great signal on 87.5 today, listenable at least as far east as Grin Low Country Park Buxton

so basically it made it over the "hump" and people in the East of England should give it a try

ps: thanks for using 87.5 instead of 87.7, i'd never have managed Denmark & Holland if 87.7 was in use

101.4 1 or maybe 2 pirates on this channel today

the music was so schizoid i'm fairly sure It wasn't the same

there was that funky house unid, very cool music indeed, then around 1130-ish I heard oldies but audio not low enough to be veronica,
after that we climbed higher in the peaks and Ireland then later Smooth dominated the channel totally

you're obviously getting over the pennines

"I was receiving a station on 87.5FM Sunday morning in Huddersfield. No RDS or IDs - trance music with 'listener messages' every few songs. I assume this was the same station, transmitting from the East side of Manchester?

BTW Hardwell is a Dutch DJ/Producer

also Alan Gale in Rochdale reports hearing you

yes, that same station, 87.5, was rx in blackpool .
very strong signal here.
was some good tunes being played, and very good audio.

no rds on the vertical, and no rds on the beam, which is pointing e/se, as can not rotate it at minute to get a better bearing on it.

mark.

Caroline Boston 87.9 have an improved signal here today. Almost fully quieting mono on the horizontal 9.2 slightly off-beam. I think this is the first time have heard them mid-week too.

The trance outlet on 87.5 was booming around Chester and audible until south of the Stoke M6 exit yesterday and today.

I have that here Tim been on most afternoons and it is actually on 87.75 toady their audio was reasonable unlike a few days ago when it was so distorted it was hard to tell what was playing.
