Spurious - BBC R Gloucestershire appears to have fixed the spurious emission.

Spurious - BBC R Gloucestershire is radiating a strong spurious emission on 1493.5 kHz. It's coming from the Berkeley Heath transmitter (500 Watts nominal on 1413 kHz). This is propagating very well, and has already been logged in Denmark, Holland and at Sheigra. Engineers at the station know about the problem and Crown Castle are aware and working to rectify it. The 1493.5 kHz emission is proving easier to hear than their allocated channel of 1413 kHz for many people outside the local area.

Propagation - Still quite a few meteors around overnight, but none during the day today.

26 MHz - Heard the DeutscheTelekom test transmission from Jülich this afternoon on 25740 kHz. Thought it was scheduled for 1500-1600, but evidently happened 1400-1500 UTC. Happened to tune in "early" and heard their fair signal with clean audio until 1500 s/off. DeutscheTelekom's latest transmission plan can be downloaded in PDF format.

WFLA in Florida were also audible in narrowband FM on 25870 kHz with their studio to remote site link.
Glenn Hauser recommends this website for a listing of stations using feeders, remote links etc around 26 MHz.

There's also this FCC database search page, where you can find all kinds of licencees. including "remote pickups" ie cue sound feeders.

Pirates - A new pirate "Flame FM" heard on 103.6 MHz late last night, and Dance-UK has shifted from 96.1 to 96.2 MHz.
