Mist = overcast = no solar energy = no interfering solar lights. So overnight of the 29/30th was interesting with Wandelstein at 908 km and other good German DX. I've got to check whether Austria or Switzerland appeared on the overnight recordings.

This evening - once again clear of QRN and a noiceable mist is appearing. Strong vertical signals from Belgium and the Netherlands are present and DAB from Holland on 5B, 6A, 6B, 6A, and 9D with audio - around 6-7 dB. NPO on 12C is data only. And Norfolk 10B has appeared again. The weather forecast from Slam!FM says that the Netherlands will have overnight mist - so bodes well for tropo.
