Re: Dutch Mega-Tropo

Unusually I've had a handful of Belgian & Dutch stations here- my location isn't favourable, being completely shielded by the New Forest plateau to the east, and my aerial points to the south. Not a thing from France though, even Caen & Cherbourg. Must have been massive for anyone in a better positi...

Re: Es Mon 4th June 2018

Yep, getting it too. This opening is a bit frustrating though, hardly been able to RDS anything. All I've got is RMF FM on 91.0, Polskie Trojka on 94.1, YLE YKSI on 88.2 and Social FM (Romania) on 96.9. The Polish dynamic RDS is irritating!

Band II log- Win Green (Dorset/Wilts border)

Took myself up to the car park at Win Green (National Trust) last Thursday- very favourable location for the south, west and north west. Shielded to the east and north east. Conditions were damp & foggy, so I'd say pretty flat propogation wise. Log as follows: 88.1 Radio 2 North Hessary Tor 88.3 Rad...

Bah. Missed the lot- stuck at work for the last 2 days inside a large Faraday cage. Looking forward to seeing your log, Sylvestre. Actually seeing as Rowridge is on the Isle of Wight, this article from a few years ago in the Isle of Wight County Press newpaper may interest you- can you see France fr...

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

But interestingly the usual strong ones like Caen and Cherbourg are barely in- I'm getting a lot of lower powered ones like Arras, and longer distance like Niort.

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

Massive tropo here- Pic De Midi on 87.9 (a spine tingler for me- that's my local one when I'm in France), and something Arabic sounding on 89.7. Surely not Morocco/Algeria? Via E-Skip yes, but not tropo....

On 92.3 Mhz I don't have any GB signal, I only get french France Musique from Cherbourg/Digosville when pointing to West, or belgian RTBF Vivacité from Charleroi/Anderlues when pointing to North-East.

Re: Tropo NW Spain

It's a good lift- loads of French stations sounding like locals- Tendance 101.0 from St. Lo is a new one for me- that's usually Kiss from Mendip for me. Currnely listening to an absolutely noise-free France Culture from Caen on 91.5. Sylvestre- just out of interest, what do you pick up on 92.3 if yo...

Re: Unidentified 88.3

Thanks. I guessed it might have been a track/artist label. Was so fleetingly in, I couldn't get a language or musical style. The opening was towards the Balkans, so Greece seems possible.

Unidentified 88.3

88.3- RDS is showing as "Modern". Sorry no PI code as I'm not at home. In via Sp-E I think.

Well that was short & sweet- managed to log a couple from Finland and something Russian sounding (Belarus?) before the whole band went quiet in about 2 minutes.

Re: 1st June Es

Italy in at the bottom of the band- a bit of a mush though, unable to ID much. Has been up to 105.1, but now seemingly restricted to below 95.0

Re: Tropo SE England, NE France, northern Germany

Some enhancement to the north east- Capital 95.8 and BBC London in at RDS levels, Eagle on 96.4 strong. Caen & Cherbourg up, but little else from the continent. DAB a complete mush- Somerset 10B is breaking up, I presume intereference from the the Sussex mux is causing this. Nothing form Berks & Nor...

Re: Southern tropo lift

Late evening update: Brest now completely gone, as has Cherbourg. Rennes on 103.1 is completely knocking out Capital on 103.2. Clermont Ferrand is in on 105.5 just above the noise. France Inter (Laval) just above the noise on 95.1

Re: Southern tropo lift

Big lift to northern France. Brest is enhanced (pun not intended :oops: )up to RDS, as is Caen and the Cherbourg verticals are coming in well on the dipole.
