I do not find anything that fits in AUT / SUI / SVN / HNG / HRV / SRB / BIH / BUL / ALB / MKD / GRC...
ALG is only listed on low power, TUN runs commercial stations only, LBY / LBN / EGY / CYP has none, MRC / TUR does not fit.

Can Syria (150 kW ) can be excluded for sure? What else could that be? I have also been looking up open radios and non-commercial ones, but none of them seems to be the perfect solution. 9th of June was still Ramadan, keep that in mind.

Syria is a possibility?

It was quite a strong signal and lasted (on and off) for around 20 minutes.

There was no detectable RDS data stream: http://www.apritch.co.uk/temp/UNID_92_2.png

I think it might be Radio 1 Albania from Mide/northern Albania. This would appear to be a radio station for the Muslim community in Albania. According to FMLIST the PS name for the 92.2 tx is RADIO_1_ RAMADANI. That would fit the conditions at the time as well.
Good DX.

yes, this seems to be a logical option. But there is a little doubt, as 92.2 MHz is not officially listed by Radio 1 Tirana itself or the responsible ministry which is operated by the Albanian government. I thought, Radio 1 "unique like you" (http://www.radio1.al/) was a hit music station, but I might have confused that with Radio One "music from all times" (http://www.radioone.al/) and it might be indeed a special ramadan broadcast.

Referring to FB (https://www.facebook.com/pg/Radio1-4921 ... e_internal) it is an "educational, religious radio". However, according to AMA (Albanian Media Authority), Radio 1 is only using 93.2 MHz from lower Mount Dajti transmission site with an estimated radiation power between 1 and 2 k.watts and is not licensed to any other frequency, especially as 92.2 FM is not listed neither on their HP nor on FB.

The first of your links, http://radio1.al/ is the religious station. According to FMLIST:

L BS -308 92.2 5 ALB shk @ Radio 1 Mide 19°58'24E 42°06'46N 1906 114 sq s v 1672 50 RADIO_1_ RAMADANI 9677 Location unknown but is North Albania according to radio1 website

That looks like the religious service.
Good DX.

yes, u r right. have found this information on the "rresh nesh" site (=about us)
Radio 1 started broadcasting in July 2013. It emits the frequencies 93.2 from Tirana to South of Albania and 92.2 to the North.
In April 2014 radio 1 was transferred to the new studio which is located at Rr. Hymen Kolli, palace No. 8, near Kavaja Street, Tirana.

The goal of the initiators has been and will remain:

• Presenting the best values ​​of human society.
• Identifying social problems and introducing alternatives for their solution in the perspective of more perfect ideas and principles.
• Promoting a social spirit where the referral point from money to principle is shifted.
• Provide a living model where material and spirituality are in complete harmony.
• Promote every individual who contributes to the good of society.
• Make public, audio, analysis and writing available to anyone who wants the benefit of this country, an integral part of which we are all.
• Provide another entertainment model, far from vulgarity and banality.
• Considering the needs of all age groups and layers in designing the program.
• Expanding the space covered by the signal, in accordance with the rules established by the relevant bodies.
