Re: Tropo > Norway & Denmark

Currently enjoying the music on NDR 2. It’s like the hypothetical ‘BBC Radio 1.5’ sometimes talked about on another forum!

Re: Tropo > Norway & Denmark

Rangstrup here too - unusual to hear this on 102.1 as I normally get Studio Brussel or Radio 538!

Re: Tropo > Norway & Denmark

Nothing here yet - I did have some Dutch about 3 hours ago...

Edit: Interesting how the map does seem to show a clear difference between the predicted tropo strengths in Norwich and Skegness despite not being too far from each other!

*RCS* on 87.9 here, not had a proper look yet.

Edit: wrong freq!

I’ve just switched on my D-808 and been greeted with a song saying “hey motherf***ers” on VRT R2!

Re: 1749 - German and now English

Thanks - this method confirms it's an image! I'm using the D-808. I'm getting a signal on 1740 at the moment (as mentioned the other day!), and the corresponding freq. is 11820 which is transmitting the same programme - Radio Saudi. The other one I thought was 1716 is actually 1715, and the same met...

Ah OK. :D No, I’m just using the telescopic antenna.

1749 - German and now English

Just before 8pm BST, there was a German-language current affairs program followed by a sign-off of what sounded like 'Christian Sendung' or similar. The frequency went quiet after the sign-off, but now there's English news instead. Foreign accents are involved, which initially made me think of CRI. ...

Re: UK closures

BBC always want total coverage. You only have to look at their FM coverage maps to see how much larger areas they cover than their equivalent commercial local stations. SPREAD! The BBC want to air their views to the world and the more frequencies they have the better for them. I wish the Biased Bul...

Re: 2020 DX Review

2020 was such a weird year I can barely remember anything non-covid related...but Nick mentioned the September tropo which reminds me that around that time I dropped DXing into a conversation with a friend (a fellow science-lover) who then said "oh yeah, from Holland and stuff" so it was a...

Re: Would you log it?

When I saw the thread title, I chanted "would you log it?" in the style of Bob The Builder's "Can We Fix It?".

My answer - "yes I would"! I had the same thought as Jim about identifying stations by comparing them to the webstream, which I've done before.

Tropo within UK

Just switched on the D-808 and the tropo seems to be mainly to the west, e.g. BBC Leicester with RDS.
