I can hear Flex FM again on 101.4 tonight (I checked with the stream) due to tropo, which was a nice surprise. Tropo is good though, going down as far as the north coast of Spain.

Do you mean in normal conditions you can't? It's seems more powerful now than the test transmissions period

Yes it's not receivable in flat conditions since they went vertical. My Yagi is horizontal.

So they moved to a new studio today, looks like they have gone with a similar setup to Rinse now rather than the two separate studios they have separate stations within one studio.

I think they have been a disappointment and the pirate operation was better

Nice studio but I second the above opinion from Fame. Flex's content was generally much more reliable/listenable when it was a pirate imo.

The only time I really lock into Flex these days is on Sundays. In the old days, there was a lot more old skool, now it seems they put it on between 2-4 and 6-10 with only one real set for the old skool hardcore.

I would just say there's certainly more variety now but its not to everyones tastes.
