93.999674v , lots of volume adjustments and occasional dead air
i'm listening in 60k b/w b/c saddleworth splatter , i suspect that when they've got it set up it will be very distorted in 60k
its nasty and trebly with weak bass like Touch FM & High Peak

Been listening in the car around Lichfield whilst doing the school run... both sigs are stronger on the north and central part of the city (my QTH is in the far SE). RDS idents are different for each TX; CCR 94 and CCR 89.6

got 89.6 now they went to blank carrier, i think one tx is feeding the other, same drift pattern

here are i/q recordings with carriers , so people don't dismiss it as local qrm- yes its that messy

94 seems to get out better

94.0 TX is in the middle of Cannock on the Civic Centre buildings so quite high up... dunno where the Rugeley TX is but much of the town is in a dip.
The blank carriers were there at 6.30am when I first got up.

2 more channels gone at Middleton top :-(

89.6 + 94.0 are both excellent signals

Goodbye RDL 89.6, les platons and mi amigo 94.0!
