Re: UNID 6250 kHz...
I heard this station playing non-stop Queen tracks 07.45 UTC. It wasn't coming in too good then. I heard an ID that actually sounded (tentatively) like "Radio Queen" (which made sence at the time. Orion also mentioned Radio Queen on 6251 kHz during his earlier transmission, seemed to think it was from Italy (??). He said it was a new station to him, but I'm not sure where he got the info...?

I saw Achim on his blog had a tentative ID of Radio Queen. Signal not too good here.

I wonder if it is "Radio Free Italy" as there was a station of this name active a couple or so years ago.

Another thought, that station also id's as "Radio Friends of Italy". I am sure thay had a hotmail address.

Maybe thats what the guys says
