Are there any versions of those online SDR's which cover FM frequencies particularly in London ?

That way one those of us in other parts of the UK could enjoy the best of both worlds (FM and Online) :tup

Mostly online, or fm sometimes in car . Less than a handful of good pirates left in London to listen to for good dance music . Such a shame when you think how good the 80s and 90s was. Ground breaking new music .. load of old toffee now

................Online is not even pirate radio for me, by definition it is not a radio transmission.
Very true :lol:

Always on FM when I'm driving around London. And now I've moved out to Kent, I don't have much choice. Interesting that the dial at home is just as busy as London, just that it's all legal and mainly French. Still quite entertaining...or maybe I'm just bored lol.
