Re: Anyone get Es this morning?

Some 6m WSPR Es in Europe this morning, but that doesn't really tell us anything regarding band 2 potential.

Re: dx tip 18/12

Thanks David. I guess that's what I have here this morning on 1509.9903. Some good signals, peaking between 04:00 - 06:00 and again between 07:00 - 08:30. I won't have a lot of time to devote to checking my files today. I note that the solar wind increased overnight, switching reception more to the ...

Re: Hello From the OM W5HWZ

Welcome Bill!

Fond memories of shortwave here too, going back to the mid 70s. I quickly discovered the delights of MW DX and FM DX and they have been my dominant DX bands ever since!

Wishing you good DX!

Re: What is tolerated in your country?

I well remember those two re-broadcasters. One was a relay of Caroline (Who else???) and the other I forget. An internet station I think. Clearly both coming from the same part of Stoke, but only covering a very small area, probably not providing satisfactory coverage for more than half a mile from ...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Skywaves Live Chat now available for for Band 2 and Medium Wave

Hello Billy.

I just tried to add you but your name did not come up. I also tried to find you with your callsign, but nothing. Sorry.

Worthy of note that Google Hangouts is due to close in the near future, so we will be looking to find a new chat service in the very near future.

Prairies Back

Solar wind has dropped to 317 km/sec overnight. Just started to go through my recordings. CHQR is back on 770 with an ID at 07:00. Audible clearly from as early as 04:20. Beautiful clear festive ID from KCKK "93.7 the Rock" on 1510 at 02:35:27 after a Bee Gees song. Hopefully some other goodies arou...

Who is leaving medium wave in 2019?

Following the discussion on Belgium 630 and 1125 leaving (possibly, perhaps, just maybe.) on January 1st 2019, I wondered who else will receive a stay of execution? Ahem, I mean, I wondered who else will be leaving MW? Holland 1008 is supposed to be leaving. Anybody else? I wish I had more informati...
