Re: UNID French ID 92.6

Hello. Thanks for listening to my recording. There was a tropo to northern and north-west France on this morning. I came in very late and I suspect that conditions were much better earlier. Alas, I am not an early riser so I often miss these early openings. Conditions at the time had Brest TDF outle...

Re: UNID French ID 92.6

Thank you to Lucas in France who says that there is no actual ID in this recording. Just a simple DJ link between songs.

Re: UNID French ID 92.6

I'm bumping this one up as I would like a confirmation of a suggestion made by Nick Gilly. He thinks the ID is "Radio Tropiques" from Paris. I am not disputing this but would like a second opinion. I hate to do this as it's almost a kick in the teeth to Nick, who is usually spot on with these things...

Asian DX

Taiwan Fisheries put in a fair signal on 1143 yesterday evening at 21:00. 1575 VOA Thailand was good at 22:00. There was a Chinese time signal present with this. I wonder which transmitter this could be? Perhaps CNR1 from Tongxin (Ningxia) at 10kW? My Asian beverage is back! I now need to get the No...

Re: 31 July 2020 - It Ain't Half Hot Mum!

Hottest day here so far this year. But which is the correct temperature? * Ventusky says it peaked at 34C here today. * My car thermometer, in the shade, said it was 31.5 around 14:00. * The weather station here in the house (My girlfriend's place in S Lincs.) said 31.9 at 14:00. I'll take somewhere...

Re: Slight tropo to coastal Belgium & Netherlands

It's down today Chris. Location most of the time here is S.E. Lincs. Wondering if I should change my username now as I am rarely in Skegness these days.

UNID French ID 92.6

Heard in this morning's French tropo.

https://app.box.com/s/8gh3xk4t00t9jv9l2pfv6qubr3xqu1o6

"Radio ?". Seems to consist of four syllables, ending in "dy/die". Nothing listed with this kind of name so maybe a slogan.

Thanks.

Libyan Double Hop 27-07-20

A little late to report now so not posting this in the DX Alerts section. I had some interesting short double hop to Misratah in Libya yesterday afternoon at 16:45. The French Riviera was the first hop, then over the Mediterranean into Misratah at 2590km. The station logged was 87.7 Al Manar, listed...

Re: Comet Neowise Tonight!

Yesterday turned cloudy, but a miracle happened in terms of night sky viewing in England, the clouds magically disappeared at just the right moment! It turned from red to green tonight, apparently this is because it contains cyanogen. News reports say that it was red on the night of the 21st. It was...

Comet Neowise Tonight!

Just to say that Comet Neowise will be at its closest point to earth this evening, so I hope that wish any viewers have clear skies. I was lucky to catch it a couple of nights ago at 22:00 GMT. It was a lot higher in the sky than I had imagined at about 30 or 40 degrees above the horizon to the nort...

Re: Possible double hop to Middle East alert

Let's hope so Dave. My computer is down here so no radio for a while. Multiple problems. I was wondering if I'd miss anything this week.
