Not sure about Southampton as I have a clash of things to do!
Re 648 power, I personally think weíre at a very good compromise at the moment with a good signal right into Norfolk and Kent,. Iím in Dartford which I think is 70 miles as the crow flies from the TX. My Hacker Hunter has a great signal if itís near a window, and the car is pretty good, and gets better as I drive east. Noticeably better in Strood, just 20 minutes east. Useable (by normal peoples thresholds!) Just, by the O2.
I think thatís good bang for the buck, and for the reasons explained above, and the good old laws of diminishing returns, it would cost a load more in power required to run it for significant improvements, especially right now!
On top of that, most ďnormalĒ people listen for the content, and will use the many other clean methods of delivery.
I think 648 works particularly well in its intended reception areas as actually, 4G isnít too hot as you drive around, and DAB would be no better. If you want to stay with Caroline in these areas, 648 is the perfect fill in. The signal is good and itís nit long before you finger itís AM and just tap your foot to whatís being played.
