I did notice an o/c on 98.5 whilst on the Mid North Coast but assumed it was a birdie/something jamming my receiver.
All good, I thought it might have been something like that.
There’s no audio on the carrier, but RDS is still there, so it’s not a totally unmodulated carrier.
At 10.25pm there’s now southern US/African Blues/Hillybilly music now on 98.5 Radio 2OOO.
Not sure when modulated baseband (0-15kHz) content resumed. We’ll check tomorrow to determine if normal programming has resumed…
UPDATE: 19/9 6.30AM AEST can now hear CRI programming (China gov voice) on Radio 2OOO so they are now back to either usual programming or some kind of alternative interim feed.
Pulse FM 89.9 has been suffering from more audio dropouts on air then normal (They have an audio glitch which causes the audio to drop out every 2-3mins for a second), I wonder if the heat is causing issues.
Much earlier this morning there was no audio at all from them…
Does anyone know if they have moved transmission sites yet?
I am assuming not as no change in signal strength here.
I heard or read somewhere that the council helped them sort out a new site…
Rough time? I’ll see if I can pull the audio from the FM logger
The link above is a stream of this nice sounding FM transceiver I managed to hook up that’s been recording for months… listen anytime and compare it to whatever audio you may be receiving on your DX rig
Be interesting to hear what was happening before it dropped out
No idea. Although coincidentally I was pondering if the loss of studio audio might have been related to the intended future tx site move since it is the first time I had noted an extended period of silence from them (noted over a few hours at least). Maybe not as no change in signal stregth here either.
Folks may recall that when 2BACR changed it’s name to ‘Connect FM’ there were some comments where we thought it was a great name for a Community (FM) radio station.
Skipping ahead to present time I note that 5TCB has very recently also changed its name to Connect FM.
Images of their logo’s & news can be found on their existing Facebook page & new website address below.
@Radiohead during your recent trip to SA/Vic border were they identifying as 5TCB or Connect FM? It seams the name change happened just 2 to 3 days ago.
Probably their RDS has also been updated if anyone has any updates?
Last week when I was in SA, on air and RDS was both 5TCB
