Re: Tropo Building?

I just had my first DAB DX
Quite by accident I decided to rescan mums kitchen DAB Rx at 1709ut to prune the defunct stations like bfbs

Its stored Radio XL (Birmingham), Free Radio Wolverhampton, Nation Radio somewhere in Wales & Pirate FM ( Cornwall!)

All to weak for audio but nice none the less

Re: 71.98(sic) weak unid 24-06-18

Sorry for the late reply, you probably read everything that went on with me this year.
