Made a major change today, I ran some new coax into the garage for the Pi and pre-amp, the coax length is now 5-7 meters instead of 20+ meters.

The splat is only a couple of hours old.

Already seen a big difference I would say I have added a good 50nm +

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
So that's about 200nm , or it is nearly 250nm?
(If the latter then "bravo")

I could really do with raising the aerial As it’s only 1.8 m above the ground. (Just)

You guys should get licenced (if not already) and mess around with WSPR, also JT65 and FT8...
