Here is just a few quick comments regarding reception of R St Helena on Nov 14th – more to come later.

In Sweden quite good reception during the long broadcast but the aerial was essential.

Following the live CHAT from RMRC we understood that the signal was not
that good in all parts of Europe. Even the last hour was diffucult even in NAm
during their time-slot. No signal in Florida at 2330 UTC
