    Notice it sandwiched between the two Spanish stations ?

    I can get it quite well from mid/late afternoon. Peaks quite strong at times. Slovenia does cause some problems later in the evening.

    Probably when the Spanish stations are not so much of a problem.

    I don't remember so many strong Spanish stations on MW as i have this year ?

    I think they may have put on a couple of more transmitters.
    I think I once counted about least 8, all carrying the same program.

    And they say MW is dead eah ?

    Excellent thanks for the update, is that at 1 Kw on 648 Khz ?

    Yes 1kw -- like another poster I start to receive it after 3pm and then all evening with fading -- sometimes I check at 7am and a good interference free signal then .
    Have a look at this little video of mine -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXvCKh8PnWM
    No external antenna

    That's a pretty good signal for 1 Kw ! I must try to check out for it during the day.


  • Registered Users Posts: 597 ✭✭✭Oscarziggy


    One more done in November at 6:30pm -- note the signal strength then fading --- before the house phone rang !

    I doubt there has been any recent increase of power of Spanish stations on MW.
    Its just that they are more noticeable now with the closure of high power MW transmitters that used to be easily received at night here from other countries (apart from the UK) in recent years.
    MW now extinct in Germany, only one relatively low power MW station in France (1593kHz) , Luxembourg gone, the Netherlands has now only one station (religious on 1008) with any significant power, etc etc

    Bear in mind the large land mass of Spain, which is hardly all covered by FM , one of the reasons MW is still very much in use there

    Caroline is going to start regular programmes on 648, Friday 22 December 2017, if I am reading this right.

    Great morning of presenting -- and a mention !!
    Now we need a transmitter here in the West -- I'm sure 252 could be re-tuned to a MW frequency when it becomes surplus to requirements .

    Happy Christmas all
    Regards


  • Posts: 21,179 ✭✭✭✭ [Deleted User]


    It would be good to see 252 reused but the modern RTE bosses are hell bent on ridding us of such diabolical ancient technology that I bet they will never allow it to be used again.

    They also have the 567 transmitter sitting idle.

    Enjoy the week end everyone --- I wonder if the BBC stations sharing 1368khz and transmitting only "how to listen to us " loops will be closed down ?
    I won't hold my breath on that one .
    Regards

    Edit: LIVE from the Ross Revenge NOW on Caroline flashback


  • Registered Users Posts: 597 ✭✭✭Oscarziggy


    Radio Caroline North and Manx Radio return 17th /18th February on 1368khz .
    This should be interesting as the BBC transmitters that shared 1368khz have closed ---
    Have a great week end all .
