Re: MAR back on 105 - with RDS

No sign of MAR on 105.0 here at the moment - 87.5 is good as usual

Re: Merseyside Stations

Ah - I heard 102.2 Saturday morning with good signal, free radio jingles and non stop music. Gone when checked in the afternoon.

I’m running Win7/Chrome and it’s had the gap between the K and the Y since the recent upgrade.

Re: Ofcom’s new “covid licence” category

I listened to Bayside for an hour on Sunday afternoon when it peaked up in the tropo lift here. It was playing music with a pretty amateur sounding DJ. No mention of C19 as far as I can recall.

Re: What bandwidth is needed for RDS - revisited?

The RDS subcarrier is at 57 kHz. If you have a larger bandwidth then you also have more noise I would have thought.

Re: Ofcom’s new “covid licence” category

Cheadle is effectively in South Manchester and is 65 km away from the low power Heart transmitter over the border in Wrexham. Nobody in South Manchester would be listening to Heart on 88 Mhz.

Re: New South American Beverage

Interesting theory and probably not without a grain of truth - could also be that power levels have been reduced as energy costs got more expensive over the years. In addition there are far more UK stations on air than 30 years ago - so more blocking and splatter. And has anyone noticed the insane l...

Lovely clear reception with none of the usual urban noise crud. The electric fence clicking hardly impacts at all.

Re: Where's the SpE?

Correct - "Frenchified" Vikings who spoke old French rather than Norse but who also fought against the Franks (who evolved into the French). One thing I have found out in the last year which fascinates me. The Germanic Anglo-Saxons gave their name AND language to England. The Germanic Franks gave th...

Re: Where's the SpE?

I'm currently reading a lot of history books about the period between the end of Roman rule in the British isles and the Norman invasion. It can get confusing - e.g. the British who were Welsh fought the English who were German... Lincolnshire is very interesting as it once was an independent Anglo-...

Re: FM DX recordings

I don't have a Twitter account either but the video plays on my PC Chrome browser. To be honest it could be anything but from the way it fades I would guess some form of scatter - aircraft or meteor. If it is the same station every morning at same time have you checked for a regular aircraft? The Ai...
