Re: dx tip and pf

Very nice David.

Still no TA path open here at 05:00 but getting close. Only WRED and WHKZ there <04:00.

Re: Perseids 2019

It certainly is. That's only 60 watts or something like that.

Re: Unid. 1470 04:17:20

Yes, 100% and no doubt about it! I really wasn't sure what I was hearing at first. Seems to be a regular in Europe lately. A personal first and my first Brazilian on 1470 in Skegness! (I logged six Brazilians on 1470 in Nottinghamshire.) Thanks Simon. EDIT: Ooops! This is Peru. Oh well, my THIRD Per...

Re: Perseids 2019

I recorded 1 hour 20 minutes this morning from 08:20, beaming WNW, horizontally. A weird one to start off with: The first MS was a 10 second burst of noise on 87.2 87.7 88.2 88.7 89.2 89.7, etc, gradually fading the higher the frequency. About an hour later I had a decent German burst with MDR Jump ...

1469.9996 at exactly 04:17:20 I hear an ID in what sounds like Portuguese. The programming was of gentle music.

Re: dx tip 23/8/19

Yes, thanks for the regular tips. All welcome.

For the record, I checked 1270 here and the two carriers there but they were too weak for reliable audio.

05:00 is still a tad too early for us east coasters.

Re: Possible tropo on Sunday and Monday

What a difference 150 miles (240 km) makes. Summer is returning on this side. It was 20C at midnight here yesterday evening and we're looking at a potential 30C somewhere in the south-east over the next few days.

DX wise, I'm away, so I won't have any chance of enjoying the tropo.

Re: DX Tip: 1280 WWTC Minneapolis MN

That's surprising. My North sea path must really be open. Still can't get over how early in the season this is. WWTC is rare even in the middle of winter.

1540 KXEL was indeed very clear this morning.

Re: 1470 - Cadena Radial Vida

Lots of carriers on 1470, some with very weak audio, but CRV did not make it through here. Thanks for the tip anyway.

Re: Perseids 2019

I recorded a couple of overnights leading up to the main event and I think the 7th was one of those Tim, but I couldn't ID a single station. It was hopeless with a capital H. Mind you, Id did my usual favourite thing of pointing around 50-60 degrees and vertical. Had loads of Swedes in the past doin...

Re: DX Tip: 570 CFCB Corner Brook NL

:lol: Ah yes, that summer grandchildren season. I don't have any more of those, very thankfully. How does that old saying go? Children should not be seen and not be heard? Yes, that's the one!

Here's wishing you a very successful DX season! :)

Re: DX Tip: 570 CFCB Corner Brook NL

It was on the flag, Simon.

I won't be doing any Beverage tests for a week or more as the beverage setup is on my girlfriend's farm. She will be staying with me this weekend, so it's flag reception only for a while.

DX Tip: 570 CFCB Corner Brook NL

570 was a quiet channel here this morning. This station was heard throughout the morning. VOCM IDs noted at sunrise peak at 03:34.

Good DX!
