Trop Peak this saturday

Post by nay27uk » 26 May 2017, 00:18

I have heard that on saturday there will be a tropo peak in the UK but I cant find any Tropo forecasts for the UK.

I found THIS but where the hell is the UK on that map please? (to me it looks like it is in the top left corner) does anyone know how to read that map because I dont get it at all and it is apparently the EU.

Use the dropdown menu to select the region you want to view. It's on the top left side of the page, just below the blue coloured banner. Easy to miss if you have never used Hepburns page before. Click on the map to advance the forecast.
Saturday doesn't look like anything special, but the middle of next week might be better.

Yeah thanks mate. I did use the drop down but there is no UK only EU and west EU (I think it was) the EU one is the one I posted the link to and the other EU one, west EU I could not even see the UK on it. Sunday looks reasonable, I didn't go as far as middle of next week though
