DRM Heard



  • 500 km is too close for 15+ MHz.

  • Back in their days as bitXpres on 15896 kHz I actually heard them here in New Zealand, though only a few seconds of decoding. Still one of my best DRM catches ever though. 15785 is a much worse frequency with CRI on it :-(

  • And at 06:05 UTC even some signs of it again here in NZ, battling it's way through CRI!

    Disclaimer - this is on my old FRG-100 not my Kiwi's 😀

  • In Kotka, Finland, about 1500km from Erlangen the reception is good 😁


  • Awesome, thanks for the feedback! Obviously I misinterpreted my observations and what I read on their webpage. Sorry.

  • Decoded from Masset today at 19:19 UTC 29 September. Non-stop music. I'm pleased with this catch at approximately 7978 km. Power?

  • Re Radio Purga. After a flurry of activity a couple of months ago, I've heard absolutely nothing from them recently, despite checking regularly. Disappointing!

  • Was 100W in the past.

  • Pyongyang 3205 signs off at 18:00 sharp. Confirmed this week on Tuesday via my Masset Kiwi site.

    7220 kHz RRI Galbeni strong DRM signal at 05:00 UTC today in Moscow:

  • I can see Radio Romania International's DRM signal on 7220 kHz on my waterfall (0507 UTC) but it's much too weak to decode. (This is par for the course here in San Diego. Only occasionally can I decode any DRM signals, though a few are often visible if I look around.) The decoder can't even sync, but I can tell it's DRM by looking at the waterfall:

    1. It's 10 kHz wide.
    2. There's a gap in the center of the channel (DRM avoids that to reject AM carriers)
    3. I can see the three unmodulated pilots in the high half of the signal. They're at +750 Hz, +2,250 Hz and +3,000 Hz.
  • WINB Red Lion 15750kHz, 16th March 2022, 1445UTC. Too weak to get full audio.

    Why is this left and right side different look?

  • Maybe it is some military signal covering the lower half of WINB´s DRM. There are all sorts of strange signal nowadays.

    Scroll down through the thread for the explanation.

  • I happened to receive Ceske radiokomunikace on 954 KHz ("not verified" in drmrx.org list) since abt. 16:00 UTC. But I don't know whether it is test or regular transmission, although it sounds like the latter. Kiwi QTH: abt. 80 km northwest of Berlin; software version: 1.573.

  • Good catch. Might want to add your report here (account required): https://www.drmrx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3068

    Or on Twitter using tag #drmlog

  • I confirm this reception from Italy too, it began at 15:30 UTC.

    Fading peaking 9+10dB

  • Radio Ceske on 954 kHz is regularly heard and decoded when conditions are good. Location Oslo a fair distance from the tx site.
