For the third time this year there is a problem with BBCRadio3 on FM (92.3). This time it is a loud & persistent low frequency hum (50Hz?). Present on mono & stereo & on all tuners & radios with external or internal aerials. It seems to have started today, 2nd June

The hum on BBCRadio 3 has been reported by another Brighton listener:

Sunday am. The hum has now been joined by a continuous loud 'frying' reminiscent of the 'interference' experienced in February(discussed above) making the service unlistenable. It appears that no one at the BBC bothers to monitor the Whitehawk FM output.

GerryCW: The BBC status report for Radio 3 FM from Whitehawk Hill shows various breaks in transmission yesterday morning, so presumably someone is aware that there was/is a problem.

Not sure if this is the right forum to ask the question but I want to install an FM aerial to receive transmissions from Whitehawk - I am well within the identified area for reception of all stations - will a dipole be sufficient? Also, would vertical or horizontal mounting be best?
