Week ten of league cricket sees one or two successful sides falter, but Newdigate beat the table-toppers, South Nutfield and Reigate Priory sail on, there’s a maiden club hundred for Dru Tunstall at Outwood, and another big milestone’s passed at Horley, this time by Deepal Ahangama who’s in town from Sri Lanka.
July’s ‘On The Front Foot’ sees Tim Bowling, David Jay and pundit Andy Tharp discussing local club news – including a remarkable milestone for Horley’s Chris Allen – plus the County Championship, before moving on the the World Cup and other matters. Guests are Robert Mitchell, Chair of the East Surrey Colts’ League; and Mary Briggs and Maz Graham from Outwood Blazes.

After a year of discussion and applications completed, OFCOM engineers today visited the Reigate Hill based transmission site of Susy Radio 103.4, completed various tests for compliance and authorised the turning up of the transmitted power.
Susy Radio was originally licensed to broadcast on 103.4FM using 50 Watts, but was finding that many listeners were struggling with reception for various reasons including the shielding effects of modern building construction.
The board of directors applied to OFCOM for a transmitter power increase and today just before lunch time, saw this request was achieved. The decision came following OFCOM’s tests to ensure no one was adversely affected by the power increase.
Susy Radio 103.4 is now transmitting at 100 Watts. This increase represents a doubling of transmitted power, or in technical terms a “3 Decibel lift”, which should be noticed by Susy Radio listeners as a clearer signal as well as more reliable reception on smaller radios when driving around the area.
