Nice log there. I was wondering if your BBC Radio 2 on 89.6 and Radio 3 on 91.1 were Les Platons as they are regulars here, particularly 91.1. Rennes on 103.1 must have been pretty strong to squeeze past Capital on 103.2! Also look out for Island FM from Guernsey (Les Touillets) on 104.7 as I was hearing them this morning, also BBC Guernsey on 93.2 (has to get past Radio 4 here).
Good DX.

I reckon you're right, given the signal I get from R1 and R4. Never had a hint of Radio Jersey on 88.8 though from Les P- Radio 2 Crystal Palace always wins that one. Channel 103 is also a non starter, as BBC Wiltshire is a powerhouse here on 103.5, and it'd take a fair amount of signal to overcome BBC Solent on 103.8. Will listen out for Island FM

The aerial is set slightly west of south in order to null out Rowridge/Chillerton a bit (though the former is still off the top of the signal meter) so things like Rennes on 103.1 can sneak in.
