Re: What have you found on 1008, now Flevoland has gone?

Can anyone else in Norwich/Norfolk (or anywhere else) hear an awful racket on this frequency? It's not constant but sounds like some sort of whiny test tone instead of local interference - I've heard the same noise at 2 locations about 4 miles apart. There seems to be speech buried in the noise - th...

Re: Tropo Building?

VRT R2 from Egem coming in nicely again. Capital Yorkshire from High Hunsley is also strong.

Re: tropo buliding 30.12.2018

Mainly UK nationals instead of continental stuff here. The Egem regulars are in, though - I think I'll listen to them ringing in the new year in a sec...

Re: Tropo on Christmas day?

It's brewing - I have a bit of France, Belgium, Kent, Essex, London, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire!

At my parents' house we normally have Christmas lunch quite early and I 'escape' not long after the Queen's speech!

Re: Can't Receive Anything

Crikey, I wasn't expecting that when I opened this thread! The first pic reminds me of Ariana Grande's 'Dangerous Woman' era. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/4/4b/Ariana_Grande_-_Dangerous_Woman_%28Official_Album_Cover%29.png/220px-Ariana_Grande_-_Dangerous_Woman_%28Official_Album_Co...

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

If this is the former transmitter of "vibe 104-108 fm" from Mendlesham, this is the ONLY commercial broadcaster (apart from Classic FM which does send out non-commercial music) that ever reaches me in Germany during very good tropo every 2-3 years while BBC is audible at least once a year. The loca...

Nice log Catherine! Most likely it would be Classic FM Sydvestjylland from Bramming/Hedemarksvej 1A with just 1.6 kW.
Thanks again Nick! :D

Re: Tropo 17/11/18

Thanks Nick. I've just heard the Nova ID!

I've also just heard what sounded like 'Classic FM' on 107.3, as in classic hits. Also Danish I think.

At first I thought I heard Dutch on 87.8 but I think it's actually Danish.

Re: Possible tropo over the weekend

It looks like Scotland could be heard here if the forecast is accurate. I've never had Scotland on FM before.

Re: DAB power increase in UK

Since Sound Digital came to Norwich it's been less reliable than Digital 1. A shame that most of the stations (including D1) are in mono too! I still don't have much motivation to upgrade my car stereo to DAB while they're still mono.

I haven't had much time to listen yet but I was getting good signals from SE England and Lille. Also something German on 100.5.

I think so. There was some longer-distance tropo happening at the same time.

Re: Catherine's loggings from Norwich

I've recently come across a semi-local station I was previously unaware of: Park Radio from Diss on 107.6. It's only 33km away, but the transmitter only puts out 44 Watts. So, er, about as powerful as a lightbulb!
