I cant confirm if they were or not, I didnt hear them yesterday, but I just presumed I was too far away. I didnt try listening in to them today as I was busy listening in to the preperations for the torch arriving here in Stoke.

That's a bit disappointing, I had hoped the BBMF would be authentic and use the frequencies that the RAF used to use during the war 8)

Apparently Bomber Command used to be on 103.86 megacycles

Reds 243.450

The scanning directory you mentioned is over 7 years out of date. Dont rely on freqs in it being used today.
