Re: Denmark starting to appear

It's DR P1/P2 Catherine. They carry DR P1 during the day (news/current affairs) and then DR P2 in the evenings and overnight (classical/culture).

Re: Denmark starting to appear

Some more tropo to Denmark and parts of central Germany this morning. As I type this Wendelstein is in at weak levels on 93.7, 102.3 and 105.7. Seems to be a selective duct. Edit: beaming NE and there's a very weak DR P3 on 97.2 from Rangstrup so it's still just about hanging on to Denmark. Don't kn...

Re: Tropo NL

Good to see somebody has been getting the tropo. :) A nice haul, Nick. For your interest, the east coast saw none of it this time. Thanks John. That's odd that the east coast missed out. The maps were suggesting otherwise. Hopefully more tropo soon, although at the moment conditions are rubbish.

Re: Tropo NL

Tropo has been down into Switzerland and Bayern (Wendelstein) this evening, which also wasn't forecast. Lots of France too, down as far as Lyon/Mont Pilat.

Re: Tropo Denmark & Sweden

Thanks John. It was a bit of a let-down in a way to be honest, as the Hepburn forecast had the tropo continuing overnight and into this morning. However, not long after midnight local it seemed to mostly fizzle out, and there was nothing of note this morning. A few recordings: 97.2 DR P3 Rangstrup 8...

Re: Tropo Denmark & Sweden

Classical music was also in for a while on 93.6, which seemed to match the stream of SR P2. This would be Varlberg at 1104 km with just 10 kW.

Tropo Denmark & Sweden

Aalborg 93.3, 98.1
Rangstrup 97.2, 99.9, 102.1
Skövde 88.9 (SR P1)

Signals mainly weak but Aalborg up to fair levels on 93.3. Sweden was a nice surpise at 1252 km. Hopefully this tropo will continue to build overnight.

Re: Highlights from the 2021 Sporadic-E season

So much to listen ! Thank you Nick. I've started with the last one; I have enjoyed the nice Huna Msallats id, but I've even found a clear id of Radio Margherita at 5:22 and probably a jingle of Radio Deejay at about 4:30 (theme, what do you think?). There is at least another Italian unid but it's i...

Highlights from the 2021 Sporadic-E season

Hi all. With the 2021 season coming to an end, I thought I'd post some recordings of the more interesting reception during the 2021 Sporadic-E season at this location. This season has been superb, and probably the best overall since I started DXing seriously in the mid-2000s. I've also been in betwe...

UNID Spain 107.7 via tropo relaying RNE

Hi all. Can anyone help with this one? It's an UNID Spanish station on 107.7 received via tropo that was relaying overnight programming from RNE Radio 5: https://app.box.com/s/00wp5q9lvoeeouhtjh86glq5trih2uoc Propagation was mainly towards Galicia so perhaps it was one of the locals from there?

Re: UNID on 87.7 with spoken ID

I think something is getting screwed up by Google Translate.

Ivan Abilev's suggestion of Al Saba FM from Tripoli is looking like a more likely candidate. It's a shame they don't stream online.
