I’m in Glenrothes, but not me. I’ve not done ft8 or any digital modes on 2m. I’ve done 6m, but not higher. MM7MTB
Certainly south of Fife but no ft8 here
In Midlothian; but not been on air today. MM0LBF
Not just me then - yes saw the same thing here (Pathhead) - tried pre amp off, att on, swung beam to get weaker signal - no difference no decode. Did hear a 'thump' about 2 sec before - it caused the harmonics and them distorted and wide audio. Could not take a guess at who it was - not seen anyone with that signal strength recently.
