    New transmitters in Herts!

    There are now more ways to hear BBC Three Counties Radio than ever before, due to the arrival of two new transmitters for Hertfordshire. This brings the total number of 3CR frequencies to nine, due to the massive area the station covers.

    When you split your frequencies for live coverage of Watford/Luton/ MK Dons, why don't you put the Watford game on 92.1? I can pick that up in the Rookery stand, but not 103.8 or 630. Heaven is to watch the game live with the added entertainment of Simon's commentary!
