Re: Two 1490 Long Shots

05:22:35-ish. Sorry, I assumed the time was in the title (which it usually is).

Not to worry. Thanks for listening anyway.

Re: Tropo 21/02/19

I'm afraid I have very naff chatels at the moment. Lille has gone la la and Tournai has turned off. :( Was that it? Like the last one? Waiting for the UK to come up again now.

Re: Tropo 21/02/19

Thanks Andy.

I noticed that Egem was up here in the daytime yesterday. Now, Egem, Lille and Tournai are RDSing. There is some instability, but the aren't too bad. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Re: 21/02 - Tip

You're welcome!

Have you checked 1350? There is a lot happening on there. One North American has an echo, indicating two stations carrying the same programme. Sports, so one is probably KRNT, so I wonder who the other is? VERY interesting.

Re: 21/02 - Tip

Ah. It seems I have had WCGO here before, on 30.12.12 to be precise. I obviously forgot to put it in my all time log. Still, very nice to hear this again.

Edit: (Just ignore me today. WCGO *is* in my all time log. I forgot about my problem - I never see anything when I am looking for it. :roll: )

1320 WILS Lansing MI. Peaked beautifully, just at the right time. In fact, I ought to make this a dedicated post just so it gets spotted.

Re: 21/02 - Tip

https://app.box.com/s/pur1010yz8pjg4up3tvw7t83zbr89g7v The usual "Is it? Isn't it?" situation with weak signals here. I think this is WCGO's ID. It was present at 04 05 & 07, but this was the clearest. I *think* I hear the same "WCGO Evanston". I thought I had already had this one here, but it was a...

Re: Late tip for 17/02

Thank you Simon.

I never noticed this one. I had just deleted my files from the 17th when I read this. Luckily, this was rolling in nicely on the 18th and I caught a lively ID at 02:17:03.

Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

I trust F5LEN's forecasts more. http://tropo.f5len.org/forecasts-for-europe/ That is nothing against William Hepburn's forecasts. They are only as accurate as the data they use and I wonder if they get this from different sources, or that they simply interpret it differently. F5LEN seems to be more ...

Re: i am not superman after all

Really sorry to read this David. But come on, you ARE superman. You can beat this!

Yes, you look after yourself. Take it easy. We need you back at the dials. Hope you make a full recovery very soon.

(Can any of us look after your excellent DX while you are recuperating?)

Re: 1620 - WDHP - Tip

Loud and clear here too. :) Thanks. Well, being completely honest, "loud and clear" is probably more accurately worded thus: "Weak but I can hear what they are saying quite clearly, even though there's co-channel interference from somebody else, probably WNRP." Better signal at 07:00 when I could ea...
