Week 23

2018-06-04 – Iberia, UK, France
Working day #7 in a row. DXMaps showed much activity during the day in South-Western Europe, but nothing to North. High possibility of double hop came surprisingly true. While driving home, got an alert of ”E Sevilla”. Instead of post office, I decided to head to home as soon as possible. Luckily traffic officers weren’t around. It seems to be that these rare double hop conditions for Portugal just started a bit before I arrived. Unfortunately it turned soon to a single hop and toward the UK. After UK faded out, I found a silent moment for shopping, France-alert came meanwhile driving back into the yard. So not a bad timing in the end!

2018-05-31 Second half of May has been very silent. Based on Estruation cycle (appr. 3-4 weeks) next conditions might come in the small days of June. But surprisingly very last moments of May brought nightly condx moving South from Iceland (several RUV frequencies up to 99.8 MHz), later FRO tentatively on 94.3 MHz and soon after that reaching Orkney Islands and Scotland. 106.6 Two Lochs Radio seemed to relay Smooth Radio in the nighttime 🙁

Surprisingly a peaceful day in work, although nightly condx often bring an opening for next day. After dinner at home conditions started suddenly and strongly to the UK up to 108, unfortunately soon turning to CZE/D (mainly networks). All was gone as soon as they appeared. After a short break another paneuropean opening brought stations from Italy to Benelux, but these reflections were short lasting and very hard to identify.

QSL from a former jammer?

It is almost possible!

In Ukrainian capital Kyiv the FM transmitters are located in two different towers, roughly half of them are in TV tower, but another half is located in Щекавиця, Подільська радіовежа, which was formerly used for jamming of BBC, VOA and Radio Liberty. Now it is used for FM broadcasting.

Here is an audio sample from this tower, located on one of the numerous hills of Kiev!

Lux FM (103.1 MHz) was my first meteor catch ever and made me passionated to hunt more meteor reflections.

From the very same mast transmits also Jam FM 95.6 which verified Sporadic E reception after a short chat few years ago:

For more mast pictures from Kiev, you can visit this page:

Any of these towers wasn’t the well-known ”Kiev Woodpecker”. In this case the given name misleads a bit, because the origin of woodpeckers knocking was an OTH radar ”Duga” which is located near Chernobyl, nowadays not accessible area.

Thanks for infos ulx2 (Alexandr)

Sept 1, 2017: SpE from Balkan to France

A late-season-opening after a long silent period, lasting for 4 hours. This was the first time during my FMDX history when I have logged something in September, though there has been missed openings even in mid September.. Thanks to this pretty good opening, the total number of season’s logs reached 500. Full log will come here:

Couple of new-for-me receivers are already waiting for the autumn..
