Re: Brexit :(

I'm not impressed with the lack of a guarantee for people from the EU to be allowed to stay here after Brexit. We are the ones who have chosen to leave - why should the rest of the EU give guarantees to British ex-pats before we do the same for their ex-pats? I have Polish neighbours who are homeown...

Re: DAB Nederland and South UK

By 11:50 this morning, I had good audio streaming from: 5B MTVNL 9D Zuidwest NL 11A Norkring DAB+ With great luck, I managed to scan 11A Norkring DAB+ into the old DT81. Unfortunately I have not yet been able to get it to lock to a service, so no TII Codes yet. Now, at 17:15, all signals seem to be...

Re: Xmas tropo 2016 hopefully!

Dutch stations have replaced BBC Norfolk on 104.4 and BBC Suffolk on 104.6.

There's French on 101.1 which is unusual as I normally only get Classic FM.

Re: Xmas tropo 2016 hopefully!

Excellent Belgian and Dutch signals on FM here, and a good signal from the Herts/Beds/Bucks DAB mux.

Re: Suffolk DAB Mux is now on at last

The signal has gone now, and Kiss 106.4 from Mendlesham is a bit hissy which is unusual. Something up with the transmitter?

Re: uk firsts ????

It's more about personal firsts for me as well. I can also be lazy about logging; when I first got into DXing I would write everything down but now I normally only make a note of unusual stations. Speaking of memory lapses John, I sometimes get these at my young age...another daft thing I've done se...

Re: Tropo > N France, SW UK

Most of this morning's tropo was 'domestic' for me and was focused mainly on the south-east, e.g. Kent, Sussex and the 'London 3' DAB stations. There was something French on 96.1.

I checked the car radio at lunch time and there wasn't much to hear.

Two antennas got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent. I saw this on the Yahoo group once - credit to whoever it was!

Re: Was 2016 the worst Sporadic E (Es) season??

I haven't paid much attention to Es this year but the last 12-month period has been great for tropo - my first loggings of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Ireland and Wales!

Can't change e-mail address in profile

Hi, I've gone to user control panel -> profile -> edit account settings and my current e-mail address is just shown in bold text instead of a data field you can type in. Is there a way around this?

Re: Brexit :(

Thanks John. I could understand the arguments for leaving but my gut instinct was telling me we would be more secure as part of the EU.

P.S. I had a feeling the result would be 52% leave/48% remain - should've put a bet on it!

Brexit :(

I'm a bit gutted at the leave decision. Slightly embarassed that our country has decided to make itself more isolated - I think it's the last thing we need! My first thought when I switched on the radio at 5.20 was "What have we done?". What are your thoughts?
