Air Fair Radio - has begun its annual RSL covering the Biggin Hill Airshow this weekend. Unlike previous years, they are on 1278 kHz AM rather than FM. Apparently there were no FM frequencies available this weekend. They're also webcasting via their website www.airfair-radio.co.uk

Also the Radio Vodafone Derby RSL from Epsom seem to have missed out on their usual FM allocation this weekend. They're on 1134 kHz mediumwave.
