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.

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.

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.

London Pirates - Also noted the following pirates with RDS ... 88.4 _ICE_FM_ ... 92.5 TASTE_FM ... 100.3 RINSE_FM ... 103.8 N-POWER_ ...

Note that there are two RINSE_FM's, 87.6 is in West London (perhaps Langley), 100.3 is in SE London.

January 20-22, 2000

Propagation - Nothing noted dx-wise on 107.1 MHz. The bottom end is still swamped by RINSE_FM on 87.6 MHz.

WRTH - WRTH Publications have made available a listing omitted from the WRTH 2000 book, namely that of the National Shortwave Services ... ie domestic SW stations. As their PDF file is huge and contains page breaks mid-line, I have used their data and produced my own documents. One or other of them should meet your needs. There's a DOC, an XLS, a PDF, a HTML and a TXT file all linked from here.

Propagation - But ... it couldn't last. Rinse FM back on 87.6 MHz. So back to 107.1 tonight.

Propagation - Tried 87.9 again, but nothing doing.

January 12, 2000

Propagation - Rinse FM obviously noticed the RSL had gone off-air, and moved from 87.5 to 87.6 MHz changing their PI code appropriately.

January 8, 2000

Propagation - Monitored 99.5 all day, but just Radio 1 made it through in the early morning.

Propagation - Weak tropo to Belgium. Many channels still blocked by pirates.

January 3-6, 2000

Propagation - Nothing worthy of noting.

UK RDS list - Signal Cheshire becomes Imagine, and KFM becomes Mercury, plus other changes. RDS list updated. Thanks to Trevor and Jeff.

Joerg's unid - One contribution so far ... come on you polyglots!! Have a listen.

January 1, 2000

Propagation - Nothing noted on FM ... but did try for SAQ on 17.2 kHz 1200-1330. Think I got some CW at 1235-1240 and again 1305-1319. But very weak and almost buried in local tv buzz etc.

Y2k - Everything fine here (as expected), though I have seen two incoming emails apparently dated as Year 100.
