29.12.2020 LW: RÚV Rás 1/RÚV Rás 2 (ISL) - 189 kHz

Uma estação emissora na Onda Longa que por vezes se capta de Noite em Portugal. Na verdade, são duas estações da rádio pública da Islândia (RÚV Rás 1/RÚV Rás 2) que emitem (em horários diferentes) na Onda Longa, utilizando 2 emissores. Neste caso, sintonizei a RÚV  nos 189 kHz, através do emissor de Gufuskálar (Hellissandur), com 100 kW. Gravado às 23:17 UTC do dia 29.12.2020.

Ultralight DX Challenge: último dia /last day (18.12.2020)

Último dia do desafio - e desta vez acrescentei as estações que se costumam ouvir todos os dias. Contas feitas, consegui identificar, ao longo dos dias, 114 estações. Não era o número que tinha proposto, mas as condições de propagação nem sempre foram as melhores e não pude fazer observações todos os dias. Houve outras emissões que não consegui identificar e que por isso não constam dos registos de captações. De qualquer forma, esta experiência permitiu demonstrar que o XHDATA D-808 é um bom receptor para o preço, apresentando uma boa sensibilidade na Onda Média. Deixo o registo do dia de ontem (18.12.2020):

English abstract:

Last day of ultralight DX challenge. During the last mouth, I was able to identify 114 transmitters/stations. Not the number I expected, but propagation conditions weren't always the best - and I couldn't check the band every single day. Nevertheless, this experience proved that the XHDATA D-808 has good sensitivity on MW for its price.

Novidade da madrugada do dia 17: WEGP, estação americana nos 1390 kHz. Não foi a primeira vez que a captei (cheguei a ouvi-la há uns anos, mas num receptor melhor e antes de ser vendida e convertida numa rádio religiosa católica); contudo, foi a primeira vez num receptor pequeno como o XHDATA.

Deixo as estações que consegui identificar. De referir que consegui captar de madrugada uma estação de língua espanhola nos 1560 kHz com música latina, mas, infelizmente, o sinal era demasiado fraco e o QSB tão-pouco ajudava, pelo que não consegui nenhuma identificação (e nem as emissões online de estações nos 1560 kHz salvaram a situação).

Ultralight DX Challenge: dia 10 / day 10 (03.12.2020)

Uma noite com uma grande surpresa: a China nos 1377 kHz. Presumo tratar-se da  Xizang RGD Hanyu; não consegui aceder ao "stream" online, mas o sotaque era muito semelhante ao mandarim chinês.


English abstract:

A nice surprise: China on 1377 kHz. I presume it was Xizang RGD Hanyu, although I couldn't check the Web stream. However, the language and the accent was definitively asiatic and very similar to Chinese mandarin.

Bandscan na Onda Média com o XHDATA D-808 / Medium wave bandscan using the XHDATA D-808

Porque importa distinguir o que se sintoniza na Onda Média durante o período diurno do que se escuta durante a noite, publiquei no MWLIST um "bandscan" realizado no meu QTH habitual para o desafio do Ultralight DX, utilizando o meu XHDATA D-808. A lista encontra-se disponível no endereço: https://www.mwlist.org/fi_bsall.php?omid=2167 .
