Can try turning it on then but as usual, don't hold out any hope!

Will be up a Scottish mountain at that time - Unfortunately, the comms tower isn't finished, so can't yet be climbed to attach a Gainmaster to. But we have a 4.5MW power supply at hand, so plenty to keep the burners going! :lol:

All tuned up and ready to go. Nothing but moaning and wailing heterodyne noises as usual. Or maybe is not heterodyne.... :o

Well I know it's Halloween and as celebration the band is dead.

Hmmm, unless the object is to listen to Americans, or droning tones, this is a bit of a dead duck....

Spoke to some folk on UK40FM instead!

I think I'll go and roll some pumpkins down the mountain instead! :yawn:

How about 500 watts on AM and make the street lights flicker :D not saying that I done that but could be interesting, besides it is Halloween after all.

I went and sat on Haytor and heard absolutely nothing. No responses to my shouts :(

Diddly squat on a Scottish mountain either! Went on UK40FM again and yapped a bit on there for a while instead.

I didn't bother, and never intended to bother, AM doesn't float my boat.

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