Sporadic E opening 21st August, 2009

Es conditions were really flat today in band 1.
This morning I had weak video on R1 with BT-1 from Belarus and tonight
around 1700z I had RTP-1, Lousa on E3 with weak video.
On the Icom R7000 I could hear the E2 carriers from RTP-1, Muro and
TVE-1, Navacerrada - respective with 6M and Zero offset.
However they didn't reach video level.

E3- RTP-1 - gameshow with "fat guy".


Not much time for DXing the next days.

Tomorrow is the start of DELFSAIL 2009 in my residence Delfzijl.
Together with SAIL - Amsterdam one of biggest events in the Netherlands.
The organization expect more than one million visitors the next five days.

22 - 26 August 2009

In the morning of 22nd August 2009 a magnificent scène will unfold at the Ems estuary in the Northern part of the Netherlands. An impressive fleet of Tall Ships, square riggers, traditional sailing vessels, yachts and steamships from all over the world approaches the port of Delfzijl. Sailing ships are under full sail in the wide estuary, a picture postcard of times past!

While crowds are waiting alongside the canal and at the quaside, the majority of the crews greet them with a song, while standing at the rigging. This 5th edition of DelfSail in 2009 promises a fleet, even bigger and more varied than ever before! The crewmembers know where they are going, to the friendliest port in the Netherlands with the big heart, where ships will be moored adjacent to the citycentre.
