Re: Es 2nd July 2019

2 or 3 stations trying to fight for one frequency in this opening. Very difficult for clear reception or trying to get the PI Code. Causes some frequencies to mostly sound of static.

Re: German tropo in Blackpool

Things are finally picking up here. Belgium / Egem with full RDS. French propagation also improving. Hopefully Germany will be in later on tonight, & that there will be tropo on the DAB band as well.

Re: Es 24/06/19

I received a couple of Spanish E Skip catches when scanning the band during enhanced tropo conditions this evening. Have not bothered much because like the opening before also from Spain it was very brief & in teasing mode.

Re: No Es-Season in Germany in 2019!

Apart from the early opening of eastern Europe, this is the worst Es season I can remember since I really got into it in 2010. Last year was bad too. Today I have had a few signals but just teases. I know in past seasons it can be late kicking off, & in one year there were good openings in August wh...

Re: Es 26/5

Signals from Italy on B2 in the afternoon.

FT8 on 6m was really good today. I was not around for the TA opening, but I logged Israel, Lebanon, Cyprus & Ukraine quite a few times.

Re: 25/5 Poland 87.6

A nice day with Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia & Hungary logged here on B2. Not sure if Austria & Poland was received, I will have to check my recordings again. Also OIRT was active here, I think I only got Belarus as the signals were average & not as much activity as B2.

Re: FM Bandscan in Gibraltar - 02/05/19

Many thanks for the detailed investigation work & logging of missing stations. If I had more time for DXing there, then I might have ID'ed more of the stations but I did not. 89.6 was muted by me due to Youtube copyright notice. They were playing a song from Haddaway. Trust me, I was pointing the an...

Re: ES 03/05/2019. Is the beginning of the Sporadic-e?

Logs into Fmlist (Es only, 1 to 17th of May) 2019: 1905 2018: 4763 2017: 1852 2016: 5121 Remember that 2018 even though it had a promising start, it then fell off badly. My guess could have been the very hot summer & high pressure throughout most of Europe which may have killed off any potential io...

FM Bandscan in Gibraltar - 02/05/19

https://youtu.be/3KSC0OPB4fE Receiving stations in Gibraltar during my stay there. Also plenty of Moroccan & Spanish stations. I could have logged more but some stations were too close to each other to get a clear copy. An SDR would have been a better choice but no way I could carry this for a short...

Some tropo here from France including a couple of lower powered stations. National stations like Musique & Inter have fair signal, others are weaker but audible.

Re: Es OIRT 12/05/2019

Signals on the 11m band, German speaking & Italian. 10m FT8 good. Weak FT8 on 6m for me, I keep checking the FM band but still nothing heard.

Edit: Trans-Atlantic propagation being reported on DX Maps.

Re: Es building 11th May

It seems too far east at the moment looking at dxmaps. Heard a couple of HAMs on the 11m band. FT8 on 10m still going but weak. Nothing on 6m or FM so far.

Re: Strong Es is around but MUF is low

Don't worry, you did not miss much. Very random opening, most signals were weak on my side. I have received better early openings than today's.
