Unidentified 88.3

88.3- RDS is showing as "Modern". Sorry no PI code as I'm not at home. In via Sp-E I think.
Setup:

5 element roof mounted south facing
Vertical dipole loft mounted
4 element DAB towards Mendip
Sony STSB920 (unmodified)
RTL2832 SDR (SDR# and SDR-j)

Location: Fordingbridge, Hampshire

After having looked up each and every European country + Middle East, I would suggest it was either Italy or Greece. Spain is possible, too.
Any hint towards the opening direction or musical style of this station? The only one called so is located in Thailand, another one in Belize.
Russian "Radio Modern" is closed down since 2001. All in all, I think this is simply title+artist info from "Modern" / "Talking" / "You're" / "my heart"...

Radio Birikina, Heat Radio Alexandropoulis or Viva FM Katerini have artist+title on their RDS.

Thanks. I guessed it might have been a track/artist label. Was so fleetingly in, I couldn't get a language or musical style. The opening was towards the Balkans, so Greece seems possible.

at least it's not RAX (typical greek music) or NRG (top 40 / CHR).
