Are they on 101.4 now then? I heard 101.5 on silent a few days ago but it wasn't empire as they are no longer on so maybe they sold it knowing flex was coming on! I can't get anything where I am on 101.4 atm

I can see Ofcom put two stations on 101.4 in London.

As the old community station was on 101.4 in Hammersmith I can only assume Flex will get it.

Maratime might get VOA old frequency 94.3 or 94 what ever it was.

Flex have definitely got 101.4 it's on their Facebook page as for the other station 101.4 must have been their last RSL stint then?

Why can they not use the studio they have been using for Years whilst a Pirate? Surely the sound quality can't get any better than it was on 99.7
Lol wow is this serious?

Yes serious question, as they have clearly used their previous site for Years, spent £1000s on it, clearly a secure location. Why not use the original studio until they have funds to build a studio / office location? Get on air built the following then spend the money when they have it? Realistically they can run an office for it off a laptop at someones house for a while. Buy Post Office PO BOX and run it from a house.

Maritime is Greenwich... South London... not East! - sorry but it drives me mad ... I've even heard travel reports on the radio about Greenwich & Blackheath and advice to "stay away from this part of East London if you can..."

Mate you have no clue do you..... Ofcom and the committee who granted the licence give no shit where you broadcast from, as long as you give the address, and stick to the rules. Radio stations can broadcast where they like... SO as my point was made.... that if you do not have the money to rent an office space, or a commercial unit with office space, then stick with what you have. IT isn't hard.

You clearly have zero idea what the hell you are going on about do? I mean really have zero idea, have you recently filled in the 2000+ page it take to apply of radio licence? I thought not, so maybe you should listen to someone who has done that.

Hey Steve May, have you finally recovered from that nasty nervous breakdown you had about 20 years back before you turned into a Trannie? :wink: :tup

"stevemay" isn't Steve May. The real Steve May doesn't have anything to do with radio these days.
