Re: Are we having fun yet?

I always think the season really gets going in the last days of May but we are already going well. May 19th was superb, I have an absolute tonne of recordings to go through.

Anyone know the source of packet type data signals from Europe in the 40. 66 - 40.7 mhz range. Asking for a friend.

Re: England via E skip!!!!

Listened to the file back, yeah it seems to be E skip alright. I also have a female English accented voice on 95.1 but all three freqs are mixing with Germany. I'll keep digging. Crazy opening.

England via E skip!!!!

Looking at recordings from this evenings short skip opening - on one file at 1934 I have Dutch and Belgian stations AND on 91.9 and 94.1 Tacolneston, Norfolk fading up and down in parallel with my local R3 and R4. Around the same time I had a slew of G stations from East Anglia on 6m. I'm in a valle...

Re: Hourglass antenna

Thanks so much Dave for modelling it. I calculated for 92 mhz and it's showing lowest SWR just below 91.9 on my RigExpert AA230. Support is non conductive. I was very surprised how well it actually worked. A balun I must try. Preamp would go against my initial idea of just wire, but can you suggest ...

E skip opening March 24th

Finally got to the end of all the recordings I made during this opening, the best I have ever seen in March and maybe the best ever to Catalunya that I've seen. A zero cost wire double loop antenna worked extremely well landing not only big guns but also small stations never heard before. Fabulous o...

Hourglass antenna

So I've been messing around with a double delta loop for FM. Original design here: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/QST/This%20Month%20in%20QST/December2018/Stanley.pdf Worked pretty good today during the E opening allowing reception of several firsts! With less pick up from local stations the E skip ...

Re: DX Tip: 1090 WBAL Baltimore MD

Radio 1 used to go off air at night in the 80s making WBAL an easy catch here, as was WCAU on 1210 from Philadelphia. WBAL Still heard sometimes after dawn which probably explains this reception from 2007: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=defaXLMf4w0
