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

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: 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.

Re: Tropo - Ireland

The only Ireland I received was Newstalk 107.4 at 1am this morning. Various TX's listed. Could not receive it on the main setup but it heard indoors on portable radio. I wonder if its a Vertical polarization TX ?
