Am I reading this wrong or does that suggest they're throwing signal at Castle Hill which will then block it by virtue of being taller?
Yep :rolleye

Heard Ade Marxx on earlier and left it on for a bit.

DAB and both FMs are out of sync. Fairly painful to listen to in a moving car...

Yeah, but my car will swap between DAB and FM automatically as well, so effectively three out of sync rigs. Right mess.

They are on the North Birmingham DAB as well, and guess what? That is out of sync with Dudley too.

There are some places where it switches between that and Dudley DAB for more fun and games...

Yup. Same here.
At least where I live which is the wrong side of Dudley and Sedgley)for the DAB to be listenable, the fm just flicks between the two every few seconds and is awful.
When Ade Marks was on Sundays I'd just tell Siri to stream it because the fm was ridiculous after 922 switched on.
If you think I care, you're too far gone.
