I'm indebted to Roger, G3XBM for pointing me at the news that the VC1T expedition was heard in the UK on 144MHz by G4SWX, but unfortunately no 2 way QSO was made, despite trying for 4 hours to make a two way contact. It is also reported that a station in Ireland heard portions of the VC1T transmission.
