14th June “Return of the Crapsman Radio”

Gary 26CT104 has been out and about in one of my main stomping grounds from back in the day. Wingreen Hill on the Wilts, Dorset border always worked incredible well in 80s early 90s where it was possible to speak to the Channel Islands during the night on FM. Guess those days are well gone now. Enjoy the video.
