Although W. Hepburn’s tropospheric forecasts hadn’t predicted any extended conditions, just like almost a year ago (13.09.2011 – Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria – elevated ducting land paths up to 1350km!), the tropospheric propagation reached central Poland between 5 and 8 UTC on September 7, 2012. Tropo was developing all night long. I was receiving a weak but stable signal from Kreuzberg in the evening, which finally peaked to a perfect stereo reception with RDS in the morning. I logged lots of stations from south-western Germany. Unfortunately, bad weather didn’t let them stay for a long time.
Two days before, on September 5, I also noticed a tropospheric propagation that brought some stations from northern and central Germany, including 100.5 WDR 4, 87.6 NDR 2, 89.0 RTL, 104.5 NDR 1, 101.5 R.SH and strong stereo signal of 105.7 Hitradio Antenne @ 760km. It was quite unstable and faded very quickly, though.
