Re: 1510 - 14/9

It should move off Yahoo to Groups IO - you are right there. Do you also try and ID stations for others? I honestly don't know if you do or don't but It's always good to contribute when you can.

Re: Sick as a parrot!

And a Flag antenna is a superb beast. Uni-directional for MF and works very well on 48m and even up to 10m as Davey H says. I always give him credit for introducing the Flag to me. Pay attention to the balun tho I'm not convinced the exact number of turns and turn ratio is that critical. The BN-73-2...

CBG Gander was dominant for me in western Scouselands at that time.

Re: Season review

Well I don't get it. Complain about the lack of contacts and spurn the mode which will enable contacts....

Plenty of M0 and GM stations in bonny Scotland as I worked several this year from the Cabardes badlands. Guess MM3s can use the down time to advance in the qualifications.

Re: Season review

Any digital mode is computer to computer so FT8 is no different there......Have you tried decoding rtty or JT65 in your head? Thought not :-) A human is required to engineer the station set-up of course - rig, antenna, feeder, atu, interface, pc, software etc etc. What is quite interesting about FT8...

Re: Season review

Been an excellent season for the amateurs. Personally only been able to operate the last 1/3 of the season on Occitania but still managed state-side on 6m ssb. Bigger stations have worked worldwide most months - India, Bahrain, Kuwait on 6m. Greenland on 4m from UK. FT8 has been a game changer of co...

Re: Sounds like the Australian ABC News Jingle on 1548

Hmmm. To be honest I initially didn't bother to listen as I thought ABC was impossible. However after reading some R-DX responses saying they could hear nothing I was intrigued. JF has his faults (don't we all :-) ) but a good pair of dx ears are not amongst them. So I listened (with decent phones o...

Re: DX Tip

I didn't record overnight as thunder and lightning forecast.

John - You have a Radio Continental ID on your clip. Not sure of the connection between Radio Novas de Paz and Radio Continental. Perhaps the former is carried by the latter?

Cheers

Nice one JF. You probably saw on Real DX but my 1440 "Argentinian" was HIAK 1440 AM Radio Impactante Santo Domingo Dom Rep. This morning was nothing like as good though Cordillera id'd at 0300 - just peaking up at the right time. Yesterday and the day before will be worthy of further study I feel. P...
