Conditions on the route to./from Chelmsford
were very patchy and the the difference of a few hundred
miles to Italy significantly changes the propagation pattern.
But most surprising was the asymmetry of the

Swapping the transmit and receive sites suggests
a quite unusually asymmetric path, which explains why Edwin was
struggling to hear me - while he was fine over here.
The G8CYK callsign trips yet another
The call continues to be jumbled by the listening
