Question by Kevinlad: Why the national radio stations have a range of FM frequencies?
For example, BBC radio 1 is ranging from 97 – 99 FM, radio 2 is 88 – 91 FM, classic FM is 100 – 102 FM, etc. Why couldn’t these stations broadcast in only one frequency nationally (for example, just FM 98.8 for radio 1 throughtout the UK) and then free up the rest of the frequency range to other radio stations?

    They probably do only broadcast in one frequency, your radio is sensitive enough to pick them up over several frequencies. If you are really close to a really powerful signal, it could override low power signals.
