Black Cat Radio

Black Cat Radio is a public analogue radio station radio. UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

Out of work (reasonably popular) former 34 year BBC Presenter. Live not too far away. If you get any 'holes' you want filling, I would be happy to 'fill 'em'

Whether I am your kind of Presenter, would remain to be seen. Anyway Phone Number (01223) 871733

Best Wishes to you all. Mr Almond may (or may not) vouch for me, and - (possibly) so may Mr Gilham.

Richard Spendlove, MBE: This is not the website of Black Cat Radio or any other broadcaster and they are unlikely to see your message here. Try contacting the station via their own website.

Richard Spendlove, MBE: Hi, Richard. What happened to your show on BBC Local Radio across the Eastern Counties on a Saturday evening? I thought it was very popular and had a massive following. I just can't believe that the Beeb decided that it didn't need your services anymore. I think that 'these days' it's necessary to submit a CV to prospective new employers, preferably by email to the targeted member of HR personnel of the organisation for whom you wish to work. I used to find that it was best to highlight your significant achievements in your field ( of which you clearly have many) in the CV.

Hope this helps, an avid listener of Richard Spendlove for ten years,

Richard in Norwich.

Paxton Hill is in Cambridgeshire not Hertfordshire.
Now that the transmitter is on top of the hill instead of the old Paines Brewery Mill in the town its transmission area has improved significantly. I listened to the station today all the way from Yaxley near Peterborough all the way home to St Neots. The signal was also okay in the shadow of Alconbury hill to the south of Sawtry.

Iain Martin:

I'm afraid the site owner hasn't had the time to correct some of the errors that have occurred on this site.
The reason it's quoted as Hertfordshire is because the map co-ordinates are wrong, which seems to be because they are quoted as an 8 digit grid reference which has been incorrectly truncated to 6 digits. It should be TL20626261 according to OFCOM.
