Was very little signal in Essex in the car on the a12 last week 100.0 worked so much better.
101.0 also got out very good until Classic FM 100.9 started coming in.

Nice.
on the coast you definitely get these enhancements that don’t register on the tropo maps or reach inland

You should be very pleased with that thing being so weak. It's a channel blocker here and usually requires a big signal to get over it. Enhancements often make it bigger than a big thing.

there is not any signal hear I just get another station on 106.6 which I think is Colchester way.

I noticed this when I had a drive to Skegness last week. Kiss used to dominate 106.4, but this time it was weak and Capital could be heard at times. 106.1 was certainly better.

could it have been anything to do with the recent lightning storms we have had though most are made to take it?
