Hi All, this seems like a good place to say hello.
I'm in South Cheshire and used to get a great signal from Kriss on 95.3, why did they move ? 95.1 is impossible here due to radio manchester, i can sometimes tell they're on but i can't listen to the show like i used to in the 95.3 days.

i can get Skyline 94.2, hot 92 and deep 89.6 here, used to get sting when they were on 107.5

can barely detect frontline due to dee 106.3
used to get midlands u-ground on 107.

if anyones interested i've done bandscans from
various locations and put them up on http://www.fmlist.org
i always try to include the pirates.
(please feel free to add your own bandscans, we don't have much from this area)

some that aren't up there but might be of interest:
at the Pistyll waterfall in Llanrheadr-ym-mochnant, powys, apart from the local transmitter the only stations audible are west midlands pirates!
Kriss 95.1 & Midlands u-ground 107 were particularly good.

Aberdyfi, West Wales about 10 years ago, a few of the west mids stations were getting through including sting 107.5

all the best

Bit of an interference issue with BBC WM :D Ironic considering why you had trouble getting them after the move but that was the reason!

Hi again Tim,When Kriss where on 95.3 in the past interference in some areas was bieng caused to BBC WM.
I know some site readers will refuse to believe this,but it is true..

Hi Keith,
i guess the problem was when the tx was left on relaying white noise which would spread up to 95.6 when the link was off.
i wonder if 95.2 would be a workable compromise?

No, the problem was bad rigs.
One day that will always stick in my memory is the day that Kriss 95.3 wiped out Beacon on 97.2. Heard on 97.4 in some parts of Dudley.
Most stations have had a bad rig, but some a lot more than others.

thanks for the info,
i remember one day in 1991 ,my local legal Signal 96.4 went loco and put spurs out across the band,
(i remember 95.9 very clearly)
i always wondered if they got their wrist slapped
