Poor conditions on shortwave as low pressure passes over the UK this weekend

Saturday geek lunch and proof that radio conditions are as bad as the weather! This is a fax image I broadcast on 7 MHz shortwave just now – original for transmission (middle), received on nearby radio (bottom) and received just 400 miles away at the University of Twente, Enschede, Netherlands (top). Normally Twente gets a super strong signal from me but that low pressure weather system passing over the UK seems to be causing a massive amount of radio disturbance.
