Re: 13-10-18 Observations

I can add something to this. A ham friend wound me some transformers for flags and Beverages. He said it wouldn't make any obvious difference to the ear or even S meter if I used 50 or 75 ohm coax. It would amount to one extra turn on the transformer. That is how forgiving flags are. As for the sign...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

You have an excellent location for transatlantic DX Stuart. Jaguar seems to have been taken up by most of the names in MWC, although a few seemed reluctant to give it a try. It has been almost revolutionary here. But I really need to do something to my flag. If you could see how I have it, you would...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

700 was quite busy this morning! 699.9934 Presumed Radio Sucre with Latin rhythms. 699.9984 Something, but below audio level. 699.9994 WLW. 700.0019 Cali? OM talk, but with some music. Possible IDs around 05:06:07 and 05:06:20. W Radio, Cali? WLW was the strongest signal with some reasonable peaks.

13-10-18 Observations

A Spanish station dominated 1490 between 00:00 and 01:00. Lots of Spanish OM talk and lively Latin rhythms. I cannot dig out an ID, but the 1490.0018 offset suggests this could be Radio Merida from Venezuela. Radio Vida Nueva from Barranquilla was present on 1489.9843 for most of the morning, with a...

Re: dx tip 9/10

Thanks Stuart.

Really scraping the barrel though. The wide positive offset is spot on for Su Presencia, so no doubt that.

Good DX!

Not sure what is being said, but I suspect it's Su Presencia.

Re: A bit of tropo 08/10/18

97.9: That's "Radio Twee", the Dutch TWO. So VRT-2, Genk. Drie (dree, phonetically) is Dutch for three.
99.2: WDR-2, Langenberg. WDR2 ID at 59 seconds.
103.3 Cosmo, Langenberg. ID at 24 seconds.

Re: A bit of tropo 08/10/18

Wow! I didn't think of looking for Latvia, but I was aware of the tropo out that way. I guess any reciprocal reception would have been virtually nil because of Latvians using far less power. I was looking for Kaliningrad on 107.2 but it didn't happen. I thought I heard it a few times, but it turned ...

Re: TROP>DENMARK

Probably WDR2 from Barbelkreuz, which was belting in here this morning.

I think you are right about Holland. You'd hear nothing but white noise at 20 kHz if that was Holland. Even 50 kHz would struggle.

BRILLIANT! :)

I have been following this on RealDX. It's sad to say but I think we have to admit to this, that even English people cannot recognise their own language. ;) ;) ;)

Re: UNid 936 2200z

I checked my toth recordings from the last couple of days. I don't hear the same as what you have Patrick, but I hear Iran, which dominates here in the evenings. Could it be that? The music at the very beginning of the clip sounds suspiciously like the kind of toth music Iran might play.

Re: dx tip 8/10

Quite! MW is totally buggered here. The disturbance is overwhelmingly clear on Jaguar's waterfalls yesterday evening and overnight.

Perhaps a good time to try for India and Africa this evening.

Thank you again for the info David. I wonder who the music station is here. Boston testing? Funny test if so.

Re: dx tip and pf

Thanks David. It's highly unusual for a US station to have music over the hour. Let's hope it's something interesting as conditions didn't look that great here this morning.

Re: dx tip and pf

To hear something transatlantic fade up at the top of the hour has been an extremely rare occurrence for me this season. As is often the case, the law of averages do not apply here. Yet, magically, incredibly, something DID fade in at the top of the hour this morning. On 1510 at 0400, a North Americ...
