What was going on with GRParlamento 106.7?
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.

It was down on 106.698 the last few seasons.
Its a shame they fixed it, it was useful for identification at low levels.

With the new aerial 94.9 is now open for dxing.
Heres a picture of Forfar and Bressay while Bressay was on a scatter peak. Bressay is the higher of the 2 carriers

Sometimes Derry appears below Forfar
EC9542E9-66DA-4E42-9C92-B1B14955CEBF.jpeg

According to the very useful tools on fmlist the path from Bressay to here is 57% water
It crosses the North Sea from Bressay to The Coast of North Yorkshire where it hits land

Aranmore Island off Donegal is co channel with MT Leinster but slightly offset on 94.0

I was so surprised to see a second Radio Na G on daily scatter I didn’t note whether it was lower or higher than MT Leinster but there’s only 2 Radio Na G. Txs on the channel so there’s no mistaking it

Also on 94.0 the BBC R4 tx at Long Mountain has a really wide and dirty carrier with spurs
It’s so bad its impossible to see if there are any Other R4 txs on the channel (FM list suggests that Limavady is possible from here)

94.8 Les Platons has developed a small but noticeable wobble so i can tell if I’m hearing this off the back of the ant when I’m looking for the Scottish R4 relays on 94.8
