Re: Es 15-05-2019

Ohh sorry, yes it was on OIRT. It's gone quiet now, but lots of activity on 50MHz in Central Europe.

Re: Es season opening in Latvia

I don't think there's a need for argument on what it was and what wasn't. Perhaps it was a brief Eskip and perhaps it was mobile TX. The fact is, whatever it was, the fading pattern is different from Es but an aggravating discussion is not necessary.

Re: Es season opening in Latvia

I don't know what it was, but it sounds to me like a mobile TX. Perhaps a Muslim truck driver was nearby with a mobile transmitter? I also received a similar signal, with short fadings, and the suggestion is that it was mobile TX. The recording of this reception is here https://www.youtube.com/watch...

Re: My new DSP portable is on the way

I have unmodified DEGEN DE1103 PLL version and (I feel like) Is too wide on FM band. It's decent radio for SW though. I didn't bother to modify it for FM use. Perhaps I will consider the modification in future. I also have Tecsun PL-680, which is a great little radio but lacking RDS. In fact, DEGEN ...

Re: Mystery language on 90.6 (Es)

Either Slovakian or Czech language. I leaning towards Slovakian as the speech in you recording sounds softer than Czech that I remember.

Re: Tropo 24/02/19

Although maps doesn't show anything in my area there is a local tropo still going on here. Possibly a high elevated duct refracting signals. Tacolneston booming with 40dBuV signals and Holme Moss is at 30 dBuV.

Holme Moss has "calmed down" now to 40 dBuV. Essex is still strong here with 103.5 BBC Radio reaching 40 dBuV.
