Receiving weak 10A with much fading but peaking to 4/5 bars on Pure Elan E3.
Ensemble IDing as Obb/Schw.
Checking DABList, it is Deutschland.
Closest TX at 773km 6.3kW or most powerful at 810km 25kw.
Take your pick with no TII code.

5C DR Deutschland is 5/6 bars peak and streaming audio frequently.

Get DAB DXing!

I just finished listening to your recordings Nick. Many, many congrats! Fantastic tropo reception. Stunning signal from 107.7 Antenne Bayern from Hochries mountain in in Bavaria (1,569 m). I was at home that evening, but I missed everything due to other tings I have to finish.

Thanks Zach.

It was a surprise to be honest. It wasn't forecast by William Hepburn or F5LEN.
Good DX.

It looks like the duct was situated very high in the troposphere (possibly just below ozone layer) makes it very hard to detect by sonda measurements. Therefore nothing was showing on the maps. This will also explain longer distances.
