Hello Brian - is it me being incompetent or my machines' capabilities ? I've no radiation pattern upon the above map. Here's hoping your loved ones are in good shape ! Oh - and you were given a mention on the ATV Ariels Site for your efforts in having Radiation Patterns released from the Govt Department concerned with such things. Regards from just beyond the fringe of mighty Mendip.

Details of BBC_Somerset DAB radio station
Saturday 18 July 2020 9:20PM

sandra: hello Sandra we too have listened to the 95.5 broadcast since the late 1970s - I could hear it at my fathers' in Ashley , New Milton BH25 crystal clear on a huge wireless with " vhf " and a simple stretch of wire in the 1st floor bedroom . Recently even the Tecsun sensitive set I use struggles to find the now ' Somerset ' clone bbc local station with it frequently becoming overpowered by a French broadcast when Topospheric activity arises. Even today when trying to hear how Yeovil Town were doing in their play -off game using our decent car radio the reception was extremely patchy where a few years back was clear and listenable. I fear we're being ' encouraged ' to buy newer gear but if you or your aunt and myself can't pick up digital signals or carry internet / mobile phone tech around with us , we're simply stuffed ! Regards from the SW New Forest
