That doesn't sound Dutch on 107.9. The usual Dutch station there is VBRO. They play Dutch music, so it's not them.

Nice one! A bit of Denmark appearing now. Rangstrup only so far. Not quite noise free but it's stable. Will post an alert.

DAB has gone crazy! French, Dutch, German and even Norwegian stations are listed, although NRK isn’t strong enough for audio.

this must be 1LIVE or Eins Live by WDR with the new overnight program "Die Junge Nacht der ARD"

https://www1.wdr.de/radio/1live/magazin ... d-100.html
http://www.ard.de/home/die-ard/presse-k ... index.html

transmitters is Langenberg-Hordtberg and Muenster-Baumberge, for sure. they have ads once an hour at :54 (daytime only)

of course, you should also loook out for 105.5 Detmold-Bielstein and 106.4 Aachen-Stolberg during that. ERP is 70 and 25 kW

Achterhoek FM could also be a solution with both frequencies in use at Lochem. I have missed that one out but the music and the ID does not sound anything like that. and this station runs on low Power (1 and 0.4 kW). maybe you heard both, NL first, after that WDR

Do you check out the online tropo forecasts?
F5LEN seems to be the preferred site

It helps give an idea what's going on and why.
Often you'll find that the weather in the middle of the reception path is more important than the weather at your location.

You live in a really excellent location with enormous potential for great DX all the way to Russia(Kaliningrad).

The tropo forecasts will let you get the most out of your excellent location.
Good DX
