I listened 2300 - 0000 UTC this evening (Thursday 7 Nov 2019) to the 6040 kHz DRM b/c from Galbeni. It's the first time in, I think, months that I've been able to decode anything from RRI. It...

Hi Terje,
Ankit organised it, though there was someone else who I dealt with at the end about the shipment.

I received, a few weeks ago, a package from Avion. It contained a new circuit board for my DR-1401. I am less than amateurish about doing electrical work, so I wrote back with my thanks, asking for...

To be honest, I don't know. I haven't been paying attention to 64- vs 16-QAM modes. Sometimes the Avion decodes at around 10 dB but other times it won't even at 16 dB.

I was hearing the WINB 13755 kHz DRM signal a little while ago, at 1445 UTC Friday 8 Mar 2019. I got nowhere near 100% audio and it's just as well since it is the fax-machine sounds being broadcast,...

Nigeria 15120 back again

I haven't heard V Nigeria's DRM in several months on 15120 kHz. I haven't seen any recent other reports of V Nigeria, but I don't know if they've actually been off air.

Monday 12/11/18. It's nearly 2315 UTC now and today there's been no sign here in downtown St. John's, Newfoundland, of the post-2230 AIR DMR signal.

I'll check again some more evenings.
