It's R. Rebelde out of Cuba. The others would all be very weak and unlikely at
the time slot.

Far more likely to be WYFR out of Florida, given your location.

No way, dude. That's VOA-Greenville in Portuguese. The odds of picking Bhutan
on a Sangean portable in the eastern US are microscopic.
Quote:

WYFR is in Florida, not Canada.
Quote:

It's Dr. Gene Scott's sermon from Anguilla in the Caribbean.

Deutche Welle in German.

It's R Taipei in Chinese, via WYFR-Florida

More likely R. Romania Int'l

Sounds like you're having fun!

Are you using the  "on air" filter when you are listening? That would
really narrow it down. I also suggest that you move the station
"power" column between the FREQ and station name, so you can access
the likelihood that it is one station over another.

Hope this helps narrow some things down,

M

RECEPTION REPORTS FOR JUNE 16 AND 17, 2001 TO KING PINEAPPLE ET AL

Post by Richard Staple » Wed, 20 Jun 2001 07:42:15

I am using GNPDB, and to narrow down what is where I try to look for, say, a
start time of 0400-0500 which is when I usually listen, and the frequency on
which the radio is tuned at that time.  This does, however, pose problems
since I am not yet familiar with the range and sensitivity of this set...so
that sometimes I go with what is listed, rather than digging to see if that
is what I hear.

Thanks for the advice though, I am not familiar with GNPDB yet either, so
there are lots of goodies I haven't tried yet!

Actually, I think what you heard here wasn't Bhutan, because there is a
Spanish-speaking station (South America?) on that same frequency. Bhutan is
kind of a Holy Grail for American listeners, and only a handful of people
here in the States have picked it up to my knowledge.

OK... this is a cheap tip but quite effective, as I also used the
GNPDB. I take it you make the log with a pen and paper and then are
going to the program to determine what is on.

The program is linked to the time zone you have set on your computer
and so the program always shows the UTC time for the time your
computer is set at... so when I've done a log, and I've moved into the
next hour or so... I just set my clock back to the time when I started
doing the logs and cross-reference from there. But you should have the
"on air" filter selected to do this.

Hope this helps,

M

Yes, I finally found what you mentioned about the "on air" check-box.  The
problem I was having with it was that the part of the filter-box for "on air
at this time..." which I set to betwixt 0400-0500 (here I assume that UTC
and GMT are one and the same) and the "exact match" or "substring" were
hidden under the taskbar.  So I moved it, and still saw nothing, so I had to
temporarily change the screen resolution, make the change, and then reset
the screen size.  Maybe not the prettiest way to change a setting, but it
worked!

Thanks
