Hi I Le Page, it would help if you gave the your listening times for reception reports. As you are just over 400Km from Orfordness, and are at the edge of the fringe contour (40dBu-.1mV), I believe that you are asking for too much for the ground/sea daytime path in respect of reception listening quality. A good communications receiver connected to a long wire or 1 meter square loop would increase the received signal strength, but as you experience a lot of electrical interference, the results are unpredictable. There is also a difference at midday of approximately 2dB ground wave reception strength during Winter and Summer. Even with another increase in transmitter power, you will be extremely lucky to get to the 'Poor' listening strength of 50dBu-.3mV, during daytime. At night (when skywave is active), you will get variable reception strengths. Not even I, and I live in Hastings, get a constant 24hr signal. At some time I will do a post for the reliable area that you get constant 24hr reception. You will just have to accept that you live too far away, to get the reception that you desire. Scottg.
