TV has been particularly disappointing probably due to the majo...

Re: Es Azores

Nice one Nick, it came in at a pretty decent strength at times. I tried and got a few weak bits of something but couldnt get a stream working in time to confirm.

Re: TA FM NOW **********

There could be a repeat. I noticed last month three late evenings in a row with big 6m openings into NA. Chris I actually think last night's opening favoured Britain rather than Ireland - as far as I could see from the map. Anyway it wasnt a 2009 or 2003, with just one station present - but more th...

Re: TA FM NOW **********

Congrats Paul! Wish I'd have checked this site last night before crashing out, didn't bother listening before going to bed. Mind you whether the signal would have reached as far as the midlands who knows?

Re: Tropo > Denmark N Germany

Lots of German sigs from NDR land/Bremen - plus local Radio Jade Wilhelmshaven 87.8 which is a PF (thanks to Pat). Also a fair few Dutch verticals in just reaching RDS levels.

Re: Tropo From The Netherlands

Yep lots of Dutch sigs making through to the midlands inc NH Radio on 88.7 which is either Alkmaar 790w or Hilversum 300w normally its only the power-houses that make it here! Also getting Radio 10 Hilversum 88.1 so maybe 88.7 is also Hilversum?

Re: Continental DAB 26/6/18

Yes congrats Jeff/Andy P! I have no decent DAB set up at home so about an hour ago I parked up on an east facing hill and had a tune around on the car DAB but all I could get out of the ordinary was the Lincolnshire MUX.
