What sense does it make to rebroadcast Gold on FM??
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.

Was this just a very localized signal ?

If so maybe someone who wants to hear the station on non-DAB+ receivers, or re-transmitting onto FM for reception within a building where reception is bad?
Just speculating
