LOGS : 09 - 15 OCT 2017

Hi,

Unusual names : Metropolis, Paisano, Vrije nederland, KR1 World.

On Wed., R. Rainbow was requesting SINPO. It was exactly an example of why I don't like to give SINPO : SINPO has no place for problems/bad quality at TX, also no place for utility QRM/QRN, no place for (modern) local noise plaguing the SW..., and at the same listening place, the results are highly dependant of the receiving antenna system. SINPO was established years ago for high power broadcasters!

R. Rainbow heard also on Friday and Saturday (on Sat., the Rainbow ID was heard on a mp3 file found on HF Underground site).

Current list of logs/blogs used for cross-checking :
Achim, LHU, UKdxer, ULX2, Terry, Caroline Team, SWCH (for any days),
and for weekends only : Toutatis, Irish Paul, Rick. Thanks to all!

(Sometimes : UTC1,UTC2 : no intermediate check)

Tips in time order, except when linked with a "|" in the spacing line.

Letter after kHz : a=approx. (or bit of wandering), u=USB, L=LSB, v=bit of drift, V=real drift

mx=music, tk=talk, D=Dutch, E=English, G=German, F=French, it.=Italian, sp.=Spanish, rpt=report, v.=very,

Please note that c'/d is a period from a few seconds to well more than an hour before the real switch off !
"Strength" notes (from e.weak to V.strong) are rather S/N notes by ear, not S-meter levels. Most of the noise is local, but seldom identified as such.
