What are people receiving? I'm currently getting db0hft from Bremen. I wasn't expecting conditions to be favourable to Germany this evening. EDIT; Sorry I'm wrong, the repeater I received was on 438.8750. That is not the db0hft frequency.

There are several Dutch repeaters on 438.8750 that are Echolinked. Is that a possibility ?

I managed to ID it as DB0SUN. The lift was coming quite strongly from Germany although as you say there were plenty of Dutch repeaters coming in as well.

The repeater was surprisingly from Bergland in lower Saxony. I assumed my reception would be closer to the coast.

Good catch.
What are you using radio & antenna wise?

I'm only using a dual band 2m/70cm vertical colinear (white stick) mounted outside on the roof. My radio is an Icom 2730.

Quite a stable lift tonight with plenty of Dutch and Belgian 70cm repeaters coming through between S4 and S8. Is anybody else receiving anything?
