Thanks for participating: Ari (getting well into my mind nowadays!); Rossim; Jazzy; Rambler; Mary6 (great going); and Andyc.

no go (in Chambers) has a seperate entry to no-go.

I'll publish 2 to 5 and leave No.1 till after I've fed my face.

2. subtractive anagram (out & as it may be) of “disagreeable – breed” = ALGESIA = sensitivity to pain (Chambers)

3. It’s in there! (being restricted by). NO GO = not possible (Chambers)

4. Anagram (riot) of “one-liners are a” = SIERRA LEONEAN = W. African

5. to write = pen; to press = drag on ship (loosely = not strictly/inexactly); (perhaps? = it could also be into the army) = PENDRAGONSHIP = office of an ancient British chief. see under “pendragon” in Chambers)

Hi also to Emrach.

I thought No. 5 would be the "stickler". Turned out to be No.1.

Here goes:-

1. form of broadcasting = digital audio broadcasting (contracted) = DAB + it; harmful = evil; yielding:- d(evil)abit = DEVIL A BIT = not one (Chambers)

Again, Happy Easter. See you in a fortnight, hopefully. Thanks for the good wishes. J

Thanks also Jazzy (x)

Devil a bit. Never heard of that one Jolan but it's there in Chambers, I just checked. Very clever. Thanks again and enjoy your break from 5 @ 5.

Tried everything I could think of with A BIT, and also tried to use digital. Never heard the expression. You're a tricky one, Jolan. Trust it's a Britishism; never would have gotten it!

Thanks Andy. I try to pick multiple-worded solutions to obviate "thesaurus look-ups" and that's how I stumble on these ones. Ciao!
