Monday May 29

It might have been a holiday in the UK but I had to work so no time for listening til later on. That mysterious station on 6284 was back again @ 1630 with non-stop music. Let's have an ID, chaps - put us out of our misery. Blasting in here in the evening.

Then on 6298 @ 2020 was the Scandinavian station Fox 48 with a 34333 SINPO. I've heard him better. Still on now as I type @ 2145 but suffering QRM from Paradox Radio, with a stronger signal, from the UK on 6300.

It sounds like Ireland Radio with
an e-mail address of irelandradio@rock.com with an Irish voice.

As the station is thought to be from Ireland, I too thought it could be Ireland Radio but I've not caught an ID yet. I'll listen to achim's audio file and see if that offers any clues.

That e-mail address doesn't work, a friend did a test.

This would be Island Radio.It was on air for a short period up to early 2005 on 6260 KHz.The tests recently have been in order to assess the new TX site and equipment and frequency.There will be some limited live programs over the next couple of weeks,and the TXs may also be used for relays.

Yes, I remember Island Radio. That would make sense. Thanks, anon.
