Hi all. I've finally found my way to the new forum. Here's what I heard in Reading, during the unexpected Spanish and southern French tropo last night.

"Two bar" signals at times on 103.9 and 105.0!

I was also able to hear some Spanish stations on just the car radio in
and around Reading earlier in the evening, even when I was low down in
Caversham by the River Thames. Alan Pennington, also in Caversham, said
he heard 105.0 on a "Walkman" and Dave Kenny from Caversham also said
that Spain via tropo was a first for him there, in 30 years.

Nice log Ian as this was the best Spanish opening for me to date but no France here.
