DAB log 29th to 30th December 2016

Post by daveB » 30 Dec 2016 16:41

A very good opening with a large number of ensembles received - the best was on 6C at 914 km and 5A at 50 watts (unless a new tx has opened and is not yet listed). Only a few transmitters could be identified - either it was the only one listed or reception from the same site in Band 2 at the same time. Thoughts turn to a more ambitious outdoor DAB aerial.

Band 2 had loads of Danish stations and North Germany was much in evidence.

Excellent log David a very impressive log here on Weds all local muxes was being battered only the Shropshire mux was left standing.
Talking of aerials must do a post about the one I built a few months ago should be good for a laugh :lol:
