Re: Algeria and Spain Now

I only got two Algerians on FM, 87.7 and 88.4, (both with ID), despite big 6m signals from Italy, France and Spain.

Re: XHDATA D-808 unboxing includes Es

Hello Peter, according to Amazon, next wednesday in the afternoon I'll be able to compare this Tecsun with my modified Degen DE 1103 (filters 110+80). ;) I really hope that the newcomer could amaze me. Hello Franco I hope you get some OIRT FM Es to compare your radios. The old PLL Degen with modifi...

Re: Es 15/6/2019

Nothing above 6m here, and just CW and FT8 no SSB.
For FT8 decoding I used my FCD Pro+ directly in the WSJT-X software, no SDR app needed! Video later.

Re: XHDATA D-808 unboxing includes Es

Hello Peter, I am sorry but I had lost your answers into the daily flow of posts. The PL-398 seems fitting to replace for OIRT-dxing my modified ATS 909, exausted after more than 10 years of use; even if the bandwith seems narrow, I don't dare to hope that it will be good also for dxing between 87....

Re: Bring back Spain on Band 1.

I started with TVDX back in the eighties, and progressed to FM when I got a tuner with a digital display in the 90s.
I've been thinking a lot about 'the good old days' of European Band I TVDX.

Re: XHDATA D-808 unboxing includes Es

Hello Franco, I just had my first OIRT FM reception since teceiving the D-808. Just to confirm the XHDATA D-808 works fine on the OIRT FM band. The Tecsun PL-398MP is slightly better on OIRT, but the longer whip and narrower bandwidth could account for that. I'll posts some videos later. Peter Black...

Same here. VLC says it's an audio file but it's silent.

Is it an I/Q file? If so, I won't be able to play it.
Nick, all the files he uploads to Mega are IQ files. All players think they are normal WAV files and play them but if course there is no audio.

Re: Es 29/05/19

Arrived with me just before 1700 UTC. Quite weak at first, but I've managed to ID la Cadena SER, a los 40 and a brace of Cadena Ciens from my IQ fies so far. No stations with RDS. Nothing from POR yet. Spain faded fairly quickly. Peter Blackpool Here is a video of 88.2 SER https://youtu.be/XoOzmyIK...
