Great thread,
As bad as pseudonyms are the Lack of qth annoys me even more than the pseudonym.
Logs without locations are useless. With everything I've got going on I just can't remember where everyone lives especially when people have similar handles like "fmdxer

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

yesterday even 95.7 was very weak, it's a shame as it used to be the little tx that could :-)
