Some good news John, Groot Nieuws Radio on 1008 kHz will close down on December 31st 2018, so that should make it easier to hear WINS and others on 1010 kHz.
Looking forward to this day, do we know what time of day the tx switches off ?

Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

It's building up nicely here with a good selections of signals already, the wideband dipole I use (48 - 108) from HS publications really is excellent (D15)
