VFR aircraft comms breaking through on normal radio

    Hi all,

    Just a query if anyone can shed any light. Aircraft landing into Weston seem to be occasionaly breaking through on Today FM's frequency in my area.

    Thought it strange as Weston is 122.4 and Today FM 104-105. Any thoughts?

    Most likely to be a problem with your own radio.

    How close are you located to the airfield and do you hear ground and air transmissions?

    Today FM is on 100-101.8 and 105.5 in North East.

    122.4MHz minus 21.4MHz equals 101MHz.

    21.4 is twice the intermediate frequency of your radio. (10.7MHz)
