David, I do the very same things and not just once lately.

I have hung on to my recordings from the excellent conditions on November 1st so I can make some videos o the exotic stuff, but I still haven't found time to go through everything.

What day is it? :lol:

David, there are lots of free file recovery tools out there. I have recovered SDR files that I have deleted in the past. So long as you haven't done much on the drive since it should be possible. Puran File Recovery worked for me. Simon

It's the smaller files which can be retrieved. Large files such as SDR recordings get overwritten far too easily. I have rarely been able to recover an SDR file, unless I have just deleted it. "Recuva" is the programme I use.

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.

Stuart, I don't think that you have a call on you recording it sounds to me like ".... to you every night". The first word sounds like Capital, but that doesn't make sense. And the audio level is fine !

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

Stuart
