All other stations pretty much normal reception

Went out to Barr Beacon on the bike this afternoon and had a scan around the dial using my phone (Galaxy S3 with the 'spirit FM' app). Nice view from up there! Don't bother wasting 20p on the telescope at the car park though...

89.7 - BCMR - 15db
90.0 - Silk City - 30db (RDS SILKCITY)
92.0 - Hot 92 - 30db
92.2 Hot 92 - 30db (RDS HOT 92.2)
95.1 Kriss - 35db
97.5 Sting - 35db
99.4 Irie UK - 45db (RDS IRIE UK)
99.7 Distinct - 45db (RDS DISTINCT)

Think Noize disappeared again sometime yesterday. Irie definitely using RDS - radio text is the web address irieuk.net. Audio back to normal now.

Presume the Hot 92.2 relay is from over black country/wolves way.
