• The smallest distance via SP-E: 702 km, Fun Radio from Remiremont (FR) on 104.7 MHz


This could have been Fun Radio Belgique from Brussels with 5000 watts as well which is more usual for ES distance :!:
(except you heard .fr advertisings in stead of .be or you had a 100 % clear local ID jingle between the ad spots)

Both have almost the same opening angle, the low power from Vogese is on 347 degr. while BXL is on 343.
Regarding the directional ERP of 79 Watts , the belgian version is most likely the one which is common to receive.

Just from music and / or Fun Radio jingle those cannot be devided 100 percent.

Hi,

Yes, it was Fun Radio France, because this station was received on 104.7 MHz, and my local frequencies of Fun Radio were on 105.0 and 105.2 MHz, and it was the same program: Music + some adds, without RDS code. I can receive some french stations around 800 km - 900 km during openings to the north, it's often like that ;) .
