Re: Tropo Belgium

There was an opening from France yesterday here. Not great but something. Enough for one of the lower power stations to be received.

Re: No TV/radio antenna signal at home

An update since this has been fixed, I have noticed I am getting some stations better than before. An example is Angel 89.3 FM for the Portsmouth area. It is now more audible. Also France on 88.0 is also more audible with better reception. All that is needed is a good tropo opening to see what I can...

Tropo spell due for UK on 10 & 11 Jan ?

Just been checking the tropo & it seems there could be a tropo opening for tonight & tomorrow. With the mix of mild & now cold weather there might be a chance, although checking just now as I type there is nothing.

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

I have listened to both recordings & I cannot hear an ID. The first recording is talking about presumed light by electricity in ancient Egypt & people who are able to contact other dimensions. The second recording is about religion & science. I am not familiar with Radio 4G so I don't know if it is ...

Re: No TV/radio antenna signal at home

Finally sorted. Switched on DAB tuner today & signal for local MUX is back at 100%. Has taken longer than expected to fix because of Christmas period. A shame it also happened during the big tropo opening, but at least I had the Yagi to use indoors & could do some DAB DXing outdoors with my Sangean....

No TV/radio antenna signal at home

So yesterday Thursday I went to switch on my Sony tuner (courtesy of Chris) to check if there is any tropo on the FM band. What I found was a distinct lack of signals & which I thought must be because of conditions, only the BBC stations were heard but with some static. I then went to see switch on ...

Re: Tropo 18/12/19

You are doing much better than me. Here there is tropo but very weak, only France Culture on 94.0. Btw I received that in the car because I am not getting any radio or TV signals at home due to a communal fault with the antennas. I have mentioned this in the Discord channel.

Re: Tropo 18/12/19

Tropo still going but weak. Could hear a French station on 87.9 which is rare at my QTH but has been heard in the past. Sounded like one of the national stations, so maybe France Inter rated @ 10 kW on FM List from Parthenay/les Chateliers. Btw, earlier on when France Culture were joining the strike...

Re: Tropo 05/12/19 - France during national strike

I am receiving Culture again & just heard the same announcement about the strike, so programmes have not gone back to normal. Non-stop music continuing. When I checked the stream last night it had chat.

Thank you for the information Pascal.

I have uploaded a video of what I received...

Inter had a live news update at the top of the hour regarding the strike. Culture & Musique were still automated from what I could hear.

Tropo 05/12/19 - France during national strike

Usual France here, although Culture are playing various styles of music from soul to pop & now some modern sounding stuff with no announcer in between + non-stop so most likely automated. There was a recorded announcement at the top of the hour, which sounded like they were saying apologies for brea...

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

Your welcome. Updated again, no other new stations. Only that UK Bass has been heard doing a weekday broadcast on 16/10/19. No idea if it will be a regular or one off.
