How long before Spain on MW close ?

Rather bugs me just how many relays there are on MW, hoping eventually all will be switched off, in what time scale does anyone think ?

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: Tropo 25/10/18

Hi Dave. I've had it since April 2017. All my recordings on my Box channel from May 2017 onwards were made with this receiver. Hmm ok great, you bought it new ? I've only just today heard about this receiver, great to see Andy 'am stereo' Linton talking it about also ! https://youtu.be/YSb-jAsbfPw

Yes I think because of the awful Platform B just below on 105.5 they thought a move right next to Radio 2 would be better ;-) Plus of course France Info on 105.6 often interferes no doubt when there is a just a hint of a tropo
