      Ok Andy

      Yes I tried 180 w x 2 op8 and x 2 op4 round 0100 0130 z but nothing showing on the map , at that level , the broad-band fails , so no local copy ! Crossed the other week with less power to the 40ft vert..Seems the mid-atlantic trough is ''real'' as signals passing to the south are much better..Good signals to the east , from here , no problems with 2,000 miles and low power most nights, some times only 5 watts to the top loaded L

      May be later in the week ?
