Re: How hot is at your location

33 according to the app I've just looked at. Indoor temperature is 28!

Thanks to the air conditioning at work, I get a lot of long breaks from the heat!

Re: Tropo Alert > Denmark

I'm still forgetting to check the radio when I'm at home, but I had some reasonable Belgian and Dutch signals in the car today.

Re: Tropo being received in Kent this evening

I've just noticed on the Hepburn maps that the 45-degree temps in France are causing an area of super-tropo.

Re: German tropo in Blackpool

A quick check reveals the Egem regulars but nothing major. Saw some of the alerts yesterday but keep forgetting to check due to having other stuff on my mind lately!

Re: Car insurance after getting a dashcam

Thanks John. My insurance seems to be on the cheaper side anyway - haggled it down to £234 I think, and they even knocked about 150 quid off the excess!

Car insurance after getting a dashcam

Hi all, Has anyone here got a discount on their insurance after buying a dashcam partway through the year? My policy became active in January but I have just purchased a dashcam and have phoned Admiral...to be told that they would CHARGE me for adding it as a 'modification'. Normally they would char...

Re: Es building 11th May

If you sort the listings by time, it seems the Es suddenly became tropo at 19:39, turned back to Es at 20:31, before rapidly turning to tropo again at 20:33! :lol:

Re: The Sports Thread

Just noticed that my local football team's East Anglian rivals, Ipswich Town, are at the bottom of the Championship whereas we (Norwich City) are top. Looks like we'll be Championship champions for the first time in 15 years IIRC (or division 1 as it may have been then).

Re: Who moved the start of spring?

I see the pollen index is already high, but my hayfever hasn't started yet. I think it started in mid-April last year.

Already had a hint of a suntan for about a month now!

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...

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...
