Local papers? We get the "Nottingham EVENING Post" delivered to work before I arrive at 08:25 in the morning, the national dailies aren't even there at that time!

So that's what I could here on 105.7 in Preston - getting battered by Real on 105.4 and City Talk on 105.9 though. Has Heart seen a power boost - was getting that with RDS in Preston this week -...

Plug In, Turn on, Let it tune, 50 - works?

Not that I can see the advantage on BBC ONE HD - however ITV-1 HD is noticeably sharper than Granada.

RAM FM have been promoting derbyscapitaliscoming.co.uk - presumably it's too much of a mouthful to do the same for Nottingham and Leicester?

102.8 and 96.2 don't sound much better than 105.4 - sounds like they are being broadcast from a waterfall - both 102.8 and 96.2 have more bass than 105.4, although on 96.2 the stereo indicator (and...

Waltham BBC is on 61, with Nottingham Interleaved being 62 so I guess those will get bumped down to 49 and 50 (which should it happen would mean that Mux 1 won't be moving on Waltham).

IIRC Derby Drum Hill and one others in Derby's are proposed - I would have imagined that Chesterfield (to match Digital One) or Stanton Moor would be nearer the top of the list than Darley Dale.
