This was a minor enhancement to the continent, and quite an enhancement to other parts of the UK. Forgot to mention, there was a signal on 104.2, either BBC Northampton or BBC Kent. I tried getting BBC Kent on 96.7, a regular guest during more extreme tropospheric events in the direction of London, but today, that frequency was swamped completely by KLFM, as normal. I also tried Clermont Carn (Ireland) on 87.8, but nothing came up, and I have never once got Ireland on FM. I wish myself good luck with the two rooftop Korner 9.2s (one horizontal and the other vertical), the software-defined radios and the HS Publications antenna phaser for years to come.

Alex, if you still want to get a Körner 9.2 then I'd get one now. Antennenland have a few back in stock at the moment:
