2018-07-11 OIRT RUS opening 

Morning OIRT conditions, which continued for some time after I left to work. Never reaching really CCIR range. Empty blind recording on 69.68 MHz – target Radio Pervyi Kanal, Ufa.

2018-07-12 OIRT RUS UKR + Balkan 108

Finally a good ES opening, reported 50 minutes 108 MHz to Balkan and 40 minutes to Italy. At 0720 UTC, when leaving to work, I was nearly going to set a blind recording on 69.38, (target GTRK Adygeya regional window), but conditions jumped to West right that moment, so I have chosen CCIR frequency (92.7 MHz) and antenna AZI approximately 190 degrees. TNX to Mr. JY for GRC alarm at 0720 UTC, which definitely saved my day!! It was kind of hard day in work to follow red carpet on MUF map – great catches made in Inner Finland today!

Week 27, 2018

Free week from SpE, only work…

2018-07-05 … until Thursday morning which brought an OIRT opening.  The highest note was 88.7 MHz for short time. Also tentative logs of Radio Ashkadar 66.68, Tatar Radyosu 67.7 and Mil. Volna 69.74 based on the music played. 66.62 MHz transmitted Orenburg regional news. Luckily I had to leave one hour later than normally, so there was enough time to tune and set up blind recording, this time on 68.36 MHz, where is listed a new-for-me GTRK Chelyabinsk.

Many GTRK transmitters are already shutted down on OIRT, and the rest must be living their “last days”. As we know, sporadic E skip is much more rare on CCIR, so OIRT GTRKs have pretty high position on my “bucket list”. Unfortunately so far I have had no luck with short skip conditions and regional windows matching in same time

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.

​Hello Jan-Mikael,

Good to hear from you and thanks for your e-mail.

This is not Radio 2 from the UAE, as we broadcast in English, but it is Emarat FM, which is also broadcast (in Arabic) from the same building here at Abu Dhabi Media.

I hope this serves as verification for you and I thank you again for getting in touch all the way from Finland!

All the best,

Week 24, 2018

Based on cycle theory, I expected this week to be pretty much silent which seemed to be true, so I decided to dedicate this week for work. Only an OIRT opening broke total silence on June 14, which I spent in work aswell. Probably it was not a big success from the point of view in Inner Finland, as it was mainly West-East QSO – based on Visual Log Book that day. Strongly expecting next opening to be around 24 June +- few days.

July 23, 2017: G IRL 106

After few days spent in work, with moderate conditions mostly on OIRT, it was time to have a better opening to British Isles which lasted more than one hour. After that there were stations on OIRT practically all day long, but conditions never really started again to that direction. At least Radio City Liverpool 96.7, Compass FM Grimsby 96.4 and BBC Radio Merseyside 95.8 were new-for-me stations. Irish South East Radio showed RDS on 95.6 MHz with news. The highest note was 105.3 Capital with network jingle.
