I remember the signal well that day,I was miles away but listening on a car radio.County were using the former sounds alternative 80 watt tx,and one of the Blades House sites that we used to use regulary.

Hi Keith,

I don't think the FM was coming from Blades House when I made these recordings on 16th March, because it would have been very weak at my location if that was the case.

When it was coming from West Brom over Easter '86, it was a very very poor signal with me on FM. The MW was strong though, at least during daylight hours.

Was and still am sad to hear the bad news of last week...

Some County recordings were added to the site earlier this year, and another 2 have been added today.
