I'm hopeful of a Spanish opening here before tomorrow's cold front flushes everything away. Fingers crossed. Closer cross-Channel regulars have been up here since yesterday evening, and BBC Devon on 103.4 is in at fair levels now.

Is that Kenwood a new acquisition Peter?
Good DX.

Mount Leinster in on several frequencies here e.g. 91.8, 94.0, 99.2 and 101.4. I don't think I've logged this one from home before. There are two things against me here: I can't go vertical, and there's a railway embankment on the west side of the road acting as an obstacle towards Ireland. Since signals have been noise-free mono conditions that way must be excellent.
Good DX.

I just come back home from work. Absolutely nothing here. I will check back later but that's insane!

Thanks Zach. Irish reception lasted for maybe 40 minutes.

Just had a very weak RNE 5 from Liérganes on 105.0. Also logged Deutschlandfunk on 101.8 briefly a little earlier from Aurich but Classic FM from Swingate took over.
Good DX.

Mainly UK nationals instead of continental stuff here. The Egem regulars are in, though - I think I'll listen to them ringing in the new year in a sec...
