Re: Tropo - Ireland

The only Ireland I received was Newstalk 107.4 at 1am this morning. Various TX's listed. Could not receive it on the main setup but it heard indoors on portable radio. I wonder if its a Vertical polarization TX ?

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

Re: Es 03/08/18

I am up on the Lincolnshire coast. Driving in the car at 13:30 picked up Finland on car radio unfortunately I forgot the RDS as nothing to write it down. It was same station on 87.7 and 90.7. Thought I had super tropo across the North Sea as it was very stable.

Re: Mega Es > Italy

Interesting while listening to Italy on 87.6 today the 1pm (2pm in Italy) the time signal had an echo on it. Is that because the signal arriving by 2 paths? Or was it another station underneath?
