Re: Tropo 29/03/21, Germany received

Last night Holme Moss was booming in Hatfield with signals reaching 62dBf. Generally Western part of the UK was, to say the least, massively enhanced. Also, signals from Kent were hitting RDS levels. I stayed up to 1 am and there was plenty of small TX audible indoors. I give up searching for stream...

Re: Tropo 29/03/21, Germany received

Some weak French "tropo usual" signals from North France here, but nothing really spectacular. Surprisingly, nothing from the Netherlands!

Re: UNID UK

This 102.2 sounds to me either Heart or Capital FM. I would lean towards Heart. As far as I know, there is no pirate station in London transmitting on 102.2. Regarding 94.4, yes this could be a pirate from the London area. I doubt it's unlisted either commercial or national TX.

Re: Mixes

John, This is a rather more modern tune with a punchy baseline. Piano House originates in the late 80s in Italy. The early 90s was the main period for synth and piano tunes. Yet another example of great Italian production that combines pian and sytnh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPZ-FZ7D_hk I und...

Re: UNID RUS

Languages are not learned "long time ago". Languages are learned whole life... but of course big languages can't be that interesting. Knowledge of different small languages and dialects is much more interesting and valuable, more and deeper the better. Lets go DXers! 73! LOL. I don't thin...

Re: Mixes

These days everything is digital, so don't expect getting producers to release 12" singles. I mix music from the time when I was in my late teens, which is early to mid-90s, and at that time most DJs still used records to mix music in clubs. I start collecting vinyl records when they were still...

Sounds to me like Radio Rossii, but I am not sure as the recording is very weak.

Re: UNID RUS

https://youtu.be/J5kJ_x5Nrtw The propagation of yesterday was so strong that the MUF reached the CCIR band, but owing to the weak signal level and the rapid fade ins and outs a few station remained unidentified. This one on 88,1 seems to be the most promising as I could record ads.(other stations w...

That's sad news. Maybe they won't close this year. The sporadic-E season is just ahead of us.

Wow! I checked 10-59-09_95800000Hz file and I can tell you straight away this is NL/UK soup! I managed to ID'd some of my local signals too in this opening.

Re: Car stereo for beginner FM/AM DXing

DYNAS was introduced in the early 90s, possibly 1992 IIRC. I had a small leaflet about it, but I have no idea if I still have it. I think Onkyo was the first to implement this in their top-line tuners. There were maybe one or two top-line Pioneer car stereo models with DYNAS. This was a very expensi...

You'd be laughing lads. I mix music as well. The early 90s and mid-90s. Mostly Italian House and Italodance. Occasionally Euro too. I mix with records though. Here is one of my mixes https://www.mixcloud.com/mario_djm/danc ... vinyl-mix/

I bought some Murata's from this chap from the link above. They were genuine and worked great in my Sony tuner.
