Re: 31 July 2020 - It Ain't Half Hot Mum!

Heathrow reached 37.8C or exactly 100F. This just as a peak of a 2-day wonder shows how much impact climate change is having.

I predict a 40C+ before this decade is out.

Re: UNID UK

Probably BBC Radio Guernsey from Les Touillets. The accent sounds like SW England and that station joins other stations in that region (e.g. Cornwall, Devon, Somerset) in the evenings.

Re: 88.9 - Lindin ?

Hi Simon. I'd say it was Lindin with a sung jingle. I had this station yesterday with full RDS, but it may be a day or so before I can get the recording online to compare it.

Lindin is a religious station, so the content would also fit.

Re: Moscow received yesterday evening

Actually the reception from 24.8.19 was even better:

Re: Moscow received yesterday evening

Thanks PFM907. Here's the recording of Radio Mayak on 102.5. You can also hear me comparing the stream to confirm reception:

Looking through my recordings I realised I also received it on 24th August last year, which I'd forgotten about.

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

I wonder if SWR has been on in recent weeks? Some weekends I've heard a very weak signal on 87.6 playing house music that peaks in the direction of Southampton. In fact I remember hearing it last weekend.

Thanks very much Jorge. Perhaps this was a regional opt-out. Definitely a bit confusing!

Moscow received yesterday evening

Hi all. During the Sporadic-E opening yesterday evening towards the Baltic, I logged Like FM on 87.9 from Moskva/Balashikha at 2606 km: https://app.box.com/s/yrb3oelzxvvoarxpfc5pr0ca9ypc1yx1 This reception was at 1805 UTC, and was the only signal logged from this site. This may have been an example ...

96.9 - unlisted Algerian?

Hi all. This was received during an opening to Algeria earlier today (July 18th) on 96.9: https://app.box.com/s/xdg4mqi0il6ax29q7d92ksksuvo52b9l It didn't match the stream for the only Algerian listed on that channel, Radio Coran (it had Quranic prayers), and I tried the streams for Tunisia and Moro...

Re: UNID on 100.5 - Ukraine?

This has now been identified thanks to Mauno Ritola on the Yahoo Skywaves group. It's UR 1 Persha Prog from Dobryans'ke (UKR) with just 200 watts. Here's a clip Mauno linked to with the same part as my recording 30 seconds in: ukr.radio/schedule/play-archive.html?periodItemID=2533809 A very interest...

UNID on 100.5 - Ukraine?

Hi again. This was recorded on 100.5 during an opening that was mainly to Italy but included a period of reception to Bulgaria, Romania, and Serbia. This signal turned up in the middle of this, and I presumed it may have been Radio Moldova, but Bosko in Serbia had a listen and thinks that the langua...

Re: Portuguese FM reception South West Ireland last week (9th July 2020)

Hi there. This is in fact probably more interesting than you think. What's the take-off like more to the SW, rather than south? Because it looks like those stations came not from the Portuguese mainland, but the Azores. Antena 2 on 105.8 is from Horta (there are no Antena 2 txes on 105.8 on the Port...

Do these stations do split programming? They are both listed from the same site.

Interesting.

If TV Scan is off air on 108.0, then what is the Albanian I've received on there twice this season? Maybe it was a different station from a different site?
