FM-DX 2015 in Ruovesi part 14
During the posting of these entries I have also done follow-up reporting, this time via Facebook.. One of the Italian stations received on the 8th of July 2015 replied quickly to my Facebook message. Radioblu is a big network in north-eastern Italy, and therefore frequently logged here. So far I hadn’t got it QSL’d. Now the confirmation was prompt and nice: “Yes we are !!! Thank you so much of your testimony, a hug to you and all the beautiful people in Finland!”. The frequency was 92.0 (Chiaravalle-tx).
Around 08:00 UTC on the 8th of July the FM Band was already full of Italian stations, but as mentioned in a previous post, some Austrian stations also managed to get through. On 92.4 I heard Radio Oberösterreich, which for some reason had evaded my antenna earlier. The Station Engineer Rudolf Mair sent confirmation via eMail and also a proper QSL-Card some days later. The Austrian national radio company ÖRF is one of the few stations still using QSL -cards. I really appreciate that!
Back to Italy. On 95.7 I logged Radio Studio Piu. It’s a dance station network covering northern Italy and Adriatic coast, and it has a transmitter also in Croatia (!). I reported the station via Facebook, and exceptionally I got the reply just after 2 months: “Yes, i can confirm that what you received in July, it was our radio station. The frequency 95.7 MHz is transmitted in region Marche in Italy. Thank you for your message and sorry for the late.”
After 08:30 UTC the 8th of July -conditions moved to France and Benelux. More of that in the next post …
