The list is about a third of the stations heard during the two-hour opening and represents those that I could ID. There was so much to listen to (multiple stations on each frequency) that I did not get further than 94.7 progressing up the FM band.

The two unidentified RDS codes may be second/third windows of R-SEVER's RDS encoding. I don't know.

Radio is so mysterious! I cannot receive a hint of 'Smooth FM' whose 500w tx is 21km away from me http://www.smoothfmlive.net/index.php/1 ... as-arrived but I can hear stations from Germany in stereo on a good day!

R-SEVER was particularly strong with a stereo RDS signal for almost two hours continuously. Crazy DX! And the sky was very cloudy from a terrible storm that had passed through the region (floods killed two people) earlier in the day.
