UNID Spain on 87.5 via tropo

Post by Nick Gilly » 04 Jan 2020 19:36

Hi all.

Can anyone ID this station please, logged during the recent tropo? I had logged Radio 4G on this channel during the lift, but they were playing music on each occasion. It could be them again, although this was all talk:

Clip 2: https://app.box.com/s/6ibxk4j91403x90sk446jhycvueckgfz

The tropo at the time was quite extensive from along the north coast of Spain, as far as the A Coruña area.

Thanks.
Good DX.

I have listened to both recordings & I cannot hear an ID. The first recording is talking about presumed light by electricity in ancient Egypt & people who are able to contact other dimensions. The second recording is about religion & science. I am not familiar with Radio 4G so I don't know if it is one of their programmes. I also tried checking the podcasts of other major stations in Spain like RNE, COPE, SER, with programmes that were on at that time & they did not match unless I was not looking properly.

Thanks for that. There are some talk programmes listed on Radio 4G's website that look like a match for that sort of content, so I'll presume it was them.
Good DX.

Just moved this topic to the FM Unids section as it was posted to the MW Unids.

It's likely to be 4G. They had as many as 5.000 listeners back in the 2nd EGM tracking period, now 28.000 - they've been undergoing sort of a crisis, lots of music is being played lately.
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.

Thanks guys. I've logged it as a presumed Radio 4G.

Thanks for moving the topic too John. I hadn't realised it had gone on the MW Unids!
Good DX.
