Things are getting quite busy!
Bert seems to have teamed up with Dave Moore and what happed is Roy put on 106.5 and then Dave Moore turned on 106.4 with a dead carrier to try and block Roy.
Roy then turns on 102.2 + 106.1 as a show of strength. Saturday he moved to 99.8 to annoy Bert I think 'cause of the thing on 106.4. Things are getting busy !

Gary Hogg reports from the Fylde
Sound FM were heard on 105.7MHz for one weekend, then seem to have moved up to 105.8. Perhaps they were a bit close to Century. Not heard
anything else here from Merseyside over the past few weeks.
Phantom FM have been heard again during the past week on 107.0MHz from
the Lancaster area. They are possibly student at the University judging
by the comments heard. The signal is quite reasonable here with an
outside aerial (15 miles away). Music seems to be mainly dance type and
High pressure has brought FM signals in from Eire this week. Pirate
stations heard include Radio Dublin (100.0), KISS FM Dublin (105.8),
Vibe FM Dublin(106.4) and Energy 106 (Monaghan - the strongest)
(106.6). A friend heard some other stations on a trip to West Scotland
on Monday, including Radio North (Donegal)(103.9), Energy 106 (106.6 and
107.7), KISS FM Dundalk (106.0) and Tyrone Community Radio (107.4
Some of the Dublin stations are closing at the end of June in order to
try for one of the 6 licenses on offer, so it may be the last chance to
hear some in their present form.
