Digital Soul & Venture FM

Post by Casual » Sat Jun 01, 2024 1:07 pm

Just clocked that Croydon FM are now broadcasting on 99.4 according to their website. Don't know why they would need 2 dials in that part of London?

https://www.croydonfm.com/aboutus

So I take it this means Digital Soul & Venture FM will have to now move to new homes? Always been a congested part of the dial around the 99's in London.

That's the first time I have known one of these community stations getting 2 frequencies I thought 97.8 was enough and a frequency that will displace 2 pirates also with just one frequency maybe venture will try 99.6 and I don't think it will be easy for digital soul to find a new one either I can't see 99.2 would be any good?

Yes I am getting "Croydon" on 99.4fm and Venture are on 99.6fm now. No sign of Digital Soul...

Thank you I am not in the area now but nice to see I was right about one of them and 99.6 is not as clear and I would not be surprised if digital soul doesn't find a new frequency and decides to stay online only

Its quite a common thing, community station say so many 1,000’s of people in a given area can’t hear them, so they will either get a power increase or a relay, it doesn’t mean all those 1,000’s of people will tuned to it unlikely, a way to justify the means, we have loads up here, its become a bit of a joke, I don’t think anyones listening to them on fm other if they have involvement in the stations. I suppose fm is no longer important to commercial radio stations, they're allowed to do what they want, their flushing money down the toilet, I suppose its their money. I don't mean to bash them, just my opinion..

Croydon have moved off the Crystal Palace tower so most likely needed a filler for Croydon Town. Crystal ball says digital soul will most likely move down to 99.2

That would explain why I have not picked up the 97.8 signal on the westside for a long time now
