Re: Skegness Log: 2017-06-24 (Es: E POR ALG FIN)

There's been nothing here either when I've listened. Es should be just around the corner too. Back to unseasonably cool weather again now we have passed the record-breaking Easter temperatures. I was away in South Holland over the last few days (The Lincolnshire area, not the country!) and it temper...

1590 ESPN

I received an ESPN station on 1590 at exactly 14:14:00 this morning. The offset was 1589.9947. This is of particular interest to me as I have never heard an ESPN station on 1590. Conditions were above average with 1350 KRNT and 1510 KCKK coming in at the time - quite late in the season for these. Pe...

DX Tip: 1350 WOYK York PA

Probably sem-regular for some, but a personal first here this morning with a nice "13-50 WOYK" ID at 03:56:17 and a "Sportsradio 13-50 WOYK" ID at 13:57:17. ESPN flavour. Offset is 1350.0003.

Re: Skegness Log: 2017-06-24 (Es: E POR ALG FIN)

Thanks for this. I am slipping far behind with my updates, but I guess there is no need to update my log if 106.5 is uncertain. Need more hours again, etc.

Re: SDR Console and RDS logging - coming soon.

Thanks Dave. I must admit I get so little time to study these things that it's no wonder I understand so little about them. When I have more time, etc. I will have a play. I may be spending some time away from home at some point, so there is a need to automate as many things as possible. If I can ge...

Re: dx tip 22/4

I heard an ad for what sounded like Bloomberg on 1390 this morning at 03:57 on a low offset Not sure who this could be. Aren't WCAT business talk? Can't find a website for WCAT to check for any possible Bloomberg programming. There's a rock or pop station in the mix too.

Re: Hate speech on media in your country?

People just need educating. No need for hatred of any kind. Simple enough to say of course. Slightly off-topic: What I find shocking these days is the amount of bias and outright lies which are perpetuated in this country's mainstream media. There is now an uprising of alternative media, available o...

1380 ID ending with "R"

Played this over and over again. It's at 04:00. OM says something ending in R. No matter how many times I play this I cannot dig it out, but suspect WPYR Baton Rouge LA.

1510 KCKK Littleton CO. Very late in the season!

Heard with numerous IDs on 1510 around 03:30 - 04:00. And we're almost at the end of April!

So doesn't the new Console software scan the band and auto-log files?

Re: 103.4 New UK Station Testing?

Thanks Tim. Definitely a blank carrier. Then I am wondering if the audio disappeared from The Beach, temporarily. That would explain things. I rotated the antenna inland (From its fairly typical south-easterly resting place>) and received Hallam with C5B0. By the time I had rotated back to the east,...

103.4 New UK Station Testing?

Just having a morning tune around band 2 and I came across a blank carrier on 103.4. I didn't note the RDS details at the time as I was more concerned with rotating the antenna to try to peak the signal, so this is from memory. The PI was (probably) C5B6 and the partial PS I saw was something like "...

Re: Elad FDM-S2 actual freq range

Interesting. I have never explored this on the FDM-S2. I guess most SDRs will tune outside their stated range to some degree.

Re: Es on 15 and 10m

That's how I have always understood it too, Stuart. Don't the maps show Es starting way down at 14 MHz? I'm sure I've seen this many times.

Re: Skegness Log: 2016-08-02 (Es: TUR Baltics Balkans, etc.)

Hello Rolands.

Thank you very much for this. I'm a little slow to update my log at the moment as I am so busy lately, but will do this as soon as I can.

Good DX!
