Re: 92.2 Telford Shropshire

Not sure if you are on air now, but there is nothing here om 92.2. I am beamed towards Telford, using a vertical 9 element FM antenna. There is also a strong lift on towards your direction.

Boston Pirates

There's more pirate activity in this town than you might expect. Radio Caroline still has an outlet on 87.9. It's intermittent and only just gets into Skegness. Hours seem to be evenings and weekends. It is on air as I type with a very weak signal. The main reason for starting this thread is because...

Re: Interesting Phenomenon Noticed During Intense Tropo (and Es!)

I went down the Capture Effect path with this. But it doesn't explain why a semi-local station can dip down into the noise with no signal reading. Possibly a bit of both going on here. We still aren't sure about this odd apparent tropo effect when we receive Es. It's the semi-local transmitters whic...

Re: Tropo > Norway

I see. But you would hope for conditions to skip over Denmark. Hopefully that will happen for soon. :)

Interesting Phenomenon Noticed During Intense Tropo (and Es!)

Just having a chat with Oliver Blackburn on Facebook, we were discussing the weird phenomenon we sometimes get during intense tropo conditions. Oliver has noticed it. I have noticed it. Other FM DXers have commented on it: It's where semi-local transmitters somehow manage to fade down into the noise...

Re: Tropo > Norway

But why not on FM? True, it would require a decent lift, plus a vertical antenna, so you should be in with a chance. Never say never.

Re: Tropo From The Netherlands

Belgium is not mega strong here, but I have an abundance of strong English signals, so it's either skipping over me or it's just buried. A bit of both I think.

Tropo > Denmark

Probably worth a new thread as the other one is a few days old. I have solid signals from several Danish nationals as I type. Maybe this will propagate inland after the sun has gone down. Best signal here is, once again, Radio Max, 500 watts from Skjern (Vertical 9.2 here) with instant full RDS. Sev...
