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.
