Franco's Es Loggings: 2018

Post by Franco Martelli » 29 May 2018 14:19

Hello everybody,

I'm gonna report here my loggings for this year; I start from yesterday's log when I was by my home[town]village.
After a frustrating start with one and only signal from POR (while you, Britons dxers, was receiving E and MRC), it has turned to a good opening into Great Britain and Ireland despite the plenty of strong local signals over here (for example, the frequencies of BBC R1, BBC R3 and BBC R4 for both Sutton Coldfield and Tacolneston are occupied).
Radio 2 from Sutton Coldfield has been receivable for more than 90' straight with a very good musical playlist between 17 and 18h. UTC.

My 2018's season has started very soon, the 11 of May with a very short and messy opening into Spain. I was between Cavriglia and San Giovanni Valdarno (20 Kms from my home) and I only identified one signal.

In the same place I had the possibility to attend a very impressive opening, last Monday 21st, with some very short range signals coming from Sicily.
It's the second time I receive Italy through Es opening.

astonishing and great that it seems to be possible receiving ITA within ITA during E-skip.
I wonder if the same works out with France?

I remember that Cristian Puddu, maybe 4 or 5 years ago, has listened in Sardinia to the current Radio Babayaga in Lombardy (I don't remember what was her name at that time) and I remember that Fabrizio Carnevalini listened from Lombardy to some Sicilian stations some years ago.
Listening to Italy form Italiy through Es seems possibile but it's not very frequent: I've been very lucky to have the possibility of doing twice in a year.

Italy is long and narrow: the distance from the most Northern to the most Southern point of it is about 1200 Kms, while the shape of French exagone is more "compact"; for example, the distance between Le Havre and Mont Agel is about 930 Kms.

Hello, here is an update of my loggings of last ten days: it has been a poor period here for fmdxing because of the lack of openings.
Actually, the opening of last Sunday 3rd has been very massive in the whole of Italy but I had familiar commitments :x and so I only had the possibility to follow it for a little part.

A very good opening, yesterday, with 8 different countries heard; I was in my "separate branch" and I've been very lucky to have the possibility to follw an intense opening into North Africa, Spain (with very short pats to Catalunya too) and France.
