It's very very rare for me to get anything from Ireland but all the RTE stations late afternoon / mid evening were coming in reasonably well from Mullaghanish and Mount Leinster on a vertical dipole on the patio , plus the 50kw Kippure tx relaying Lyric FM :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JQzGIb8__4

Good signals from Brest locals this evening with some personal firsts, but I won't be DXing. Too tired after a long day and several nights not sleeping very well.

Good DX!

I had France and Ireland yesterday, but didn't have the time to monitor all day. Took the Tecsun to Bath and could hear Absolute from London on 105.8 and 88.0 from France. Absolute was actually coming in quite clear if standing in the right spot, just on the radio on my mp3 player.

This morning I have Holland, London, Ireland and France so far.

I switched to V dipole now and I am getting many low powered signal from North France. I.e. 93.3 Rire et Chansons from Boulogne-sur-Mer 500W@176km. Also many signals on BOB but too weak to identify!
