Re 2HD; I’d be phoning the broadcast tech @ 2HD/NEW FM & asking him to change the PI code to: 2975. Or ideally as per Commercial Radio Aust’s guidelines PI change to: 297A (in consideration of 2GGG 97.5 whether they have RDS or not).
RE 2NEW FM. Their PI code is listed as: A00A. Unfortunately I didn’t check their PI code when last up that way. Maybe someone can confirm that or if you ring the NEW FM tech you could ask him.
You could request that he change the PI code to: 2053 to see if that results in a better result re your RDS decoding in your Ford Focus?
Just out of curiosity; can you RDS decode: 94.9 Central Coast? PI code: C949 or 2SER 107.3 with PI code of: FFFF ?
I’m sure if you contact the 2HD tech or management in Newcastle & explain the issues that they should ‘ideally’ be helpful as it’s in the station’s interest to get their RDS right. RDS is after all also a promotional & publicity tool.
