Re: The Conditions Thread

Thanks for trying Simon. Appreciated. Hopefully some more good signals tomorrow. The band is already looking quite respectable.

Good DX!

Re: The Conditions Thread

The band woke up! Good North American conditions around 0500+ until beyond 0800 this morning. Probably only east coast conditions after the blow-out, but some nice signals. (My noise only appeared between 0805-0825) North American stations were available even on difficult channels! 1290 WKBK Keene N...

1420 ABC News jingle at 0200. Two stations present in the splatter.

Re: The Conditions Thread

Thanks for this Simon. No ID from that and a nice fade at 0200, but I see the offset as you say. It drifts a little. WWKB was dominant for most of the morning at 1519.9977, plus a Spanish station appeared from time to time at 1520.0011. A couple of other carriers were just about reaching audio level...

Some respectable Oriental DX coming in here this afternoon. 972 HLCA 1134 HLKC 1170 HLSR 1566 HLAZ 1134 and 1170 are presumed as noise levels were overriding the vocals. Time was 1800. 1600 and 1700 were totally noised out. 1500 had Taiwan at fair levels on 1557. And I can just hear Vietnam on 1242 ...

Re: Far, far East - Taiwan and Korea on medium wave

Nice signal from HLAZ! All these stations have been missing from here for the last few weeks. The same thing happened last season. September/October are the best months for Asia. I will have a listen for Asia this afternoon. Poro Point was never an easy catch for me because of all the UK locals on 1...

Re: Noise, Flags & K9AYs. Advice Needed.

Just done a quick update. Shocking! The noise overs the whole of HF and beyond!

Bear in mind the antenna I am using for this demo is a flag. https://youtu.be/nYnKl8qYkw8

Re: Noise, Flags & K9AYs. Advice Needed.

Hello Stuart. The noise starts at the bottom of medium wave from about 700 kHz. It's solid right up to 10 MHz. I haven't checked above 10 MHz. So amateur bands are affected. Perhaps I should reactivate some kind of amateur radio operation so I can state my case as a practising operator. Do you think...

Noise, Flags & K9AYs. Advice Needed.

I have been wondering if it's worth me experimenting with another kind of antenna for medium wave. As you know, I can't sing enough praises about the flag antenna, but I am pulling my hair out regarding noise. Yesterday, I moved my flag into different positions and different parts of the garden in a...

Re: Radio Maria in every town and city across the UK?

Yes, that would definitely be an upside to the move. RTE is excellent. I used to listen to it a lot on the car radio. There's an interesting point about those same old 20 songs you mention. I made a casual kind of study on this and I was surprised by the number of tracks stations like Heart and Smoo...
