Tropo is building up?

Post by zach_m » 31 Oct 2017 10:13

I just have done a quick scan and it feels like the tropo is building up. I have few low powered locals enhanced and I just had 106.5 France Info from Épinal at weak side. Also Rowridge is strong and getting signals from Caen and Tours. It could be nothing though, but let's keep watching.

Radio Espinosa Merindades 87.5 is in here now thought it was a pirate as no one has spoke yet but matches web and no speech there either.

Excellent conditions here with France all over the place and some decent signals from Spain too. In fact Galicia was coming in this morning getting ready for work so presumably this has been going on all day.
Good DX.
