Brests wobbling in at 20dB over 9. Bits appearing on the vertical, but nothing great here yet.

I currently have Radio Espinosa Merindades and Éxito Radio 87.5 and Euskadi Irratia 87.7 has blown off Skline Pirate :lol:
France is still very good lots of strong ones and quite a few weak ones as well.

Going east here with a big signal from Radio 100,7 in Luxembourg as well as several Germans from the Baden-Württemberg and Rheinland-Pfalz regions.
Good DX.

Where did this come from? I checked earlier in the day and the forecasts didn't look good for the South-East. Spain is virtually un-achievable here but I got lots of French stations to the south and now Germany is strong - never mind Belgian and Dutch stuff.

My band has turned French most locals have collapsed never thought I would see Radio Manchester 95.1 give to France it's obscene :lol:

Spain still hogging 87.5.

Nice DAB Alex. I don't have my DAB aerial available at the moment but on the vertical aerial Band II is full of Dutch and Begian stations - it a messy soup of signals with some signals stronger than my local main BBC transmitter (125 kW and only 22 km).

Thanks. All of these were received on just the telescopic whip of the Sangean 69. Shame I had to leave for work.
