These recordings have been made for personal interest at my Amateur Radio Station G3XRJ located 1.5 miles from Land's End. No claim is made of any special properties of either the station or the recordings. Some will be true DX over difficult paths and some you may find interesting for other reasons. Recordings made and edited using PolderbitS Recorder

Perhaps it's just nice to hear how you sound at the other end .....

If you find yourself here and, for any reason, wish to be removed then mail me john at my callsign dot com and I'll take you off immediately, if not sooner !
