Default Re: DX FM reception.

My Woolworths FM (also DAB-capable) radio was showing an RDS-derived station ident of " ONDAANRO " when I went into the workshop earlier; I'd left it tuned to 106.0 MHz but internet searching hasn't yielded anything I wasn't around to listen so can't say what language etc.

Must try harder ... especially since I'd recently cleaned/overhauled the Fuba Stereo 8 antenna!

More strong FM SpE DX this afternoon - Spanish language. Indeed there was Spanish language SpE yesterday, but not as strong.

I heard some more FM DX signals up to around 104 MHz this afternoon, continuing past seven this evening. Arabic speaking stations were pretty strong at times, although most stations were Spanish language broadcasts. I thought I heard the word Canarias on one station.
