Thanks mate, here’s the video so you can send it to them & see what we mean, I had another video from years ago when it was doing similar but can’t find that one now.
At this location 2GO should be clear & in stereo, even though it’s close to Mt Sugarloaf.
You might have to turn the video volume up to hear it clearly?
Bit of a background & insight to the issue, I’ve been thinking about it all night, & am going back to my original theory about the old VHF Band 2 NBN TV antenna, being the cause?
This wide bandwidth spurious issue with NEWFM has been going on for a number of years, it’s not permanent & does happen at any time of the year, but mostly seems to show itself around summer time, thus annoys the local DX fans as it blocks a number of out of area frequencies.
This issue never happened until more or less straight after NBN TV turned off their Analogue transmitter on VHF Channel 3 & has been happening ever since. I don’t think they’ve done it (& probably won’t due to making it a lightning attractor), but I’d like NBN to ground their old VHF Band 2 antenna stack, or remove it completely from the tower & see if it solves this issue?
I think it may be picking up, mixing & re-radiating various FM stations? I have heard 102.9 KOFM lower down the band as a spurious transmission before, but unfortunately NEWFM is the worst, being quite strong at times & seems to be more often & for longer periods of time than any of the other local stations.
If you look at this latest occurrence, it’s the sum of the difference between NEWFM on 105.3 & KIISFM Sydney on 106.5 with the resultant audio falling on a generated frequency of 107.7 which happens to be 2GOFM Gosford, & it’s strong enough to wipe it out completely in an area where 2GOFM is normally easily & clearly receivable.
