Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

Yes I'm getting the retune announcement here on 91.1 from Llangollen via scatter. It should make it easier to spot these Welsh relays during tropo lifts.

Re: A bit of tropo 08/10/18

Well, considering you had Eins Live on 104.7 from Nordhelle, I'm going to take a guess that your 103.8 was WDR 4 from the same site. What were they playing?

Re: Platformb - Brighton

No. Code South is a pirate.

As for a waste of bandwidth, I coulldn't disagree more. Platform B is currently playing Afro disco/funk as I type this. Where on Heart/Smooth/Capital/More Radio would you hear this?

Re: Platformb - Brighton

It's not a pirate. It's a community station:

Sounds to me like it'll be well worth a listen.

Re: A bit of tropo 08/10/18

Some excellent tropo last night and particularly this morning with the WDR, MDR and NDR regions of Germany in last night. This morning Belgium was very strong, particularly Liège, which was over 40 dBμV. A little later I came across Antenne Brandenberg on 106.6 which reached PI level, followed by 2 ...

Re: Tropo Next Week?

Some tropo to Germany this morning e.g. Münster, Teutoburger Wald, Steinkimmen and Heide, plus big Brests and BBC Devon good on 103.4. Tropo rebuilding in the last hour or so with Teutoburger at fair levels and Brocken on 101.4. NE France is also well up with strong signals from Lille and Contact FM...

Re: Skegness Files 2016-01-01 (Au Es > FIN S NOR ISL)

I missed the opening on 1.1.16 but I have plenty of recordings from the 16.6.17 opening that Tim mentions. The band was open for much of the day, and I had Moscow on 87.9 (with PI code) and 88.7 towards the end of that day's activity.

New community station for Southampton on 99.8

It's Awaaz FM, for the Asian community. Signal strength is similar to Unity 101, i.e. weak but clear, so maybe from the same tx site.

Could be an interesting DX target.

Re: Tropo - N France, Belgium, SW Germany

Yes some decent tropo last night/this morning with Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, northern France from Lille across to Brest, and Spain logged (RNE Radio Clásica on 91.6 last night). Brest and Rennes were BIG signals this morning.

Re: Season review

In a word: mediocre. Not a patch on 2017, which had that amazing 3 week spell in June. Most openings were in a southerly direction towards Spain and North Africa, with little activity to the east or NE. One of the Algerian openings did produce a less common tx site, Ouargla, as well as a couple of n...

Re: Es from G and IRL logged in HNG and SVK

Logged some signals earlier from Slovakia and Poland at the bottom of the band. A nice change to get an opening to the east!

Re: Greece BOB

^Andrew Webster has had some stunning DX on FM, and his location is similar to yours. He lives on the side of a hill in NW England and his FM band is also jam-packed with locals. In big lifts many of them just get pushed aside by the DX.
