That's about it now. 89.6 is now out due to CCR. Although if you come on 87.6-.9 you have to expect to be took off if an RSL is granted.

I dont think there is a completely clear frequency across the whole region any more. I think 89.6 used to be the best bet but now with CCR Rugeley way that's out too.

This was discussed on this topic viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1158&start=50 although this was 6 years ago so a lot of the frequencies mentioned are no longer clear.

97.5 got out shit in this direction when Sting used it. Other direction you have Free Hereford on .6
103.4 only .2 away from Ambur who have been granted an immiment coverage increase
106.4 no good Black country side due to Sunshine on .2 and Signal Shrewsbury on .5
107.3 no good Black country side due to signal kiddi on .2 and signal Telford on .4

All possibly passable on low power but any decent signal will hit issues imo

Bait. Nothing lasts long on 97.5, and Free Radio from Ridge Hill is a good signal in the Black Country on 97.6

97.5 also in use in Nottingham for a community station so potentially trouble if you get out too far north. I guess there's a reason Sting gave up that frequency in Birmingham!
