Surprised you can pick up pulse down there, last time I saw their aerial (at start of this month), the mast was falling over with the elements pointing up to the sky lol Maybe they fixed it.

Also OnTop have had to move and are now very weak in their usual area.. I would imagine you did the scan before the change..

There was a tropo last week which was probably helping with the reception of iFM. Lots of French stations heard here as well as a couple of extra pirates one morning.

I caught that one a few weeks back, it was there for a while but yeah I've not heard it since the beginning of April.

Someone told me they were now getting iFM on 91.1 after I stopped hearing it here at home, but I haven't heard anything. The FM band appeared to be the same with weak stations elsewhere so not too sure if it was a lift but it might've been.
Not heard iFM since last week, signal was pretty good and coming in almost crystal with only a little hiss.
....My pal around Bexhill, Hastings area said he could hear it coming in very well driving around that area. I can only guess they had it up on a good high spot and 91.6 is pretty clear down here. :tup

Origin 95.1 back on again and although it's still weak, it's noticeably stronger than it's been.
