In reply to OK7OK:
Hi again Darius,
As you hail from Warrington that would explain why you almost sounded like a local to me. While many non-English stations are incredibly fluent in English, I was taken by your apparent lack of any sort of accent. You must have been either from around this area, or had spent some considerable time here.
I can sometimes tell the region an operator comes from purely from their accent when speaking English, as I am sure some French, Dutch, or Spanish stations stations would be able to do when I attempt to speak those languages on the air.
Your English was so “normal” to me, that I could not find anything that may have hinted you were not from North West England.
I’m sorry to hear that it rained, but as you say, we are used to it around here. HI!
The weather here today has been very mild for the time of year, a cold night with some ground frost early on,followed by sunshine all morning, overcast in the afternoon & evening, currently 5C, overcast,very little wind. Very good for a Saturday after a wet & windy week
If the BBC got it right on Friday, tomorrow should be even better!
I hope to work you again soon.
