Welcome Twiddles!

Don't think DS is rival to Skywaves though - we don't have a Coronation Street forum for one thing...

Re: The Voice Of Peace

Bert is on MAR this morning. He's announcing 87.5 main freq and 105 lesser coverage. 87.5 strong is western scouselands - no sign of 105.

Bert is the gaffer - he should know!

Es Season Started!

1 May and the Es season is off to a good start as it is a holiday across most of Europe and many stations on. Worked my first 10m Es of the season - LZ5DD - 1719 km. Remember if you not getting any Es your antenna is not big enough or you're complaining too much the season is bad instead of twiddlin...

Re: Solar Cycle 25

Jim B favours the wind shear theory to explain Sporadic E - though there are many other variables involved which are weakly correlated. This PDF is very good at explaining propagation and touches on Sporadic E. Well worth printing out and returning to time and time again. http://www.infotechcomms.ne...

Re: The Voice Of Peace

I like MAR - I like listening to the presenters and the programmes. However they do some stupid things sometimes. IIRC last time they got a big raid they were running 3 MF and 1 FM signal simultaneously. Even Ofcom will get off their arse and do something about that. Clatterbridge is an Oncology hos...

Re: The Voice Of Peace

The Liverpool 87.5 outlet does change location from week to week; as its signal strength in West Wirral also varies from week to week. Some weeks it's not from pool city centre as I drove through and it faded whilst it was strong on the other side. IIRC a couple of weeks ago they mentioned 1386 whic...

Re: What are some "easy" MW DX stations to look out for?

930 kHz should be on the list as well - two Canucks and the Buffalo outlet regularly heard in the UK.

Re: Solar Cycle 25

"So does the current state of the solar cycle mean less SpE or more SpE?"

Nobody knows!!

2nd half of April skip to Benelux is probably Es. March it is probably the well known HF spring enhancement before the summer doldrums arrive once more.

Re: Solar Cycle 25

You'll probably find the march/april QSOs were F layer - that is not possible now yet given the cycle position.

Es are not dependent on the sun spot cycle though Es/F layer combinations are certainly possible.

Re: Solar Cycle 25

So the Sussex coast has had some pre-season Es and Scotland hasn't. Is this a surprise - it's what I would have expected.

Re: What information do they see?

You must either delete all cookies or use a brand new browser - freshly downloaded (there are a lot of browsers out there).

A new browser with VPN should work unless they are reading MAC addresses - MAC address spoofing is possible but better done with Linux.

Re: What information do they see?

When you say proxy connection do you mean a VPN?

I would imagine they are picking up your IP address. It may be possible that they are picking up the MAC address of the router.

Only way to know is to go to a public library, friends house (or MacDonalds etc) and try there.
