Re: Baltic E skip 85-90mhz 8th june 2017

I downloaded one of your files Tim and it's just 20 seconds of silence using a media player. So it does look like I'd have to download an SDR app.

Just tried to open the file out of curiosity and it's asking for a decryption key.

Re: June 11th 2017 retraction

Worth checking Tim. I remember this opening; it was a massive one to the Balkans and Greece with Thessaloniki right up the band to 108.0! The latter was a pirate.

Aha I didn't realise that Tim.

Would you be able to post some audio files up? I'd be very interested in listening. I missed this opening to the NE as it happened whilst I was at work.

Re: Baltic E skip 85-90mhz 8th june 2017

Nope. Doesn't play here either. It asks me to install Flash Player but checking on the webpage it links to, it seems to go to a porn site, so I'm not going there.

Can you try box.com?

Re: The Conditions Thread

the Arab could be TWR Asia from Gavar, Armenia broadcasting in farsi and arabic language Thanks for that. What I presume is North Korea is coming in on 819 kHz on the Kongsfjord SDR with an excitable OM, with music in the background. Also a strange whirring noise coming and going. Possibly another ...

Re: North Korea on medium wave

Kongsfjord SDR now: 819 kHz has an excitable OM with music in the background, and some whirring sounds (?). I presume this is North Korea. The language sounds Korean.

China is belting in like a local on 1377 kHz on the Kongsfjord SDR, as per web stream. Normally I have heard an Arabic station on this channel here.

Re: Music Newly Discovered

Has anyone on here heard of the internet radio station Cybernetic Broadcasting System? It's known as the CBS for short, is part of the legendary Intergalactic FM family (run by I-F aka Ferenc E. van der Sluijs ), and has been on & off over the years in various forms, known for playing electro, Italo...

Re: Bretagne, unusual 107.7 reception

Was it E-skip from an NRJ network outside France? That would seem the most likely explanation.

Re: Goodbye Megane. Hello Picasso! But what is the radio?

Hi John, https://s14.postimg.org/u84pv01fj/2018_01_31_23_07_55_Greenshot.png I posted this screenshot in a different thread. You'll find on it NXP customers. Delphi is on top of the list. Of course, XDR tuner is obsolete and no longer available, so Delphi stereo has a newer tuner. Most of today's c...

Re: Music Newly Discovered

I'm guessing Can were big Miles Davis fans. 'Rated X' has a similar feel. I think I may have to investigate further. Here's a Terry Riley composition I heard recently on WFMU. It's his 'reworking' of a late 1967 RnB track by the Harvey Averne Dozen, 'You're No Good': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: BBC radio Wales taking over R3 relays

I found it in the 'Ogs Tim: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Mixing-It/release/1021496 Sounds excellent! 'Late Junction' is the closest equivalent now although I very rarely get the chance to listen to it to be honest. I can't imagine Radio 3 disappearing from FM in England at least for a long time y...

Re: Could this be the next "Must Have" FM DX receiver?

It may be an NXP chipset Zach but it is not the same as the one in the XDR. I was told this by an engineer I spoke to at BW Broadcast not long before I bought the RBRX Encore. He said that they couldn't use the XDR NXP chipsets for the Encore as they weren't available any more. The capture ratio is ...

Re: Could this be the next "Must Have" FM DX receiver?

Another option is BW re-broadcast receiver, just like Nick pointed above. The later use the same NXP tuners (chip) as in XDR series. Yet again, this is a more expensive option. Hi Zach. The older RBRX1/RX1 receivers used the same NXP chipsets as the Sony XDR-F1HD but the RBRX Encore uses a differen...

1377 kHz was audible on the car radio driving home from work on January 25th with music and Chinese OM. Conditions must have been excellent.

Re: 1053 Libya !??!

It sounds like Libya to me. This may also explain the strong Arabic station that was coming in well on 1053 kHz on the Kongsfjord SDR yesterday evening.

Re: The Conditions Thread

Well they should get with the 21st century ;-)

What I'm most curious about though, is that sort of propagation to Alaska unusual in Arctic Norway or is is common?
