Sunday 8.6.2008 Utö FM-DX

Summary of Sunday tropo-conditions:

We are wondering what can be heard here in Utö during really strong tropo!!!
According to the Hepburn's preview-map the conditions should have been only fair on Sunday (CLICK THE MAP) but there were stations coming from all around Baltic Sea with strong signals!!

Conditions were going on the whole Sunday starting from SE Sweden (new stn Radio Wix was highlight, first catch) in the morning.
Danmarks Radio Bornholm was strong for long time on 99.3 MHz etc. In the morning conds moved soon to Gdansk, 625 km distance (best were Hit FM, 94.6 MHz, 1.5 kW H and Radio Kaszëbë, 92.3 MHz, 2 kW H). Dozens of Polish frequencies were audible, even with RDS! Gdansk was up for hours. Kaliningrad was on 96.3 MHz but only with network-px Russkoje Radio.

On Sunday afternoon tropo moved more to Latvia and Estonia. Highlights were new Top Radio, Riga on 91.9 MHz (First time in Finland) and local Radio Paldiski, Estonia.
At late night tropo moved to Lithuania. Klaipeda gave us almost all stations from the city, forexample LaLuna and Kelyje. Kaliningrad came up again at night on 96.3 MHz and 104.5 MHz (Evropa Plus network).
