Re: 2020 DX Review

2020 was such a weird year I can barely remember anything non-covid related...but Nick mentioned the September tropo which reminds me that around that time I dropped DXing into a conversation with a friend (a fellow science-lover) who then said "oh yeah, from Holland and stuff" so it was a...

Re: Would you log it?

When I saw the thread title, I chanted "would you log it?" in the style of Bob The Builder's "Can We Fix It?".

My answer - "yes I would"! I had the same thought as Jim about identifying stations by comparing them to the webstream, which I've done before.

Tropo within UK

Just switched on the D-808 and the tropo seems to be mainly to the west, e.g. BBC Leicester with RDS.

Re: Catherine's loggings from Norwich

Waking this thread up again! I now have an XHDATA D-808 with FM, AM and airband. This means I have access to shortwave for the first time in about 20 years! Used to play around with my parents' radios as a child but of course didn't really know what I was doing. I've decided to try and receive North...

Re: XHDATA 808 FM reception

After some brief Googling into DSP portables, I came across the XHDATA 808 and noticed there's 2 going cheap on eBay at the moment. I shall be bidding, and if I don't win one I'll get one from Amazon, lol. Was previously considering a Tecsun PL-606, but discovered the XHDATA 808 has RDS which swayed...

In the car at lunchtime I had Belgian tropo being interrupted by Es from Algeria - I think that's a first for me!

A few hints of France and NL here but that's about it. Think I'm too tired to stay up and see if things improve!

Re: Short Break

Thanks John. I was well enough to work from home today; first time I've ever done that! Most of my workplace was apparently empty, but the team I work in can't do most of our tasks from home, so I'll be back in the office next Monday. Thanks for the sympathy on my guy-friend. On the few occasions we...
