Re: (Dutch) Tropo at last!

There was a hint of DLF from Aurich this morning, as well as Radio 538 from Rotterdam. This afternoon Radio 2 from Egem was strong.

Re: Somebody has got to do it! (Snow)

The 'mini beast from the east' hit last night and the snow is quite heavy now. Some of my neighbours have a habit of keeping their windows open at all times, even in this biting wind.

Re: DX records

There's a typo in one of your posts John - you wrote 100 instead of 1000...I thought "that's going to be a long list"... :D
Slightly later than I had hoped, here is a list of all the 100+km tropo I've had here in Skegness.

Unexpected Dutch tropo 9.3.18

I wasn't expecting to hear anything foreign when I switched on the car radio this afternoon, but instead I got a strong Radio 538 on 102.1 (Rotterdam?) with instant RDS. Same station on 102.7 but weaker.

Re: Somebody has got to do it! (Snow)

I made it into work this morning but only one of my immediate colleagues was there, and we left without doing any work! I won't bother trying again tomorrow. The roads are probably in the worst state I've ever seen.

Gone here now too. You mentioned The Beach - this station was also stronger than usual for me this morning.

Re: End of FM DX

I think I read that Austria have scrapped DAB although I can't remember if this also means DAB+.

Anyone know if Germany have any plans for FM switchoff?

Re: Tropo Germany

Nothing German here - the only decent non-local signals I've heard today were from the north of England when I was in Wymondham (about 5 miles south-west of Norwich) this afternoon.

Re: Brexit :(

I'm not impressed with the lack of a guarantee for people from the EU to be allowed to stay here after Brexit. We are the ones who have chosen to leave - why should the rest of the EU give guarantees to British ex-pats before we do the same for their ex-pats? I have Polish neighbours who are homeown...
