January Doldrums-anyone left on?

Post by Tim2 »

its been a long time since i had this few signals from the Midlands
I only get the big guns or the ones on clear channels but even with that in mind its dead.

got a very weak 94.2 having a 3 way with radio 4 & R Cymru
possible 92.0 peaking round radio 3 @ 21:00

95.1, 106.3 & 92.4 are a no go here


odd lack of RSLs too

There are a few, just had a quick look and this is about it!

92.0 Hot FM
94.2 Skyline
95.1 Kriss (Audio is that bad again don't know why they are bothering to be honest)
97.5 Sting
99.4 Irie

Not exactly a dial full of activity at the moment! :sad

lol, seems longer than that! When I'm in the area I have you on a lot, but because I've been out of the area a lot over the last few weeks I just noticed you had gone rather than when you had actually gone. :oops:

Hope your going to be back soon? :)

Yeah your right, it does seem to be going through a bit of a bad patch around here.

Gotta be honest with the exception of Deep I don't really bother listening to the local pirates anymore. Got unlimited data on my phone and I tend to listen to the London pirates; Shine, Point Blank,Vision, Kool or Fresh Radio UK via their streams in the car now.

To be fair, the London pirates are sounding pretty good these days, I would love to hear a pirate in the West Midlands with the same sound as some of the London stations, but it don't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon :(
