87.7 Liverpool

Post by Matt » Tue Aug 27, 2019 3:19 pm

Yesterday afternoon around 4pm I was driving around South Liverpool, having a scan to see what surprises the bank holiday might have in store.

As well as a couple of the usual stations, there was non stop music on 87.7 which I would describe, ignorantly, as oldies. I'd be surprised if it was a car transmitter as it covered a good few miles and faded slightly in dips and under a bridge. I tuned in later at home and there was nothing there. Anyone got any clues?!

It might have been a Radio Caroline relay as they're quite popular up that way.
Pirate Radio's not a problem, it's a solution

Good idea, but I'm not sure about that. It was just music with gaps inbetween. No jingles, no presenter and no real flow to the music.

I've got the impression over the years that there are a few transmitters in lofts and cupboards around here and that, occasionally, one of their owners gets all enthusiastic and fires one up.

This may be just one of those.
