Loggings - Added some more details to the logs from the 27th. In particular 101.7 is R Panorama from Greece with 600 Watts, 97.7 is R Stn Lehovo with 2 kW.

Propagation - Any other time, today would have been called a good day for Band 2 dx. Plenty to hear again today, just not quite in the same league as the weekend. Would have heard more except I had my little helper, and he wants to play football etc. So a lot of auto-logging and recordings done on 87.6 MHz.

Propagation - Morning opening to Tunisia/Italy which then progressed to Spain/Portugal. The auto-logging was on 87.6, and I got home at 1140, when it had already moved round to Spain.

More Comment - When the band was really open to Greece, there were stations on every channel. But very few appeared to have RDS, or at least not much was decodable. The stations weren't overly strong, around 20dB on the Sony, but the band was full, and I mean full!

May 26, 2000

Propagation - Just installed a 6 element Yagi in the loft beaming SSW, and came back down to see what difference it made ... and up popped Spain and Portugal. Even stranger is the fact that it's been pouring with rain for the last 4 hours, hardly Sporadic E weather.

Propagation - Couple of brief meteor pings earlier this morning.

Websites - Updated some of the Spanish & Italian radio websites on this page, also Radio Subasio and Radio Radicale.

May 24, 2000

Propagation - Couple of brief bursts of Italian on 87.6 around 1300, and RTBF rose above the noise occasionally. Also a very weak Indian or Arab station right in the noise 1300-1600, time pips on the hour, but not identified ... very weak. Possibly a satellite receiver spurious output, but it did vary in strength and died away when the rain started.

RSL - James Vertigan found Radio St Helier's website.

Websites - Added a handful more UK ILR websites to the Commercial RDS Page.

May 23, 2000

Propagation - Nothing noted today.

May 22, 2000

Propagation - 1 hour E's opening to Italy, Sardinia and Tunisia. Then a gap as the propagation swung around to Spain (Galicia) and Portugal. After checking various Italian websites, seems that Sardinia was definitely the preferred area today.

RDS - Choice FM on 96.9 now RDS as Choice-S and they've changed the PI code to C8B2. Choice-N (PI:C9B2) on 107.1 MHz launched May 3rd as planned. Both provide London-wide coverage in my observations.

RDS - Lloyd also noticed the two Wessex transmitters on 96.0 and 97.2 radiate slightly differing PS Names ... WESSEX__ and _WESSEX_

May 4, 2000

Propagation - Some minor tropo lifts today, noticed by Vincent Lo hearing KLFM for first time, also Dutch people were hearing some main UK transmitters up as far as Manchester.

RSL - Allison Barrow, Radio Development Assistant at the Radio Authority provided this explanation for their RSL pages being so out of date.

Please accept my apologies for not updating the RSL lists recently. We have had some staffing
problems lately in our IT department. We have now recruited a new IT administrator, and hope
to have the list functioning properly again soon.

UK Locals - Choice FM started official programming this morning on 107.1 MHz serving North London from a transmitter at Alexandra Palace. (James Vertigan).
