Programme sounded pre-recorded, as the presenter gave the wrong time. He said ten to four, but it was actually ten to three. Station was only on air from 1400 to 1600 hrs & went off the air & never come back that day. Nothing else heard since.
Nick, help yourself to the link if you want to post on other forums...

I'm curious to know if anybody heard anything on 87.5 from Bristol direction a couple of months back. Somebody from London heard it was reaching Reading and drove from there to take it off, so it didn't last long. Got told about it a couple of weeks late, and I hadn't been tuning around much so didn't hear it myself.

My thoughts were it was possibly the Southampton lot trying something different. It was a 500W Chinese rig on a hill apparently, playing DnB from a laptop.

I was checking some old recordings yesterday, & I came across one of a pirate on 87.5 named Faze FM in 2015. They do go on air very randomly, even a year apart for their transmissions. I have not had a pirate on 87.5 for a very long time but maybe they (or some other station) were on air although must have been for a very short while.

Is UK Raw from London still going on 87.5? I could receive that quite well during northern tropo lifts.

I have read that UK Raw has changed frequency since Flex FM got a license. It was still on 87.5 when this other pirate appeared near Bristol though.

Aye same here I read they are now using 99.7 which is not a good frequency here I do wonder why move off 87.5 a clear frequency.

Change of management I think.
