Re: AM and FM Station Canceller Problems

From my reading, SDR Sharp worked with just about any SDR in "the old days", but then the developers stopped support for competing higher end SDRs to their Airspy products, so support was dropped for those competitors in the latest software updates. I believe you would still be able to use the Elad ...

Sweden

SR1 heard briefly on 92.7 over a weak Sutton Coldfield tonight, just before the hour (1900 UTC). This is addition to DR outlets from Rangstrup on 97.2, 99.9 and 102.1 and some NDR outlets from Germany.

Re: Spanish tropo

This alert was from Tuesday. A cold front went through yesterday (Thursday) morning, killing the tropo, but Spain had already disappeared here and the tropo was generally lack lustre. I should have said it was RNE5 from Lierganes on 105.0. This was all I heard, though Nick in Whitchurch (Hants) had ...

Spanish tropo

RNE5 has been slowly fading in and out here in Reading for the past half hour, very weak. Despite this, signals from the French regulars are poor, notably Brest, which is normally good if I hear Spain. Seems like narrow ducting is the order of the day, rather than widespread enhancement. Don't just ...

Denmark tropo

Wasn't sure whether to add a new thread, or add to another! After a lull in the tropo whilst we were blanketed in fog all day Sunday and this morning, conditions improved this afternoon as the fog lifted, opening up to Germany. Now, Denmark is in with steady signals from Rangstrup, 94.8, 97.2, etc. ...

Holme Moss logged via tropo in Poland and Lithuania

Just seen on the FMLIST feed that Holme Moss has been logged in Plock, Poland and Mazeikiai, Lithunia via tropo in the last hour or so. That's some ducting! It should work in reverse...

Meanwhile, my part of southern England remains a largely DX free zone...

Re: Tropo build up?

A fail here on my final day in Kent as well. Conditions the poorest this morning since arrival. Even UK Raw faded out. There was no repeat of the Irish reception that occurred on Monday evening.

Re: CARIBBEAN STATION ON 104.00

This might possibly be Omega Radio, a London pirate, which seems to vary between 104.0 and 104.1, which is an Afro Caribbean station. Not sure which they are on at present. They're online at http://www.omegafmradio.co.uk.

Re: Ashbourne Radio on 101.8 from two nearby Tx's?

Jack FM have two relays for Wallingford and Watlington in Oxfordshire on 106.4 which are even closer together. No idea if they are synchronised.
