very poor season-start :(
I would rather say this is pretty normal regarding the time and conditions.
Usually, the season has not been started yet. Common is around May 15th.
Earlier receptions, even in April, are extremely extraordinary in Germany.

In early years, it did last until September at least, most even into October.
But the past few years it was getting worse with closure even in mid July.

Same experience here in Belgium : very sporadic and weakish signals at the low end of the band, not even one bit of RDS. Really anxious for the first big opening ... :-)
