Last time I received Norway on FM: E Skip 2016

By coincidence I found this when cleaning up my old SDR recordings.

With the openings to Scandinavia during last July, I am sure the NRK stations would have been there again.

My best record of Poland? - 89.0 Radio Wielkopolsk @ 210 watts

Going over my recordings today, I received Radio Wielkopolsk on 89.0 during the opening from Poland on 29/07/20. FM List says this is transmitting @ 210 watts power. No RDS but it was good enough for PI code. I doubt I have received anything weaker from Poland, previously it was 1 kW so this might b...

Re: Hampshire pirate radio thread

First post updated. Still just the same two stations. I would have thought that during Lockdown, an extra station or two would have appeared. What I noticed was UK Bass were transmitting a bit more often. In some cases I think they were doing tests rather than live transmissions as I heard interrupt...

Re: Es 29/05/2020

I am getting Nordick language stations on 87.7 no idea which country as not strong enough for RDS. Or could it be tropo over the north sea? Hepburn tropo forcast looks good over the North sea. Need station ID. Most likely Iceland, I got it & so did others too. 8 countries logged so far in this open...

Re: Spanish unid

For all those complaining about too much boring talk on Spanish radio, just tune in to RNE Radio 3. It's a real jewel in the radio crown! (And yes they do have electronic music programming.) I also used to listen to Radio 3 when I was in Spain, as they always played stuff that was never played on o...

Re: 87.7 E155 ??????SI

A wild guess but maybe a station from the Murcia region in Spain? I say this because I noticed a lot of signals from Murcia during the opening of 23/05/20. If the station is still going on, the closest I could find on FM List is "Siete Radio".

Re: Tropo 26/04/20

The tropo dropped later on in the night, & this morning is weaker. Disappointing as I thought with the recent weather it would have built up.

Re: Tropo 26/04/20

I am receiving a low power station from Weymouth, Keep 106 on 106.3. FM List says it is 0.096 of power. First time I have received them. Also London & Belgium are improving. Just got DAB from Surrey. Things are looking promising.

Re: Lockdown 100.7 FM

Just Cherbourg on 100.7 here when I checked earlier. I suspect that tx may cause problems with Lockdown's coverage in any tropo. When I was driving back home, Lockdown FM & France Bleu where having turns the more I was moving away from the west of Southampton. Closer to its target range, I can mana...

Tropo 26/04/20

Conditions getting interesting with low power transmitters from northern France received. With the warm weather about & temperatures dropping at night hopefully things will build on the next few days.
