The band's going to be full of wailing for the next month. It's F***ing Ramadan. OFCOM give the ethnically challenged loads of RSLs every year. Given what happened last Monday, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these were jammed and had rigs "borrowed".

Where can I get me some Isis rigs lol. Probably the only station(s) I'd eat. So pathetic how we aren't "aloud" to broadcast but these cunts come over and just get given licences to broadcast there extremism.

You are ALLOWED, just like anyone else in the country, to apply for an RSL as they have. But please do us all a favour and don't put knuckledrag FM on air.

It's bankholiday so they may get a spot of interference this weekend if the big transmitter of radio Brittania pops up! It is a Ramadan station. Was just stunned coz I've never heard an rsl on 99.9 over this way, thought they were given 87.7-87.9 round here.. Oh well..I used to listen to club Asia sometimes but not a Ramadan station..pfft.

most muslims are ok just minority who go out and commit astrocites, don’t like to admit problaly is simliar margilzaion leads to high school shootings, we should love the ones we hate! or find annoying lets not give these people and excuse

few 10w transmitters dosen’t mean anyones taking over, it would cool if that could be done ;) , important to understand they’ve paid to be there

think the 2 asian rsls on 87.7 & 87.9 have gone off air today, using them to test my gp aerial which i’ve edging higher up, hoping to get my aerial high enough that the auto seek tuning would lock on them on my car radio, think the other on 99.9 may of gone off air.

In my days in Yorkshire, we came from sites up near Halifax and Bradford. There were some spectacularly high sites up there. We never ran more than about 600W (about 2kW ERP - with a colinear aerial). My best achievement was to get a cassette tape of one of my programmes from a guy in Finland!

used to beable to hear the sheffield/leeds pirates up at sutton bank as clear as you could hear them in west yorkshire, always thought it was cool when you got up kirkstall abbey on the way to guiseley started hearing sheffield pirates even that seemed far away. dream had a transmitter up there, odd thing is when was up near otley i could hear the york transmitter much clearer, i’m never sure how their transmitter got out so far from there, sure york is at sea level.

as for ken reaching scotland think you might thinking of the am signal, guessing it could problaly be heard at sutton banks the signal is simliar to a sheffield pirate back in the day, i’m guessing there wouldn’t be much fm signal in the veil of york problaly lots of dead patches until you get to a hill.

interesting thread thought on sheffield forum, you can see lincoln cathedral from sheffield, the farest you can see killburn white horse, howardian hills so thats the limit
