There appear to have been no echoing issues (that I can hear) on both 1089 and 1053 kHz SFNs for well over a week (I have checked a number of times during darkness) , obviously resolving this problem was not insurmountable.

Talksport do not do that anymore as far as I can tell. But they do still have separate traffic/travel news for some areas, I can sometimes easily hear the separate traffic/travel for Scotland on 1089 helped by rotating the radio early in these mornings with Skywaves still present. (listeners possibly hearing another travel news in the background is only a minor issue compared to the constant echoing issues that were occuring!)
