Found a programme about progressive rock a Tuesday at 2215 EST. On my old DR29 in my garage 🙂
Must be this station.
13th Nov 2017 14:30 UTC on North East Coast of England, clear signal on 6160 on BMW car radio, they are playing out http://www.markstafford.co.uk. The test is also Mark Stafford.
Weak signal on 6160 khz 500 km north of Stockholm in my barn on my old transistorradio with the metalroof as antenna…..
I just came across this station at 11:00UTC, Monday, 16 October, via the Twente SDR (cheating, as I’m in the USA), so they’re still going. I approve of their musical message!
Only heard it played on your post.But Ive tried on the frequency given but NO I have not been able to receive it here in New Zealand,South Pacific.
Definitly has a “UK” voice to it.Will listen from New Zealand and see if I can receive it.
And the short musical selection at the end was Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights. 🙂
Hi All, I think that the radio station is found!
Thanks to user Cap!
I will listen this weekend again to 6160.
