9830/ 9405 kHz RNW via TDF Msy

Two parts to the log, because Dream crashed 19 minutes into the broadcast.
The last fifteen minutes were not very good.

25 March results

I was only able to listen to the first few minutes and had a 19 dB SNR here. No log file as I'm doing something wrong with DRMLogger, although I'm closer to getting it to work than I was before.

DRM Logger note...

Alan - check to see that you enter the right date. DRM Logger runs on UTC, so any evening broadcast we log here in the western US must be set to the "next" day for it to work right.

Thumbs up 26 March log

Much better tonight, virtually perfect the entire broadcast. The big dip at 0250 is my computer's fault, not TDF's!

26 Mar log

At least I got the start OK, don't know why the logging didn't end at the set time. Nice flat graph, however.

Thumbs up 27 March log

A great log, and no, my computer did not create a problem tonight! Seems MSY had a bit of a problem getting going on time...

Hi Brendan and All,

Yes we had a problem in MSY: for some currently unknown reason, our transmitter ran in AM instead of DRM!?

Regards / 73.

Interesting...

I saw no sign of an analog AM transmission either. An AM signal would have been visible certainly, and during the hour I checked often to see if it was simply running late. Hmmmm....

29 Mar log

Much better results tonight - I'm still not sure why DRMLogger isn't stopping the log at the correct time. I had a blank graph last night - I just assumed it was something I was doing wrong with my attempts at unattended logging.

29 March log

Here's tonight's log. Rather disappointing I'd say. Great start, but then not very good for the rest of the hour.

An "A" index of 9 tonight, which is higher than most recent numbers that I've seen lately. I'll blame propagation for the lousy log.

Nil - Null - Zero

Nothing tonight. No DRM or analog on frequency. Propagation today was better than the previous few days, so I was hoping to get a really good log too!

31 Mar log

A bit of a late start - excellent for the first half hour, then things became rocky.
