What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 09 Jan 2019 10:30

Since Holland has left 1008, I hear something Arabic in the late afternoons/evenings. Probably Egypt or Iran.

Yesterday, I heard CNR1 from China. probably from the Kunming transmitter.

No Greece so far.

What are YOU hearing?

Thanks Klaus.

I haven't heard Pakistan or Greece on 1008. I will look for Pakistan this afternoon. They have a very distinctive synthetic brass-stab news jingle and three rather primitive sounding time pips on the hour. https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=nHQCNTZignI

Cadena SER Radio Badajoz, Extremadura district is audible from early afternoon.
During the evening hours, I hear a second station of the same content with echo.
However, I cannot identify this SER outlet to be either Girona or Alicante unsure.

Iran in Farsi language and Egypt in Arabic have been barely audible as dx signals.
no trace of Greece found back so far in Northern Germany, would like to qsl this.

Thanks P-FM. Spain is here right now (Almost 1am local time) on a high offset of 0123.

But here's what I recorded at 16:00:

Chariots Of Fire song extract, part of a national anthem, but an unidentified language. I'll bet this is either Egypt or Iran as it sounds Arabic-ish, but the national anthem doesn't tie up to any anthem I have found on YouTube.

Unable to compare right now due to lack of audio, but as 1008 Egypt is about to relay Voice of Palestine, did you try the NA of Palestine called Fida'i ?

Iraq is also believed to use that certain frequency, what about their NA called Mawtini ?

No doubt it's Arabic and the time signal is distinctively Egyptian. The distorted modulation also fits to Egypt. The piece of march music isn't necessarily a national anthem. Egyptian and other Arab stations often use pieces of martial music as news openers.

Thank you Matthias. You are not the only person who has advised that this is Egypt. Still, a nice new catch.

Spain - Cadena SER, maybe the Extremadura relay but I have not ID'ed it yet.

Spain also on 621 kHz for me, RNE. Maybe a good chance now to get the Canarias relay although upto now it would most likely be from mainland Spain.

This is all indoors, when on my next DXpedition I will try to setup my SDR to hear if anything else apart from Spain can be received at my location.

Yesterday, at about 17:30 CET, I've heard for the very first time Greece with a good signal, not very strong but nicely QRM free (anyway I suppose that they are operating on less than the 50 Kw reported on MWlist).
Later, at 20:45 CET, there was two different signals from SER with a slight echo and nothing at all from Greece .

Hello, Canarias was heard during night New Years Eve - New Years Day with local broadcast in Germany!

Indeed, 2 or even 3 RNEs / SERs currently on 621 and 1008 (no Greece here so it might be 5-10 kW)

try 621 with Tiraspol in the early morning hours weekedays. the music is definitely worth it
