Nothing heard here either, although the Americans were booming in, especially on channel 28.
Oh well, roll on Monday night. I'll be swapping the Commtron IV for the Commtron CB40F :thumbup:

I will head upto the hill to see what I can hear.

I managed a 90 mile contact last time with my Modulator and 4 watts.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.
