Bauer is rebranding about 50 stations to Greatest Hits Radio this September. Ex Lincs stations (excl. Lincs), ex UKRD stations (excl. Pirate), ex Wireless (excl. Signal, Pulse and Wave), and the Breeze network (excl. South Coast rebranding to Hits Hampshire). Sad to see Wireless stations become part of the dull Hits network
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely complaining about the conditions.

Conditions improved to the more common Belgian transmitters and very suddenly around 20:00. I was not able to listen after this time, but conditions are almost flat again this morning, apart from an inland enhancement.

I had your local this morning, Radio Norwich 99.9.

Also DR P3 on 97.2 from Rangstrup.
Good DX.

I had no idea about this. The entire FM band has been solid with strong E skip all day. Now it's all fading away I can hear northern Germany and Denmark quite well. I just posted a main alert, so hopefully this will track inland as the evening progresses.

Good DX!
