Why no Portland (my favourite)?

All were transmitting regularly throughout the weekend and (apart from Solent) not telling anybody off that I heard!

It's the line of sight over open water that does it: coming back from CI, it's good to hear the communication when there's no land in view.

Radio atmospherics have enabled me to speak to Italy on CB radio (VHF) from the car in the past - and unusual conditions (hot weather after cool temperatures combined with sunspot activity which can promote as well as destroy radio performance) will help this.
