After practically giving up on Sunday night, I gave it a second go yesterday afternoon and am so pleased persisted cause I cannot believe the results. Woke up to find my little shed had heard signals from Texas, Canada and, the icing on the proverbial cake, Southern Australia!!! This is obviously amazing but I can't help but wonder where do I go now, how can you top Australia? One thing's for certain, I'll be leaving the current set up just the way it is for a few more days yet, I'm positively hooked to the map, and will be investigating transmission next.

Must have spent four hours farting around with various receivers and frequency combinations yesterday evening without decoding a single transmission. Installed a programme to keep a check on the PC's clock this afternoon, mucked about with the Sangean's frequency and it's been gravy since. Bagged some stations from the far north of Finland and as far away as Bulgaria. Overjoyed to see we picked up a signal from as far south as Palma, our favourite holiday destination. Loving this, can't wait to start transmitting.
