Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

"BBC Radio Wales broadcasts high quality, original, challenging and innovative programmes for a Welsh audience, championing Welsh culture, music and arts." So, as I understand, Radio 3, the original cultural station, does not?? Just because it is being produced in LDN or what !? audience research i...

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

If Wales doesn't massively object and make a fuss , I think it will be It would be a shame if this happens everywhere in my opinion as it will make FM even blander.

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

i made an IQ recording beaming west in vertical and looped the audio gap at the end of the message then tuned the file in usb to hear any weak relays carrying the same message, very disappointing results only Long Mountain 91.8, llandinam 92.3 & 90.6 Penmaen Rhos - that last one is so weak i'm not s...

Re: Llangollen 91.1 changing from Radio 3 to Radio Wales

Just heard the announcement on 90.6 Presumably Carmel so really confirms that all R3 TXs in Wales are going over to Radio Wales. Andy Andy I suggest you are hearing Penmaen Rhos on 90.6 as Carmel will not be switching since they already have a Radio Wales relay on 95.1. a lot of people are going to...
