Once again this morning, Manchester Tower and GMC - bandboxed on 119.4 - is being received over here. A little stronger and clearer than the last time.
 
This morning, Manchester GMC has been joined by Tower on 118.630. Remarkable, I've not experienced a reception boost like this for about thirty years. That time I was receiving the Stavanger ATIS!
 
This morning, there is a vehicle on the airfield using the RT callsign 'Rover'. I don't know who or what but it used to be the ATC Landrover several years ago. The callsign was 'Delta' before that.
 
Very poor reception on the Delivery frequency this morning - 121.805. Tower loud and clear, Radar less good but Delivery not even breaking through the squelch. Even Pole Hill is coming through clear. I wonder if the transmitter power has been reduced in order to avoid interference exacerbated by the anticyclone? Many airports have GMC or Delivery on frequencies between 121.7 and 121.8.

I live 2 miles from the airport and above near the Post Office tower but cannot get the ground on delivery and haven't for nearly a week now
The aircraft on the frequency are all coming though loud and clear
 
Twev, I think the power has been purposely stepped down or there is something wrong. I would say it is the latter but I'm reluctant to report it to Tels on the grounds of it not being a pilot report, therefore not of interest!
 
Reception on 134.580 has deteriorated again. The speech and signal has been much stronger in recent days but the white noise is once again prevalent. Delivery is also a little weaker than usual. Tower seems OK!

Being elevated in the field of Law does not make one immune from the troubles of medical life, apart from a long standing Brain issue, I have been diagnosed with Angina, a condition that actually hurts. I have no family and since my precious dog Peggy died, I have have no one to oblige myself. I am unwell, cannot avoid that so I wish you all well.
