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

The way the capture ratio is described on that car radio is the same on the RBRX Encore receiver. It has a tendency to flip back and forth between two contesting signals which can be a bit disconcerting if there is noise/QRM on the channel. It's certainly sharper than the XDR. Maybe it has the same ...

Re: *** AURORA - NOW! ***

It is a bit distorted, like it's overmodulating, but it's clear enough to easily hear what music is being played when it peaks.

Not sure if it's AuEs as the fading happens over minutes rather than seconds.

Re: *** AURORA - NOW! ***

Hi Maciek and thanks. Yes I do have a couple of recordings but there's no speech on them. I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to upload it. It depends if any more comes in tonight.

If this really was Au propagation then it's the first time I've heard it since March 1989.

Re: *** AURORA - NOW! ***

Even darn sarf I've heard rock music on 89.2 which was in for several minutes about an hour ago, and more recently something on 89.3 peaking NE/NNE playing back-to-back soft pops, not Radio 2.

Re: Unid 90 Mhz French ears needed

87,5 "ARAB" 20-06-17 Libya No, I think this is splatter from Radio Tataouine in Tunisia. It's clearly off-channel and the Libyan on 87.5 has only ever had Quranic prayers and recitations whenever I've heard it, not music. This was also around the same time a suspected Tunisian was heard on 89.2 here.

Re: Es Morocco

Still going on here but reduced in intensity. It was reaching the top of the band with plenty of signals from Morocco and Spain.

The season refuses to give up just yet!

Re: ALL TIME TOP / BEST FM RADIO or TUNER ?

For me, I will now have to say that the best FM tuner I've used so far is the most recent addition to the 'shack' (well, living room), the BW Broadcast RBRX Encore. It has superior audio quality and reception capabilities to the Sony XDR-F1HD. Using the narrowest 56 kHz filter to extract weak DX 100...

Here I've heard Poland, Sweden and Finland, as well as a few UNIDs. Completely mad at this time of the evening on the last day of August!

Re: Es Turkey

Hi David. You can log 87.8 as Diyanet Kuran Radyo, as the ID turned up on my recording at 55 secs: https://app.box.com/s/xhr1l9qb43vrmrq4fgqlvd2a284lywq5 I've also logged it as Çanakkale, at 2466 km. I suspect this was a long single hop rather than double-hop. The most consistent signal during this ...

Re: Malta ? - 88.7

I would log it Simon. It sounds like 'Kunzo' was said after 'Live at La Grotta' but I could be wrong.

Conditions are definitely going down that way as in the last 10 or 15 minutes I have had Libya on & off on 87.5, even reaching RDS levels briefly.
