Re: Benin worked 6m FT Southern Occitania

Excellent conditions today in the Cabardes Badlands of southern Occitania on 6m. Israel (FT8) , Eqypt (cw) and Ghana (cw) have all gone into the log.

Re: Unid Scottish on 52.875

At the beginning it sounds like Clloyd Community Radio Station.

The Clloyd is almost certainly not correct - may be a gaelic name. Can't find anything similar on ofcom's list.

I know some words change meaning over time but when did sporadic go from meaning “occasionally in a random fashion” to “regular as clockwork”...?
