Re: Late tip for 17/02

Thank you Simon.

I never noticed this one. I had just deleted my files from the 17th when I read this. Luckily, this was rolling in nicely on the 18th and I caught a lively ID at 02:17:03.

Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

I trust F5LEN's forecasts more. http://tropo.f5len.org/forecasts-for-europe/ That is nothing against William Hepburn's forecasts. They are only as accurate as the data they use and I wonder if they get this from different sources, or that they simply interpret it differently. F5LEN seems to be more ...

Re: i am not superman after all

Really sorry to read this David. But come on, you ARE superman. You can beat this!

Yes, you look after yourself. Take it easy. We need you back at the dials. Hope you make a full recovery very soon.

(Can any of us look after your excellent DX while you are recuperating?)

Re: 1620 - WDHP - Tip

Loud and clear here too. :) Thanks. Well, being completely honest, "loud and clear" is probably more accurately worded thus: "Weak but I can hear what they are saying quite clearly, even though there's co-channel interference from somebody else, probably WNRP." Better signal at 07:00 when I could ea...

Unidentified 1290

First heard at 23:49. https://app.box.com/s/twbvzfrprkcoahqi7bzypslrlwx4o8gb That flute sound starts at exactly 23:49:13. Then heard in short, very weak bursts throughout the night. The only other speech heard was at 02:36. https://app.box.com/s/2jnu6twt780wx762rueb572bgmobsvxf The speech starts at ...

Re: Korner 9.2 from Antennenland - in stock

Glad you are pleased with the initial results René. The change from my Triax FM5 to my 9.2 was also quite a revelation. Here's hoping you find many ore pleasing aspects of this excellent antenna.

Re: 1590 - 06:00

Yes, there were some great signals. This is just to add that I have never known a season like this one for stations constantly peaking mid-song and fading out at the ends.

1280 WNAM Neenah-Menasha WI Promoting DXing!

I would have submitted my recording from this morning, but their signal only peaked mid-song - throughout the entire morning! Bastard's Law!

Re: Weird RDSspy behaviour

It's the same here. At the moment, I am able to run RDS Spy without running VAC. A few years ago, somebody explained how this was possible but I cannot remember. The wonders of Windows!

Re: STANAG on 1624 and 1680 kHz?

Oh THAT thing. That used to block 1680. That's bad news if it's wiping out short waves now too. You know what, let's feck the rules. Let's all set up up pirate radio stations. Better still, let's hi-jack bbc frequencies. The authorities like breaking the rules for their own purposes. Let's stick up ...

Is it just me?

Maybe it's an age thing, or maybe I am just super-depressed because it's Valentine's Day and I have just told my supposed girlfriend where to get off, but I wanted to share my thoughts on this dire state of radio affairs I find myself in. All I did was tune to 103.4 and turn the antenna through 180 ...

A new PITA 107.2 Great Driffield Radio

Yet another outlet playing the same dozy, depressing drivel.

107.2 C04F Gt_Driff

This is way too good a signal for the distance. Have they cranked up the power?

Yes I know it's Valentine's Day. F*** off!

Re: Tropo Wed 13th Feb

Well, there was a surprise. As I pressed the send button on my last message, I just heard an ID for Great Driffield Radio on 107.2. Never even heard of it! Unfortunately (for me) the appearance of Percy Sludge's When A Man Loves A Woman forced me to reach for the off switch. Maybe I will do a remix ...
