Radio Big L has ceased transmissions on 1395 kHz. This was announced by Mike Read, DJ of the station, as being done “for environmental reasons”. The station is still on the air online and via Sky.

Elsewhere – in the net- the story goes somewhat differently: “The transmitter was switched off on 1st August 2008 due to a lack of money for paying the very raised price of the oil needed for transmitting from this 1395 kHz-transmitter. According to the Big L’s website it will be returning to 1395khz and during the period of it being off, it is their hope to improve the signal to reach more of the United Kingdom.
