Re: Conditions

Well winter doesn't start until 21 December!! Autumn overall has been superb for NA MF DX. I think there have been some disturbances recently though at local midnight I have been getting 570/580/590/620/680/730/930/940/950 all booming in at S9. You should try running wjtx-x FT8 to see what marginal ...

Re: 10-32000 kHz omni-dir antenna instead of MiniWhip?

You can’t have an omni-directional loop. And you want to attenuate the direction of your loudest noise sources.

An alternative direction is to have two antennas and phase cancel the noise.

One or two still exist. Radio Britannia is currently reported on 1476 kHz.

Re: 1611 kHz UK Free Radio Station

It's not Norway's Northern Star - not // to their stream and it's still audible now. I've done some DF readings and the path indicates Northern Ireland or the East Midlands. I'm inclined to say it's from NI as I can see the carrier on the Lytham St Anne's kiwi sdr but not on Midland SDRs.

Re: dx tip 8/12

Didn't record overnight - no real excuses but a bottle of decent red, crap food and great conversation at local club do probably played a part... Here in the western coastal scouselands I would have to say 590 and 930 would take the honours though both the beantown and canuck 680 outlets can be very...

1611 kHz UK Free Radio Station

There is a UK free radio station on 1611 kHz which has a weak signal at my western coastal scouselands QTH. Last night it was playing non-stop pop/oldies and this morning it is playing old Radio Fax tapes announcing 6205 kHz.

Anyone else getting this?

Thanks

Thanks - Davie.

Thanks - Simon. I think I have WMBD but will have to remain presumed. Thanks for the comment on the audio level - certainly sounds good on my kit!

Cheers

Did WMAU have ABC at TOTH? I've just put a clip on RDX from 0700 yesterday which has a W call sign station with ABC News. Offset was around 1470.002.

Re: Ideal MWDX Equipment?

Well increasing QRN levels are what prompted research into Loops/EWE/Flags/Pennants etc. A long wire on the roof now would just be a noise receptor in urban/suburban environments.

Re: 1470 - 0500 sign off

Thanks for the list - all three Wallasey txers were/are locked but 1197 has bitten the dust of course.

Cool

Re: 1470 - 0500 sign off

"Wallasey 1485 is supposedly locked to 1485.0000" Where did you hear/read this, JF? I have met a lad in the local radio club who works for Arquiva and actually turned off the Absolute Radio outlet on 1197 from Wallasey recently. Last time I met him I asked him to see if he could find out if 1215 was...

Re: 1470 - 0500 sign off

John - what Jag settings do you use to get the continuous spectrum display? I assume you are using latest V4? Also - I am interested in why are you using BBC Merseyside for calibration? I usually use 909 or 1215 - however BBC Scousey is about 5 miles line of sight from here and makes 1480/90 unusabl...
