Propagation - RAI crept in just before midnight (GMT) via meteor.

June 28, 1999

Propagation - Nothing to report today.

June 27, 1999

Propagation - Nothing noted. 87.6 is splattered by both R Wimbledon and a pirate. Also a pirate on 87.9 in addition to the satelite tuner spurious emission from Southall on 87.85 ... in fact a quick scan produced 13 other pirates in the 100-108 MHz range alone, obviously there are yet more between 88-100 MHz. Weekends are definately not good times for dx-ing from here.

Non-dx - Following London pirates noted today with RDS

June 25, 1999

Propagation - No E's today and barely any meteor either - just a tiny "burst" this evening. Have had some tropo to France - usual candidates eg Opalis 87.9, Musique 89.4 etc.

June 24, 1999

Propagation - Absolutely nothing today ... at least in unattended 87.6 monitoring mode.

June 23, 1999

Propagation - It had to happen ... Sporadic E to Poland while I was at work. EFMH '97 lists Radio Dla Ciebie on 72 MHz channels and 100.8 101.1 101.9, but 87.6 is obviously "new" and 101.0 replaces 101.1 at least per the AF list received today.

June 20, 1999

Propagation - Lots of Tunisia today on 87.6. In fact I even drove into work at 1020 GMT listening to it on the car radio, yet nothing else dx-wise was coming in. A pretty steady signal with slow fades. More like a tropo or shortwave type signal.

Propagation - At last some action ... not a lot but some. I'm on late shifts at the moment, so didn't wake up til 0930. Hence the slight tune around to 88.6 - but nothing much else seemed to be coming in. Unattended again 1040+, and didn't appear to miss much.
