fundamental 1115 minus twice IF (ie 910) came out at 205,
which was next door to the old Light Programme.
I know now that this only usually happens in gthe near field, which Brid and Scarbough sea fronts were almost, 10 to 209 f wavelengths from the ship.
Never heard any Morse break through of course. Nearest coast station was 'Humber' Radio - way down in Lincolnshire. But in East Yorkoshire we could often hear PCH (Scheveningen Radio) hammering out its call sign and OST (Ostend). In those days Scheven ingen had a couple of lovely soft voiced ladies as ROs, which the UK never had as we only used former Radio Officers for the job.
