Tropo within UK

Post by Catherine »

Just switched on the D-808 and the tropo seems to be mainly to the west, e.g. BBC Leicester with RDS.

Very good conditions to Germany and the Netherlands this morning. Lots of decent strength signals. Best DX was Delta Radio on 93.4 from Hamburg, which is 63 watts at 809 km.

Best distance was Schwerin, at 905 km.
Good DX.

Mainly a welsh takeover here. 93.7 Havefordwest, Radio Cymru over the top of Radio 4 Holme Moss. Lots of hiss as the two fight it out. Also a fair signal from the 50 watt Long Mountain 91.8 Radio Wales. Also good signals from Carmel, Llandrindndod Wells and Bleanplwyf. Nothing from Ireland.
