97.9: That's "Radio Twee", the Dutch TWO. So VRT-2, Genk. Drie (dree, phonetically) is Dutch for three.
99.2: WDR-2, Langenberg. WDR2 ID at 59 seconds.
103.3 Cosmo, Langenberg. ID at 24 seconds.

The 8th was a good evening for German DX as I picked up a good few WDR stations including 88.8 and 104.7. I also got one on 103.8 but didn't manage to get an ID for it.

Well, considering you had Eins Live on 104.7 from Nordhelle, I'm going to take a guess that your 103.8 was WDR 4 from the same site. What were they playing?
Good DX.

Unfortunately I can't remember off the top of my head but it wasn't anything unusual.
