87.5 FM is the first radio broadcast frequency that can be used on the FM band 87.5-108 or VHF Band 2. The use of 87.5 FM as the main carrier frequency of a legal radio station itself is rare in most countries as it transmits signals slightly out of band down to roughly 87.3 and possibly as low as 87.2 close to the transmitter.
For example, in the United Kingdom, radio stations broadcasting on 87.5 FM are almost guaranteed to be pirate radio stations as there are no known current licences that have been allocated on 87.5 FM in the UK. The first licences only a small number in quantity start at 87.6 FM but most are on 87.7 FM. Stations listed so far that use 87.5 FM are:
- 87.5 FM1 (DWFO) in Metro Manila: Began test broadcast from November 1, 2017. The Philippine Broadcasting Service had long been desired to use the frequency for an FM station in the area. Prior to PBS's acquisition, the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas already asked the National Telecommunications Commission to reserve the said frequency to local campuses due to multiple reports that some others will use the latter frequency for commercial purposes.
- TKO FM 87.5 Costa Blanca
