Radio in Walsall automatically retuning to Ambur Fm after a few seconds in Walsall. Presume its something to do with RDS PI codes or summat...

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

Their scrolling RDS has gone a bit weird too, it says the station name then a load of garbage afterwards.

You probably know more than me - I know bugger all lol

Just going by this on Wiki...

"Any transmission that carries the same PI code is considered by receivers to be the same and can be switched to as an alternative frequency to improve reception (even if it is not specifically listed as an alternative frequency)."

and guessing that is what is happening due to Ambur being (obviously) the stronger reception around Walsall.
