Re: DX Tip: 980 WCUB Two Rivers WI

Thanks Paul. It was a nice surprise here too. I've only heard this once before at the solar minimum around 1997.

The offset was 980.0009, as near as I can say. Much higher than the one given in Jaguar.

Re: 1070 unid

I have country music at .0003 at that time but no speech. Severe splatter from 1071 spoils this frequency.

Some fair peaks amid the various country songs, but a weak ID caught at 05:34 this morning.

Re: 1350 WIOU Kokomo IN

Wow! Congratulations! Nothing here at 05:00 other than music over the hour. I have basketball commentary at 05:36, which could be anybody of course, but there are two of those piano sports sounders at exactly 05:37:57. Maybe one of those is WIOU but I'll never know from that. No joy on WDZY 1290 eit...

Re: 1130 WDFN Detroit MI behind WBBR at 23:58

I don't know, sadly. I didn't get a WDFN ID either, but it's definitely them. The offset is down at .9928

Re: 891 Presumed Thailand

My presumption may be wrong! I got a few responses from RealDX and the general consensus is that the language is Chinese. Having delved deeper into yesterday evening's recordings I found a MUCH stronger signal after 21:00. Still no ID at 22:00 when the station was still going strong, but if anybody ...

1490 WOLF Syracuse NY

V weak at 05:00 with ID and mention of 92-5 translator station. I often hear the sports sounder here.

Good DX!

891 Presumed Thailand

From 21:00 yesterday evening. https://app.box.com/s/qm0vpikdnix7ewqmf5ysz10wxjxv5r5l This one gets me every year. I don't know what language this is but I am assuming Thailand to be the only option. You can hear Iran and Taiwan (their news jingle) mixing here. I may post this one to RealDX as I don'...

Re: 1360 Long Shot

Thanks Paul. I thought WAWE too but WLWE was the only option. Interesting.

1360 Long Shot

Really not sure about this but it sounds like a call, however, the context somehow is slightly off so perhaps a second opinion on this please. I think I am hearing WLWE. I hear sports talk after the possible ID. The offset was slightly higher than that of WSAI, also sports, at .0025. WSAI is at .001...

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

Yes I see .0038 Simon. Looks a strong sig before it disappears at 2345, but WFED is too strong by then. Probably not to hard to id it with a 2345 powerdown. EDIT My money would be on WDPC Dallas GA with a 2345 closedown- 5kW then off. With audio this morning right before powerdown. I hear a man tal...

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

I heard two stations earlier but this was between 05:10 to fade-out around 06:00. I see KSOO's offset is significantly higher than WMVP so I can only guess that my other station was KOMO. It was never very strong. Grab attached. Where was your suspceted KSOO?

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

Maybe that's WDER on 1319.9986, powering down at 00:29?

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

.0036 here. Sorry, I forgot to check. Vague audio from this on total WFED fade. Man talking but nothing more than that. Abruptly off at 23:43.

(I'm now getting WFIF at .0011!)

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

I think it's just one of those things, Simon. Not all Perseus' are on frequency, as is the case with most other receivers. This is no problem when you can calibrate against a known, precise and stable offset as you can reference that, providing you don't stray too much off frequency. So 909 will cov...

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

Thanks Paul. My offset calibration is way off at the top of the band now 1341 has gone. My 1500.0019 was calibrated against BBC 909. I'd better stop reporting top of the band offsets, unless there is another reliable known offset I can reference.

Nothing obvious on 120 here, btw.

Re: DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

I wonder if my sports (KSTP?) station from yesterday morning was in fact WFIF. They definitely had sports so I presume not. WFIF came in here at 1500.0019.

DX Tip: 1500 WFIF Milford CT

Thanks to Paul Crankshaw for the tip:

A lot of splatter at this time which magically stopped at just the right moment.

and a personal first.
