    Hi All,

    wondered if someone could shed some light on this.

    I live in Europe and would like to listen to UK radio stations whilst in the car. Last week I was in someone's car and they were listening to a UK radio station while in France. How does this work? What car radio's would do this.. is this something to do with GPS / Sat Nav? Is it illegal - This was not a recorded show or similar - actual live Radio 1, while in France.

    Much appreciated for your help.

    Must have been on MW or LW, unless the BBC have a transmitter in France - and they better not have if it's coming out of my license fee!

    You can use satellite radio, to listen to certain UK stations.
    Have to subscribe monthly to either Sirus or Worldspace, (global satellite service) install kit and away you go.

    So basically you can listen to certain radio stations in the world
    regardless of where you are or where you're from.

    Could be digital radio (DAB). Because of the frequencies they broadcast on, you can fit so many more stations in the same bandwidth than conventional radio. They may broadcast english stations in certain areas of europe.
