear all sorts of random things on them. A few weeks ago I heard what sounded like part of a phone conversation on 87.5.

Re: UNID on 96.2 from Belarus? - maybe VladDor can help

Hi Nick, Frankly speaking, I have heared only two different stations in your recording. If you used horizontal Körner 9.2, most likely the station with russian song since 00:00 min is from Minsk or Rīga. Unfortunately, I don't have an experience of listening FM stations from Belarus or Latvia. So I...
