Re: Chile - Colombia 5000 km TEP on Tecsun Portable.

Not bad for a portable and telescopic rod. Must have been one hell of an opening. Many FM DXers in Brazil got FM TEP on portables during the last Solar Max period. Peter in Botswana, have you ever seen TEP? The conditions are almost the same for reception No not yet. I am much further from the geom...

Leonids 2021

Won't be prolific for several years yet, but activity is fair. Meteors are swift (71km/s), which means good Meteor Scatter, including trains. Available in both The Northern and Southern Hemispheres. I have info on two possible peaks: 2021-11-17 17:03:57 UTC (IMO) 2021-11-19 04:17:47 UTC (Stellarium)...

TEP can occur on an East-West axis within approx +/- 15˚ of the Geomagnetic Equator.

TEP does mean TransEquatorial Propagation, but the term does not apply strictly to the literal sense.

Re: UNID English 98.6

I don't have the facility to decode SDR# files, but I can say that it's almost certainly Angel Radio from Fort Widley near Portsmouth. It started up last month. It broadcasts music from the 1940s-1960s. Nick those are audio files that he has zipped not IQ WAV files. "AF" is the clue ;) Pe...
