FM Bandscan in Gibraltar - 02/05/19

Receiving stations in Gibraltar during my stay there. Also plenty of Moroccan & Spanish stations.

I could have logged more but some stations were too close to each other to get a clear copy. An SDR would have been a better choice but no way I could carry this for a short trip. In any case the XHDATA D-808 did really well imo.

very nice. this makes tasty for appetizing up-coming ES season:)

89.6 presumed Canal San Roque Radio, San Roque, Spain
was certainly muted by youtube due to music? did you recognize MedRadio from Tanger in the background?
usually, you should be able to hear both and devide them by turning the device or / and antenna aerial.
it's only water in between and the local one from San Roque is not so strong.
93.3 ?
acc. to the chart music, this should be Los 40 Costa del Sol from Estepona (40 km away) but as well as 2M RADIO from Tanger in the background.
as I said, it's only water in between ...
when you come to 95.7 it is already another song on Los 40.
94.3 presumed Chada FM, Tanger, Morocco
yes it is. but why no Salvaje FM Campo de Gibraltar from El Pelayo del Andalus (13 km away) ?? was it off or is it too weak to reach you?
94.4 ?
Radio Oro ("Gold") from Marbella, Spain. it i oldie based AC style and the song is by Elvis from the late 50s or early 60s
96.0 ?
Radio Radio Network from Marbella Spain.
98.1 ?
RNE 2 Radio Clásica, Sierra de Mijas it is 60 .000 watts main transmitter for Andalucia area.

98.5 ?, Spain
CanalSurRadio Malaga from Marbella Spain-
99.0 ?, Spain
RTV Ceuta, Ceuta (spanish exclave in Maroc)
99.8 ?, Spain
RNE 2 Radio Tres, Sierra de Mijas 60 .000 watts main transmitter for Andalucia area.
102.2 ?
Cadena COPE Radio MArbella from Marbella Spain. it is mostly non-stop talk format but with few local musical shows and the bad audio is very remarkable for this network
104.3 ?, Spain
Radio Andalucia Informacion from Marbella Spain with futbol. you had the same later on 106.4 MHz , check out it is the same reporter voices
104.8 ?
HeartFM in english from Sierra de Mijas, Andalucia Spain

105.3 ?, Spain
EuropaFM 105.3 Costa del Sol from MArbella Spain. you just missed the local frequency jingle
107.3 ?
Cadena La Joven FM (the young frequency) from Linea de Concepcion borderline transmitting station
107.6 presumed Radio Casares, Casares, Spain
I guess this is rather RTV Marbella from Marbella, you heard lots of stations from there. sounds too professional for a small local, it is more regional.
plus Casares is behind a mountain range. Marbella is right across the sea in the north east from your location. it is only water in between.

nice afrobeat music on Capradio btw

Many thanks for the detailed investigation work & logging of missing stations. If I had more time for DXing there, then I might have ID'ed more of the stations but I did not.

89.6 was muted by me due to Youtube copyright notice. They were playing a song from Haddaway. Trust me, I was pointing the antenna in different directions towards Spain & Morocco, but as you can appreciate in the video the FM band is too overcrowded for some clear receptions.

Cadena COPE I am aware of their station format. I used to listen to them in the late 90s & early 2000s as they had the best football coverage on radio.

93.3 I would also say was Los 40 from Estepona, I have received this via Es here in the UK during previous seasons.

The frequency I listed as Casares must be a station from nearby, as the person speaking had an Andalusian accent.

Radio Andalucia Informacion had commentary for a bullfight, not a football match.

There's an AirSpy server located there, maybe you can try using that! It's shown in the wrong location on the map though (Ibiza).
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.
