Re: Citybeats fm is back

Had a try for this sitting on Stourbridge Junction station car park - no good. Kriss and Distinct with good signals, Hot was sort of warm.

Re: Bandscan

Dave - i am technical, what i meant to say stereo tool does RDS but doesnt stop a transmitter from spronging which is cause for disaster for ofcom to come get the transmitter. Weren't you the guy using a Spectrum Analyser and a Scrambler to make an untraceable link? Okay - you're techier than I am....

Re: Citybeats fm is back

Big signal on Wolverhampton station car park.
No good in Bridgnorth at home with the aerial in the roof (and I am about as high up as you can get)
heard you with a decent signal in the car out near Ditton Priors.

Re: Bandscan

Mike - I knew you'd know - that was for Mr Bandit, who doesnt appear to be very technical. I think Midlands Rush used Stereo Tool... We had a play (for Powerhouse) in 2006 - this wasn't bad going audiowise for a pirate at the time - https://www.mixcloud.com/davecartwright/powerhouse-phr-dudley-trg-8...

You'll tear through it in an afternoon mate. The names and stations might not be familiar but the circumstances will be :)

Re: Bandscan

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

I can't see how it would make a transmitter sprog or not - but it would control over deviation (or make it worse)

Pleasure...

Without giving the game away - the section with the DTI enforcement fella confirmed a few theories a few of here already had.... :-)

Re: Vybez FM

Sorry - saw this a bit late.

Wouldn't have heard it anyway, been well out of the area today :-)

Good luck with it though
