LASER HOT HITS - 95.1FM - NE SOMERSET
I can't believe I've not mentioned this before, or if I have the search isn't working and I can't find my post about it. Laser Hot Hits, the famous UK SW Rock pirate, has an FM relay in NE Somerset on 95.1FM. Apparently it can be heard from about J18 of the M4 all the way to Clevedon. I can't hear it where I am, it may not be on when I try to tune in, but it's power has been increased recently according to the LHH website. It's odd that they don't use 95.2 as that is more directly between the two local BBC frequencies of 94.9 and 95.5, but as the 95.5 one is for Somerset I guess it's best to steer clear of it.
PASSION RADIO BRISTOL
Recent posters were advertising the 106.2FM frequency and since then there has been a rig confiscation which put the station off air for a few weeks. It came back on in the last week and I was listening to it earlier, but it seems to have disappeared now. However...
I'm not even sure this is a positive, but tonight I'm getting a carrier jumping in and out on 105FM. Sounds a bit like somebody setting up a rig. Maybe Passion have decided to move frequency finally? Maybe it's the return of Ragga? Maybe it's something new? It could turn out to be some faulty equipment near me putting out a carrier.
UPDATE - Terry Star confirms there is a carrier on 105, although it's 'quite clear' where he is.
UPDATE - The rig on 105 was off by mid day on Friday 11th March. I have not heard it since, but I've been busy. No return of Passion on 106.2 either.
