Sound FM are on 105.9 with a strong signal
There is also another station on 106.00. No ID as yet.
(21\6 @ 2249)
Neil Clark reports there will be no longer be longer be any RSL's in the
North West on 106.6 from the New Year. In Liverpool, 106.3 will be the
highest allocation & roughly in an area 30 miles from Liverpool, 106.5 may
be allocated. This is due to Knowsley FM coming on air, using 106.7 MHz (a
new full time ILR).
Also, according to Roy Woodward, it won't be TOO long before 106.2 ceases to
be available for RSL usage in the north of England - the second Yorkshire
regional (analogue) [Emley Moor] should be awarded mid 2001 and be on-air by
late 2001/early 2002. Idle and Tapton Hill are expected to use 106.6, so
that should put a crimp in the use of 106.5 in the north west. So there will
be little or no space at that part of the dial in the North by the end of
2001. Having said that 107.0 remains an RSL channel in the Burnley & Pendle
area due to local terrain (Silk FM doesn't get into here at all). He expects
most RSL activity from the middle of next year in the north of England to be
in the 87.5 - 87.9 area. Neil Clark adds that he expects that 106.5 will
more likely be the frequency used for Tapton Hill and Idle, thus keeping 300
kHz from Ridings FM in Wakefield, preventing interference. Having said that,
this will only be 100 kHz away from Galaxy at Bilsdale, so maybe 106.6 will
be used from Idle. He knows that Bilsdale doesn't get into Sheffield and
also he believes 106.6 is being allocated for the second East Midlands IRR
(Century 106 does get into Sheffield fairly well), so they'd probably give
100 kHz 'guard' band between the two stations. Neil guesses that with KCR in
Liverpool & the second IRR from Emley Moor, the RA would only be left with
106.4 for Manchester's future RSLs. They stopped allocating 105.8 when High
Hunsley (Galaxy) came on air & never used 106.0 due to Century.
Just cheked RSL listings

T.T.F.M is now due on Wed 6th June.

Concept was due on tonight (Sunday 10th June) but when they were testing in
the early hours, they received a complaint from someone who works for
Knowsley Community Radio about alleged interference.
A frequency spacing of 3 Kc's is inadequate for the two stations, especially
as some of the KCr presenters live in Wallasey.
Therefore it has been decided to pospone the Concept transmission until the
frequency can be moved.
Tarkwa (105.8) was raided for allegedly interfering with an RSL outside the
area a few years back, even though the RSL (South Flintshire Radio) was not
intended for Wirral.
Pure FM were on 106.45 fri 1/6 @ 0015.
Sreve Mason said they were not on the usual TX or antenna.
I have received a complaint from Dave Collins recently about allegations
that Pirate FM's transmitter is drifting and giving out spurious emissions
on various frequencies. These allegations were supposed to have been made on
the Concept website
I have looked through my files and cannot find any such article. All I can
put it down to is that someone has been passing on opinions expressed by
members of the egroups.
As these groups are closed to the general public, members should not be
passing on information to 'outsiders' because rumours get spread and twisted
around, which results in unnecesary trouble being caused between station
The question is: Does Pirate FM actually give out any Sproggies or harmonics ?
does it drift off frequency ?
your opinions please.
is on 105.7 21/5@1900 now playing reggae, weak signal here in city centre but sounds OK Simon. Also heard by Jim Lowe.
I am currently getting Energy 106 on 106.6 from Ireland.

Did anyone hear Fuzed FM from Warrington on 87.7 (an RSL)? It was on Tuesday

isn't on? Simon.
KCR are now off (Fri 11/5 @ 2315)
Sound FM 105.9 are on with just cont. music so far.

Not much power here (no S reading)
Hi Jim,just had a look at your new site,it look great....well done.Ok for
some news on the smi special,spoke to Roger Dee this afternoon,as it now
turns out the broadcast in October will more than likely not take place on
fm,it will no doubt be on medium wave were it originated,but the way things
are going there is the possabillity that it just may be cancelled altogether.
As for morningstar doing a final broadcast....well I'll let you know whats
going to happen shortly,as dr boogie says..."morningstar was born on fm,and
thats were it should die...r.i.p".
ZSo we may make this bank holiday the final one,cant compete any more
because the situation will get worst,so as I cant go down the band below 104
because the power drops off,and we cant go up the band because of 106.7
KCR,???????/,so where do we go....dont want to upset people,but
nova/morningstar have used 106.5 for a while,but I guess it's time to call
it a day,because too much competition.
Very nice site...Steve.
Pure FM are on 106.4 (18/5 @ 0033) Slight buzz on modulation.
