Re: Tropo is building up?

Just finished to listening you recordings Nick. Great catches from Spain, specially Culleredo & Páramo. Spain is too far from here, Pyrenees blocking all signals :) Good DX. Thanks Zach. Those transmitters in Spain are on the north coast, much further along than the Pyrenees. The path is across the...

Re: Tropo is building up?

Excellent conditions here with France all over the place and some decent signals from Spain too. In fact Galicia was coming in this morning getting ready for work so presumably this has been going on all day.

That's a fantastic signal for a pirate at that distance Andy! I wonder how much power they are putting out?

Re: Poland on Tropo 17 October 2017

Was it received on Sony XDR? It sounds like it. Great catch. I had mine on a different laptop. I need to find it first :) Hi Zach. No it was received on the RBRX Encore, which is a DSP-based receiver with adaptive noise reduction like the XDR. It was set up to make the most of very weak signals. I ...

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

Yes, these are few exceptions. "Radio Orient" boradcasts news in arabic from its lebanese sister station, and "Radio Alfa" broadcasts also shows in portuguese in addition to French ones, because of the numerous portugese people who live in Paris. I didn't know that "Radio Orient" broadcasts its leb...

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

As I know there is no FM station in France which broadcasts in arabic (*). Our two major Arabic-themed stations, "Beur FM" and "France Maghreb" are in french. I believe that your signal could be from Maghreb, which would be a nice tropo catch ! (*) In France, only French or regional-spoken language...
