Re: DX maps question

Hi Nick, yes I have the Ft8 plots turned on @ dxmaps - i'm just wondering where they get the raw info from as I'm often hearing stuff where I am which isn't showing up on dxmaps. PSK reporter is ok but Id love if there were a way for me to feed reports to Dx maps without entering the reports manually.

Re: DX maps question

Hi Andy,

yeah but does PSKR feed to DX Maps?

I know when I have fed data to PSKR It hasn't gone to DX maps as well.

DX maps question

Anyone know how DX maps collects it's 6 metre spots? (Apart from direct input)

I'd love to feed FT8 info to them, right now I have Iceland, Western Sahara, The Azores and the Canaries all coming in but virtually nothing showing for Ireland on the maps.

Re: Elad FDM-S2, last version SDR Sharp operative?

Hi Tomas, RDSspy and the Elad work well together you will need Virtual Audio Cable or similar and set up a connection @ 192 khz you will also need to send WBFm Mux out to VAC in the settings of the elad software. This video shows how but there are more detailed explanations somewhere on this forum. ...

Re: Madeira 88.4 / 94.1 @ 1745

The only interesting ones I heard today (next to tons of Cadenas, Cuarentas, Europas, Kisses, Copes and Onda Ceros): You forgot RNE 1 ;) I caught a nice 1kw local opt out from RNE1 in Cantabria about a week ago giving local weather and news. I was as pleased with it as if it were something much mor...

Re: sporadic-e opening British Islands-Canary Islands?

Hi Tomas, everything I was hearing was coming from Tenerife. Are you listening from El Hierro? Ireland has a very different "dx climate" than Britain. So you may have been able to hear something from here but nothing from there. Sometimes I see other people hearing Ireland but I cannot receive anyth...

Re: Elad FDM S2 weird images.

And it's at it again tonight. I'm not sure if it's moisture getting in somewhere but the aerial is due a good check up. If i add in the least little bit of attenuation the problem disappears. Odd.

Continental Europe joins the amazed crowd:) @Paul -Congratulations! What a superb acheivement! Somebody has pointed it out - the distance is shorter compared to others' 2Es DXs. ie. my Iran or Kuwait. The Big Pond really makes the difference. We have plenty of arabs in a single Es range, so IRN and...
