FM-DX 2015 in Ruovesi part 15

On the best FM-DX day of the summer 2015, 8th of July, the conditions moved still more westwards after about 08:30 UTC. The French and Benelux -stations with some stations in the most western part of  Germany popped up on various frequencies. One newbie for me was Sublime FM from Utrecht, Netherlands, on 88.9. The station had ‘Sublime News’ at 08:30 UTC and thus easily identified. This time I used a feedback form at their website for reporting and Angela from the station quickly replied via eMail: “Great to hear you are able to pick up our FM signal in Finland. I can confirm it’s indeed our station.”

It is always pleasure to catch regional German stations with local programming. This time I was lucky to receive NDR 1 Niedersachsen’s ‘Studio Oldenburg’  -program on 91.1. Ms. Anne Brauns from the Studio Oldenburg was kind enough to send an eMail (staff photo attached) and confirm my reception. She commented: “It is nice to learn that our programme is heard in Finland, too. About ten years ago, we already had a letter from a Finn who heard NDR 1 Niedersachsen. Probably, it was the same phenomena.

The conditions seemed to fade away some minutes after 08:30, but … Well, it was not over yet. After a pause of nearly 2 hours, the MUF started to raise again, and new round started, this time from Odessa, Ukraine. More of that in the following posts …
