Late update. I saw your location was a km from where I grew up and your local airport was the Channel9 helipad.
I can here them take off when I talk to my mum in the morning(I can hear them on her phone). I loved watching them land at channel9, SBS and RNSH.
I even got my Helo licence in 2002.
(I worked at the FoodPlus on Penshurst st in the mid 1980s)
You have a great setup. I get more reports with my antenna at 3feet/1m, however, I am in the busy NYC area.
I often get 300 messages per second, however, 99% of my traffic is less than 60 miles.
I may need to use direction antennas when I move the setup to my attic(about 20 feet/6m higher)
What type of antenna do you have to get contacts out to 300 miles?

Your handle is apt. Go Chucky!
