Thanks for the updated information I don't understand why rude is on 2 frequencies at the moment and I am surprised that house fm didn't hold on to 90.2 as they waited ages for a decent frequency and they got it and only stayed with it a few months they are 20 years old now

Not in London at the moment. Is Rude broadcasting from the same area, or are they trying to cover London using two locations? Must admit, I'm really happy they are making a go of it again.

94.6 have gone off just as I finally sorted out stable reception for them. Hopefully temporary.

Spice 104.0 and Omega 104.1 are locked in a battle of whose signal is stronger, which means that in West London you can basically hear neither. More and more of these unfortunate frequency choices lately.

Also 4Tune, Rude, CityLock and even Select(!) are all off the air today. Wonder how much of that is because of the storm.

Probably all of them no raids would have taken place today and any planed would have been cancelled and if a legal station is off definitely the weather

Intent Live on 99.7 have officially changed their name to Wk-END:

RDS shows WK-END.

Their website is still showing their old name though:

No sign of it here in Bermondsey SE1. Must be too weak and too far away from me.

Spice Radio 1 have moved from 104.0 to 103.9, presumably to stop clashing with Omega on 104.1. Their music selection is actually pretty similar to Omega, as are many of their adverts (local to NW London). Curious!

Are Buzz still around on 103.8? I haven't heard them in years, but then I may be too far away in Bermondsey SE1.

Omega on 104.1 are not on the list, maybe time for an update of said list?

Are Kral still on 104.2? Given their output I presume they're a North London station.

I can't receive any of these three in SE1, not even weak signals.

If Buzz are no longer on 103.8 then in an ideal world the best arrangement would be for Spice to use 103.8, Omega use 104.0, and Kral keep 104.2. But then this is not an ideal world!

Omega have been a solid presence on the dial for the past two years at least. I can also confirm that they can be heard in parts of SE London too, e.g. in some more elevated parts of Forest Hill and Crystal Palace. I agree, it's a shame about the frequency clashes, defeats the point of it all really!

Omega was definitely on the list when I made it 8 years back but looks like Admin must have removed it, for some strange reason?

That whole list could do with a bit of an update to be fair as I'm pretty sure Touch FM (94.0) & Beat FM (101.9) have both been off air for years now too.

I may be wrong but I think Beat FM 101.9 are now The Beat London 103.6 and hold a community license.
