Re: Tropo NL

DAB has gone crazy! French, Dutch, German and even Norwegian stations are listed, although NRK isn’t strong enough for audio.

Several Belgian transmitters at full RDS and unshiftable on the car radio while driving around town.
It was the same here just after 4pm.

Re: Continental DAB 26/6/18

My portable DAB radio is normally quite good at picking up foreign signals during strong tropo, but nothing so far today. Netherlands are blasting in on FM though.

Re: Bit of a tropo goin' down

Mainly UK things for me when I last checked. But I also had strong signals from Lille and average signals from Germany/NL/Belgium.

I believe this is NOT Horizon FM, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso via multi hop.

Re: Dutch Mega-Tropo

D'oh, I didn't check the radio or this forum last night, and this morning I was listening to a podcast until the last minute before I had to get out of the car, but I did notice the Netherlands seemed strong.

It had mostly gone by the time I checked at around 16.30.

Haven't taken a selfie for ages, this one is quite old but I haven't really aged, lol.

I agree with satnipper, I need to be able to put a face to Nick's name, if he wants to of course! ;)

Re: (Dutch) Tropo at last!

There was a hint of DLF from Aurich this morning, as well as Radio 538 from Rotterdam. This afternoon Radio 2 from Egem was strong.

The 'mini beast from the east' hit last night and the snow is quite heavy now. Some of my neighbours have a habit of keeping their windows open at all times, even in this biting wind.

Re: DX records

There's a typo in one of your posts John - you wrote 100 instead of 1000...I thought "that's going to be a long list"... :D
Slightly later than I had hoped, here is a list of all the 100+km tropo I've had here in Skegness.
