For a long time now, Brightonians have enjoyed a slightly-dodgy rebraadcast of French station FIP thanks to one enterprising resident and a small transmitter. Now, though, about ten years of blind-eyes and official unconcern have come to an end, thanks to a single man from Hove, actually. Iain Smith bubbled the deal to Ofcom, forcing them to act as a complaint had been made. His reason?
How public spirited of him. Because, of course, anyone who tuned into a French station being rebroadcast in Brighton will now, obviously, turn straight to Southern FM instead.
