DAB DX at the Mull of Galoway

Post by Sniffingmoose » 24 Sep 2019 21:25

Just visited the tip of the Mull of Galloway Peninsula. The Mull of Galloway is Scotland’s most Southerly Point. I took my Roberts pocket DAB radio up the 115 steps to the top of Scotland’s most southerly Lighthouse. With the height of the cliffs as well I am told that you are 315 feet above sea level at the top.

I did a scan and received:-

DAB Ireland Mux1 12c

Ayr 11b
Liverpool 10c
North West Wales 10d
Northern Ireland 12d
Glasgow 11c but weak signal

Also BBC National, Digital 1 National on 11A (Not the Scottish 12A) and Digital 2 national on 11A.

Conditions were completely flat as there it was raining over most of the UK today. I would love to visit when there is tropo.
