Your truth free from fear:

- no anorak victims here!

"The big difference between Anorak Nation and the many other anoraky boards is that the discussion can get into the finer details of subjects 'cos there's a lot of experts, good ideas and wonderful experiences being shared.

It's all with a good sense of fun, friendship and respect.

Most importantly Anorak Nation has none of the gratuitous bullying and victimisation that other places allow or encourage."

About Anorak Nation:

We are a collective ('Nation') of enthusiasts ('Anoraks') of gadgets, boys toys, technology, tv, film, new media and communication, especially real radio - free radio born of the pirate radio stations.

If you are an early adopter, putting all your cash into the purchase of the next big thing in 'tech', a collector and lover of gizmos old or new, or a 'web-head' exploring the latest social media and 'cloud' developments, then you've found your home.

It's also your home if you enjoy film and tv, or if you're tired of bland, boringly presented, syndicated radio stations run by a badly programmed computer, playing the same few safe old songs over and over again.

Centred on our discussion, Anorak Nation offers feeds of UK media and new technologies news, debate and lively exchanges of views and more.

Remember: You cannot see the current poll, start a message or reply to others unless you are logged-in.

Re: Shock at discovering a Windows user

Wow. How about this? who uses a 'ferret' to listen into radio waves? Charector and TV programme to earn yourself 3 gold stars!

Re: Shock at discovering a Windows user

'Still' use the Windows 8 operating system ? No PC will come with anything newer. You are presumably eluding towards Linux - Linux is hardly new though - the kernel is many years old.

Shock at discovering a Windows user

Ha Ha. Just met somebody so backward they still use Windows 8. I thought only third world countries still used Microsoft operating systems. Ha ha ha.

Re: Well done to Roy Martin

When you say the service area is greatly modified - is that to your advantage /​ disadvantage?

Re: Well done to Roy Martin

Graham, Www.celticmusicradio.net survived on 1530 AM for 6 years, With a folk music based format. We have now progressed to FM in Glasgow, I am finding that the service area is greatly modified.

Re: Well done to Roy Martin

Whilst I see your logic, having worked with Asian businesses in the past many are very loyal - like families. So they might do better than you think. So more might make it than you think.

Re: Well done to Roy Martin

There is a definite pattern that Muslim stations get put on AM. Maybe OFCOM feel that their audience is a loyal one and they are more likely to listen to them - even if they are on AM.
