Re: Philippines in Skegness ....

I was lucky. I Am Radio faded in and out this evening. Conditions were obviously less favourable to the south-east, even from European signals. I only spotted this because I knew the DWUN carrier offset, which peaked VERY briefly just as I Am had been on a fade. Pure luck! What is interesting, as I ...

Re: The Conditions Thread

Simon:
The same thing here with the audio from the 1510 daytimer ... It only ever appears just before closedown, as if deliberately.

DaveB:
Congratulations! I knew you'd do it. You'll definitely be hearing more Asiatic DX along the way, noise permitting of course.

Re: The Conditions Thread

Lots of stuff just below the surface here. Oldies on 1480 (1479.9904) is probably WGVU. Best around 0230. WSAR dominant. Jim Bohannon and Westwood One on 1420 overnight, so probably WBSM. That religious station on 1510 is there again, slightly clearer than last night, but leaving no clues once again...

Re: The Conditions Thread

I tried to clean up your recording, but not a lot of improvement and nothing to go on. https://app.box.com/s/9o8dmdvsf5rp6781s90am6bcj9sitl5f I can just hear the station here, but not as clearly as you, if 'clearly' is the word. The same station pops up a few times though and I hope I can find an ID...

Re: Skegness Files: 2015-07-08 (Es: C SW & S Europe & Turkey)

I wish I had more time at the moment to go through these after yu have kindly identified some new stations for me.

Firstly, I was asked for the audio of my suspected Iranian reception on 87.6. I am trying to find that and upload a recording.

Re: Jaguar 4

Sounds good. It's good to keep the older versions, at least for a short while. I will be using the v4 AUTOSCAN permanently now. Probably too much juice for my laptop, so I may use v3.1 for that, unless I slow down the autoscan speed. Tests needed.

Re: The Conditions Thread

Improved North American conditions overnight. Decided to de-stress today and play radio. Some detailed notes after checking the band. 760 Is that religion on 760.0045? WCHP on high power overnight? 870 Probably WWL. Weak talk.870.9918. 960 Sports. Probably WEAV. 970 THREE stations just at audio leve...

Re: Jaguar 4

I am still getting used to Jaguar v4. Try AUTOSCAN, available from the "S" button, same location towards the bottom left. This replaces DAYSCAN and EXTENDED SCAN. There's also MONITOR and HOMESCAN in there, which I haven't used yet. I am running AUTOSCAN all the time, for 9 kHz Asiatic DX in the eve...

Two nights ago, 20C at midnight with high humidity is way too uncomfortable for sleeping. Bring on winter!

Nothing of interest noted from Asia yesterday evening.

Re: 1420 - 18/9

I think it's a combination of two stations. There is a Newstalk 14-20 ID in the first, but it seems to be abruptly taken over by the letters "AVR", which would point to CKDY Digby NS. CKDY are on the AVR country network and have been known to announce this as an ID frequently. I can only guess that ...

Re: dx tip 18/9

Appreciated, as always David. 99% CJYQ here.

Something else does struggle, and fails to make inroads at 0300. Whatever it is has talk and very slightly lower in offset to CJYQ.

Re: 1480 The Team

WSAR are "ABC The Legendary", according to Topaz. http://topazdesigns.com/ambc/

I thought WHBC to begin with, but they are listed as Fox Newstalk Radio.

It's probably one of these.

1480 The Team

https://app.box.com/s/5ma3kmzgogfvy9g08emp93nz30866a8m

Is he saying 14-80 The Team?

ID seems to be "Sportsradio ... your home for news, talk and sports. 14-80 ....... "

At 46 seconds I hear "14-80 The Team".

At 58 seconds I repeat with noise filtering.

Re: Sick as a parrot!

I have ferrited around with these things for years, but there is good advice in choosing a quality ferrite - and with the right 'values', though I never understood that bit. I have never known a clip-on to work yet, but I'm sure some must do. I have had cheap and high quality Fair-Rite too.
