I'm getting dubstep on 88.8, but the signal is quite week and hissy.

Lockdown BTN - https://lockdownbtn.radio12345.com/

They must be low power if they're calling themself a "micro fm community station".
Pirate Radio's not a problem, it's a solution

Stupid frequency, BBC Radio 2 London 88.8 comes in strong in parts of Brighton.

I don't get why these Brighton dumb-asses keep on coming on London legal frequencies and confining themselves just to Brighton city. It makes no sense at all.

....not one of the 3 new licenced community stations came on over the top of any London frequencies because Ofcom aren't even that clueless to put them on one of those.

When CodeSouth was on 98.5 I used to get interference from BBC Radio 1 (London) only in Worthing just 10 miles away.

Anyway so much for this 88.8 thing, all I get at home is BBC Radio 2 from London and not a trace of it.

Has it been on 24/7? Someone I know was driving around north Brighton the other night and couldn't hear it at all...

"we play:-Ambient, Dub, Reggae, Ska, RaggaJungle, Drum and Bass, UKhiphop, House, Trap, Techno, Hardcore, Drumfunk."

Weird that they have DnB on that list, and then single out 'drumfunk', which AFAIK is a sub-style of DnB :D

Calling themselves a Micro FM station, so the tiny signal might be deliberate.
