Ramadan RSL 87.7

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 15 May 2019 10:24

I doubt there will be any chance of me finding out who this is, but I am hearing a very weak Asian station on 87.7 in the general direction of west ... and possible slightly to the north-west, so possibly Sheffield/Leeds/Bradford area. Without a web parallel I won't be able to find out who this is and I cannot find much in the way of live Ramadan web streams.

There's also something very very weak on 87.7 when I beam north-west.

Yes it's RamadanFM. Based here in Sheffield I think.

Thanks CB.

Are there any other Ramadans nearby on 87.7? i.e. Leeds, Bradford, etc. I don't know for sure that it's the Sheffield station I am receiving, but since I have already received Sheffield's Ramadan, there may be a good chance that it is this time.
