Various reports are saying Caroline is being heard at much better signal across the UK & parts of Europe. Ive just nipped out to have a listen on the car radio & it certainly seems stronger here, although its far too cold to sit in the car for any length of time! I shall have another look on the way into work tomorrow.

it could just be winter propagation
In south France (Carcassonne) you hear UK stations much better in winter ,sometimes day time...the colder the stronger signals get.
Conversely in N-France very near UK spanish stations come loud & clear when it freezes

Ah it is transmitter work - DS members are saying there have been on air announcements. More power may be applied today as well :)

Good signals on the way into work from 0800-0830. By now they would normally have faded out.

On the way home 1330 - 1400, well there was something there but only just. :D
