Re: Best portable for LW?

My Sony ICF-2010 beats all my other portables for LW so I would recommend seeking one. You can also do what I have done, which is make a homebrew LW antenna that allows inductive coupling with the internal ferrite antennas of the portables. What could not be received before is now possible even on t...

DAB power increase in UK

I was listening to Absolute 80s yesterday & the presenter mentioned about UK DAB recently getting a a power increase of transmitters. The initial aim I presume apart from extending national coverage & minimizing signal dropout is to get new listeners to digital radio. To what I have seen online, it ...

Re: Tropo 25/10/18

Yesterday evening the tropo was a shadow of what it was in the morning. Only some strong national French stations remained. Strange this is that while others were reporting Germany & Switzerland being received, I had neither at the same time. I did get Germany up until lunchtime yesterday though. My...

Re: Tropo France 24/10/18

One of the standout catches for me was Radio Caroline from Rennes @ 1 kW on 90.8, right next to the BBC R3 local Rowridge relay on 90.7. Good thing the SDR was invented, otherwise no way could I have got this as I was using narrow filters & had to tune on a very precise frequency which I doubt a con...

Re: Tropo!

France I think its INTER 93.5 on my FM radio built into my mobile phone. Headphone lead as the antenna. it changes to radio 4 Wrotham depending where I stand in the garden. It is Inter from the Rennes relay @ 100 kW. A regular here during tropo lifts from France. France has intensified here with mu...

Re: Tropo!

Ireland has just come in, Mullaghanish relay. RTE2 on 92.2 & RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on 94.4. No Germany here, but had RTBF 21 on 87.6 very strong earlier on. Even better than the regular Egem VRT relays. Also what I presume was a London pirate on 93.8. According to the transmission zero list, it i...
