This year's Geminids was not the enormous shower the media were predicting, but it was pretty good on the whole. Lots of regulars, so I ignored those and only logged two personal firsts (via this mode) and two rarer catches.

Good DX!

This year's Leonid meteor shower looked like it was going to be something really special as the moment I switched on my SDR there was an intense five minute Scandinavian burst, starting at 2257. But I only added two new stations to the log. Let's see what sunrise brings.

Curiously, there is a 'half speed' Chinese time signal on 1278 at 2100. The pitch is the same, but the duration is twice that of the usual pips. Anybody know who this is?

1359 had FOUR discernible Chinese time signals.

No Noise Is Good Noise (Part 2 - Medium Wave)


This noise destroys the MW band here. I thought I knew roughly where it was coming from, but it seems to be 'everywhere' !!

I tried my running my medium wave DX setup from a leisure battery, switching off the electricity supply in my house, but it did not stop the noise.

The noise puts in two appearances each day. From approximately 1500 - 1900 and again from approximately 0600 - 0800.

The bad news is that as we head deeper into the MW DX season, the peak DX times also move into the noise periods.

Using my Degen DE1103, I have walked around all corners of my garden and the noise is at full scale deflection on the signal meter. It does, however, seem to be slightly quieter in one corner of the garden. I will be clearing this space to put my flag there as soon as possible.

Based on this information, and if I am correct, the noise is coming from a northerly to north-easterly direction. Further investigation is needed.

Even when this noise is absent. there are other elements of noise across the band, ranging from burbling, buzzing and general hash across many frequencies.

Medium Wave DXing is going to be a challenge this season.

** Personal First

The Perseids became more active during the morning of the 12th. I received a surprisingly large number of Danish locals, all of them personal firsts. 105.4 had a punch up between two Danish locals. Each time I played the recording through I managed to squeeze more RDS data out of them. The PI codes of both stations appeared each time. I uploaded a few videos of these to my YouTube channel:

Disappointingly low numbers of meteor bursts during the hours of dawn. Once again, it's hard to believe we are in the midst of a major meteor shower.

** Personal First

A very typical Spanish Es opening! This has to be the most commonly received part of Spain. A couple of personal firsts sort of made up for it.

The big catch-up is still in full swing. There aren't too many files left before I have completed 2017, then there are only a few files from 2018, then I will be up to date.

Good DX!

** Personal First

Libya was today's highlight at a distance of 2478 km, but also a nice opening down the middle of Italy brought many new transmitters to my log.

Special thanks go to Thanos in Thessaloniki for help with my Greek loggings.

Good DX!
