Re: What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Thanks for the info. It can only tune in 9kHz steps. That reminds me, though, that my dad's old Skoda could tune in 1kHz steps if you held the tune button down to put it into that particular mode.

I wouldn't expect to hear Toronto in the daytime though...

Here's a recording of the awful racket! When I first started recording, the noise suddenly stopped, but was back within about 30 seconds.

Re: No Noise Is Good Noise! (Medium Wave)

What does "I had a relatively medium wave" mean? :D Was that something I wrote? Maybe I posted, realised I had made a typo and edited my post. :) It's still there in the paragraph about tempting fate: "What surprises me even more is the fact that it was only a day ago that I mentioned the fact that...

My ears are still being assaulted by the noise that has replaced Gruitniews (or however you spell it) on 1008. Someone else on here mentioned they hear it too. I think I'll upload a clip at some point.

Mainly south-east England here so far today, with a bit of France and the Netherlands mixed in.

I've already had some weak Dutch signals in the car today.

Glad it's not just me! I tried to make out the speech, but it's quite painful to listen to!

Dutch has replaced my semi-locals of BBC Norfolk on 104.4 and BBC Suffolk on 104.6.

France, Belgium and NL building nicely.

Edit: semi-locals are losing strength which is normally a good sign!

Re: What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Can anyone else in Norwich/Norfolk (or anywhere else) hear an awful racket on this frequency? It's not constant but sounds like some sort of whiny test tone instead of local interference - I've heard the same noise at 2 locations about 4 miles apart. There seems to be speech buried in the noise - th...

Re: Tropo on Christmas day?

It's brewing - I have a bit of France, Belgium, Kent, Essex, London, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire!

At my parents' house we normally have Christmas lunch quite early and I 'escape' not long after the Queen's speech!

Re: Does anyone else have problems getting Kiss 106.4 Ipswich at all?

If this is the former transmitter of "vibe 104-108 fm" from Mendlesham, this is the ONLY commercial broadcaster (apart from Classic FM which does send out non-commercial music) that ever reaches me in Germany during very good tropo every 2-3 years while BBC is audible at least once a year.

Nice log Catherine! Most likely it would be Classic FM Sydvestjylland from Bramming/Hedemarksvej 1A with just 1.6 kW.
Thanks again Nick! :D
