steve: I seem to have imported them as integers, not floating point. Will fix this evening. Apologies.

Brian - are you having to do it manually, one by one? ATM some are 99.9 format and others no unit at all! But where there is a nuit, still kHz!

steve: The database table isn't really suitable, it all needs re-writing properly. I will be doing this soon, probably at the weekend.

Does the Llangollen transmitter broadcast DAB yet ? It's FM services can be received very well in this part of Cheshire (in some pockets better than Holme Moss such as Rainow, Macclesfield Forest and Fools Nook), but no DAB here ?

Many UK BBC WORLD SERVICE listeners who listen on 648kHz MW in the east and south east of England and after dark in other areas will soon no longer be able to do so.

The BBC is ceasing its 648 kHz transmissions of BBC World Service English language radio on 27 March 2011 after decades of broadcasting on this frequency and 1089kHz (276m) before that plus occasionally on 1296 kHz in the UK (including programmes for listeners learning English). The end of an era and quite sad day for me as I used to place my transister radio in one particular place on my window sill near the BT box and 276m and later 648kHz & 1296kHz used to boom out very clearly, despite the distance between Orfordness and Mottram-in-Longdendale and the fact that the signal was beamed primarily towards Europe.

The BBC say they have had to make some difficult decisions about the distribution of BBC World Service radio around the world, as a result of the Spending Review settlement that BBC World Service received at the end of 2010.

Closure of the 648 kHz service continues the process of withdrawing from direct broadcasts to Europe in response to a declining number of direct listeners.

However BBC World Service continues to be available in Europe by satellite, cable and online. Not much use in a car on the move.

This will remove the service from car radio listeners in Western Europe too. Not really sure how they can call it a WORLD service anymore with such drastic cuts.

198kHz LW will continue to relay BBC World Service overnight between 1am and 5.20am overnight (except on General Election night) as will Radio 4 FM (and R4 MW in certain areas).

I imagine part of the decline is a result of programme changes with far more repetitious rolling news and business news and sport programmes and drastic reductions in popular music, classical music, specialist music, comedy, science, thrillers and other drama output.

Is it just me, or do others find that the basic sound volume level on BBC Freeview Radio channels is much louder than the TV Channel sound and almost bordering on being distorted. Any idea why ? I have two separate Freeview sources and this problem is the same on each.
