Re: Tropo > SW Germany

Receiving weak 10A with much fading but peaking to 4/5 bars on Pure Elan E3. Ensemble IDing as Obb/Schw. Checking DABList, it is Deutschland. Closest TX at 773km 6.3kW or most powerful at 810km 25kw. Take your pick with no TII code. 5C DR Deutschland is 5/6 bars peak and streaming audio frequently. ...

Re: Tropo is building up?

At 06:05 on Wednesday 01/11/2017 I received, (amongst many other European DAB Ensembles): 8B SMC D03 BE-FR Due to the Ensemble name, I incorrectly assumed this to be a Wallonie Belgian Ensemble that I had not received before. However, when I checked on Wohnort, I was unable to find it listed under B...

Re: Bands III and IV Tropo Lift

Signals still up this morning. Some stronger but others weaker. Band IV signals are weaker but extra Band III signals have come up. 9D Zuidwest NL is very strong and 5B MTVNL is stronger than last night and streaming audio more reliably. 7A Zuid NL and 8A Randstad NL are both IDing and streaming aud...

Re: 9D Zuidwest NL

Stronger this morning.
9D Zuidwest NL is streaming unbroken audio on my EL4 and 9 bars signal on my E3.
5B (probably MTVNL) has a 1 bar E3 signal, too weak to ID.
11A Norkring DAB+ is peaking to 4 bars and IDing on E3 but too weak to stream audio.

Small Inversion Enhancement

There is a small tropospheric enhancement to the SE this morning. It started last night with the signal from the Clacton 70cm repeater rising from the noise floor to S5, as the evening progressed. At that time there was no significant enhancement noticeable on 3m or 1.5m. By this morning, the 70cm e...

Re: Band 3 now!

The best seems over for the moment. 5C DR Deurschland has faded out completely. 5B MTVNL is much weaker than before. Still IDing but seldom streaming audio. 8A Randstad NL is IDing occasionally but too weak to stream audio. Leaving just a big 9D Zuidwest NL at 14 bars on my E3 and streaming unbroken...

Re: Tropo Germany

Nothing on 98.7 here and 102.5 is too close to a local. However, I have a very weak signal on Band III, Ch. 5C. A flickering 1 bar signal with very occasional peaks to 2 bars on my E3. Although far too weak to ID, this is almost certainly the DR Deutschland Ensemble. The 9D Zuidwest NL Ensemble is s...

Re: Band III Nederland, Band II Belgium

Band III has good steady audio streaming from 9D Zuidwest NL, this morning. Peaking 7/8 bars of signal on my E3 and streaming steadily on my EL4. 5B, almost certainly MTVNL, is showing 2/3 bars of signal on my E3 but not IDing. On Band II, Stu Bru, 102.1 from Egem, is 2 bars of signal on my S10 and ...

Band III Nederland, Band II Belgium

Not a big enhancement but some nice steady signals from Nederland and Belgium.
9D Zuidwest NL is streaming audio nicely on my E3 and/or EL4.
Several of the little Belgian stations are good signals on my S10.
I'm listening to 105.5 TopRadio from Staden at the mo.

Re: Band III Tropo 9D Zuidwest NL

Last night conditions here had dropped. 9D was only 1/2 bars (E3) and not IDing. By this morning conditions to the SE had improved and 9D was peaking to 7 bars (E3) and streaming audio with some breaks on the EL4. No sign of signals on 5B or 5C. However, signals from the UK are up and 10D HBB, 11A S...

Band III Tropo 9D Zuidwest NL

Receiving 9D Zuidwest NL at good strength this morning. There is some fading but it is strong enough to ID and stream audio (6/7 bars E3) for much of the time. DT81 has given TII 10/1 fs4, 10/4 fs3. Also a weak 1/2 bar (E3) signal on 5B. Probably MTVNL but too weak to ID, so far. Another weak 1 bar ...

Re: on the off chance this is not a wierd fault!

If it's stored in the radio, then it cannot be a fault.
Well done with your reception.
Another propagation possibility is Tropo assisted AS. There is a big high over Germany at the moment.

Unfortunately I have not yet been able to get it to lock to a service, so no TII Codes yet. Now, at 17:15, all signals seem to be ...
