About Laser


We are an International 'free' radio station broadcasting around the clock on the internet and also via our Shortwave and FM relay partners.


Laser Hot Hits was started by a group of dedicated radio enthusiasts.

Laser went on air Bank Holiday Monday 16th April 1990 on VHF in stereo on 101 MHz to the home counties. Broadcasts continued on most weekends. Frequency moves were made when Classic FM started but broadcasts were less frequent in 1992. In 1993 Laser merged with staff from the former Hits FM to emerge the reborn, bigger Laser Hot Hits that we know today. Our first broadcast in London was on 23rd May 1993 on 105.6MHz in the FM band. Broadcasts then continued regularly at weekends until l3th February 1994 when additional broadcasts were added in the 49 metre shortwave band on 6220kHz which became our main shortwave frequency for the next 12 years. Various frequency moves were then made over the next two years on FM. Also, on the shortwave bands, other frequencies were utilised by the use of additional transmitters and relay facilities.

On the 7th December 1996 following the latest of many DTI raids on our FM facility, it was decided to discontinue the FM service and concentrate on the short wave service only. The power of our main 49 metre band transmitter was increased and we added an outlet in the 75 metre band. We also added relays in Ireland, Holland, the USA and Argentina. We later took the decision to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and were able to provide a successful consistent shortwave service on the 75, 49, 41 and 31 metre bands for over 12 years. Plans for the future include restoring services on 75 and 41 metres and to get more involvement and suggestions from our listeners. We are totally non-profit making, all funds to run the station coming from the members of our group.
