Skegness Log: 2017-06-06 (Es: Madeira)

 88.0 1833 MDR Rádio Renascença, Pico do Silva (md) OM talk, as web  2656km

** Personal First

This evening's reception came as a surprise. I had friends round for dinner and I was showing the more 'geeky' one of them my new-look shack after having done a lot of woodwork and cabinet/shelf making. The computer was switched on, DX Maps sporadic E map showing on the monitor, when I noticed the path was open from the UK to Madeira. I swung the antenna in the appropriate direction and, lo and behold, there was Radio Renascenca, just fading out on 88.0. I caught the web stream just in time to confirm that it was indeed Radio Renascenca.

Good DX!
