Pick these up from heathrow this morning m25 to a3 upto ripley through the surrey hills lost them in Ewhurst but could still get them in cranleigh which is quit rare to pick up anything there. playing hard-core test transmittion seems like the old 87.5 big boy signal is back covering a nice area

I remember seeing a post on Radionecks asking for an engineer to help out for a big signal covering Bucks a few months ago... I wonder

Its tech on 87.5, nether are the original Raw from back in the day. Uk Raw used to get Tech to put together PCS equipment.
They fell out, hence Raw Innocence 87.5. I could pick up 87.5 earlier, but now its gone? It seemed to have loads of humm, and spurious emissions up to 87.65. Poor equipment.

Sorry people have you not noticed the terrible broadcast output of this equipment used on Raw innocence? Ofcom will be out. Luckily I don't have to listen to it, cos it's now dropped so much in power, it's a dying Transistor!

Live shows on now. Tuned in via a web sdr in Farnborough, not bad reception once you play with rf gain & bandwidth. Will try via proper rf when on my travels. :smoke

Sounds best on 80KHz bandwidth with RF gain set around 60 to 80%

What ever they are using, bloody massive signal into Oxfodshire with RDS.
Was sounding quite constant in Bicester earlier this evening too.
Also was in High Wycombe on Monday evening a absolute solid signal as I went passed shall we say UK's Finest's Kind of old location.
Big up guys, great job !!!
