I can pick up Hot 92 in Birmingham at the moment on 102.4 as well as the usual frequency. Not sure if this is a deliberate attempt to use two frequencies or a technical issue with their equipment? Seems a bit of a daft freq to use so close to 102.2!

Plus Black Country Radio on 102.5 depending how far it's getting out...

Walsall scan

90.2 Carrier - Strength:3*
94.4 Sting - Strength:3*
95.1 Kriss - Strength:7*
99.7 Distinct - Strength:7*


* - 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 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. 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

Distinct seemed well down on normal strength in Wolverhampton City Centre this afternoon. 90s trance mix. Was it even distinct?

Also, 94.2 Skyline and 95.1 Kriss

Very weak carrier on 89.7 this morning. From timing and reception would say extremely unlikely it was BCMR
