Re: MW Longwire Experiment (with two dogs!)

I tried that method last night and it did make a difference, but I only tried it indoors right next to the computer. You can guess the results. I had intended to try this yesterday evening, but the dogs needed more of my attention than the radio did. Maybe this evening. I'll take the camera again too.

Re: Es France

I wish I had one! ;) Far too many files recorded today. Need to catch up with, oh yes, all those other countless files I recorded this week!

What an amazing Spanish opening! I had written off Spain as a country I wanted to DX, but there were so many unusual locals coming in the time.

Re: MW Longwire Experiment (with two dogs!)

Very interesting. I will try this later if the weather stays dry.

I will also try it without the dogs and with the attenuator switched off! :)

I will try the telescopic whip method too.

Thanks Julian.

MW Longwire Experiment (with two dogs!)

https://youtu.be/FiOjoHGxs2Q I have been meaning to post this for some time. This is about inductive coupling whereby you wrap a wire around a portable receiver to improve reception. But I thought I ought to put things into practice first and have a play. Yesterday evening, I took my Degen DE1103 t...

Re: Es Spain/North Africa

Just been round to my mate Bob's and there were Spanish Es there. A bit of Portugal too. Wonder if Tob is at home, might visit him next.

Re: Es: Moscow

It was up to 105.7. Mostly very weak. Latvia appeared briefly on 104.2.

Lots still happening to the east of us so let's hope it comes to us shortly.

Re: Indian Station

Well, I doubt very much that it would have been India. My 103.8 Indian station was definitely received via Es during and during an opening which brought in Ukraine, Belarus and Poland. After checking my recordings, I realise that Finland and Scandinavia were strong in the minute either side of this....

Indian Station

For the record, just after I received Dnipro, Ukraine, (17:45) this evening, I had an Indian music station coming in via Es on 103.8. It was very brief and didn't produce RDS.

So, just for the record in case anybody else heard this or knows who it is.

Good DX!

Re: Very poor Sporadic E this year for Western Europe...

Hello Tomas. We've just moved into the DX zone. Well, about an hour ago. Poland, Ukraine and Belarus are providing BIG signals right across FM here. If my Spanish was half as good as your English, I would consider myself fluent! Our sporadic E season was VERY slow to start this year. It was as if so...
