Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

It looks like Scotland could be heard here if the forecast is accurate. I've never had Scotland on FM before.

Re: DAB power increase in UK

Since Sound Digital came to Norwich it's been less reliable than Digital 1. A shame that most of the stations (including D1) are in mono too! I still don't have much motivation to upgrade my car stereo to DAB while they're still mono.

I haven't had much time to listen yet but I was getting good signals from SE England and Lille. Also something German on 100.5.

Re: Catherine's loggings from Norwich

I think so. There was some longer-distance tropo happening at the same time.

Re: Catherine's loggings from Norwich

I've recently come across a semi-local station I was previously unaware of: Park Radio from Diss on 107.6. It's only 33km away, but the transmitter only puts out 44 Watts. So, er, about as powerful as a lightbulb!

Tomorrow's forecast is now showing 32 instead of 36. Apparently the thermometer in my parents' garden showed 32.1 this afternoon (same as Tuesday). No storms here yet.

Ouch, the forecast for Norwich on Friday is now 36 degrees! Must be a record for East Anglia. But only 23 degrees on Saturday, thank goodness, with thundery rain overnight!

Re: 23 July 2018. How hot is it where you are in the UK?

The official advice of keeping curtains and windows closed during the day seems to have made things worse here. My flat is slightly warmer now than it was this time yesterday, with a similar outdoor temperature and more cloud. I'd rather have a hot breeze coming in than no breeze at all!

DAB has gone crazy! French, Dutch, German and even Norwegian stations are listed, although NRK isn’t strong enough for audio.

Several Belgian transmitters at full RDS and unshiftable on the car radio while driving around town.
It was the same here just after 4pm.
