Re: UNID from The Netherlands

I was told that they could be in the order of a kW and sometimes more, but this was before the crack-down a few years ago.

Re: UNID from The Netherlands

The Dutch pirate streams site at http://geheimezender.com/Piraten_Streams.php lists Station H.U.P. on 100.0. Whether this is them I do not know, but the RDS does not point to this. I presume that is a phone number "06 57 890 855". There is bound to be a website for reporting such Dutch pirates as th...

Re: Es Canary Islands

Nice one Nick. I got 9 Radio 87.9. Also two vocal IDs within seconds of each other on 87.6, Cadena Cien and 7.7 Radio which I suppose could have been the same site. I logged that tentatively. Also Radio ECCA from San Bartolomé on 90.4 and RNE Clasica 87.7. San Bartolomé was the furthest site here at...

Re: BBC Radio Scotland Dumfries

Thanks Barry. Good to know 580 and 590 will be a little clearer now. That's the DXer's point of view at least. Many will be saddened because it's the end of an era.

I also posted this to RealDX btw, just in case I am unlucky here. I thought it was was Taiwan at first, but ...

Re: Unidentified stations from 17-07-15

Thanks for the info PFM. I just checked back through my loggings as I have often reported Himmelhof on 87.8. So I thought I should check my log to make sure I am not mistaken. When I tentatively received a very low powered transmitter, I always need to make sure that I can confirm this by receiving ...

Re: Unidentified stations from 17-07-15

Hello! :) I didn't see this yesterday. Lucky I spotted it just now. THANK YOU very much for your help. So I had received one of the two lower power outlets of Ö1? So do they have local opt-outs? I see Wien's 800 watt transmitter on this frequency. This is really interesting if I had one of the two l...

Thanks Matthias. Thailand has been received again, but not with the Chinese time signal in the background, as per my recording - which I forgot to mention! A few Chinese time signals are still getting through but there are evenings when nothing at all is heard from China. So conditions are variable,...
