Re: Noise, Flags & K9AYs. Advice Needed.

Some more details here: https://www.increasebroadbandspeed.co.uk/2015/what-is-gfast Seems that G.fast profile 1 will use 106 MHz, but in future profile 2 will use 212 MHz. That'll wipe out some people's DAB reception as well. Wasn't that supposed to be the main digital platform going forward? Madness.

Re: Peter in Las Palmas, 100 kHz selectivity

Does this receiver have some form of SHARX? In the first video the radio seems to narrow the selectivity after a few seconds, which is how my car radio behaves when receiving weak signals next door to strong ones.

Re: Big Tropo?

Some good signals from NW France here, and also RNE Clásica on 91.6 weak at best. So William Hepburn was right about Spain.

Re: Big Tropo?

I don't know about a big tropo but conditions are definitely better here this evening with a small enhancement to the usual cross-Channel indicators as well as some signals from SW England, Wales and the Midlands.

Hepburn suggests tropo to Spain tomorrow afternoon/evening. We'll see.

Thanks Zach.

It was a surprise to be honest. It wasn't forecast by William Hepburn or F5LEN.

Re: Tropo Spain & SW France

Hi Zach. 88.5 would be France Culture from Bourges.

Conditions seemed quite flat when I got back home at 5.30 pm but since then the tropo has improved again, this time towards central France. Argenton-Sur-Creuse, Bourges, Niort, Guéret and Parthenay are in, with Niort and Parthenay up to RDS levels.

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...
