Ke 25.03.2020 Paljon huonompi (heikompi) brittiaamuyö kuin vaikkapa eilen, eikä eilinenkään tulitusta täällä ollut. Walesin slingasta 882:lla ei merkkiään. Iberiaan vetäisi nyt mutta ei ole breikkejä. Mm. 810 SER Radio Madrid ja 882 COPE olisi paljon kivempi juttu breikin aikana. Smoothin riivaamalla taajuudella 1359 kHz jälleen Solent ja yllätys-ID Greatest Hits Radio across Coventry and mikälieshire.

Week 26, 2018

Full week in work, except Saturday.

2018-06-25 RUS, ISL, FRO, G, BeNe, F. Monday was a silent day, so not at all Estressful to be in work on a dayafter 😉 Surprisingly second half of Iran vs. Portugal was interrupted by a Komi alert. But this time Vorkuta was alerted also on 88.0 MHz. CCIR reception is not that ordinary, not even from Komi, so it was a sign of something better… The band was weakly open up to 108 MHz, but in this direction are very few stations. Some of the Usinsk transmitters were heard tentatively. As often with Komi, also this time came a mirror reflection to Iceland, which went down to Faroe Islands, Orkney and Scotland. Surprisingly this time it reached even England, the Netherlands, Belgium and finally France!

2018-06-27 BUL – ROU – RUS – UKR – BLR – MDA – BIH – I – HRV – HNG – RUS – G – F. The first SpE alert came as early as 0431 UTC, so I decided to have a free day instead of going to work today. Usually early morning ES is promising for the rest of the day. One of the best OIRT (and only OIRT) openings ever was followed by HRV/I up to 108 MHz and a peak to Budapest. In the evening OIRT RUS and late night UK/F, highest noted on 95.8 MHz.

Aito Kajaus Plus started in Jyväskylä on June 27, 2018 around 07 UTC. A day before 91.8 MHz Pihtipudas appeared on the band.

19 June 2017: evening opening from TUR to Wales

Again a relatively good opening, best moments were for Czechia and Hungary, when some stations beated local transmitters! So far this season has been extremely good, till today total number of my logs is 377. Compared to full seasons 2016 (417) and 2014 (566) it can be that this will be the best ever, at least if July won’t be totally silent. 2013 (364) and 2015 (324) are not totally comparable, because I was off in August. Visual log here.

8 June 2017: BIH, CZE, POL, D, AUT, later Benelux, G, F with DNK!

From the bed to the band. Morning opening was already going on at 0550 UTC on lower band, bringing Bosnian, Czechia, Poland, Germany and Austria. Mostly basic stations. I had to leave QTH for 40 minutes, between 0640-0720 UTC, and when driving, I enjoyed the selection of songs CRo 1 on 89.7, including “I wasn’t expecting it now”. Fits perfectly to the feeling 🙂 The band closed a bit after I came back, afterwards it was annoying to notice an arab on blind recording which I roughly changed to the other frequency, because the signal was “too weak”.. Next time then!

An hour later the strongest BBCs appeared and soon band was open to BeNeLux. Next 30 minutes of DNK MUF 108 were definitely the best half an hour of my DX history! It is pretty rare to have a widely open band for such a short distance (1100-1200 km!)

Guys in Utö pedition described today as “second best day ever in Utö” which is not hard to believe!

6 June 2017: small F opening, new MS country

Late night conditions indicate usually a morning start. DX Sherlock looked fine in the morning, and soon French stations faded in. The highest noted frequency was 94.5 MHz. Not long lasting opening, all gone before I even left to work around 0730 UTC. Blind recording (95.7 MHz) during work day was practically empty, except multiple meteors. In one of them bright id as “Radio Een” brought new heard MS country BEL! In the evening some Komi on OIRT. Identified stations visually: http://www.fmlist.org/fm_logmap.php?datum=2017-06-06&omid=1183

Today’s highlights (once again)

5 June 2017: from BEL to BUL

For 2 hours short-lasting but strong reflections from West to East Europe, very difficult to follow and MUF was moving 80-100-80-100-80 continuously. Band was silent for 5 minutes, and open for another 5 minutes, then same again.. Still one new-for-me station Ritmo 80 from Bari on 87.8. Bari needs a bit overlong skip (2453 km) which happens every now and then during weak Balkan openings. Maybe Adriatic sea and tropospheric ducting helps a bit!?

24 May 2017: OIRT Russia and Benelux, F and D

First WhatsApp alert came already around 9.00 local time from TV Voice on 65.75 MHz, but conditions didn’t start yet. After full 7 hours work day next alert came during my way home, and made me push gas pedal a bit deeper. It took some time to open the rx, because a (wanted) guest arrived to dacha just a bit after me, bringing a bike I bought.

 

Finally to the balcony, a fading OIRT opening offered many GTRK stations during the regional window 1510-1559 UTC, with shorter skip to Belarus. After 16 UTC another opening started suddenly bringing stations from Benelux and nearby, unfortunately it was very short.. Today’s personal log can be found here. 48 logs so far are an average start for this season!

Today’s highlights:

Radio Latina 101.2 MHz (LUX) broadcasting in Portuguese(!)
A new-for-me GTRK station “Chuvash Radio”

ES July 31 and August 1-5

After a flop July ES seems to be activating little by little. On July 31, morning conditions offered some UKR and MDA on OIRT. Highest log was Radio Shanson with rolling RDS on 88.8 MHz. Next day continued with OIRT conditions to Komi. Conditions were good, also Radio Rossii transmitters listed as 100 W and 400 W were audible, but unfortunately there is nothing much to hear from Komi under 100 MHz. All signals disappeared around 0900 UTC, so I couldn’t confirm, if GTRK Komi-Gor has a regional bulletin from 0910 to 1000 UTC.. maybe next time!

On August 2, surprisingly good evening opening to Benelux and France up to 108 MHz for one hour, with some double hop to Spain! (NB: Could have been prelonged Tropo over Bay of Biskaya too!). Spain will be difficult to identify, but guys on South-Western coast had better condx towards Iberian peninsula! Only some of the Spanish signals reached inner Finland. From France mostly networks as France Inter, Fun Radio, MFM, Nostalgie and NRJ. From Belgium Radio Contact and a new-for-me network Joe FM.

During inactive July many of us have found new hobbies: sailing, fishing, stamp collecting or picking up berries and mushrooms (it’s the best season now for them!). In this picture you can see some of 20-30 porcinos (penny buns) under my old abandoned Alfa Romeo, which seems to be optimal athmosphere for such a mushroom (enough humid and probably soon rusty!)

July 4th brought no conditions at all, but MUF was 108 literally next day, just after midnight on the South Coast. Unfortunately the best skip didn’t reach inner Finland, but some low band stations were audible for short time (i.e tentatively RAI 87.8).

July 5th, the summer meeting day started with 30 minutes OIRT conditions in the morning to UKR/BLR. A new-for-me station Svitle Radio Emmanuel 67.82 ided. Last time night conditions trigged super day June 8, this time we were expecting a little bit more than this, but even MUF 74 is good compared to MUF24.
