FM Bandscan from Houlgate, Normandy

Post by Julian Hardstone »

A family gathering drew me from the comforts of home, out to a caravan rented on le Camping La Vallée near Houlgate. I cycled from the ferry, travelling light with a pocket-size L-M-S-VHF analogue radio, but the family car had an excellent RDS radio with adaptive filtering. To my delight it rained every day so the others sat in the caravan more than they went out and I was able to complete a careful bandscan under very flat condx.

The band was quite full of local stations, plus Hessary, Rowridge and Wrotham from southern England. Unidentified on 95.9, 106.7

This FM scan is quite similar as mine, as Houlgate is near my home :-)

95.9 = "Ouest Track Radio" ; this is a local temporary FM radio in Le Havre. Will broadcast until nov '17. But it want to have a permanent license in the future. Power = 20W (!)
DX-FM & DX-TV in Normandy, France : Portenseigne 910 03 02 & Wisi EB-66 on Yaesu G450C.
On my personal website :
