Re: PLEASE READ: php error messages when making a new post

A big thanks to John and Lynton from me too. It sounds like it's been a complete nightmare.

Re: 2019 Es Season winding down

Just back from a week in Somerset - and catching up on comments. Has anyone noticed the logs posted from Ukraine in the last few days? Some distances suggest F2 propagation or something other than Es. Those logs are been deleted from Fmlist database: has there been an intervention from the board of...

Re: FM weekend tropo lift happening now

Managed to log ČRo České Budějovice from České Budějovice on 106.4 a little earlier very briefly. They were playing a Czech song which matched the webstream, but it got swallowed up by a UK station less than a minute later. The distance is 1143 km. I'm trying for more Czech stations but no luck yet....

Re: FM weekend tropo lift happening now

Superb tropo here again this morning with Hessen, NRW, Sachsen-Anhalt, Baden-Württemberg, Saarland, Rheinland-Pfalz and Bayern all coming in. Very strong signals from Hornisgrinde as I type this.

Re: 2019 Es Season winding down

Overall, meh. I think there was more activity in the last week of August than the supposed peak of the season in June, and this did redeem it a bit. Overall, the leanest season since I began DXing properly. Despite this there were still a few logs of interest e.g. Israel, Turkey (Edirne, Adana) and ...

Hi Julius. That sounds like a different language, from a Baltic country, maybe Latvian.

Re: Es 28/8/19

Caught some of this with Spain on 87.7 driving back home (probably RAC 1 as it sounded like Catalan). This was followed by, yes you guessed it, Iceland, with RÚV Rás 2 reaching RDS levels! It was still in when I got home but faded out after a few minutes. Otherwise it's been patchy signals from Italy.

Re: Es 27/8/19

Bah. Missed this one as all the action happened whilst I was at work. Managed to catch a couple of dregs from Portugal for a few minutes but that was it.

I wonder what's reactivated the Es in such a big way so late in the season?

Re: Possible tropo on Sunday and Monday

A surprise here is receiving a 3 kW Nantes local on 88.8, M Radio. Confirmed by vocal ID and comparing with the stream.

Not surprisingly, France Bleu Loire Océan is strong on 101.8.
