1584 Radio Oberfranken

Post by Brookman Spark » 11 Feb 2018 22:50

Heard again this evening after 2200. German schlager plus folk music of the south of Germany that wouldn't sound out of place on a Swiss German station. Recorded announcements with the station name and "we will soon begin our regular programmes".

Best received on the Ticino Switz KiwiSDR but with all the other stuff on the channel it can be a challenge. Ticino is a fair way south of the Oberfranken region of Germany but of course skywaves are a funny thing.

When I checked for it earlier, about 2000, it wasn't heard and Free Radio from Italy was dominating.

very strange project, never heard of this. if they own any license yet, we should have read about it on German forums.
seems to belong to Bayreuth-Bamberg-Coburg-Kulmbach-Hof local FM network according to google?!

google warns regarding their HP:

I wonder if it's a German station broadcasting from abroad; the first time I've received, the signal was very strong and definitely fading-less.... 8-)

Anyway, we only have to wait for a bit until they will be able to start regular broadcasting.

At least they say it's German (but not "Germany based"). Dialect is a strictly pronounced lower German, no Bavarian or Franconian. Signal was quite strong the last two days, but only present a few minutes every hour with about 4 other px in the back. They air a mixture of German schlager, alpine volksmusik and newer German music (Ich und ich) with three different announcements by a female voice with slight echoes in between. S=3-4 but O=1-2. Panjab is very annoying. However, no news upon that is listed either on mediumwave.info, google or MWLIST. Heard the same music (even the same songs) yesterday but then without any ID in between. Regarding their website it belongs to Funkhaus Bamberg.
