Re: Tropospheric Forecast 29 Dec -01 Jan

I have back-to-back dance music on 87.5. No IDs, just long gaps between tracks as if it's coming from iTunes or Spotify, far too weak to get RDS from it but strong and stable enough to listen to through the static. Any ideas what it could be? I would imagine it's a pirate rather than a legal statio...

Re: Tropo on Christmas day?

So far despite much expectation from myself for enjoying good conditions this morning at my location in dense fog (but now blue sky and Sun) the FM has been limited to local Paris & Urban networks. How can this be when the map is showing nice colors and fog? I read that fog conditions are ideal for ...

Re: Ideal MWDX Equipment?

The D-808 is indeed a fine little radio (I own one), but I'm surprised one can consider it as an "ideal MW DX equipment". A SDR would offer much more. Just my 2 cents Bonsoir Patrick, You mention you have a XHDATA D808 radio and i would like for knowing if you have the problem of mute when tuning f...
