Wtf. I was only asking where you took your last band scan from as that erea must be in a dip. I wasnt putting you down. I think you need to get your leg over or something
Apologies mate. However I have been called mentally retarded, a liar and a racist on here recently because people didnt agree with my logs/believe me. So that was the reason for me being prickly.

All my logs are from the same location. I have a massive fuck off hill fucking up my reception from the Birmingham area. (incidentally I also cannot get Freeview and my DAB is shite. I also have a very unsensitive/insensitive (not sure which one is right) FM receiver. Its great for Internet radio but shite on FM. I did have a really sensitive FM receiver a year or so again, but i got rid because 1. it absoulutely ATE batteries (8xD Type) and 2. I don't use FM other than to do these logs.
I appreciate your reports anyway :D Keep going, ignore any idiots.

Not that much on this weekend in Birmingham:

90.2 - City Beats (RDS disappeared?)
92.0 - Hot (Stereo, RDS)
92.4 - Vibez (too faint to listen to, though)
94.4 - Sting (Stereo, RDS)
95.1 - Kriss - poor audio, doesn't sound like they are using any compression and muffled too, probably pre-emphasis problem. Why not use Stereotool?!
101.2 - Genesis (Stereo, RDS)

At my house (Bridgnorth) in a Denon DM38 with a dipole in the loft, I can tell it's there but it's no way listenable. (City Beats).

I'll have a go in the car later for you.

You might need Google Maps for this. Just done Bridgnorth to Wolverhampton Station on the A454.

Signal is 50/50 from Worfield (Evans Halshaw Vauxhall Garage) as far along as a pub called The Fox At Shipley, it's then reasonable all the way in to the Banks Brewery. It's good (but not solid) on the Ring Road.

I've no idea where you guys are, but given that when it's good it's really good, and when it drops out it's nil signal rather than weak - I'm thinking decent power from a low site.
