Re: 2017 Es Season Off To A Hopeless Start

I guess, Greece - Spain - Italy - have all gone digital without us having recognized. That is why we do not receive FM :D

Re: Hurry up OIRT !

And another day goes by without any activity. To me it seems, this season is already over before it has yet gotten started at all! Two weeks now without the slightest sign of a trace of a signal. Just ridiculous.

Re: 2017 Es Season Off To A Hopeless Start

in fact, I have seen very interesting logs from UK in 2018, from Mike as well. he has heard Malta on several QRGS, even the high 104.6 with Smash Radio. excellent logs from the islands. however, activities in Germany and on the mainland have been pretty low throughout the past 20 days. Watch the UKW...

Re: 2018 Es Season Off To A Hopeless Start

What´s going on these days? Haven't noticed any activity of sporadic-E for 14 days now. Only one remarkable opening so far this year, and that has been on May 11th. Never experienced such a lousy kick-off. May is almost over, don't think there will be much more the last couple of days. I wonder what...

Re: France tropo

conditions on VHF-II / FM have been very much annoying this morning. strong signals from everywhere (all directions, mostly DK / S, but also including Berlin, NRW, S-Anhalt,lower Saxony etc.) and all of them pretty mashed up. stations from West (NL, BEL) almost not usable and not audible due to othe...

Re: Demise Of Dutch FM Locals

This is a European problem, in general. I have experienced the same in Denmark . 10 or 15 years ago, it was possible to receive up to 20 different local stations even on the German site of the border. Most oft them (Radio Victor, Radio Horsens, Radio Holsted, Radio Charlie, Radio Mojn, Radio Als) ha...

Re: German tropo 17 May 2018

Last night, I have heard HR1 from Heidelstein/Rhön (located next to the border with Franconia) here on 104.8 MHz instead of my local Ostseewelle ("Baltic Sea Waves") near the Baltic Sea. This is 380 km for 40 kW across Harz :o :shock:

Re: Danish Tropo!!!!

maybe there's a delay between FM and stream yes there is. in fact, the difference is almost one minute or more. I have observed that in the past and it gave me enough time to 1. record local news jingle at :30 from FM 2. switch cable from portable FM radio to network 3. record local news jingle at ...

I still don't get it or rather my ears don't. https://youtu.be/Q-Sz9X6PMtk Andy yes I can 100 % confirm this to be "Danmarks Radio P(rogram) 4 Radio Syd" from Rangstrup (ex.

Re: Danish Tropo!!!!

I am curious.
My guess in advance is RPR 1 "Studio Koelner Bucht" from Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler at 103.5 FM

97.6 could be Radio NRW - Radio Kiepenkerl with "Bürgerfunk" or even Offener Kanal Westküste

if it's ment to be 96.7 instead of 97.6 then my attempt would be Radio Bremen NEXT
