Tropo > Norway!

121 watt Radio Lyngdal from Raumsland is almost noise free on 107.1.

Also the 50 watt outlet on 104.2.

Good DX!

That didn't last long! A narrow duct which has either disappeared or moved elsewhere. The tropo went very suddenly!

Really good Dx considering Norway has only got a few local FM stations left.

Yes, I see a few of them have closed down. The state of radio now!

In the same vein, I just noticed that one of my semi-locals has left the band - Tulip Radio from Spalding. I'll post a fresh link to the article I just found.

Radio Lyngdal is back on 107.1. Rangstrup is also back. Not a lot else though. Very selective tropo!
