notice a theme there? :D
apart from 104.4 I've run out of clear channels with R4 relays on them so I think that's my lot but it was a fun experiment in weak signal detection

Le Mans stable and good mono/hissy stereo on 97.0 here. Maybe a sign of some tropo.
Good DX.

total Ffailiure at 17:00, going horizontal and trying again at 18:00 but the thought occurs that if I see/hear something I won't be able to be certain its not Larne again

chose 104.4 at 18:00 and bagged R4 Llandyfriog which I couldn't receive in Aberdaron so it obviously radiates NE better than it does to the north
