Denmark still coming in well with instand RDS. Alborg is best at the moment. Rangstrup surprisingly weak.

It's still all to play for! :P

Lots of German sigs from NDR land/Bremen - plus local Radio Jade Wilhelmshaven 87.8 which is a PF (thanks to Pat). Also a fair few Dutch verticals in just reaching RDS levels.

Good DX!

I'll reiterate one of John's old jokes if he doesn't mind: if you miss this lift you'll be Schwerin!
Good DX.

And now to inject a serious note. If you look at F5LEN's prediction there appears to be a chance of ducting out to north-west Poland for those of you north of The Wash. At this time it has all faded out here.

The Ostsee area of Germany has appeared here in the last few minutes and signals are intensifying. This would appear to back up this prediction.

Ostseewelle from Schwerin is noise free on 107.3.

And just as I typed that, the Garz transmitter of Ostseewelle has appeared on 107.6. This is very close to the Polish border.

Tonight, I am receiving "Stationen när dig - Radio Båstad" from Kattegat area / Scania on 107.5 FM with music by Petra Marklund. As this station is actually only using 96.1 FM, I was right thinking suspicious "THE VOICE" frequency on 107.5 from Sjaelland is re-broadcasting 96.1 from Copenhagen normally, while this time, the swedish one had captured the source tx. by overlay. this is the only logical explanation.

Distance to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A5stad is 312 km (+ another 170 km between danish repeater and my house). Sometimes, also NDR Kultur from Flensburg is audible in the background of 107.5 FM.

this is a personal first :) :lol:
