G3XIZ's beacon running 15mW on 3.555MHz to his FETer transceiver was excellent copy this morning. At peaks it was running RST569 at a distance of around 45kms.
Here is the sound clip of his signal at 10.10am today, 30 Jan 2009.
See https://www.lightningmaps.org for information on lightning in Europe. As I write, there are storms in Europe but not in the UK.
