Re: 0700 file 27-2-20

Worth checking 1330 - At 05:58'19 there is an ID for Radio Autentica Cartagena and then a very clear Cadena Radial Autentica at 06:58'33. A nice new one for me.
A superb Colombian night here.

Re: 1590 North American

I have the same, but deeper into the noise than yours. I can't make it out, but the offset matches exactly where I have been getting WARV. Sounds like KFN news to me, but that makes no sense.

Re: 0700 file 27-2-20

You didn't happen to get an ID from the other Colombian on 1520 from Barranquilla did you Paul ? I've been trying for some time - The carrier is often there on 1520.071, but there was some audio today, but I couldn't get an ID.

1580 - Any ideas ?

A couple of stations competing with CKDO this morning. A talker in Spanish on 1579.995 on and off fron 0430 until 0710 which I haven't found anything like an ID for and one on 1580.011 which came up at 0656 and had this announcement at 06:57 https://app.box.com/s/0o1ca0oi30xocjqjm0hb67y41w3zon0z and...

Re: 1550

I only checked 1550 because of David's question - It's often splattersville down here. Obviously it must be on day power.

Re: 1550

Thanks for the tip David.
I don't know if it is the same station, but I heard Stevie Wonder at 06:00 and this ID at 06:01'44

I'm sure it is "This is WAZX". Not sure if the second stronger OM is the same station or even what he is saying.

Re: Tip: 1360 KKTX Corpus Christi Texas.

Great catches Paul - Both on the totally impossible scale for me as I have a 1359 transmitter less than a mile away.

Re: DX Tip: 920 KARN Little Rock AR

Excellent John and such a good signal as well. Nothing here and 920 at the moment is a very poor frequency for me for some reason. Noise everywhere.

Probably. But even if it worked it would fall apart quicker than the ebay jobs.

Re: 1590 - A real headphone job

It was a long shot - At 4 seconds it sounded to me something like KKFC, which it obviously isn't - Maybe an ad for KFC :D

1590 - A real headphone job

Can anybody make out if this is an ID ?

https://app.box.com/s/47p4d1z7acokzi3yuhfvel74388fdbgh

Heard at 0604 this morning on 1590, just pushing out the dominant WARV.

Offset was around 1589.994

thanks

Good quality "made up" coax.

Can anybody recommend a supplier of reasonable quality made up coax (PL259 to BNC - about 20 metres ) ? In the past I could pay "over the odds" and pick some up down the road at Maplin, but places like that don't exist any more. The last few times I have bought from Amazon or ebay, but they don't se...

Re: bad news

David, I don't know if you picked up from elsewhere, but WHAS was off for an hour or so last night on 840.

I could clearly see the signal drop off just before 0330z and reappear around 0435. Unfortunately, nothing else of interest came up here. Worth a look, though.

Re: Tip - 610 - Radio Itatiaia

I'm really jealous Paul. Never had Uruguay, I'll keep trying, though !

The early part of the night there were quite a few Brazilians floating around, but getting a good ID is the difficult part for me. I think that you have the right idea matching the online streams.

Tip - 610 - Radio Itatiaia

Looking at the power, this may not be DX for some, but I have never had an ID before, although I may have heard it some time back with a football match.

Anyway some good IDs and jingles at 23:00 on 11/02 on 610.

Re: DX Tip: 1490 YVXD Radio Dinamica, Caracas

So good, they posted it twice !

A personal first for me as well. I've been chasing it for a few weeks. A goodish signal coming up every few days, but never with an ID.

There is an ID today at 05:00'41 as well.

Re: The 2019/2020 MW DX Season. Poor?

Certainly worse than my expectations for solar minimum, But, if it wasn't for the reports of others, I wouldn't truly be able to judge. Getting past the local noise is becoming more of a chore every year. First there is the band wide general noise and then I have to notch and/or switch usb/lsb to tr...

Well done John - and from the offset, it was that strong station I was puzzling over a couple of weeks ago.
