Re: Going to Skegness in may are there any good FM stations dx places?

As a regular visit to Mablethorpe, I like Huttoft Car terrace where you can park facing the sea. There is always Dutch 93.9 & 87.9 to be received there under any conditions. Try for West on 94.3 you get Wenvoe 104.3 Llangollen. Just slightly inland in Huttoft Village France seems easier on 105.2 and...

Re: French takeover in Cheshire 28/12/19

Conditions have improved from the south tonight. Rowridge blasting in on my little pocket radio inside the house I have an unidentified French station on 93.7 over Holme Moss. Not hearing Radio Wales LLangollen 91.1 but Radio 3 instead, this must be Les Platons, Jersey doubt it could be the low powe...

Re: French takeover in Cheshire 28/12/19

Drove to a local high spot west of Burton on Trent. Lots of Dutch and French. Dutch 87.6 and 87.9, 95.7 and 91.8. France Musique 89.4 also Radio Freedom playing oldies and rock on 87.6 no idea where this is coming from. Maybe a UK pirate. Rowridge and North Hessary Torr very strong.

Re: Touch FM, Rugby FM & Banbury Sound all fall to Capital

More duplicates how depressing. Will there be any music choice on FM soon? They still seem to be playing local adverts though. 102.4 Tx is at the back of my house on a water tower. Its just a relay of 101.6 so when Wenvoe Classic FM 101.7 is strong the 102.4 Burton On Trent relay gets knocked off th...

Re: Sutton Coldfield off frequency (now fixed)

All very interesting. Sutton Coldfield went off air about 4 months ago for 5 minutes By the time I got to my DX setup, it was back on! I used to DX living a mile from Sutton Coldfield TX in the 1970s and in those days it used to close down at night allowing easy reception on my Rotel rt324 tuner of ...

I took my Roberts pocket DAB radio up the 115 steps to the top of Scotland’s most southerly Lighthouse. With the height of the cliffs as well I am told that you are 315 feet above sea lev...

Re: Tropo being received in Kent this evening

Noticed the local Kent TV has gone off on Freeview channel 7. I think all local TV stations share the same frequently so must be interference.
