On Aug.,8th. I experienced a slow spanish pop song with very loud modulation suddenly popping up on 98.4 FM while a local transmitter on 98.5 was off.
After a bit of research I found out this was Lo que nos mantiene unidos by Amaral.
This fits totally to the Soft AC style of Cadena DIAL and is also listed there to be frequently aired: http://www.cadenadial.com/artistas/amaral
The reception was possible only for ~40 seconds and there was NONE sporadic-e or aurora propagation at the same time. Audio was like tropo sc. with few fade and sometimes very good mono.
Cadena DIAL has verified that this song was indeed their output around 11:05 CEST the other day on all their national FM network frequencies.
Unfortunately, there are three possibilities of origin according to FMLIST and there was no local jingle or any ad in my recording.
In fact, I only heard a few lines of that song which was enough to enter the lyrics into google. All of them TX are common catches in GER.

Maybe someone else has experienced meteor scatter from Spain the other day around lunchtime? The angle and distance does not vary, all of them in the Catalunya / València region.
A very nice information at least: Few years ago, I was able to pick up Cadena 100 from València and Sí Ràdio from Benicàssim in Tyrol via airplane sc.
