Re: Mystery Irish English Es on 88.9

Thanks Theme.

I have received a number of Vaughan Radio outlets via Es. This is the first time on 88.9. Barcelona is one of my favourite parts of Europe to DX. So many stations. But no doubt a nightmare to DX from. Many stations sharing frequencies too it seems.

Re: Mystery Irish English Es on 88.9

Very possibly/probably Nick.

Just done a bit of research and there is a "CAT-B Portadora INACTIVE Barcelona/El Carmel" listed on 88.9. Guess what? The notes say "Ex- Vaughan (4/18)". Barcelona was in at the time.

Puzzle probably solved!

Re: The Beauty of Macros in Word Processing

Textpad is the great. I am almost tempted to buy the full version, but this free version has always served me well. You just have to be patient with the "Buy Textpad / Continue using textpad free" messages which appear every 30 minutes.

Perfect for web coding too.

Re: Mystery Irish English Es on 88.9

Yes, it would have to be something like that I guess. I am determined to catch up with my old Es files. Problem is, there will have been so many changes in the last (almost) two years, that some of the stations I received back then won't be around now, or will have changed name, etc. There aren't a ...

Mystery Irish English Es on 88.9

Playing catch-up once again. This time with some old Es files. I am up to July 30th 2017 already! :shock: https://app.box.com/s/zh73iwm9zpu2gon7gg5wo2bxx3xc81qa This English oddity was recorded on 88.9 during an Es opening to the Barcelona / Balearic area.

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

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.

For what it's worth, it sounds like Radio Nueva Leon to me also.
