** Personal Skegness 'First'

A small amount of meteor activity again overnight. My late evening session was an attempt to boost the log but this only produced some of the more regular Czech and Slovak transmitters.

I was pleased to receive Radio Studio 1 as this may further confirm my reception of the Cesena transmitter on 100.8 from the 1st. Several Italian stations were audible on adjacent frequencies during this four second burst, the next most strongest of which was on 93.4, which didn't produce RDS but was strong enough.

I strongly doubt that the France Musique transmitter on 98.6 was not Chambery as there was nothing from France Bleu Isère on 99.1 (the same site). This leaves the 1kW Alès transmitter as the next possibility in terms of power. Other than that this would be an even lower powered transmitter. No other services existed in the 6 MHz recording range to provide any other back-up.

As always, regular video uploads are on my YouTube page.

Good DX!
