Anyone got an update?
Not heard anything in Oxfordshire for weeks. The sheep here are getting bored with listening to Heart and Radio 1.

Can hear it coming through this morning, it's very weak and hissy but it's constantly there - especially the sounds of the basslines.

Why did the outer London thread disappear on this mob ? Surely the London thread should have been wiped !

It does seem like 87.5 has become difficult to keep up. I don't understand why now and not before when it seemed like normal frequencies were always hit and 875 was left alone now it seems to be the opposite?

Really don't know why people insist on using 87.5 plus the amount of power!! I wonder how many rigs they've lost to Ofcom now?

Comparing them to the other Raw, I haven't noticed them off once yet and people though that their freq was a bad choice including me.. :whistle

Yes, but maybe more 8 or 9 years ago, the tiime flies...

And from memory they were:

Sub-Zero (aka UK's Finest/Raw Innocence)
Platinum (aka Bashment)
Lynx FM (Some African thing)
Impact FM (north Sussex)
Funky FM (Essex)
Noize FM (Beds)

I had never heard the last 4 on your list and now I remember how popular bashmemt was and can remember the signal clashing with the more local UK finest
