Re: Bandscan

Stereotool is a bit of software that does auto processing, and can generate RDS and Stereo.

Re: Bandscan

Re: birmingham blocks

The quality of DAB is so piss poor in comparison to FM though, with some stations at 56kbps or other ridiculously low bitrates. I can't believe we have invested so much in this country into something that runs on MP2 technology, that's somehow supposed to be the future of radio! I know that FM is de...

Re: Hot

Don't know much about RDS but when I tune to Hot the TP flag lights up on my tuner.

Re: Bandscan

Sting back on this evening here in Stereo with scrolling RDS, good signal where I am.

Re: UK RADIO - 30 YEARS ON 1978 - 2008

Thanks for the uploads, they will keep me busy! I still have a soft spot for UK radio - I lived in Bilston in the mid-late 90s and the postcode of the address they gave out was only a digit away from mine. I have a vague memory of phoning into the bogus jobseeker's show once and winning a CD single ...
