If I am duplicating an existing thread, please forgive me.

I saw a DRM waveform while I was getting ready to listen to TDP via Sackville and got this. The SNR was almost good enough for audio.
I couldn't find it on the DRM schedule I have bookmarked. Can anyone give me any information on this broadcast? I can't believe I was getting reception from Germany on 31 meters 3 1/2 hours before my local sunset.:confused:

I don't see it on the official DRM list, EIBI nor ADDX, but I'm getting Echo des Tages DRM in German on 9530. S9+40. Near perfect decode, but low quality AAC+ Mono 14.56 kbps. Is this Sackville?

Your "WAZ Nachrichten" broadcast is related to this newspaper: http://www.derwesten.de/

I can see this station right now, Journaline "WAZ Nachrichten". See http://www.dxaktuell.de/waz.png http://www.dxaktuell.de/wazjournaline.png

Edit: Station off at exactly 2305 UTC

An unattended log. Unfortunately, my automatic screen shot routine failed, so I did not get any labels or other data. :mad:

Now it's called "Echo des Tages" with 14 kbps audio.
I bet it changes into Journaline again at 22.30 UTC...
(Start time was short after 22.00)

2205: Echo des Tages (audio)
2235: WAZ Nachrichten (Journaline)
2305: switch off

Language: German, Country: Germany
Exciting... :D

A short log. The signal was very weak, and "das Echo des Tages" could not be heard. The transmission started shortly after 22 UTC.

Very weak herewwith the 19m Deltaloop, too. No decoding possible.

Does anybody know the source of this transmission today?

I got an audio-file of the Echo-transmission. The program content is from "NDR Info", which is the talk and news station of my regional broadcaster NDR, www.ndrinfo.de.

Edit: This transmission originates from Nauen, Germany.
Edit 2: Here's tonight's log of the Echo.

Hi all,

I received this transmission tonight. The signal was fairly good but only fragments of decoded audio (German speaking voices). After 22:35 the audio stopped and replaced by Journaline which received perfectly. There were two different labels for the 1st and 2nd half of the transmission and two BRs too. Take a look at the attached images.

So it is Nauen. That is why the reception here is problematic; Nauen always was. I got surprisingly much decoded audio, more than expected. The "Echo des Tages" was just that: A summary of the news from NDR Info. Between 2219 and 2221 I noticed many interruptions in the DRM modulation. At 2221 UTC there was a time check "18:05". The Channel Impulse Response was high, about 4 to 6 ms, which seems to be bad for the decoding (?).

From approx. 2235 the label changed to WAZ Nachrichten, Journaline. I could retrieve all contents without problems.

Hi all,

No results tonight. Very weak signal + QRM. SNR 5 - 7 dB.

Excellent reception of both the audio and data segments today. I wonder what the transmission power and antenna beam heading are?

drmdab 09-08-2009 10:08

I don't know anything about the beam direction, but they're using 200 kW currently.

Hi all,

I sent an e-mail to WAZ asking for details of the transmission and got the exciting answer on the 6th of August:

Sehr geehrter Herr Isberg,
herzlichen Dank für Ihre E-Mail.
Wir haben uns erlaubt, Ihre Anfrage an die zuständige Fachabteilung

Mit herzlichen Grüßen
Ihr WAZ-Leserservice

... let us hope that the "Fachabteilung" knows more...
