Re: Ofcom have been busy in London

The best continental signal in the smoke is 94.7 France Bleu Nord. The slightest tropo enhancement and it's in.

Re: unusually quiet sunday in North West

MAR were on 105 with a weak signal in western scouselands. Coming from the Pool itself I would say. Andy had weak signal on 87.5 from Manclands.

Re: Interesting Phenomenon Noticed During Intense Tropo (and Es!)

"I put this down to the tuners knocking the gain back due to high signal levels"

That's exactly what I was going to suggest - it's the tuner's AGC action.

Re: Elad FDM S2 weird images.

Ah - you should have said that earlier....

Probably a loose connection somewhere which allows in moisture when raining. If you take out the coax earth connection on Band II signals you get some strange effects due to the high signal strengths.

Re: Little activity

You are becoming a Band II dxer. The ability to moan about lack of Es and Es in the wrong direction is of vital importance! :D :D :D

Re: ES North Africa

I believe this is NOT Horizon FM, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso via multi hop.

I believe it is probably Talk Radio Europe from southern Spain who just happen to relay the BBC WS at this time...

That's it - the jingle is for Darty - large French white goods/electronics outlet.

Re: Best SDR free Software for R820T2 dongle

The cheap RTL chip devices will overload in crowded bands - they are 8 bit devices. You can try and use low/high pass filters as appropriate.

Re: 3x E-Skip UNID - S/W Europe

The jingle bit at 32/33s is part of the supermarket ad. It's very common - I think it is IM but could be Leclerc.

Re: 3x E-Skip UNID - S/W Europe

There is no ID in the first French clip. The ad is for a supermarket - Geant, Leclerc or Intermarche. I can't remember which one has that jingle but think it is IM.

98.8 - do I hear Majorca around 3s?

I can not understand some dxers! They moan about no Es in March and April (yeah, me too...) and then moan when there are Es in June!
