No sign of anything like that here Dave. Radio 24/7 on 100.5 is usually a good indicator of Danish tropo and all I'm getting on there is Belmont. 97.2 also empty.
Good DX.

It has weakened over a period of about an hour and a half. It coincides nicely with the chart on Hepburns web site - but the 1500Z chart. The Met Office surface pressure chart for 1300 shows that a could weather front passing by is/was responsible. Which I don't remember seeing as a prediction yesterday. I got four main transmitters from Rangstrup - 95.1, 97.2, 99.9 and 102.1 - the latter was overcoming Studio Brussels for a while. If I'd been listening an hour earlier I think it would have been even better.

Only getting France upto now, but it seems to be lifting a bit here now. Pop music on 87.6 which is rare as it is normally RMC on that frequency with news & sport.

Edit: its HR3 from Sackpfeife Germany. Matches the websream.

It's a bit tricky today tbh. When I think all is over, then signals coming in again. Getting now Smilde in reverse polarisation. Germans seem to fade out.
