Re: 101.6 Centre FM is back! (Burton/Tamworth)

Think Touch FM is an automated jukebox with adverts most of the time. This morning here in Burton on Trent 101.6 was being blotted out by 101.7 Wenvoe Classic FM, however it relay for Burton on 102.4 is showing no RDS at the moment. The relay is a few yards away from my house on Burton Water Tower. ...

Re: Pirates heard at Middleton top 1/04/18

Thanks for the station ID, Just tried and Stingdem 94.4 is making it out to Burton on Trent, Radio 4 Wenvoe 94.3 fades up and blots it out every so often. I would certainly like to hear Ireland, Mullaghanish on 94.4 instead! 95.1 Kris FM makes it 30 miles out to Burton also. Not a pirate but 89.1 Bi...

And your local, John seems really strong here today. Radio Lincolnshire from Belmont 94.9. Considering Radio Coventry & Warwickshire is my local on 94.8 its doing well blotting that out. Short range tropo I guess.

Re: Pirates heard at Middleton top 1/04/18

Are you sure 94.4 is a London pirate? Or are you hearing something different to me. I have been hearing a pirate on 94.4 for a couple of months in Burton on Trent, also its very strong in Birmingham so I suggest a Birmingham Pirate. I will see if I can ID it next time I am in Brum.

Re: Cannock Chase Radio

Test signals of on both frequencies booming in here in Burton on Trent. Well that’s the End of Irish Reception for me sadly.
89.6 has now gone off but 94.0 is displaying RDS CCR 94F AND 89.6 CCR 89F
Guess they are adjusting the transmitters as sometimes the reception goes noisy.

Re: Radio Maria in every town and city across the UK?

Well I cant wait to have RTE on DAB in the UK. I listen to RTE a lot online and I have no connection with Ireland This is because I am fed up of hearing what seems like the same old 20 songs on most UK music radio stations. However I think RTE is only going on the low power trial multiplexes as far ...

Its now a very crowded band in the midlands with community stations and pirates filling the gaps to contend with.
