Re: 855 Spain RNE Murcia Barefoot Etón Elite Traveler 04:24 UTC 8th Aug 2021

Hi Peter,
Despite the info showed in MWLIST, all of the RNE Spanish MW stations are actually transmitting with less than 250 kW (source: personal messages with technicians and staff in provinces). Just for you to know... 

Murcia is reducing power at night at a range of 25/20 kW and wouldn't exceed of 50kW in daylight. Many Spanish stations have reduced power as they try to maximize component's life time due to lack of spare pieces or expensive electricity bills!

73!

05:45 UTC is in full daylight here, 07:45 local time, so no chance of hearing the regional slot.
(MWlist.org does not indicate a lower power for Murcia at night. It is listed at 300kW. Cantabria is 50kW).
Thanks anyway,

Peter

No, each logging / record is separate in the database so you can't edit multiples at once. I did look at adding this in but the database would not work that way.

Re: Retekess V-115 FM/AM/SW Radio Review – July 2021

I am still on the fence a bit. It does have some good features but the performance of it as a radio is not as good as I would like.

Twenty Days In:
Over the weekend I was able to undertake some more side by side testing of this radio. I ran some tests with both my AR-1733 and TEAC PR130 against this radio. Using both the internal aerials and also trying it with my 3" FSL, the results were not great. Basically the V-115 suffers badly from both internally generated noises across the band and it also picks up weird noises from other household appliances. Using 3GG on 531kHz as a reference station, the V-115 performed the worst out of the three radios, even with the use of my 3" FSL, it still struggled to pull in much of a signal on this frequency. Going across the band and checking a number of other stations, the results were sadly repeated. The 3" FSL seems to cause a number of issues with the V-115 being unable to handle this. My TEAC PR130 overall performed better and handled the 3" FSL easily.
 
My AR-1733 is easily the best performed out of the three and I will be using this as my main DX'ing radio from now on. The recorder in the V-115 will still be used at times, mainly with the line-in feature.

Re: Retekess V-115 FM/AM/SW Radio Review – July 2021

Paul Blundell
 

Twenty Days In:
Over the weekend I was able to undertake some more side by side testing of this radio. I ran some tests with both my AR-1733 and TEAC PR130 against this radio. Using both the internal aerials and also trying it with my 3" FSL, the results were not great. Basically the V-115 suffers badly from both internally generated noises across the band and it also picks up weird noises from other household appliances. Using 3GG on 531kHz as a reference station, the V-115 performed the worst out of the three radios, even with the use of my 3" FSL, it still struggled to pull in much of a signal on this frequency. Going across the band and checking a number of other stations, the results were sadly repeated. The 3" FSL seems to cause a number of issues with the V-115 being unable to handle this. My TEAC PR130 overall performed better and handled the 3" FSL easily.

My AR-1733 is easily the best performed out of the three and I will be using this as my main DX'ing radio from now on. The recorder in the V-115 will still be used at times, mainly with the line-in feature.

Re: Loggings - 06/08/2021 - Take 2

 

Those are some good indexes, will you be updating them all to what I assume is your new scoring system?

These were logged between 7:45pm and 8:30pm at home, using my AR-1733 and 3" FSL. I was targeting a mix of lower power stations and a couple of South Australian stations which I had not logged in a while.

That one was very jerky for me, does it look the same for you?

The really astronomical indexes come from low-powered Longwave aeronautical beacons (NDB's) received at ranges over 10,000 km across the equator. 362-WK in Whakatane, New Zealand (25 watts at 11,017 km from Manzanita, Oregon) results in a wacky index of 440.68, while 366-SF in Springfield, New Zealand (50 watts at 10,977 km from Manzanita, Oregon) results in a more modest 219.54.

The best medium wave DX index at the same Rockwork Cliff would be for reception of 558-7BU in Burnie, Tasmania, Australia during the August 2017 DXpedition. That 2,000 watt station was received at 13,128 km from Manzanita, for a very modest index of 6.56.
