On 17/08/2017 I was parked in the car at Barravakeen N52.325268 W007.6384699 at 12:30UTC and did a manual scan on band2. I stopped on 88.1MHz which had a very weak BBC Radio 2 probably for North Hessary Tor in Devon not usually heard here because of the Comeragh mountains. However Radio 2 faded out at 12:36
I noticed a PS on the display _RUV_R2_

Forgot to mention in previous post that the country was Iceland and a friend of mine in Dungarvan Co. Waterford also had an Icelandic station K100 on 100.5 not sure of the exact date but it was last week.

Hi John.

Your Box audio link doesn't work. Copying the 'Share' link should do it,
Good DX.
