Most UK ham to ham operation (beyond simple 2m FM) is on 40m (80m at night). 2m SSB, 4m and 6m all have a strong niche following. However, 6m is highly dependent on sporadic E propagation. 160m is quite good for local comms (better at night) lots of space needed though, as you're essentially a MW station!

The Funcube dongle+ covers HF, quite sensitive in this region.

Aren't lengths of ungrounded antenna like that called a counterpoise? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterpoise_(ground_system) I'll try it myself, noise is a pain here.

Interesting stuff Simon. I'm in Liverpool, so I can't really help. I'll watch this thread though :)
