Re: German tropo 16 Oct 2017

Interesting Dave. No tropo here, but German and Dutch scatter has been very good. Nothing stable at all. Fluttery, weak, etc. but lots of it.

Edit: Actually, some of it is reaching RDS.

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

A late start for me but gentle tropo conditions to Holland here, plus Brittany with a few verticals getting through.

Good DX!

Re: No Noise Is Good Noise! (Medium Wave)

After several days of hardly any noise at all, solid, band-killing noise is now wiping out all nearby transmitters on MW. This has been affecting MW continually since late afternoon. I am baffled. I took a portable around the bungalow, around the garden, around the neighbour's property and on nearby...

Re: 1690 KDMT Arvada CO

Nice one Barry. Just checked my files from the 10th and there's nothing concrete, but I have a talker very slightly high of centre frequency. Just for the record, KDMT was last logged by myself at my Nottinghamshire QTH on 28-10-2008 when it was KDDZ, the Disney Station. I also recorded a local KDDZ...

I can just hear Santis on 105.6. Nothing this evening until now. Very weak. Thanks for the tip Nick.

It's quiet in here!

Yes, probably no wonder in view of the conditions. But a few stations continue to get through on MW. China was as strong as ever yesterday evening on 1377, 1098 & 1377. BEL3 was just audible on 1143 and the two regular South Koreans were still there on 972 and 1566 ... just! I hope somebody has been...

Re: Asiatic DX Tip - 594 JOAK

Thanks Mark. No joaking! I know the score. :lol: It will happen Barry. 1278 JOFR is the most regular one here this season. 1413 comes a weaker second. I have to beam straight through Pulse in West Yorkshire on 1278 too. You shouldn't have that problem. A recent clip from here: https://youtu.be/RBHqK...

Re: Medium Wave

I also noticed a music station on 1520 at the same time KGA was coming through. Maybe KKXA? Format sounded like C&W. Yesterday evening was very disappointing, but I still haven't checked my 2200 slot. The only decent Asiatic signal were from regulars 738 BEL2, 972 HLCA, 1098 CNR11, 1143 BEL3 and 115...

Re: MW conditions

Hello Barry.

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, I was looking at this late yesterday evening. I didn't even bother to record. Bad timing on the part of the sun! Oh well. I'll probably be looking for India later.

Thanks Simon. Although the signal had faded very low at that time, I could just make it out.

Re: A couple of questions about 1510

Hi John. Thanks for this. I see KCKK are officially "97.3 The Rock". Weird to hear KCKK with oldies and rock. I presume that was them I heard playing American Pie around 0520. Haven't found an ID yet. Nothing at all from CJVB. 1470 was a mush of stations most of the time with WLAM surfacing occasion...

https://youtu.be/Et-UQgpInyA Not easy to hear, but this possible ID was heard on the offset of 1509.992. It's not an offset I have seen before on 1510. Are they saying "Newstalk ...... WW??" Maybe one for the recycled bin, but perhaps somebody else has heard this too. Whoever this is seems to reduc...

Medium Wave

We have had a good run of low geomagnetic activity over the last few days. Lots of K1s and 0s. The Solen forecast http://www.solen.info/solar/ says minor storm conditions are possible from today until the 12th. When this blows out, medium wave could just produce some nice surprises. I hope this blow...

Re: A couple of questions about 1510

This is how 1510 looked this morning. I could just make out a "Fox Sports Trending" ID at 0600, but couldn't hear anything conclusive before this. I suspect that's KCKK, but really don't know now. KCKK's website suggests they carry oldies, but is that just their FM outlet? Topaz also lists them with...
