Kuukausi: heinäkuu 2015
July 7th was a good day for FMDXers, all day long. I was not at home, but here are some loggings by Janne in Jyväskylä (30 km SE from me). Jim from Bromarv (South-West Finland) reports:
0930 utc aloitettiin puolen tunnin Ranskakelillä, mukana myös Galician kulma. 1120-1200 utc oli vuorossa lisää Ranskaa, muf 108. Ranska rysähti kunnon menoon taas 1410-1450 utc, muf koko ajan 108. 1715-1735 tykitti vuorostaan Venäjän Balakovo muffin 108:aan. Ja lopuksi 1900 utc vielä vartti Romaniaa ja Bulgariaa, muffi noin 97 megaa.
I was not at home 0839-1207 UTC, so I missed the ROU/MDA/TUR opening. We were visiting the old church of Petäjävesi that belongs to the UNESCO world heritage list. This year is the 250th anniversary.
On the way we stopped on Radio and Telephone Museum which is always an interesting pit stop. Petäjävesi is located 37 km from Uurainen.
July 9th we visited Aviation Museum in Tikkakoski (15 km from here).
It has also a small exhibition of military receivers and transmitters.
July 3 began with British Isles and Benelux under 100 MHz turning later to France. While live listening, I identified at least Belgisher Rundfunk on 88.5, RFI Paris on 89.0, BBC Radio Oxford 95.2 and Dutch Radio 10 on 93.0. VRT Radio 1 showed RDS on 95.7. Later on the same frequency BBC Radio Cambridgeshire was possibly heard with Cambridge related topics. Conditions were nevertheless weak, not much commercial stations audible. Soon it get even weaker: BBC 2, 3 and 4 networks came under 95 MHz so I left recording on 87.8 (RSL frequency) and began painting walls. Only result was tentative RTÉ 1.
Next morning some low band Italian, but no ID’s. Presumed RAI 87.8 and Radio Maria 88.7 based on programme style. Because also this opening was a flop, I left home before noon, heading to town of Virrat, to participate Scandinavian Weekend Radio’s 15th anniversary. This station broadcasts regularly on 25 and 48 mb on short waves and nowadays also on 1602 AM and 94.9 FM.
