Who knows... maybe some run more... coming to something though when some are quoting Freshsoundz, Unique & Cyndicut as "strongest"... fair play though, the thread doesn't specify WHERE... my iTrip is strongest in my house my a good margin... I thought (as it's in the London section) the OP meant 'London Wide'... but if FS & Unique are classed as amongst the strongest then clearly we aren't talking 'London' are we!.... that Lovelife was getting out well though I must admit (and I mean... throughout LONDON)

unique get to bedford now as off recent they have defo moved site recently.they would be london wide im sure if there was not 101.1 -101.3 if they was two away they would do much better but its hard enough to get a freq in london anway but they do get out well now so they upped power or moved as for freshsoundz ive only heard they once on the m25 in essex and they sounded ok not sure how they get out

Fairly recently I am getting 88.4 Vision with RDS in Herts! It might be a tropo enhancement though, but it happened a few times within last week. It reaches 20 dBf. A very strong signal.

Ah blimey fair enough!!! - I'd say anything OUTSIDE London / M25 for ANY station is a bonus... isn't it?? - so if you can't pick-up a London station near Luton I wouldn't say that make's em "weak" myself but.... different people... different ways!

I could hear Vision on my car radio near Rotterdam on Friday. It was probably a lift since it was battling with Echo FM from Freiburg (a low power University station) in Germany and RNI from the north-eastern Netherlands. Vision was definitely the strongest of the three!
Is it meant to smoke like that? :shock:

Hi Albert,

Yesterday was some Tropo enhancement, so It highly possible you received Vision on 88.4. Recently, they putting out strong signal or might be a change of location?
