OK. I went on USB triple 5 today. There were Spanish - German = Dutch - Italian etc coming in. That's okay but I'm not really ino forign stuff. What I was really hoping for was some UK Stations out side of my local area - like the South West or London and the North ec All I get is still my local stations.


Does the skip end at my front door? Why no UK staions riding the skip?

Eastbourne to London is too far for groundwave (usually) but i often speak with Brighton etc and too close for short hop skip which is usually a few hundred miles which often happens in spring/summer.Of course radio is a weird ole thing so all of that could change and you just never know.

But you need 80/40metre ham bands for uk to uk copies in the main......

Through the Summer you will occasionally get some short skip 'sporadic-e' you can often get contacts from all over the UK.

Best UK so far has been Hastings (East) and Helliley (North) Nothing in to Kent or Brighton with either antenna, but can dx abroad with both.



Think this is just a bad location
