Re: Cannock Chase Radio

Cannock Chase Radio 89.8 is finally on air. So thats another frequency lost for Dx. I wonder if there is any interference in the peak district to those Radio 2 listeners who use Bakewell transmitter on 89.8.

Re: Cannock Chase Radio

The new TX on 89.8 does not seem to be on air yet. They are still advertising it though as "Comung Soon on 89.8" on their jingles though. There is also mention of "Fastest gowing radio station" soon coming to Burntwood, Lichfield & Burton.

Re: sweden tropo now

I would say Ireland was the strongest signals ever yesterday. I was listening to RTE1 from Clermont Carn 87.8 on the car radio whilst driving around town as if it was a local. I had the Traffic switched on for the car radio and Dublin traffic reports poped up. The conditions seemed to shift north as...

Re: sweden tropo now

Thats some amazing distances. Nothing to the east from here, the best I can do is Tacolneston. I am so badly positioned for the east. But I have strong Irish signals this morning..

Re: Tropo within UK

Mainly a welsh takeover here. 93.7 Havefordwest, Radio Cymru over the top of Radio 4 Holme Moss. Lots of hiss as the two fight it out. Also a fair signal from the 50 watt Long Mountain 91.8 Radio Wales. Also good signals from Carmel, Llandrindndod Wells and Bleanplwyf. Nothing from Ireland.

No Netherlands signals getting to the Midlands this morning. Sadly the best I can do is Belmont 94.9 Radio Lincolnshire.

Re: Cannock Chase Radio

They have just announced on air they are getting an additional frequency of 89.8 towards the end of August. The transmiiter is to cover Lichfield and Burntwood. They are packing them in. I wonder if it could cause some problems with the Radio 2 Relay at Bakewell if you are high up in the south peak ...

It was transmitting Absokute classic Rock when it closed. Also Sedgley 990khz has closed. Sedley was...

Re: Es 29/05/2020

Still going here but cant resolve the signals many are distorted. Only RDS was 91.3 France Inter at 18:30. Iceland finally did RDS on the car radio earlier as RONDO at 14:55 so I assume it was RÚV Rondó Reykjavik, playing classical music.

Re: Es 29/05/2020

I am getting Nordick language stations on 87.7 no idea which country as not strong enough for RDS. Or could it be tropo over the north sea? Hepburn tropo forcast looks good over the North sea. Need station ID.

Re: Es > Azores, Portugal and Spain

North Africa was around at 9am this morning at the bottom of the band. Heard the wonderful Lebanese Singer Faruz being played. North Africa back at the the moment 87.5 to 88.0 but not strong enough for RDS.

Re: New Pirate Birmingham or Midlands 87.5

There are usually lots of Ramadan stations this time of the year on 87.7 to 87.9, could it of been taken off quickly because of potential
interference to low power Ramadan RSL stations? There will be one in Wolverhampton on 87.9FM is on air from April 24th.

New Pirate Birmingham or Midlands 87.5

I've just come across 'FUSION' on 87.5MHz, playing dreadful dance/house so called music with RDS radio text saying 'Bienvenue Sur Radio Villedomer 87.5 MHz 24/24 FM Musique Rock'. Anyone one else hearing this?

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...

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...
