I managed to catch the 1st program of the Montenegrin state radio, from Bjelasica.
Special conditions are needed for this reception,owing to HR1 on the same frequency.

I had a pleasant tropo day with full French dials from the morning till evening.. I was recording stations at live and have to check dozens of stored i/q.
I added some new French stations for me!
Cheers!

I added some new French too,but via Es instead of Tropo :D

Anyway,what is the average tropo distance at your location? Could the extensive water surface extend tropo signals up to 500+km,couldn't it?

I enjoy 'regional' tropo enhancing almost each day soon in the morning from 150 to 400 km away from the QTH. Often, good tropo conditions cover the whole Gulf of Biscay/Gascogne, brings me Bretagne and often the UK (750-900 km range). Sometimes Ireland come to join the 'club' being then a +1000/1200 km gap!
But I have got stations from +1900 km away under tropo ducts.. This, and also MS, are my two fave DXing modes.these days.
¡Buen DX!
