David, I know you aren't into "UK Firsts", so I won't go there. But .... FLIP! Great catch! :)

Well done accessing 1210! That's quite an achievement.

It's wrong. We are depriving these poor artists of millions of £s. We should be thoroughly ashamed of ourselves. :?

OK, here's the polite version of how I feel about this. xxxx the xxxxxxx xxxxxxx.

Re: 1030 daytimer

I see the carrier. Slight drift. 1030.0086/7 at sign-off. Way too weak for audio here.

Guess KTCA Corpus Christi TX. Has been logged in the UK before. The format fits.

I wonder who 1030.0031 is. Audible at 00:00 mixing WBZ. But who?

Re: TA 15/01 - Cuba!

Nice one! :) For the record, KMOX was a struggle here. It's always interesting to learn how reception differs from location to location. I don't have the Prairies here at the moment, but I can see their carriers, sadly just a tad too low for audio.

Re: TA 15/01 - Cuba!

The best conditions this side of Christmas here. I had Cuba on 710, but with an echo, indicating more than one transmitter was received. I thought I'd had KIRO, but Cuba shares the same offset. Religion on 1270 at 05:25 suggests KNWC. I am waiting for the upload of their overnight podcasts to confirm.

All TA had faded out here by 07:00. Thanks anyway. Hope somebody else caught this. A superb catch.

Re: Personal Totals

Ah. Some of us are constant record keepers. Some not. I guess it's the anorak in me. It all came about when I lost data on failed hard drives and couldn't remember everything I'd previously logged. My memory is shocking these days. Middle-aged absentmindedness. If I didn't keep records now ....

Personal Totals

I just updated my the all time personal log on my website and thought I would add up how many stations I have logged from each continent. Come on, this is not going to be the biggest total by far. What about you? What's your best catch from each continent? North America: 238 Central America & The Ca...

Thank you Matthias. You are not the only person who has advised that this is Egypt. Still, a nice new catch.

Re: What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Thanks P-FM. Spain is here right now (Almost 1am local time) on a high offset of 0123. But here's what I recorded at 16:00: https://app.box.com/s/pz6v6owvfjzq42pesopjtu4pik96van8 Chariots Of Fire song extract, part of a national anthem, but an unidentified language.

Thanks Klaus.

I haven't heard Pakistan or Greece on 1008. I will look for Pakistan this afternoon. They have a very distinctive synthetic brass-stab news jingle and three rather primitive sounding time pips on the hour. https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=nHQCNTZignI

What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Since Holland has left 1008, I hear something Arabic in the late afternoons/evenings. Probably Egypt or Iran.

Yesterday, I heard CNR1 from China. probably from the Kunming transmitter.

No Greece so far.

What are YOU hearing?

Re: 1450 CHOU ?

Just got around to checking yesterday's 1450 and I have only two carriers which reached audio level. Talk on .9962, which might be Spanish and .9987. The splatter from 1449 will not let me in. I only had these two signals briefly around 02:10. I didn't hear any Middle Eastern music and nothing else ...
