1152 was/is allocated to several original ILRs - London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Plymouth and Glasgow and they built them with directional aerials to prevent interference to each other. So it might not have been that bad on Jersey depending of course on which directions they pointed!
Yes, though Plymouth was the only 1152 site that had an omni directional transmitter, in fact it was (is still) at the BBC Plumer Barracks site, that has been there since the 50s. Dartmoor contains the signals very well, and nothing much leaks 'up country' from there. You can barely hear it 35 miles away in Exeter.
BRMB from Birmingham however might have been receivable, that has a S/SW beam (again all coming good for three mins at the top of each hour !
) My vote for best signal though still goes with Radio Victory Portsmouth on 1170
