(It was noted that Signal 2 did not take The A List on the final Sunday and instead went local, so it is unsure if the other three UTV stations The Wolf, Wave 102 and Peak 107 also dropped the chart in favour of hit40uk. The UTV stations shall remain in the 'final' list). It turns out that Real Radio's Penicuik transmitter hasn't yet been commissioned - reflected in map.
