Yes and has been on there 14 years now after a few other frequencies like 108 fm for a long time before

PB 90.2 was in stereo? Whenever I've seen their MPX signal the 19khz carrier isn't there so radios cant detect it as stereo. The stereo difference signal is there though so if you can force stereo it would work fine.
FM for lyfe!

I think PB have always been in stereo ever since they first started from Langley in Slough around 1994 on 101.2

They must have gone back to stereo recently then as I left the London area a few months ago but it was definitely only mono in 2019 and early 20

Yes it's been noted on the top part of the subjects on this site I am out of reach at the moment where are you getting it?

I'm picking up House FM on 90.2 too, but it's hardly audible, and certainly not listenable, in Bermondsey, SE1. Too far away and not enough power I guess.

That's what I was saying they were no where near where they used to be I could hardly hear them last time round but 90.2 is clear for my area. Did you get point blank in your Area when they had 90.2?

Point Blank was there, but barely audible. Like you say, House FM must be using a different site now. I'm too far away, over in Bermondsey.

I remember House FM used to be on 100.3 ages ago. That signal used to come in loud and clear here.

And the opposit here I actually think it's the same site and equipment from point blank so they will have listeners that could not have received the old 1003

I just went up on the roof of my building in Bermondsey SE1 with my trusty Roberts Vintage receiver and could get a perfectly listenable House FM on 90.2 in stereo, albeit very hissy and signal not good enough to get any RDS data showing, assuming they are using RDS that is. The tx site must be far away from me as there are many, many more pirates coming in really loud and clear up there. I might post a bandscan of my findings at some point.

House 90.2 has RDS and just says House and not House fm so all you see is House
