We have just completed a brilliant weekend broadcasting from the LV18 Light Vessel in Harwich.
According to the vessel owners its been the most successful broadcast in 21 years. A brilliant atmosphere with like minded people.
Our 1476 am frequency was used with audio linked back to Leicestershire 48 hours of solid broadcasting remembering the offshore days over 14th August. The 1476 transmissions were received by DXers across Europe and I have counted many good wishes (approx 300) on our studio desk from the weekend. This definitely proves MW is still with us.
So far our MW transmissions on 1476 have been received in Japan, India. Chile. Russia, USA (regularly), Brazil and all Euro countries many of these reports are recorded on youtube.com
