Re: Tropo imminent - UK

I was going to mention the extremely high pressure too. Just the other day I made my first mention of DXing to the guy I'm getting friendly with. If a high pressure record gets broken and we get a good tropo it could give us an interesting conversation and he'll realise how much of a geek I am. :ro...

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Thanks guys. I've logged it as a presumed Radio 4G.

Thanks for moving the topic too John. I hadn't realised it had gone on the MW Unids!

Re: Tropo 05/01/20

Yes some weak signals from a few more distant French sites today e.g. Clermont-Ferrand, Ussel-Meymac, Lyon/Mont Pilat and Pic du Midi. Not a great deal else to report though. PS over the last couple of nights a rasping buzz peaking SSW from a dirty SMPSU has been in evidence, possibly a lamp-post ju...

Re: UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Thanks for that. There are some talk programmes listed on Radio 4G's website that look like a match for that sort of content, so I'll presume it was them.

UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Hi all. Can anyone ID this station please, logged during the recent tropo? I had logged Radio 4G on this channel during the lift, but they were playing music on each occasion. It could be them again, although this was all talk: Clip 1: https://app.box.com/s/egv8u3wa7t6ctj24raetqckizp82z1i3 Clip 2: h...

Re: Spanish tropo 2nd January

Yes some Spanish tropo noted this morning before going to work, and still going on now from the Basque region of the north coast.

Tropo 31st Dec 2019

Superb conditions to Spain continue this morning with some strong signals. Most interesting log so far is Bizkaia Irratia in Euskara/Basque on 91.9, listed with just 100 watts. Whether it's actually running that power though, is another matter.

Could be the last good day here.

Re: Tropo 30/12/19

Radio Super Amara from San Sebastián logged a little earlier on 108.0 MHz. It peaked SE and NW oddly. The most interesting thing about this is apparently it's a supermarket radio station! Thanks to Lucas/TransistorFR for his suggestion and help in IDing this.

I wonder what power it puts out?

Re: Tropo 30/12/19

Superb conditions to the north coast of Spain here now, with some personal firsts logged. Most interesting is a station on 87.5 playing music. I have the ID recorded.

Re: Denmark in Kent - again (2)

Yes Dave Denmark has been in all day here too. Sweden made it in on 87.7 (SR P1) and 91.2 (SR P2) from Halmstad earlier this evening for a while.

Re: French takeover in Cheshire 28/12/19

Also, I don't know if this is some sort of bizarre side-effect of the tropo/ducting but a little earlier I received a weak France Culture on 99.0, confirmed by matching with the webstream. Logically, this must be the Marseille tx. However, what is odd is that it peaked NE. Moving round to the SE, wh...

Re: French takeover in Cheshire 28/12/19

Sweden in now with SR P1 on 87.7 from Halmstad at 1116 km, the best distance so far in this tropo.

Edit: SR P2 also on 91.2 at 1900 UTC.

Re: Saturday onwards

It was a superb opening for winter Es. It went right to the top of the band here with Poland, Germany and Belarus logged, including BR Radius FM on three frequencies. It even went as high as 144 MHz as there were 2m contacts between France and Sweden/Finland at the height of the opening. Has anyone ...

Re: Saturday onwards

Spain in now on 96.5 with OM studio host and another OM on phone. I suspect it's Cadena SER Gijón.

Apart from that NW France is up nicely.

Very difficult to tell with such a short burst but the intonation does sound like Swedish is a possibility.

Re: FM Bandscan Dubai UAE XHDATA D-808

This is just a guess, but could the easy-listening/classical mix be because the 29th of November was a Friday, which is a holy day in Islam? BTW your unid 97.6 is Zayed Quran Radio from Fujairah, UAE. Except it was recorded on 20th Nov as per the caption on the video :) Thanks for clarifying 97.6, ...
