Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

I trust F5LEN's forecasts more. http://tropo.f5len.org/forecasts-for-europe/ That is nothing against William Hepburn's forecasts. They are only as accurate as the data they use and I wonder if they get this from different sources, or that they simply interpret it differently. F5LEN seems to be more...

Re: Mystery Irish English Es on 88.9

There's a nasty mains hum in the background, dunno if that gives any clues? A small community station that doesn't have particularly high technical standards perhaps?

Re: HS Publications D100 Box

Hi Pascal, I'm afraid I don't know the dimensions off hand and can't get to it to measure it at the moment. However it should be easy to work out the rod lengths as the active dipole rods are cut for 48Mhz and the passive one in front is cut to 82MHz, these are only approximate figures. The spacing ...

Re: HS Publications D100 Box

Hi Pascal, Yes with a Band 1 dipole you may still get Russian sporadic E signals this coming season until they switch off the network. Outside of Russia there isn't much left on band 1 now unless you are lucky enough to get some exotic stuff from Africa, Middle east or central/south America. D100's ...

Re: Analogue TV-DX logs from 1990/91

Wow 4x BB grids that was hardcore! I had 2 in my loft stacked facing ESE from 85 to 88 until I managed to persuade my parents to let me put one of them outside on a rotator... it was joined by a 6 element B3 a few months later. I had AFN Soesterburg A80 several times between 88 and 91, not all my tu...
