I’ve just switched on my D-808 and been greeted with a song saying “hey motherf***ers” on VRT R2!

Big signals from Danish transmitters. Lots of local stations coming through too, some with full RDS!

Good DX!

In north Kent I had very strong signals from Holstebro and Alborg in Denmark during the late evening of the 30th , but nothing else. Rangstrup my usual beacon station on 97.2 was absent - and as for German stations they must have suffered a nationwide power outage. The 98.1 and 98.5 frequencies were still coming through weakly at 04:30 and 07:30 UTC on the 31st. Still nothing from Germany.
The more local DX from Belgium and France was coming in very well.

Has anybody picked up Danish DAB that wasn't on the 8B channel? I noticed 8B will be going to a small scale service so will loose that dx option in Norwich.

12C (national net) up to 5 kW
11C (Sealand+KBH) up to 10 kW

plus the local

8C (Mors)
11B (Nordjylland)
6D (Midtjylland
9D (Esbjerg)

new:
8D (South Jylland)
9B (Southwest Jylland)


I have received most of them in Germany. (9B not yet)
