Germany and Denmark are trying to return. Some RDS from a few German transmitters and Rangstrup. Not intense enough to get Danish locals at the moment.

In return, many people from NED / NRW / NDS heard UK via tropo up to 800 km (also locals) according to FMLIST virtual logbook / ukwtvdx.forum
even Orkney has been heard via tropo in D

I picked up a few German stationa last night via tropo. None were strong enough for RDS but I managed to ID WDR5 from Bielefield on 88.8 (574km) and again on 90.6 from Beilstein (663km). It was the 1st time I was positively able to ID a German station. There was a few more dotted around the band but time wasn't on my side.

small corrections:

88.8 is tx. "Hordtberg" at Langenberg (about 150 k away from Bielefeld!!)
90.6 is tx. "Teutourger Wald" https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Teutoburger_Wald at mt. Bielstein https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bielstein ... er_Wald%29 (not Beilstein, which is located in Rhineland-Pfalz near the river Rhine

in fact, 90.6 transmitting site is located more closer to Bielefeld than 88. 8 which is located in the "Ruhrgebiet area"
thus Teutoburger Wald tx is the most North/Eastern WDR hi-power tx and can be heard 24-7 even East of Hamburg!

No Danish Tropo for me but was picking up Lincs FM last night on 102.2 funny picking it up after being there just the other week.
Though was very hard due to Smooth 102.2 but it did go in places.

That makes more sense as it's more in the same line of direction. I did think it was odd the tx's were dotted about further away then expected.

an interesting tx. worth trying out is Osnabruck on 101.8 FM but also Kleve. both run on low power but could be heard at the flemish / dutch border near the North Sea years ago with good signals during weak tropo condx already.
