Re: Semi-locals from Iran

This got lost in the e season, very useful for IDs. I had tentative Iran during the Cyprus opening, 87.6 it was painfully weak, burst of yl presenter. I have an IQ file but most people cant even hear that there's a station there. It was wierd getting Iran tropo in Cyprus, it just felt like Iran shou...

does 108.0 look this bad everywhere?

No this isn't 1470 medium wave overnight! it's 108mhz on a weekday, at least 5 of these are legitimate txs with stereo sidebands. This doesn't even include the passing i-trips that pop up. Thanks Andy for IDing one of these as a Manchester pirate, that's the lower of the 2 Very close blue traces. Wh...

Re: 108 continuous stereo carrier @ approx 290 degrees

Thanks Andy ,I seem to have two carriers 40 Hz apart on 108 which is why my attempt at direction finding was so spectacularly wrong Do mar have more than one tx on 108? I saw one at 107.998 yesterday but I wonder if they have another ps: am measuring the stereo carrier(s) at 107.981.xxx to be sure i...

108 continuous stereo carrier @ approx 290 degrees

there seems to be an abandoned pirate tx on 108.000364 , possibly somewhere in merseyside maybe it's wired into the electric in some council building and can't be accessed to turn it off I've heard of TXs getting walled up , like the famous radio galaxy 88.7 tx in Chelmsford, will that still be goin...

North Manchester FM dead air 106.6

the blank carrier is unstable but covering a large area on V Pol
qrg: 106.5997345v

now is a good chance for you to detect this as a carrier if this station is rare for you

IQ file coming if you want to hear how rough it is
