Evening from the roof of Wolverhampton train station car park, where my car is demisting very fucking slowly

87.7 Stereo - something in a language I don't understand
89.7 Stereo RDS - BCMR - Good Signal
92.0 - hummy dead carrier, guess hot - Good Signal
94.2 - Skyline - Good Signal, overmodding
94.4 - Sting - Good Signal, overmodding
(above two really not helping each other!)
95.1 - Kriss - Good Signal, dodgy audio
99.2 - Trance Tunes, Mono, low audio, fair signal
99.7 - Distinct - good signal, good audio
108.0 - dead carrier, I think. It's very weak tho

Time to go home :-)

89.7 BCMR, (Stereo, RDS - "BCMR") - Strength:9*
94.2 Assume Skyline - Strength:1*
94.4 Assume Sting - Strength:1*
95.1 Kriss - Strength:7*
99.7 Distinct - Strength:5*


* - All strength ratings are purely my opinion on a scale of 1-10. 1 being shit (unlistenable/right in back of set) and 10 being bostin! (locking on, stereo, rds if broadcast) This is purely a guide as to how reception at my location is and bears no connection/sync with db or any radio "signal bars". Rating is not to be taken as any endorsement or opinion on the output of the station concerned, purely the signal strength. Absence of any station in my listings is purely due to not being receivable at the time of this bandscan and is not to be taken as any sort of slight or criticism/vendetta/opinion on the station concerned. Please be assured I am unbiased, as I do not listen/like the music on anything currently on FM. I purely scan the dial, list them, and go back to internet radio. Should you have any arguments/issues with any of my ratings, please note, i honestly dont give a fuck

92.0 Hot - Strength:1*
94.2 Skyline - Strength:1*
94.4 Sting - Strength:1*
95.1 Kriss - Strength:5*
99.7 Distinct - Strength:5*

Note - BCMR doesnt normally appear until late afternoon.

Please note all station names are educated guesses from the station that has previously used that frequency and the style of music being played. I am not listening long enough to ID as I do not listen/like the music on anything currently on FM and quite frankly I have better things to do.
