Unfortunately I have to report very disappointing results with the Prediction Checker in Sevenoaks. It's very pessimistic, showing no 96.7 FM reception on local station Radio Kent from Wrotham although it's loud and clear. Similarly BBC London 94.9, Capital 95.8, LBC 97.3, Kiss 100.0, Smooth 102.2, Heart Kent 103.1, Radio X 104.9, Magic 105.4, Absolute 105.8 and Heart London 106.2 are all missing. Many more stations such as Resonance 104.4, Rinse 106.8 and Reprezent 107.3 can be received with a better aerial and / or a more sensitive radio.

Amazingly, it says I can't receive any DAB at all, but the Wrotham D1, BBC National and London 1 muxes can all be received loud and clear even with the telescopic aerial unplugged, and London 2 and 3 are fine with the aerial connected.

And apparently the R4 powerhouse on 198kHz LW can't be received anywhere in the country ! So no Test Match Special or Yesterday In Parliament...
