I am skeptical of the Austrian U106 "hotspot". Maps of U152 show an unusual
high amount of this haplogroup in a corridor running between the two U106
hotspots. IF the numbers between the hotspots could be "adjusted" to
compensate for the U152 anomaly would there still be two U106 hotspots?

Despite the extremely low sample sizes in the Myres study, Vince Vizachero
identified Austria as a U106 "hotspot" and created a contour map to reflect
this finding. I believe that his work was reported to dna-forums.
Relatively little R-U152 has been reported from Austria, but once again we
run into the problem that so few from that country have tested commercially
that saying a great deal about the subject becomes quite conjectural -
although sensible hypotheses can be generated for testing.

That is the paper relating to Alpine Austria but it actually had a larger
sample than the one I thought I was referencing <g>. I was talking about
Myles et al that showed a similar value for Austria without pinning any
location. It had the low Ns close to the Danish data you were sharing. They
were roundly discounted by everyone who believed the only possible hotspot
for U106 was the Netherlands, and specifically discounted because the sample
was so small. Having the Neiderstatter study show about the same U106
percentage was a surprise to many because they had discounted the earlier
study. Of course, a real in-depth study would be needed to confirm either or
both of the prior ones.
