I got something that sounded like it could be BBC Wales on 91.1 FM at lunchtime but can't find it listed. Any ideas?
Its the old BBC Radio 3 TX at Llangollen, they switched it over to BBC Wales a few weeks ago.

Re: Tropo France 24/10/18

During the evening I had Légende FM, Plouguernau/Grouanec on 107.6 which apparently is a 6 month temporary 100w station on the Brest peninsular. It was in for a couple of hours playing 90s /early 2000s Alt/Indie music... I was pretty chuffed to get that this far north!

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.
