Updated again. Sane stations as above, no new stations have launched or old ones made a comeback.

Your welcome. Updated again, no other new stations. Only that UK Bass has been heard doing a weekday broadcast on 16/10/19. No idea if it will be a regular or one off.

First post updated. Still just the same two stations. I would have thought that during Lockdown, an extra station or two would have appeared. What I noticed was UK Bass were transmitting a bit more often. In some cases I think they were doing tests rather than live transmissions as I heard interruptions every now & then.

I wonder if SWR has been on in recent weeks? Some weekends I've heard a very weak signal on 87.6 playing house music that peaks in the direction of Southampton. In fact I remember hearing it last weekend.
Good DX.

Yes SWR has been on the past recent weeks & every time I have tuned in they are playing house along with some retro stuff.
