Empty band - Wednesday 11.6.2008

The FM-band here in Utö is quite weak on Wed morning. Tropo is now on low level. This means that only a few high-powers are audible from Finnish YLE, Sveriges R., Eesti and Latvia/Lithuania R. transmitters. Many stations have deep and fast fading up and down! This must be tropo scattering (See more / Tnx JTK)!
THE BAND LOOKS FANTASTICLY WEAK AND OPEN FOR Es-CONDITIONS!

A DESCRIPTION OF SITUATION IN LOW TROPO in Utö when antenna direction is south:

Finland
- Naturally
YLE's Åland (88.6, 91.3 etc), YLE Turku (89.8, 92.6, 94.3 etc.) are blocking frequencies. Also YLE Fiskars, YLE Eurajoki and Espoo are fading up/down but they can be blocked by Es-signals very well.
Some Finnish-vertical privates stations are coming up and down weak.
Sweden
Sveriges Radio Stockolm tx's 92.4 / 96.2 etc. are very weak. Gotland is also weak but peaks up often (with antenna-direction to South!). No other SR-transmitters. Great!!
Estonia
Only a few H-high-powers from Estonia are audible: 105.9 / 107.8 etc.
Latvia
- Latvia's national radio transmitters are weak: 90.7 / 91.5 / 95.9 / 101.3 / 107.7 etc.
-Latvia's Kurzemes Radio 106.4 MHz is the strongest.
Audible all the time!!
- Kristigais Radio 98.5 MHz and SWH 105.2 are coming up and down.
Lithuania
National network Lithuania are very weak up/down - 102.8 / 105.3 MHz (Klaipeda)
