Just ten minutes before 2230 sign-off, I am receiving the 7550kHz DRM with about 50% decoding. The GOS-IV has good audio but the RAAGAM channel (so-labelled now) only has a test tone for...

On Weds evening, 8/8/18, the DRM signal from AIR is getting through here in downtown St John's, Newfoundland, though somewhat more weakly than two days ago. My Avion (with an indoor loop antenna) is...

In downtown St. John's, Newfoundland, on Monday evening 7:15 local time (2145 UTC), 6 August 2018, I'm getting a good signal from AIR on 7550 kHz.

Both channels are good but the audio volume on...

Further to what I just posted, after 1900 I turned on my little-used Avion DR1401 set, attached to the inside loop antenna (Sony AN-LP1). It is decoding better than the MR27024 with an outdoor...

Today, 1 Aug 2018, just before 1900 UTC, the V Nigeria DRM signal is varying between 3 dB and 10 dB MER -- mostly too low for audio decode, though on some of the signal peaks (for example, at 1858) I...

Thanks for the numbers.

I shall discontinue my mono-wanting curses at stations I cannot decode but whose ParaStereo signals are just below the threshold. :)

Righto. So the "cost" of making a mono signal stereo is actually quite small -- do I have that right?

Para Stereo?

One of the holes in my technical understanding of DRM is "Para Stereo."

As I type this, I am tuned to Kuwait's DRM signal (15540 kHz, Sunday 29/7/18 at 1915UTC). The signal is too low for audio...

By the way, the V Nigeria DRM was strong enough to change my MorphyRichards's clock . . . to the wrong time!

I've noticed this for several years -- Nigeria's DRM will (unlike several other...

Thursday 26/7/18 afternoon (1915 UTC), I am hearing a fairly strong audio of DRM-whoosh on 15120 kHz. Strange sound, though, as if some audio is mixing into it. On my MR27024 the label ("Voice of...

It is Monday 9 July at 1115 UTC (8:45 am local time). Yesterday afternoon, our local electricity unaccountably died for an hour. That reset my MorphyRichards 27024's clock back to its defaults, some...

TP, thanks for those suggestions. Forty-odd years ago, I used to use a (then-old!) Kay Spectrograph for analysing short speech segments. It was very limited but very elegant in its output, on little...

It is just coming up to 1430 Friday (15/6/18) now and I've been able to sit by the radio most of the past three hours, catching little snippets of speech from the WINB DRM on 15670 kHz. None of the...

Friday morning, 15/6/18, in downtown St. John's, Newfoundland. I finally heard some audio from WINB DRM! I had turned on both my MorphyRichards 27024 (with an 8m wire outside) and my Avion DR1401...

Good point about RFI producing the RFI.

Also about this being a good spot for a web SDR. Ahh, if I were a rich man. . .

Thanks for the map of signal strength. It seems an odd distribution with...

It's just before 1700 UTC right now and I thought to tune the AM radio (Grundig Satellit 750) to 15670 kHz to see if there is anything there. There is an audio tone, somewhere in the 300-400 HZ...

I was lucky enough to sit down by the radio just a couple of minutes after 1600 UTC and check for WINB's DRM test on 15670 kHz.

I got a few minutes of its label before the signal disappeared. It was...

No sign of it here in St John's again today, Tuesday 22 May 2018 (checking between 1200 and now, 1325 UTC). There are *some* USA 19mb signals coming in here (for example Nashville on 15825 kHz).

I am listening now (1835 UTC, Monday 21/5/18) to Kuwait's "DRM Service A" on 15540 kHz with about 95% decoding. MER is mostly between 11 and 18 dB, with dips down to 6 and 8 dB. English news right...

Monday 21 May 2018, 1215 UTC. I've been tuned to WINB's 15670 fq for the past hour but I'm seeing nothing. But the entire 19mb has been poor with a few small breaks from the East, rather than from...

It's 1220 UTC right now, Weds 18 April, and I've been tuned to 11600 kHz since the 1200 hour. But there is no sign whatever of a signal getting through to here.
