Re: Was it just here?

Wow! If only I had the room. I have been thinking about experimenting with a Kaz, but laziness will probably get the better of me. As long as the band is relatively noise free, then I will probably stick to what I know. But is the KAZ quieter than the flag? I wouldn't mind experimenting some time th...

Re: Africa

Much stronger signals from Sudan on 1296 yesterday evening between 2000 - 2200. SRTC was consistently stronger than COPE Valencia and Langley Mill (XL).

Es > Poland, Italy, Romania, Czech Rep. Slovakia, etc.

Variable signals. Has been almost to the top of the band.

Good DX!

Re: Es > Turkey

Valencia area of Spain now. Patchy at best. Dribs of Algeria, drabs of Italy. All bottom of the band stuff so far.

Re: Africa

Thanks Brookman. I will look out for those. In the meantime, here is a recording of Sudan on 1296 yesterday evening. Note the late time pips. You can hear the "Sudan" ID and there is a mention of Omdurman too. Then some kind of jingle or top of the hour signature music. https://youtu.be/0XRZhMlKj58 ...

Africa

I thought I ought to start a new thread for this rather than prolonging the "Was It Just Here?" topic. I have the flag now pointing towards eastern Africa. This will keep Spain down to a minimum, in theory. I recorded the band yesterday evening and found that noise levels weren't quite the problem I...

Re: Ireland Tropo 17/07/17

Great signals! First time I've seen the famous Billinge Hill too. I found this Wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billinge_Hill but ti doesn't state how high above sea level this is. There's a great photo of Manchester on that page, taken from the hill. Certainly seems to be a good radio s...

Re: UNID Balkan 92.7 - 1118 16-06-17

Thanks PFM. I see the logic in this. But there is an equal amount of 'illogical' too. I'm sure it's all geared towards making more money for the artists and YouTube. Vimeo doesn't have this problem at all! I've uploaded quite a few lengthy videos to Vimeo showing almost an hour of live tuning during...

Re: Was it just here?

Thanks Simon. I will look at South America again in the next few days. Come the end of July I hope to be recording almost nightly. I recorded yesterday evening looking for Africa but I haven't checked the files yet. Noise levels were higher than I would have liked so I am not hopeful of too much, bu...

Re: Es 16/07/17

Toulouse and Bayonne were briefly received here at the time. Lots of Spanish DX to the top of the band, plus Morocco and Algeria.

Re: UNID Balkan 92.7 - 1118 16-06-17

Yes, I am in trouble for uploading about one very noisy second of Sniff & The Tears' Driver's Seat. I am to be shot at dawn. YouTube have told me that this is "the first strike". If I get two more I will be banned! Nice. Let's not worry about the countless thousands of YouTube pages which have hundr...

Re: UNID Balkan 92.7 - 1118 16-06-17

Thank you very much for this information.

I will update my logs for this.

I also found this station's website and web stream. I actually heard the same ad break and announcement as on my recording!

Good DX!

Re: Solar Activity - Storm warning

I've been following this. There has been a moderate impact this morning according to the NOAA http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/planetary-k-index It will be interesting to see if this gets any bigger.
