Best thing to do is check House fm's stream and see if it matches what you're hearing on FM.

....I didn't know they played Trance but they are the only station on 88.6FM as far as I'm aware.

I did check the steam and it did sound like he said trancey stuff about 7 this evening on house and they have even played the drum and bass track lately and if I remember rightly it did get out across the London side of Kent

Yeah I heard garage, trance and drum and bass, I think I heard a lockdown fm shout out. I am north Kent coast. It turned off around half 9. I think it was an autodj but they was playing some bangers

Deviation bandwidth is >225kHz due to very low bass frequencies, I'm guessing no HPF present. Also currently sounds like they've left a sweeping flanger filter on.

Yes there are two stations on 88.6. House FM from London and Lockdown FM from east Kent with low power I can only assume because signal not reaching out too far.
