Wednesday 19th June was a fantastic day, as all the support we have had, and all the work we have done, led to the dawn of a new chapter in the life of The station that was born as Flash 1512 back in July 2012. 7 years later and we are almost ready to launch a full time service on FM from Waterlooville, and we could not have got to this point without the tremendous support we have had for our ‘Fund For FM’ appeal.
Although we are only now in the process of paying off invoices for the FM transmission equipment and the installation costs, I am very pleased to reveal that the entire system is now installed at the transmitter site in Waterlooville town centre, and ready for the big switch on.
I must thank Alan Beech (Sunday presenter Big Al) and his colleague Wallace from Commtronix Ltd for their 6 hours of hard work on the roof of Waterlooville Library. 

We plan to commence full test transmissions on 104.3 FM at lunchtime on Thursday 27th June and expect to operate engineering music tests for a couple of weeks before launching the new service at midday on Saturday 13th July. A great deal of work will need be carried out at our Havant studio in preparation for the launch of our FM service, so for this reason our regular programmes on DAB and internet will be suspended from 9.00pm on Sunday 30th June and until the relaunch at midday on Saturday 13th July. You will however still enjoy Real Music on these platforms while this work takes place and we will keep you informed on our progress.
These are exciting times and I know our regular listeners will be patient with us while we prepare for the next chapter in the life of YOUR radio station.
