VHF Reception. (Does my Radio Work?)
Everybody seemed to be hearing me Ok on Friday morning off Bembridge and on Friday evening approaching Cherbourg. But there was one point on Monday afternoon about 17 miles South of Bembridge Ledge when I was trying to talk to Galadriel and we were both hearing very broken transmissions. I suspect that we were quite close to each other at the time but didn't realise it and were still using high power (25W). It seems strange to have both transmit and receive problems at one point only. I was receiving Solent Coastguard from about 10 miles North of Cherbourg.
How did everybody else hear me over the weekend?
