I may have posted some links here previously. As with most things regarding nutrition... it's complicated  :)

I was unable to find any of your links on here so if you wish to share a link, please do.

Those of us that are older need the help of fiber for proper "waste removal". ;) Anecdotally, I can tell you that for me, nothing comes close to the effects of dietary fibre in this regard.  :)

Also, correlation of low fibre intake with incidence of intestinal cancer has been established.

Link is dead. Do you have the title? If so, we might be able to find it that way.

an epidemiological comparison of 42 European countries

So this would not look at, for example, the Okinawan diet, which certainly consumes quite a bit of fish protein but also rice as a source of carbohydrate.

My big problem with this video is right here: https://youtu.be/MxW-JKLeu1k?t=258

No one that I am paying attention to is telling anyone to consume more processed plant foods. In fact, the opposite. These things were pushed in the past as cheap substitutes for real food but people have wised up.  Less processing is much more prevalent now. So because the corn industry pushed to have corn syrup put in everything decades ago and to then make the leap that therefore all plant-based food is weak is out of touch with current reality.

In regaling us with bioavailability info, the presenter neglected things like fiber. Good luck finding a meat that has a better fiber content than a plant-based food.

What changed in the 1970s? The misguided attempt to reduce heart disease by telling people to cut their fat intake and eat more carbohydrates (and therefore sugar, both directly and in the form of carbs that your body converts into sugar). The same photos and films will show one of the major causes of the increase in heart disease back then - smoking. We've fortunately reduced smoking rates, but unfortunately replaced it with high sugar intake, which also leads to heart disease.

You're not wrong about the old photos, the lower BMIs, and smoking.

I would suggest, however, to not neglect the effects of a much more passive lifestyle, the fewer and fewer % of the population involved in labour-intensive industries like agriculture as the late 19th century moved into the early half of the century. In North America anyway, significantly larger food portion sizes that have become the norm and significantly more time is spent in motor vehicles on a daily basis as well.

I noted him a few minutes ago and went on to other things but now I am back. SINPO 34333 on an SDR in Denmark.

I recognize the announcer's voice and little chuckle as the same announcer as The Ghoul, I think. WRONG!

1659 - ID and email address. Radio Pandora
1705 - Replay of US NPR interview of Johnny Walker on the death of the founder of Radio Caroline. Audio interruption for about a minute in the middle.
1712 - Tracy Chapman

As is frequently the case lately, there is another carrier at roughly the same signal strength a few Hertz from Radio Merlin's carrier frequency. The resulting beat frequency note makes the listening not very pleasurable.

"Le beau Danube bleu" sous des tonnes de pollution jaunātre !

The signal seems clearer on the upper sideband, at least for me.

83
ID and email address at 1942 UTC, into The Blue Danube waltz. I have them on 6960.92 KHz.

I left the room and then came back at 2004 to see the signal disappear from the waterfall. TX off.

Hard to tell if Radio 208 is recovering from modulation anaemia, from weak propagation, or from Covid 19.

Listening on an SDR in Norway. SINPO 44343 at 1930 UTC. Their modulation may be a bit weak but I'm not sure. Perhaps they need an injection of iron to get them on their feet again.  :)
ID at 1932 UTC.

1843 a few notes of "Star spangled banner" are not enough to make the Stanag stand by upright!

Because the STANAG doesn't come from the U.S. Army.  :)

Promo announcement that Ray refers to, starting with the Star-Spangled Banner, was to apologize to other users of the frequency ('the army"), saying that Mystery 21 will return the frequency "fresh and clean" when they are done with it.  ;D

Property is theft, nobody "owns" any frequency, the airwaves are there for all to use. Lol

That's why I used quotation marks.  :D ;)

I'm noting digital interference under their signal now on an SDR in Norway, but not so much on an SDR in Austria. I wonder if this is jamming or just the "rightful owner" using the frequency.

UPDATE: interference stopped at 1837 UTC.

But now it's back at 1845.

TX off the air at 1757 UTC.

I have also not noticed this at my QTH either... but it could be that Ray is at exactly the right distance from, for example, Holland, to get a combination of E and F skip from the same station, simultaneously, this can make signals stronger or weaker, depending on phasing and refraction paths.... and considering we are talking about two completely different ionospheric layers, they could affect the signal in complex and sudden ways. It could be other factors though.

Understood.

I am hearing Doppler-like effects and it is noticeable when listening to AM with a synchronous detector on several signals in the 48 meter band, so it's not just one station's VFO shifting; they are all doing this. With the use of the synchronous detector, you will hear a momentary distortion of the signal, as the effective carrier frequency shifts and as the PLL goes out of lock briefly, then comes back into lock after 0.5-1.5 seconds or so. I assume that SSB or CW would go through something similar.

I noticed this now too. Universally mediocre reception in Norway, Poland and central Italy at the moment; average SINPO ~22232.
