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

Looking forward to your logs. What time zone are you? CET?
What sort of static level do you get there, and is 60m still used in the region?

Re: longwave 183 Felsberg off

I understand that Europe 1 has announced the cessation of its LW service at the end of the year. There is no mention of 183 on the https://www.europe1.fr/frequences]liste des fréquences and I can't find any other references to the termination. The convention is to turn off your AM tx at midnight at ...

Durris! It's over coastal land and sea path. Fort William is beaming up and down the Caledonian valley and has got the odd Ben in the way :D

Re: RTE 252 going qrt?

Now carrying programme RTE1. Carrier level is the same, except it's gone up a bit after dark, so disregard my comment about variable carrier power

Re: RTE 252 going qrt?

Clarkestown is back on (or someone is ;) ) It's a massive signal, no mod yet except a bit of Luxembourg, about 3dB below Droitwich 198 here Tim says the qrg is spot on 252000, had been 2Hz low Must be a new tx, I suspect it's one of those types that can do DC modulation and they are testing at 4 x n...

Heritage Radio, Manchester

The FM service, long promised on their website, has now come on air, on 90.6 with a Community Radio licence. The signal is strong driving around S M'cr and I presume it is co-sited with other CR at Manchester One [Portland Tower] with the usual 25W. The programme is different to the 1602kHz tx in Wh...

Re: Iceland 207 Khz

I also like the DC-360, but mine was killed by static and is in the 'repair pending' pile so nowadays I use a Yacht-Boy 400 which is very good on LW so maybe yours needs a front-end tweak. Clarkestown 252 is currently off air for maintenance and from late evening and Algeria Chaîne 3 is usually at d...

Re: SkywavesDX Transfer Complete!

All looks good here! The hosting has not changed so I don't think there are any issues about propagation, but I did get a page of error notices when I submitted this post. It nevertheless uploaded correctly. Maybe I wasn't logged in correctly

Radio France latest downsizing

The Radio France state subsidy is to be further cut under the plan "Radio France 2022" according to Le Monde
It sounds as though the first noticeable consequence will be termination of local opt-outs on FIP, not sure when

RadioToday says Gala test tx have begun, so I did a retune, but nothing there, only HEAT which causes the rx to hang on a non-DAB+ rx, or 'unavailable' on a modern rx

Thanks BP. I use notepad constantly, though not for anything clever. I will install Notepad++ next time I can close all tabs and windows on my PC ;) I suppose you can have 20 tabs open in Notepad++ ? or do you have to run separate instances?
