There is a lot of activity on the 144 and 50MHz maps, including the UK.

Dobrze!
nice catch Maciek,
teraz i Tutaj:traces on 87.5-87.9 are getting weaker and also more smeary wide & rough

i've been making I/Q recordings rather than listening live

whatever it is it will be easier to ID now many NOR Tx's are gone

i'll be very surprised if i ID anything above 87.9 due to the full band here.

Re: "BBC R.Scotland 94.3 in Poland" you are receiving that better than I received it in Loch Lomond last month ;-)

Excellent reception Maciek, many congrats! By the time I got back home everything was long gone. Once performing bandscan at 1900 local time, there were some signals with audio distortion, but nothing new.
