Re: Conditions 07/11

I'm probably not the person to help on this as my location can be extremely variable for transatlantic conditions. Conditions are subdued here. I can hear regular east coasters, but not with any great strength. I have rock music on 1540 too close to KCKK's offset. I am sure this must be Radio Bahama...

Re: unid 1350

Sounds Spanish to me. At 20 seconds, I hear the woman say Radio Sutatenza. She seems to repeat it twice. There's no Sutatenza listed in MW List. Then at 49 seconds I hear a possible rushed Radio Ciudad De Mar, but that one's not at all clear. With conditions the way they are I would be inclined to e...

That should be it. It is quite distinctive with its slight drift.

Re: Pakistan?

Do you have the top of the hour on this? I know the jingle they use and would spot it in the noise if it's weak then.

Re: Tropo 5/11/18

I didn't know there was any tropo. Just checked and solid signals from Germany here. No time to listen right now. :(

Seems to be mostly Rheinland-Pfalz, extending into central Germany.

Re: Far-East increasing on MW!

That's a shame. TWR can be a pest here, but I find Forth 2 the main problem. There are two other stations too, neither of which will allow me to receive 4QD in the clear.

Re: Far-East increasing on MW!

Laszlo, can you ever receive 4QD on 1548? There's always a carrier here. It's often up to audio levels, but there's not chance of hearing it because of FOUR co-channel Europeans.

I have the same problem Simon. v4 is under test, so not a 'final beta' or whatever they call these things.

Re: DX recordings Korea (N.+S.)

Alas, I have been looking towards Asia over the last days of excellent North American DX. My experience is usually always less Asiatic DX when North America is very good.

Re: non-US unid - 972 Asia with 4x beep time signal

Welcome to Skywaves AMDXHUN! I sometimes hear Japanese time signals on 747 and 774, but signals are always too weak for audio. I will keep an ear on these frequencies. PFM - Definitely Chinese time signals. I only hear four pips. (Three low and the last one an octave higher.) Some Chinese signals ar...

Alaska & Greenland MW Now!

KBRW audio just breaking above the noise on 680.

Greenland loud and proud on 570 and 680.

Good DX!

Re: 1510 - Latin Religious ?

KCKK has been a regular here lately. Nothing much heard here this morning. I can't make our anything on your clip David. I wondered about Mexico, but nothing to go on there.

Yep. The Californian was on my mind, but this Minnesota rarity sits in my log just fine. :)

Re: Tropo 25/10/18

That's right Nick. Some FDM-S2 owners find the band 2 section a little deaf, hence using a masthead amplifier. The XDR is simply superb as an off-the-shelf DX machine, thanks to its selectivity. But I wouldn't have thought you could improve on the brick wall selectivity of an SDR. The audio quality ...

Re: Early TA DX

That is such a shame. The situation is very similar here, but careful positioning of the flag really helps, as you will know. I can get my noise down to -125 dB to -135 dB if I am lucky. If the noise is as high as -120 dB then it's not worth DXing. I can just hear noise at -130 dB. These figures are...

I had WHBY a few times. 1150 is another very badly splattered channel here.
