1593 kHz WDR from Langenberg

Hi all,
DRM tests from WDR station Langenberg on 1593 kHz. This frequency was in use for WDR till the end of 1993, later Radio Free Europe from Holzkirchen, now back in Langenberg.
See screenshot.
73, Klaus

Just in time for the FIFA world cup, WDR started their DRM transmissions from Langenberg today.
Currently playing classical music, high bitrate, good audio quality.
Edit: Meanwhile they are reporting from the stadium in München.

Here is my first report, some dropouts but great audio quality!
Interesting mix concerning the programming, classical music and reports from the world cup!

Here is a report from half past midnight till loss of signal in daylight.

WMER was always higher at the upper part of the spectrum, there were some problems from the channel below and during fading, an on-channel carrier could sometimes be seen. Since this is my first try on this frequency, my loop's position may not have been at its optimum so far.

See screenshot for typical spectrum, waterfall, impulse response and WMER plots.

Quite good results during the night even with the high bitrate, except 0000- 0030, could also be seen in Carsten´s report.

Only 65 km to TX, so no problem here at daytime except with local interference. Good audio.
Noise from some fluorescent tube light in the house reduced the snr in the beginning.
The programme is WDR 2 Klassik, the same (unwanted) material they had on DAB for some years until they switched to the regular WDR 2 programme......after the last DAB radios had disappeared in the shops here.

Thumbs down

Very sad:
In good old times they were running several hundred kilowatts in AM with a big signal all over europe, now they do not even manage to transmit a readable signal at 65km distance.

MOBILE RECEPTION

Driving from 30926 Seelze near Hannover to 48712 Gescher via B441, A2, A30, A31.
Antenna pattern seems to be stronger to the east than to the north.
Boring programme material.
