West Yorks

Post by Uksoundz » Wed Jan 11, 2023 7:47 am

Haven’t been looking recently but is anyone still on in West Yorks? Specifically Leeds and Wakefield. Had a search round and the usual culprits aren’t to be found.

Anyone new around?

Fresh is on ssdab, I can hear the Leeds network with the aerial exstended here, don’t imagine it should audioable this way, I imagine you problably could get it better in Wakefield, places over there always have clearer line of sight into city. Theres about 6 stations on there, Juice is about the best one, it confuses me why its on such small network, would be better on a national network were it could compeat with other specialist stations, you don’t get that many that specilize in 00’s music. There is also dance asian, afew months ago did an rsl, they were annoucing they had won a licence, they were meaning the slot on dab. Even thought it was not pirate I found it quite interesting to listen to, with its mix of pop, bhagra type music, the signal only came in on a hill, we don’t seem to have pirates now they seem to given up finding listeners throught fm, they even left the bildsdale transmitter off over a year, don’t suppose anyone is listening. I don’t seem to hear anything on fm apart from greatest hits relays, community stations, alot with the strongest signals sound like local radio aren’t that interesting. I often tune to 104.5 every few weeks on a hill, often get nothing from Peoples fm, it wouldn’t suprize me if they turn up on the ssdab thing. The audio level on a lot of stations does differ alot it can be really low, think they just take the signal off the internet for them, I can’t imagine it will be much use anyone outside of the city they wouldn't able to drive around listening to it.
