The top base station appears to be a signal R-535 which covers both the VHF and UHF airbands they are still a very popular receiver but with the advent of 8.33Khz spacing they are not as suitable for the VHF airband now . Having said that I still use my R-532 for monitoring the 25Khz channels

Cheers ‘Frequency Hopper’ and ‘Chris P’ for the welcome. :thumbup: Just looked up a photo of the Signal R-535 and that’s the one. Brings back some good memories.

Welcome to the forum funkyjudge. There use to be a decent Medium Wave station in Leicester in the 80's Radio Nova, I think it was called. There were originally three stations all broadcasting from a location just to the West of Leicester. They were raided & taken off the air & Nova came as a result of that. And got it's name from a nicked, sorry borrowed, jingles package from an Irish station & I am sure it was Chris Carey's (Spangles Muldoon's) Radio Nova they borrowed them from. (Anyone for cheap Satellite TV?)
Nova were at one time a 7 day a week station & Leicester only commercial station.
