FM Atmospherics

Post by geegosh » Tue Jun 20, 2017 10:41 am

Anyone else receiving a lot of foreign stations on FM at the moment? Just did a scan on the car radio in Suffolk and the band is quite literally full of foreign stations, mainly Portuguese or Spanish, some eastern European stations too. They're spurring all over the place, I'm guessing the high-pressure might be at play with the atmospherics??

I'm listening to my old station in the Netherlands at the moment here in deepest East Anglia. The whole geography of Band II has changed over the last couple of days, with distant stations often being much stronger than local stuff. The endless BBC sites and the "Hearts", "Capitals" and "Golds" aren't all over the band. It's actually pleasantly diverse - perhaps the way Band II should be!

103.1 is an Asian station and i hope we never hear bounce again tbh.. Not heard it for ages now..I'm not getting any foreign stuff at all! Goodness knows why. But fresh keep fading every few minutes and i get BBC Newcastle edging in for half a minute.. 102.3 with dance music, haven't had a listen for that yet will do in a min, but could be redroad fm from Kiveton in the corner of south East Sheffield nearer Rotherham to be honest. They're on 102.4 and a legal community radio station, just incase you're not familiar with it...
