VC1T copied in the UK on 144MHz

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.
