Re: XHDATA 808 FM reception

After some brief Googling into DSP portables, I came across the XHDATA 808 and noticed there's 2 going cheap on eBay at the moment. I shall be bidding, and if I don't win one I'll get one from Amazon, lol. Was previously considering a Tecsun PL-606, but discovered the XHDATA 808 has RDS which swayed...

Re: SkywavesDX Logo

Looks fine now I've done Ctrl-F5. The other day I did wonder what was going on with the logo!

Re: 29 May 2020 - "Tomato Soup"

In the car at lunchtime I had Belgian tropo being interrupted by Es from Algeria - I think that's a first for me!

Is JIL FM an Algerian one? I have Chaine as well.

Re: strong tropo down the beach now

Simultaneous tropo and Es here now!

Tropo was particularly good to NL and southeast England this morning.

Re: Tropo > Denmark

A few hints of France and NL here but that's about it. Think I'm too tired to stay up and see if things improve!

Re: Lille Good

Some of my regular Belgian/Dutch stations were in this morning. Lille was also there but not very strong.

Re: Tropo Belgium

My workplace car park seems to be a good place for receiving them; I checked again when I arrived home and they were gone.

Re: Short Break

Thanks John. I was well enough to work from home today; first time I've ever done that! Most of my workplace was apparently empty, but the team I work in can't do most of our tasks from home, so I'll be back in the office next Monday. Thanks for the sympathy on my guy-friend. On the few occasions we...

Re: Short Break

I'm self-isolating this week as I came down with a temperature (don't know how high, though, as I have no thermometer!) and sore throat on Saturday, when I woke up shivering at 4am. My muscles have been aching since then and I was still a bit warmer than usual this morning, but I'm better than I was...

Re: Windy weekend

Apparently the wind here is peaking now before gradually decreasing through the day. Met Office website says 58mph gusts; BBC says 62.

Re: Tropo imminent - UK

I was going to mention the extremely high pressure too. Just the other day I made my first mention of DXing to the guy I'm getting friendly with. If a high pressure record gets broken and we get a good tropo it could give us an interesting conversation and he'll realise how much of a geek I am. :roll:

Very similar to what I'm hearing here Andy.

Had to laugh when I saw 'Willy' on my DAB radio!

Re: Saturday onwards

Currently testing out the FM radio in my new-ish Ford Fiesta Zetec 80 (think I've got that right) and there's quite a bit of Dutch stuff coming in. A bit of German too. Will check DAB in a bit.
