Tropo Enhancement but unstable

Post by daveB » 26 Jan 2015 23:05

I don't know quite what reception is trying to do but a lot of German stations are coming and going - up to noise free mono. On 94.8 SWR3 from Linz (468 km )was replaced by Bayern1 from Bamberg (744 km)!


SDRPlay, AirSpyMini, RTL dongles, SB920s, Yamaha TX930. 5 ele compact yagi on rotator at 18ft agl. FM5 facing east, FM5 facing south, FM3 facing NE, OIRT dipole, 3-ele Moxon vertical facing east.

Here Ireland has come up fairly good mainly Kippure and Leinster and a little bit of Three Rock so this will probably be due to the warm air sector being pushed by the cold front which is due later.

Receiving equipment: 2 Sony ST-S311, 1 Sony ST-SE520, 1 Sony ST-SE700 2 crossed FM 5s rotatable, 1 homemade FM 3 horizontal beaming S/E, 1 vertical FM 3 fixed beaming at Ireland, 2 element band 1.

Some enhancement here too. The usual Dutch and northern France suspects are up a little and quite stable. There is a little improvement in German activity but nothing to shout about.
