Re: Music Newly Discovered

I'm into some of the songs by 'Purple Disco Machine' such as this one called Playbox.

The 'doo-doo-doos' will almost certainly make you think of a much more well-known song, and perhaps the beat will remind you of another one!

Re: heavy tropo

I'm currently getting stations very similar to the above. Some of them are really blasting in, and giving RDS on my kitchen radio.

Any else hearing anything this morning?

Re: Denmark starting to appear

Oh - thanks!

Edit: these languages can really confuse your ears! Reminds me of when I heard a Luxembourg station while staying in Germany near the border between the two.

I thought the same thing at first. Will listen out for an ID at the top of the hour if I don't fall asleep...

Classical music on 93.3 - I think the announcer could be speaking German with a regional accent!

Currently enjoying the music on NDR 2. It’s like the hypothetical ‘BBC Radio 1.5’ sometimes talked about on another forum!

Rangstrup here too - unusual to hear this on 102.1 as I normally get Studio Brussel or Radio 538!

Re: Tropo > Norway & Denmark

Nothing here yet - I did have some Dutch about 3 hours ago...

Edit: Interesting how the map does seem to show a clear difference between the predicted tropo strengths in Norwich and Skegness despite not being too far from each other!

I’ve just switched on my D-808 and been greeted with a song saying “hey motherf***ers” on VRT R2!

Re: 1749 - German and now English

Thanks - this method confirms it's an image! I'm using the D-808. I'm getting a signal on 1740 at the moment (as mentioned the other day!), and the corresponding freq. is 11820 which is transmitting the same programme - Radio Saudi. The other one I thought was 1716 is actually 1715, and the same met...

1749 - German and now English

Just before 8pm BST, there was a German-language current affairs program followed by a sign-off of what sounded like 'Christian Sendung' or similar. The frequency went quiet after the sign-off, but now there's English news instead. Foreign accents are involved, which initially made me think of CRI. ...

Re: UK closures

BBC always want total coverage. You only have to look at their FM coverage maps to see how much larger areas they cover than their equivalent commercial local stations. SPREAD! The BBC want to air their views to the world and the more frequencies they have the better for them. I wish the Biased Bul...
