mediumwave.info features also 3rd April. however, in the source mentioned over there, no date has been postponed yet

https://radiotoday.co.uk/2018/03/norths ... o-service/

think it`s a good step as UK digitalisation in mobile radio is pretty far and DAB market is fast growing there
good news for those who want to listen to Seminoye Radio ELI at night with beautiful russian pop music

sad news for those who listen to oldies. this transmitter gives one of the best signals from Bauer Radio UK in Germany and alongside with 1107 kHz MFR 2 is one of the most remote low powe AM channels from Scotland to be picked up from Central Europe across the canal.


btw to be more correctly it is NORTHSOUND TWO . :ugeek:

Northsound 2 is receivable in the daytime here. I often use the signal as a guide when setting up the flag antennna against BBC Cambridgeshire on 1035, which is naturally a stronger signal. My goal, after adjusting the flag's resistor, is to ensure that BBC Cambridgshire is much weaker than Northsound 2.

1107 mfr covered by talk sport relay?
