I had a very quick scan of the band yesterday morning while in Leiston on the Suffolk coast, around 10am local. I noticed that Egem was up, almost RDS! There was light drizzle at the time.

Getting Egem at 'almost RDS' level on the Suffolk coast doesn't sound good, but I may have been out of the tropo zone as there was light drizzle in the air, plus I was tuning my Astra car radio at the time and I don't think it is the most sensitive thing on the planet.

Yes some decent tropo last night/this morning with Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, northern France from Lille across to Brest, and Spain logged (RNE Radio Clásica on 91.6 last night). Brest and Rennes were BIG signals this morning.
Good DX.
