105.9 UNID Albanian talk

Post by Nick Gilly »

This was received on July 12th on 105.9 during an opening to the Balkans:

The only station listed from Albania on 105.9 is Club FM, but aren't they a pop station? This sounds like a discussion on a news programme. Could it be Radio Zëri I Pozheranit from Kosovo? This station doesn't stream so there was no way to check.

There are a couple of other signals that sometimes interrupt the talk station. One is loud overmodulated pop, and I'm wondering whether that is Club FM.

As always, any help very much appreciated.

Thanks.
Good DX.

this is maltese language not albanian!
it has strong arabic influence and some italian words in it.

the word "hafna" is always a clue for maltese even for those who do not understand a word of it.

Aha! Thanks PFM. I did receive Tunisia on 97.4 about 20 minutes previous to this, but a lot of signals were coming in from the Balkans. Both Albanian and Maltese sort of sound like a blend of exotic and Italian, and I assumed it was Albanian because of the other signals being received.

It will be Radju Malta 2 from Għargħur.
Good DX.
