Tropo 27-29 September

Startbeitrag von Nick_G am 03.10.2016 18:40

Well, the 2016 autumnal tropo season has got off to an excellent start, with this being the first major event of the season. I had high hopes for this one, as both William Hepburn and F5LEN were showing a very strong finger of tropo going down into NW Spain, a bit of Portugal and down into the Atlantic to the Canaries. When these two forecasts agree then there is a very good chance that the forecast is accurate.

The first signs of something happening were on Tuesday evening with an increase in signals from Wales, SW England and Brittany. By 8 pm local Brest was reaching a full 3 bars with RDS on the XDR, and at 8.06 pm, the first hint of Spain with RNE Radio Clásica on 91.6 from Culleredo at very weak levels. The Spanish tropo really got going from around 9 pm when several transmitters from Galicia came in, some at very good strength eventually. Portugal also made sporadic weak attempts on 94.6 (Antena 2 Muro). Several new sites/stations (for me) were logged.

The tropo was still ongoing on Wednesday morning (luckily I had booked Wednesday off work) with plenty of Spanish activity although strengths were maybe a little down on the midnight peak. The duct was also extending towards Germany as Hamburg, Münster and Steinkimmen were also logged. This explains how Jürgen Bartels was able to log astonishing 1715 km tropo DX to NW Spain that morning.

Portugal reached a peak this morning with fair signals from Muro logged on 90.4 (RFM), 94.6 (Antena 2), 103.4 (Rádio Renascença) and 106.5 (TSF Rádio Notícias). Not too long after this the long distance DX to NW Spain/Portugal fizzled out.

Later on in the day there were still some weak Germans about such as Teutoburger and Brocken but these had gone by mid afternoon.

By the evening the tropo was increasing again to France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany, with sites in the latter such as Donnersberg and Hornisgrinde logged. Luxembourg reached good strength.

Thursday morning saw the last dregs of the tropo with a few weak Germans persisting such as Inselsberg, Bärbelkreuz (Eifel), Linz (Rhein) and Haardtkopf.

Overall an excellent start to the autumnal tropo season!

Hi Nick.

It's always very nice to see your logs, and of course also listen to it.
Your receptions are dreamlike, but that is probably due to your equipment :)

Good DX!

Thanks very much Kenny. My equipment is nothing that exceptional: I was using the Sony XDR-F1HD with the Körner 9.2 on a rotator.

Let us hope there are more big tropo openings before the end of 2016.
