Kennet Radio 106.7, new community station for Newbury & Thatcham

Started on March 10th, with local news and 'music from the last 6 decades':

It's fully quieting mono here beaming north. I presume the tx site is the same as The Breeze on 105.6 from Newbury.

We went to Newbury today and I had it on the car radio afterwards driving on the A339 from Newbury to Basingstoke. The signal had pretty much gone within 4 or 5 miles of Basingstoke. Reception to the north will probably be limited by Jack FM Oxford 106.8, and south by Sam FM on 106.6 from Winchester.
Good DX.
