Re: Could this be the next "Must Have" FM DX receiver?

I've read somewhere, I don't remember exactly where it was, that the same Sony XDR chipsets were used in a car radios. Perhaps they are still in manufacture? Although I successfully improved sensitivity of my Sony SA3ES by adding a distribution amp and boosting the stignal, after splitting etc. howe...

Re: Unid 90 Mhz French ears needed

I'm pretty sure it is not Alouette. Are you 100% sure it was 90,0 MHz? I always double check the frequency, and I take a picture. Here is the one from 02 July https://s26.postimg.org/6kdg221g9/WP_20170702_18_12_55_Pro.jpg And here are the details: https://s26.postimg.org/5w4lj42qh/Untitled.png

Re: Unid 90 Mhz French ears needed

How about Alouette ??? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzU0xgKCbHfVX0FZa3JkZV82MUU/view I think this is the one. I also have doubt whether it's Es or As or Tropo? As far as I remember that was a very brief skip (?). The whole recording is about 40 seconds long. There are two TX listed on fmscan (57...

Re: Unid 90 Mhz French ears needed

I'm 95% sure it is FGL. The jingles match though your recording seems to have a fade at the beginning of the FGL id so only GL is audible. It's definitelly Radio RG from Annecy 2/Bélvedère de Jeanne. Here is a jingle I recorded from online stream today: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzU0xgKCbHfV...

Re: Unid 90 Mhz French ears needed

Hello Franco, Hello Zach, I listened to the UNIDS posted in your website (I started with the Italian ones), and I've found some clues. June 8th : 87.6 is very likely Rai Radio 1 (no Ids but the format of the broadcast recorded fits with the schedule of Radio 1). But in the very last seconds of the r...

Hi, This one is for our French speaking colleagues ;) Reception from 02 July at 1713 UTC. It could be fading ID in the recording, but I don't understand.

Re: Dipole Vs loop

I build FM Quad loop not so long ago and it perform perfeclty. I used 75-ohm low loss coax (RG-6/U) for the loop and downlead. It pull out 94.1 BBC R4 from Tacolneston (126km) in Stereo almost every time I tune in. It has more gain than my folded diopole and in some cases outperform the dipole. Here...

Re: ALL TIME TOP / BEST FM RADIO or TUNER ?

The Sony F1HD is the best. If FM dxers are not using one it's either because it's too expensive these days (was less than $100 when it first came out...) or they have gone to a wide-band SDR approach (Elad/SDRPlay/Airspy etc). Modded with Konrad's mod it is a superb B2 performer. Stuart I was think...

Re: Tropo Belgium/NL

A quite nice tropo today. Some of London's pirates reached 23dB. From France and Belgium I only had 100.1 VRT R.2 West-Vlaanderen from Egem and 89.4 France Musique from Brest. Also strong local enhancement but all seem to fade now.
