Subject: RE: Radio Luxembourg 208
Auldtimer,

You will have had experience of listening to 208 both in Scotland and also "down South".

Because of the phenomenon known as "skywave propogation, the signal would actually have been better in Dundee and the rest of Scotland(I listened up in Inverness)than in the South of England.

I didn't realise at the time how lucky I was living up North.
It was also the case that we would receive really good reception from pirate stations such as Radio London and Caroline South after dark. In fact, it was even better than Caroline North, Radio Scotland etc at that time although these stations were more accessible during daylight hours.
