Following the sad demise of local radio Hafren last year, there is no longer a radio service specifically targetting the local area. The chief reason for loss of the service was lack of advertising revenue to support the service, but this in turn was more likely to reflect low listener levels
The radio band is presumably now vacant. Being an AM frequency it is unlikely that anybody will be desperate to get their hands on it because the sound quality is pretty dire. However in this post I will look at using this station and its frequently as a technological testbed. The provision of a local radio service (for which demand was lacking) might be considered more as an afterthought.
