Re: Jaguar 4

No. You can do a screen grab though.

Re: Late DX Tip: 17-10-18

Good spot on the WWBC - just came up in western coastal Scouselands at 2300.

This week has seen some amazing signal strengths from North America.

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Never got a null that broad. Though the Flag is inherently uni-directional so will accentuate signals off its back anyway.

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

The Canadian eBay seller used to sell both - fixed and variable. The null is frequency dependent and to be honest I don't bother anymore. In France there are so many Spanish stations to the south it is not worth the effort to null one. I suppose I could try and null 1485 here to open up 1480/90 but ...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Removing 90% of noise is a fantastic achievement. The s/n ratio much more important than signal strength alone for receiving. I have always said you don't need a pre-amp on MF if you have a decent balun and coax. And I have shown it again here. The Wellbrook loop is a good performer but in a urban/s...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

My flag uses B&Q green "grow-poles" (is that what they are called?) about 2m long. Both are wedged into 30kg concrete parasol stands and the bottom horizontal section is on the ground. I use tape to hold balun and resistors in place half-way up poles. In France I use 2.5m wooden poles into parasol s...

Re: 13-10-18 Observations

Well this lazy SOB finally erected a Flag antenna - weird beast with dimensions 10 x 2m. My home-brewed binoc balun had a problem (just like in the Cabardes badlands in summer) so pinch-hit with a commercial flag balun from the ebay Canadian seller. And it all seems to be working very well. Saturday...

Re: A weird one on 1540

At 05:59:55 yesterday morning (04 Oct) I had a "15-40 KXEL" ID though there were 2/3 stations co-channel.

Re: The season so far?

I think it has been a good season so far. Though I have moved from London to England and still need to fully "learn " this QTH (and my antenna set-up is un-optimal) I think that the path has been open to NA or SA most overnights. Seems promising for the winter - fingers crossed as ever for no bad no...

Re: A weird one on 1540

It is CHIN as Franck Baste had it in mid September. There was a CHIN ID "AM1540 and simulcasting on 91.9 FM" before an old time radio programme with ads for Chesterfield cigarettes.

Re: Jaguar 4

Jaguar does write log files to the recording locations so that is probably the issue.

Are V3 and V4 both in separate folders with their own jaguar.ini files?

Re: dx tip 25/9

Here's a weird one sent to RDX - OM wailing with flute on 1060 kHz at 0600 24 September. It's not the WQOM MA station which had different programming at same time.
