Sunday 6 April 2008

MW closedown - CBA Moncton, the 50 kW station serving New Brunswick on 1070 kHz, closes its MW channel at 0700 Atlantic time tomorrow morning ... 1000 UTC. There will be a special short duration "DX Test" at around 0100 Atlantic time, 0400 UTC which *should* be audible across the Atlantic.

Friday 4 April 2008

UK FM - Touch Radio began broadcasting at 7pm (1800 UTC) this evening serving Warwick, Leamington and Kenilworth. Noted their RDS TOUCH___ while driving up the M40/A43 towards Northampton. More details on the Touch Radio website.

Monday 31 March 2008

MW - RTE finally switched off their transmitter on 567 kHz (and the relay on 729 kHz).

aerials - relocated the feeders at home, and moved the SW beaming EWE to the back garden which means it's slightly further anti-clockwise than previously. It picks up the Gurkha station from Sandhurst on 1134 kHz very nicely, whereas the NW and NNW aerials yield L&D Hospital Radio.

Sunday 30 March 2008

MW - TWR Benin have a slightly revised programme schedule for their new transmitter in Benin on 1566 kHz. In the mornings they're on 0200-0435 UTC, and in the evening 1600-2030 (or 2045).

MW - VRT closed most of their Flemish language outlets on mediumwave today. So 540 and 1512 are now silent. 927 kHz continues to broadcast the Radio 1 service. 1188 kHz was supposed to close down too, but appears to still be on the air.

Saturday 29 March 2008

MW - R Littoral on 1593 kHz broadcast overnight in standard AM modulation despite announcing DRM with a mixture of music (French pop and Breton folk) with English and French IDs.

Friday 15 February 2008

MW - Vatican Radio on 1530 kHz noted much earlier than their normally scheduled 0330 start with Spanish at 0100, then French at 0230. Not shown on their website schedule. As I was recording that channel overnight, trying to hear Celtic Music Radio, it didn't help.

Red Sands Radio - is testing on 1278 kHz prior to their RSL this month. Apparently good reception in Essex, but checking here at 2200 UTC the only English station was Pulse Classic Gold from Bradford. You can listen too on the Red Sands website.

EWE vs ALA 1530 - did a quick comparison of the two aerials this morning. 1134 kHz on the loop had L&D Radio (north) dominant with Gurkha Radio in the background (southwest). However on the SW beaming EWE aerial, Gurkha Radio was loud and clear.

With BBC R Shropshire having opened two new FM transmitters recently, the decision was made to switch 1584 kHz to carry BBC Hereford & Worcester so that listeners in North Herefordshire would enjoy better reception. It was several years ago that the Hereford AM transmitter on 819 kHz was closed. A possible date for the changeover is March 31, with a "retune" loop being broadcast for 24 hours prior to the switch.

Propagation - Brief E's mid-morning to Tunisia. Then early afternoon weak E's to Spain ... and again the English station on 87.8 MHz for about 15 minutes. Then a gap until a few minutes of E's to Portugal. Another gap, and a good opening to Greece, then Italy, then Tunisia.

Propagation - Just one burst today from Sweden, either Sporadic E or a good long meteor ping.

Propagation - Very early Sporadic E opening to Scandinavia. In fact, there was Sporadic E all night it seems. I've just listened back to the overnight recording. More details on this 88MHz page. Band 1 tv was open much of the day to Sweden, Finland and Norway, but it didn't make it up to Band 2 FM.

Propagation - Again an early Sporadic E opening to Italy around 0700-0745. From 1320-1430 it briefly touched Spain and concentrated on Portugal shortening in distance. Then at 1600 it opened again to Spain, until abruptly switching to Italy at 1650 and all gone by 1800. The Arab on 87.7 was tantalising, but no real idea where it was from - best beaming SSE.

Propagation - Early Sporadic E opening to Italy around 0735-0750. Then, Sporadic E opening to Italy began around 1235 UTC, then at 1320 it went up to 108 MHz with a vast amount of "mush" across the whole of FM - so much so that identifying stations was almost impossible. The noise floor was about 30 or 40 dB on the Sony's signal meter. This lasted until about 1430, when conditions settled down again and stations became clearer. From 1730 we started getting a mixture of "normal" length skip, plus some very short skip to Germany and Austria. The band went dead around 1850, until it opened again to Greece and then Italy at 1920 until 1955.

Propagation - Good Sporadic E to Eastern Europe from 1415 to 1915 and again to Italy 2000 to 2100. What was strange today was that it was best to have the beam pointing just south of East, even when Poland was coming in. Beaming directly to Poland tended to lose signal. Also the propagation kept returning to the same Polish stations before darting elsewhere again.

Longwave - New Isle of Man longwave station to broadcast from Radio Caroline's old offshore location.

STATION GETS RADIO CAROLINE'S OLD SPOT

GOVERNMENT has given the green light for a long wave radio transmitter to be stationed
five miles off the coast of Ramsey in the same spot used by Radio Caroline in the 1960s.

Isle of Man International Broadcasting has received approval in principle from the 
territorial sea committee to position a platform with the transmitter and antenna at the site.

It will mean the creation of between 40 and 50 jobs in the north of the Island.

The firm had originally wanted to build a mast at Ayre but this was opposed by residents,
Bride Commissioners and Ayre MHK Edgar Quine.

The Council of Ministers threw out the plans in January this year following a public inquiry.

IoMIB founder Paul Rusling revealed news of the off-shore site at the firm's annual meeting
last night. He said: 'The station is expected to launch towards the end of 2002 and we are
looking at employing between 40 and 50 staff, both full-time and part-time.'

The cost of the unmanned platform and equipment will be around the £5.25 million mark,
while promoting the station and working capital mean it's a £12 million project, the
funds for which Mr Rusling says will be fully raised early in the new year.

The station's studio and offices will be situated in Ramsey.

Mr Rusling added: 'The launch will bring greater diversification to the Island's economy,
helping the further development of the north of the Island by bringing a significant number
of all year round jobs to Ramsey while generating substantial revenue for the Treasury.'

Marketing director Geoff Holliman said: 'The project has a lot to offer the Island,
particularly post foot-and-mouth and September 11.

'More than ever the Isle of Man needs a powerful voice and our radio station, reaching into
millions of homes, will sharpen the Island s international focus.'

Then a gap until the band opened up to Italy, San Marino and the Balkans up to 108 MHz for two and a half hours.

Also a lot of the time, there was so much noise across the band, that nothing was RDS-ing apart from the local London stations.

UK stations - Choice FM in London appear to have abandoned the generically linked PI code idea. Their 96.9 MHz transmitter in South London is now radiating PI:C8B2 and PS: Choice-S, and their North London transmitter PI:C898 and PS: Choice-N.

Signal One have similarly changed PI code on their Pye Green transmitter on 96.1 ... now PI:CB98. (Thanks, Neil)

Anyone within range of Oban FM to check if they are actually radiating RDS?

Propagation - Large amount of Sporadic E again today. I was able to tune around from 2000-2130 UTC, but it was interesting to find out eventually what the PI:1008 station is on 88.0, and to see R Alma Mater coming in yet again.

Propagation - Almost 6 hours of Sporadic E today. Possibly Melilla and Canary Islands, though with so many Spanish stations on channel, it's not 100%. Also Space 101.7 in Southall wiped out 99-104 MHz later on with broadband noise. Even locals like Jazz FM were unlistenable and un-RDS-able. The SER station on 104.3 had curious PI:0239, but I can't find a SER station on that channel.

Propagation - Morning opening to Spain and Portugal, but I was at work. Nothing in the early afternoon, but around 1600 UTC the band opened up to Italy below 94 MHz. At 1635 propagation then moved to the Baltic Republics (especially Latvia) right up to 108 MHz, until conditions died away around 1855 UTC.

Propagation - Wow ... biggest and longest Sporadic E opening of the year so far. Propagation did move around quite a lot though, and often stations were only audible for 2 or 3 minutes. The period 1500-1530 in particular gave an incredible number of signals right across the band, but the most noticeable effect was that I got 40 or 50 dB of "noise" everywhere and very few clear signals. Kind of similar to the mush noted during the Leonid meteor shower of 1999, but at higher level.

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.

WFLA in Florida were also audible in narrowband FM on 25870 kHz with their studio to remote site link.

Propagation - Day started off quietly with just a morning opening to Tunisia. But from the middle of the afternoon for 6 hours the band was wide open. Predominantly Italy and Spain, but also Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco ... and yet the same area of Greece. The strange thing was that the band was open to everywhere at the same time, all you had to do was turn (or switch) aerials.

I've uploaded two RealAudio clips of the un-id's to try and find out what they are. Have a listen and write me with your opinions.

Propagation - No E's noted at all today. But a tropo began around 2000 to France and Belgium. First tropo since I hooked up the vertical dipole to the dx tuner. Definitely needed for R Classique 101.1 and R Notre Dame 101.4 MHz, as these were inaudible on the horizontal 8 ele.

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.

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!

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 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

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.

December 3, 1999

87.7 UNID - Updated the Results So Far page. I've emailed various stations asking them if it was them ... remote hope, but you never know.

RDS - Updated the UK Commercial station page. OakFM appear to have dropped the obvious "oakfm.co.uk" in favour of a slogan based website.

Propagation - The Asian RSL in Kent is now off-air - as per published lists, and nothing heard from it today. So 87.7 here is really clear of licenced UK stations, pity about the pirates! Lots of pings noted, especially 0500-0800 to Strasbourg (presumably).

Websites - Added a link to Lantern Radio's website on my UK RDS page. Thanks Tim.

November 19-21, 1999

Propagation - Nothing strong enough to be logged. There was a series of meteor pings on the 19th 0500-0730 giving Germany and others (Poland?), but none strong enough to RDS.

Website - I've added a search capability to this website. Give it a try from the main page. It'll become more useful when (if) I start breaking up this dxlatest page into smaller chunks, perhaps creating discrete logs pages etc. Anyway give it a try if you've got time.

November 18, 1999

Propagation - Noted an increasing number of pings from around 0035. But all were very short ... just fractions of a second. The frequency of pings increased steadily and appeared to peak around 0210-0215. But even then nearly all pings were very short. A few lasted for up to 30 seconds or longer, but all gave really weak signals. Nothing identified out of the weak background of stations ... just un-id's from Germany on 87.8, Italy on 87.7, and test tone on 87.6 MHz. Maybe the debris this year was much finer dust and particles, which burnt up at too high an altitude to have any radio (or visual) effects.

November 16, 1999

Propagation - Again lots of small pings overnight. Pretty sure the Indian station is the RSL.

Lots more pings this evening, again most very brief. Clear sky and cold tonight too.

November 15, 1999

Propagation - Lots of meteor pings noted last night. Only 3 were strong enough to RDS ...

But listening to the audio recording there were many pings of France Culture that didn't RDS. There were many too that had blank carrier in the early hours, and later had something like Arabic or similar language - OM talk and drums. These seemed to be from a non-RDS station since some pings were definitely strong enough.

The new filters are a definite improvement.

Update - the ?Arabic station has been "pinging" all day. Sounds now like an Indian language, perhaps the Khalsa Radio RSL in Gravesend coming in via jet scatter.

Propagation - 87.6 MHz ... Belgium fading in and out during the night and day, best around 0300-0600. Some meteor pings, but all too short. One at 0222 had tone, others just snatches of music, most in the 0115-0230 period. Some minor pings this evening. Late evening ping to Italy (RAI), and Czech Rep (Impuls).

Propagation - Belgium fading in and out all night and most of the day, though too weak to RDS. Several meteor pings noted overnight, but most too short to be useful. Interesting ones were this one, sounding Arabic at 0304 UTC, this un-id'd one at 0746 sounding Czech, and this one RDS-ing as R Impuls at 1028.

October 16, 1999

Propagation - No meteor last night, 87.6 was occupied by Rinse FM (London pirate) from 0100 onwards. But they did get swamped by a Sporadic E opening !!! in the late morning.

Propagation - Didn't get home from work til almost midnight (local time), and thus just missed the meteor ping of the day.

22.20  87.6  I  RAI-1, Monte Cavo (RM)   strong ping               5201 RAI_MF1_       MH

Propagation - No meteor pings last night were strong enough for RDS, but one at 0125 gave a tiny bit of audio.

I've also converted the RTBF and HR3 AIFF files of yesterday into RealPlayer files ... try these and see if they work ... RTBF-RealPlayer ... HR3-RealPlayer.

October 14, 1999

Propagation - No meteor pings noted this morning, due to tropo signals. RTBF and HR3 were fighting for dominance all night. Belgium came in first with its usual just above the noise signal, but Germany then dominated 0530-0730 with long slow fades.

Belgium then made another bid for supremacy 1200-1400, with even its PS Name showing on the Sony.

I'm going to see about making RealAudio files as an alternative to AIFF due to filesizes. Any other suggestions?

Cornwall report - Not much to be heard in Cornwall on FM even these days. National and local radio is there but only from a few sites. Tried various sites in West Cornwall such as Penzance Sea front, Newlyn, Sancreed Beacon, Badgers Cross above Marazion. In fact the sea level locations were best in the mid-evening.

Then played cricket all afternoon 1200-2000, came home and found a small opening to Italy.

Then ... WOW ... more Italy and Tunisia up til 2130 UTC. E's this late !!

June 28, 1999

Propagation - Nothing to report today.

June 27, 1999

Propagation - Nothing noted. 87.6 is splattered by both R Wimbledon and a pirate. Also a pirate on 87.9 in addition to the satelite tuner spurious emission from Southall on 87.85 ... in fact a quick scan produced 13 other pirates in the 100-108 MHz range alone, obviously there are yet more between 88-100 MHz. Weekends are definately not good times for dx-ing from here.

Non-dx - Following London pirates noted today with RDS

WDXC QSL - I've just updated the online WDXC QSL Columns ... now up to Feb 1999.

RSL? - Punjabi FM were testing earlier on 87.7 MHz, over-riding Insanity FM who are licenced there. If they are an RSL, they're very amateurish at present.

Propagation - Conditions very flat recently. Some slight enhancement this evening for the usual French stations, 105.2 Info, 104.7 Inter, though not 94.7 Frequence Nord.

March 1, 1999

RSL - Insanity FM are back on 87.7 ... one of the better RSL stations around these parts.

February 27, 1999

Logbook - I've just finished compiling the 1998 compilation FM logbook. It's a 42 page PDF document made up from the 1998 editions of Skywaves magazine, the magazine of the British FM & TV Circle.

February 8, 1999

FM - FLR has launched on 107.3 and is currently on a clear channel as received here. Luckily not too strong ... 16dB on the Sony ... so DX has a chance on 107.2 and 107.4 given continuation of non-pirate activity.

Sporadic E - Finnish DXers report Sporadic E today 0800+ on Band 1 and later up to 107 MHz from France, UK and Germany. Nothing noted here.

below 91 MHz. At 1010 Germany also fading on TV channel E4. From around 1130 some FM
stations from Germany, Holland, France etc. fading on the FM band all the way up to 107 MHz.
Germany still on TV channel E2. Nothing on TV or FM after 1230. TV Es Conditions again
in the evening around 1635 with Belgium on channel E3 and Holland on channel E4. Denmark
also strong on TV channel E3 around 1650. E's FM Conditions around 1715 for 10 minutes with
stations from Holland. Nothing on TV after 1730 but around 1745 England on FM with around
5 BBC R2 and BBC R3 transmitters under 94 MHz.

RDS - Various updates to the Commercial RDS listing thanks to James Cridland.

FLR FM - RDS is now turned on ... FLR107.3 ... but very poor here today due to pirate QRM. Possible PI code is C594.

Continuing reports of auroral propagation from Finland, but I can't turn the aerial round to North even if it extended down here.

RSL - Heard Justice FM on 87.7 from Acton at 0715. This RSL is being run by Acton Police it appears. However, it's barely audible due to interference from pirates on 87.5 and 87.8.

RSL - Also heard something like Heartside Hospital Radio on 107.2 at 1230, though this might be a pirate relay since BBC R2 was here earlier this week. Later the RSL Fundamental FM was heard on 107.2 from Battersea.

Link - This link was sent to me by Dale Bickel and is to provide coverage information for VHF transmitters.

RDS - List of BBC RDS stations which may need some changing ... if you tell me about errors. This complements the UK commercial station RDS list.

August 12, 1998

Propagation - No E's and the tropo has almost died away. Much windier today as a weather front heads this way from the NW. 94.7 and 92.3 are the only listenable "dx" signals.

The Perseids peaked tonight at 2300 UTC, but nothing heard at all.

August 11, 1998

Propagation - Weak Germany around 0100, better at 0700 until fade out around 0900. Nothing to note afterwards.

This evening some return of tropo but only to Lille etc and weak Belgium by 2230.

Much better reception has been reported by John Faulkner in Nottinghamshire who is nearer the Northern edge of this particular high pressure system. London seems not to be favoured at this time. The high temperatures (31C again today) are giving good nighttime enhancement presumably due to temperature inversions over sea paths.

But it does mean that I'm now stuck with all the London pirates blocking a lot of channels. No fun I can tell you. Worst (for dx-ing) is the Asian pirate on 87.85 variable which splatters from 87.6 up to 88.1 MHz.
