Re: Does anyone else have problems getting Kiss 106.4 Ipswich at all?

Not that I've noticed. Kiss is a good conditions indicator for south easterly reception from here. Its here most days. I'm listening to it now and signal is weak to ave and fluttery but conditions are really flat. It only takes a whiff of a lift and it is up to full RDS and its been hammering in dur...

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 - Ireland

The only Ireland I received was Newstalk 107.4 at 1am this morning. Various TX's listed. Could not receive it on the main setup but it heard indoors on portable radio. I wonder if its a Vertical polarization TX ? Yes according to http://www.fmlist.org/ all the Newstalk TXs on that freq are vertical...

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.
