Unfortunately I recorded with stock Perseus rather than Jaguar Pro which has much superior audio. I've u...

Re: dx tip

Don't you have a semi-local "beacon" station that you can check reception on?

If there is an issue check coax connection to balun.

Re: VFO Scan In Progress

Recorded overnight last two nights in western Scouselands on Wellbrook Loop and sweet f.a. for either NA or LA dx.

I don't believe v1361 (or later) will work with Elad. The SDR# author removed support. You have the correct extio* files. You just need to find an earlier version than 1361 of sdr#.

Re: I give up!!!

To do Band II dxing in London you need a Sony XDR-F1HD - preferably with the Konrad mod.

Re: 23 July 2018. How hot is it where you are in the UK?

I just checked and the BBC forecast high is 27C for Skeggers.

Here it is 34 in the shade on its way to 37/38 I would estimate - forecast high is 36. Curtains are closed of course and door ad-jar.

Close the curtains and open the windows slightly is the best advice.

In the Cabardes badlands of southern Occitania we are expecting a high of 35C at 17.00 this afternoon.

Stay frosty out there :-)

Re: Argentina 820

Yes - I dx'd MF in NW London for many years using a Flag antenna reasonably successfully. Quite lucky I think in that I never had any game stopping noise. Now moved from London to England.

The best continental signal in the smoke is 94.7 France Bleu Nord. The slightest tropo enhancement and it's in.

Re: unusually quiet sunday in North West

MAR were on 105 with a weak signal in western scouselands. Coming from the Pool itself I would say. Andy had weak signal on 87.5 from Manclands.
