Re: Peter has re-located to Botswana for three months

It's maybe a little late for Austral Es season, but is it the right time for TEP?

Re: Korner 9.2 from Antennenland - in stock

Hello, I am looking forward to buy a 9.2 as first step of a essential upgrade in my equipment (I am a little bored of listening with just my three small portable receivers and I've also figured out that analogue fm dxing has not more than 10 or 15 years of residual life, I fear :( ). But, sadly, it ...

Re: longwave 183 Felsberg off

I have listened to it for the last time at around 10 pm CET. It was there but it seemed to run at reduced power, the signal was much weaker than what strength it was before. Yes, I've tried to listen to it in the late afternoon but the strenght of signal was very low here. There is already a video ...

Re: Saturday onwards

Spain in now on 96.5 with OM studio host and another OM on phone. I suspect it's Cadena SER Gijón. Apart from that NW France is up nicely. Just a tiny, beginner's OT: what does OM stand for exactly? (in Italian, that'd mean MW) OM = Old Man (but OM can also be used in radio enthusiasts' slang as a ...

Re: longwave 183 Felsberg off

According to mediumwave.info, there are been some official messages from the management of Europe 1 confirming the end of broadcast on LW (https://mediumwave.info/news.html ) It's a little sad but it's maybe unavoidable (especially after the end of MW in France). But I don't understand why Europe 1 ...

According to some sites, November 20th wasn't a holiday in Dubai or some kind of religious celebration.
Who knows?

Re: FM Bandscan Dubai UAE XHDATA D-808

A lot of silly music for elevators and (as you can expect) some Quranic broadcasts.
Is it the daily common "menu" of Band 2 in Dubai or that day was a special one for some reasons?

Re: 2019 Es Season winding down

August was quiet until an unusually late spell of activity in the last few days of the month gave some good openings... by this time though, it felt like scoring with a dodgy penalty in the 95th minute.. when you're already 6-0 down. It's really a suitable image for my season too: without those ope...

Re: 2019 Es Season winding down

Just back from a week in Somerset - and catching up on comments. Has anyone noticed the logs posted from Ukraine in the last few days? Some distances suggest F2 propagation or something other than Es. Those logs are been deleted from Fmlist database: has there been an intervention from the board of...

Hello Peter, just a question for my curiosity: the Aerial, is it the same you use for watching tv? Or is another one?
And is it moved by a rotor?
