This guy's been transmitting from home for some time. Started with 7w and went up in stages to 150w. All Chinese transmitters. Check out his other videos incl rangefinding in his car. He hasn't posted his address...yet :lol:

He doesn't say the station name in his videos. Can't see a mic, desk or RDS but poss an ident recorded in the playlist? I'm not down that way so haven't heard it Live.

This is Retro FM:



Looks like Retro is probably not Dean Waters unless he started to record and present shows and put those on the USB stick for broadcast, but then it doesn't sound quite like the same bloke. He says in comments on one of his vids that he just plays oldies back to back. That said, there is also a comment saying that 'Retro FM hits Crawley' on one of his vids.

Yeah doesn't sound like the same guy but it's definitely the same kind of music and seems to be in the same kind of direction that Retro FM seems to be coming from. Putting 2 + 2 together I wouldn't be surprised if this guy has got something to do with it.

Could well be a connection. Not my kinda music but there's a passion behind those transmissions which is to be admired.
