Re: Short Break

I'm self-isolating this week as I came down with a temperature (don't know how high, though, as I have no thermometer!) and sore throat on Saturday, when I woke up shivering at 4am. My muscles have been aching since then and I was still a bit warmer than usual this morning, but I'm better than I was...

Re: Windy weekend

Apparently the wind here is peaking now before gradually decreasing through the day. Met Office website says 58mph gusts; BBC says 62.

Re: Tropo imminent - UK

I was going to mention the extremely high pressure too. Just the other day I made my first mention of DXing to the guy I'm getting friendly with. If a high pressure record gets broken and we get a good tropo it could give us an interesting conversation and he'll realise how much of a geek I am. :roll:

Very similar to what I'm hearing here Andy.

Had to laugh when I saw 'Willy' on my DAB radio!

Re: Saturday onwards

Currently testing out the FM radio in my new-ish Ford Fiesta Zetec 80 (think I've got that right) and there's quite a bit of Dutch stuff coming in. A bit of German too. Will check DAB in a bit.

Re: How hot is at your location

33 according to the app I've just looked at. Indoor temperature is 28!

Thanks to the air conditioning at work, I get a lot of long breaks from the heat!

Re: Tropo Alert > Denmark

I'm still forgetting to check the radio when I'm at home, but I had some reasonable Belgian and Dutch signals in the car today.

Re: Tropo being received in Kent this evening

I've just noticed on the Hepburn maps that the 45-degree temps in France are causing an area of super-tropo.

A quick check reveals the Egem regulars but nothing major. Saw some of the alerts yesterday but keep forgetting to check due to having other stuff on my mind lately!

Re: Car insurance after getting a dashcam

Thanks John. My insurance seems to be on the cheaper side anyway - haggled it down to £234 I think, and they even knocked about 150 quid off the excess!
