Re: lightning scatter

When I was young I also experimenred "storm" propagation on FM using indoor antenna and sometimes I could catch some >100Km stations...

My actual outdoor antenna is not earthed but my place has rare storms (thanks to the Seine river ?)

Re: Tropo NW Spain

Here in Normandy I had this morning a VG rds-ed "BLEU-BZH" 93 MHz from Roc Tredudon, so I presume that it can actually be well tuned in south of England.... This afternoon I have an excellent 50 dB "Radio 1" from North Hessary Tor = can be listened by any device here in my home :-)

Re: End of FM DX

In France, DAB is not going to discard FM yet... DAB is only broadcasted in few big towns here, and so many french people even doesn't know that it exists...

Re: 2017 - ES season's already over?

A friend of mine, who was in Argentat (Center of France), reported that yesterday at 11 h 30 CEST there was an ES opening from Maghreb, during one hour... 2017 ES season seems not to be fully over 8-)

Re: 2017 - ES season's already over?

Here in France that's seems to be the same case... The last ES station I could (*) fully tuned here (RDS + Audiorecord) was Radio Zoo (GR) on 90.8 MHz from Thessaloniki/Hortiatis-2 on 20th June at 19:05 CEST... since that, good tropo signals, but no ES... (*) and was at home and available for that...

Re: Sylvester is here !

Thank you John !

Yes, Le Havre's frequencies are weak ones : 1 Kw, except France Bleu 102.2 which is 2.5 Kw. All are broadcasted in vertical polarization = that doesn't help to DX them Image ...

Re: Bretagne, unusual 107.7 reception

No, this is "NRJ" and doesn't broadcast on 107.7. This is probably an Es reception.

Re: Sylvester is here !

Thank you a lot to both of you !

@Nick Gilly : Do you manage sometimes to tune to my local Le Havre's FM signals ?

Here, reception of local BBC Solent 96.1 from Rowridge needs VG tropo conditions, and since I have my antenna, I have not received it with its RDS code until now.

Re: FMDX: ES short skip - low distance records

631 Km is a very short distance for ES, congratulations ! My "record" is "only" 934 Km with Kibæk/Studsgård/Stormosevej 91 MHz '_ Alfa _' from DK, tuned last 16th june, but which is less distant than my most tropo catch, wich is P4 Norge 102.8 tuned few years ago, from Bokn/Grønnestadvegen (1136 Km)...
