Re: Tropo imminent - UK

Here in Holland, we also had recording breaking high presure. The highest high pressure since 1932. So the highest since FM was invneted. sadly, the tropo wasn't skyhigh. A bit enhanced. On thursday night a few had a short opening to Cze, that's all.

Re: Weird Conditions

That's quite interesting John. I will look into that. Indeed, how much time? I try to turn off the radio if conditions seem to be weak and save the time for when topconditions are there but you always hope.

Re: Weird Conditions

You are right, weird conditions. I try to understand propagation to get a better knowledge and try to predict what might be audible. Despite low K-Index and a relative quiet sun conditions to North America are weak. South american stations , which you expect with a higher K-Index, are receivable des...

Re: How were TA conditions overnight? (22nd)

Not spectacular John, good signals from the regulars. The NFL-stations, 1380 CKPC, 680 Boston. I listened from 2130 till 2330 and 0600-0700. 1510 WLAC Nashville was a nice surprise on both occasions. on 1350 a mix of WEGA Puerto Rico,a brazilian, a UKLPAM playing Kate Bush at 2322 which I could not ...

Re: DX Tip: 1380 WOTE Clintonville WI

Last night, december 14th was remarkably well for eastcoaststations here in the east of the Netherlands. Both 1130 WBBR and 1140 CBC RADIO were at armchair quality. I had two personal firsts: 950 CKNB with remarkable reception and 1390 WFBL New York. All between 2300 and 2400. This morning condition...

Re: 1510 KCKK Littleton CO

Pretty well heard here in Holland (I live on border Germany) as well this morning, in fact never heard them so clear and all other conditions were absent or very low signals. Even WBBR wasn't at its usual stength. Tried for other K-stations but no luck.

Re: TA lively tonight -02/03 Nov 2019

Yes, good night. Especially the NY stations were good. 1130 WBBR becoming a daily powerhouse where you can just listen to the programme "at armchair". I had better nights as this season there were no K-stations audible here in the eastern part of Holland. Had very weak signals from 840 WHAS Kentucky...

Re: looks like bumper asian evening

it varies a lot, two hours ago I thought fantastic, now it really has declined. It is not quite stable with many peaksand many downs, last night Philipines were audible on 1350 at 19.50. A hour before I thought this is gonna bring nothing more

Re: 1540 KXEL Waterloo IA USA 6311 km XHDATA D-808

Here in Holland KXEL was dominant this morning, it can differ a lot. I sometimes DX together with a friend living 50 kilometers away and sometimes we hear other transatlanti stations at same hour &frequency. Location matters, so does antenna, receiver set up etc
