89.6

Post by pirateaddict » Fri Jun 23, 2017 2:09 am

Been getting a blank carrier on 89.6 for about two weeks . Tuning light is on.. This is usually passion from Huddersfield.. Just wondered if anyone else up here in south Yorkshire is hearing it or whether it's local interference from some electronic device near me.. Do PlayStation 4's give off rf around that dial? It's me sons not mine..

have noticed a blank carrier on there now again, theres also been stuff going on other frequencies foreign stations coming throught 1 of those was just transmitting silence. All types of things put out interference, switched mode power supplys are bad, their more light weight than transformers so have taken over, they just put interference across all frequencies, theres 1 in our led lighting in the bathroom. I guess anything with a computer in could put out carriers, think its to do with the clocks/processor speed usually have a frequency, used to be measured in megahertz but now gigahertz, some people use raspberry pi as a crude transmitter because of the frequencies they generate.
