It's the rock 926 so it's sprogging or they have moved

Are you sure it's not someone's car audio modulator? I get tonns of these when trying to tune the low freqs, most people seem to leave them on the default 87.5.

If it was then it would come and go and then disappear completely and I'm sure famefm would be able to tell that it was that.
It's about time something used 87.5 after it's been clear for such a long time.

Definitely the rock 926 I don't know if it's a move or accidentally sprogging?

Their website title has 87.5 & 92.6 fm in the title.
Guess they are running two rigs.

Probably prepared to move I never thought they would use 875 I think it's a bit crowded on the 92s on fm these days

Something else has recently popped up on 92.7 ....but The Rock has been established on 92.6 for a while now so it sounds like they are just using the 2 frequencies, and as you know the high powered Guildford BBC relay on 92.5 will badly restrict their coverage towards the west, so maybe they decided to add another relay for 87.5 to refresh the parts that the other cannot reach.

Very weak this station, probably the poorest Ive ever heard a station on 875.

926 is also there but completely unlistenable, even on a sony xdr!

Nothing recently has seemed to last on 87.5, there was a signal with white noise on there a month or so ago but was off a day or so later before it even came on...
