Re: Tropo is building up?

Nice DAB Alex. I don't have my DAB aerial available at the moment but on the vertical aerial Band II is full of Dutch and Begian stations - it a messy soup of signals with some signals stronger than my local main BBC transmitter (125 kW and only 22 km). Thanks. All of these were received on just th...

Re: Tropo NW Spain

Thanks Nick. I'm often down in Hastings so will listen out then. I'd love to receive some Portuguese 70cm repeaters.

Re: Tropo NW Spain

Is Portuguese tropo ever possible on the south coast? Or is Spain as exotic as it gets on England?

I didn't bother with other channels as I've spent most of the morning so far trying to get an unstable one to three bar signal on 8B to ID.

Re: Tropo SE England, NE France, northern Germany

Band 3 is alive. 12A is NDR, 5C is DR, 11A is MTVNL, 11C is DAB+ NL and 9D is Zuidwest and Noordwest interchangeably . These ensembles are just some of the European visitors in Norwich this evening. I'm starting to loose count. What is really frustrating is I have yet to receive French or Belgian DA...

Yes 12C NPO is at full signal reading. My semi local Cambridge on 11C wiped out by 11C DAB+ NL mux.

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

I disagree with that person in regards to FM selectivity at least. It is relatively selective and would probably equal or perhaps better a cheap Chinese radio on FM. I would also question using the 909 as any benchmark when it comes to FM dx. People seem to go round in circles when it comes to porta...

Re: New good DAB+ portable for DAB & FM DX?

In terms of FM you won't beat a modded G5 or DE1103. Sensitivity seems better than any Tecsun from my experience and once modded the G5 and 1103 can equal the Tecsuns on selectivity. I'm confused about the DAB part of the post. The 69 is extremely sensitive and allows for manual tuning.I'm certainly...
