Re: Was it just here?

Very Interesting, Simon. My own WFED reception was slightly better than Peter's, but it was the opposite with my Caribbean Beacon reception.

Re: 107.8 ID during Es to POL UKR & BLR

Thank you PFM :)

I'm not sure you will have missed too much. The Es season has been up and down this year, but there have been lots of gaps of very little in the last couple of weeks.

Re: Was it just here?

Thanks Simon and Peter. I checked WFED and it was there. Same for two stations on 1010, so no doubt WINS and CFRB. It was patchy and very weak, but a more thorough scan has revealed a few more stations. Your Caribbean Beacon reception was a little better than mine Peter. Iran is a pest here, but muc...

Re: Was it just here?

The results of my overnighter are in .... *Poor*! Definitely some improvements, however. I heard a *very* weak audio from 1010 WINS, 1400 CBG, 1560 WFME, 1600 Caribbean Beacon, 1660 possibly Puerto Rico and a few others. I'll await your input on this Simon, but since I am not familiar with this loca...

Re: probably just a common German (perseids) 89.5

Good point PFM. I have never heard HR3 and Big FM on 89,5. That's surprising now I think about it, as I have had the Hoher Meißner and Stuttgart transmitters on other frequencies via MS. You have to love MS - completely unpredictable!

Re: Was it just here?

I have no idea about Bermuda, so I hope somebody else will come along with the answer. But well done on the North Americans! CHRF never ID'd here either, but you can always check their playlist to see if it ties in with what you heard. I've been recording between 1900 - 2200 every evening now for mo...

Re: probably just a common German (perseids) 89.5

Bayern 2 from Wendelstein is a common visitor here on MS. In fact it's the only German I have heard on 89.5 via MS.

Re: Changes to some BBC local radio MW services

Yes, perhaps so. I always feel slightly guilty when I express my glee over the fact that more European transmitters are going to close, but this is obviously down to the fact that I am a keen MW DXer. It is of course extremely sad when these broadcasters close down after being on the air for decades.

Re: Mystery PI Code A407

Thank you for taking the time to write this PFM. Very helpful and informative. It would appear that my A407 is a random PI. The 300+ group counts would suggest it was highly unlikely that this was a random code, but it can't be ruled out completely. Thanks anyway for going to this amount of trouble.

Re: Early Asiatic DX

Now wouldn't Fiji be a great catch in the UK? We'll see if it is reported in northern Europe first. I think it will probably remain a dream for UK DXers, but nothing wrong with trying. The Naulu transmitter in Fiji is a mere 16111 km from my QTH. MWList states Naulu has just 12 kW. I wonder if this ...

Re: Perseids 2017

An increase in MS bursts and longer trains noted around the dawn period. Still nothing spectacular, but it's improving. Maybe 0300-0800 is not the best time for this shower. Hopefully 1900 today will reveal more.

Good DX!

Re: Mystery PI Code A407

Thanks Nick.

I was wondering about a corrupt PI code - and we can never rule out that possibility with weak signals, but the same PI code continued to form quickly, over and over again, with several thousand group counts.
