Greek pblic TV was forced to close

Jun, 12 Due to lack of time during the last days I attended my first 2013'Sp-E on July 12th. Quite late. I tuned in in the evening and the propagation kept me until midnight. All the attractions payed off well for the delayed personal start this year. There were:

Some Spain...
88,8 - "La voz en el desierto" "Ochenta ocho punto ocho FM"
- found out it was Radio Zoe, not listed - Madrid (2300km). A small, social, i guess religeous station. Heard with talks in studio, indirect ids: www.radiozoe.net About 260 likes on Facebook.



Some Greece, although without public stations. It was announded today that all Greek public B'cast - both radio & TV was taken off air. Some interesting picks thou:
90,4 - terrible sounding station, do they feed their signal via phonecall?
91,4 - R. Lihnari
93,2 - Orange (Athens)
95,2 - Athens Deejay
88,9 - Athens Freedom
...plus many other of Athens commercial stations, except my fav 92,6 Best FM. Did they went off air too? I heard that some stations did so, as a support for ERA's fate. Best92.6's stream is down, sadly.
87,2 (below 87,5!) - Greek singing
87,6 - R. Ikaria
89,7 - ERA AGAIOU - id by RDS - talks in studio - the only active ERA station tonight?

+92,5 unid strange arab singing, EGY?





Jun, 17 Today's Sporadic E swept areas of easternmostbanks of the Mediterranean, called Levant. There's plenty of war and political stuff goin' on over there, that's why some stations were like directly serving some diplomacy.

94,5 - English language program abt Syria. There's a station located in Lebanon on this frequency, Radio One, whose programming is aimed at Syria. I heard: "President Assad wants us to think that the only alternative to him is extremism and violence". Quickly swapped by Israeli radio Reshet Bet.

94,3 - Holy Quran, unid

90,1 - Sawt Al Hurriya, Voice of Freedom, LBN.
89,5 - unid arab. singing, then talks, poor & quiet modulation
88,6 - featuring classic & jazz music from Europe - Syria?!!!

102,3 // 102,5 arab = LBN, arab music surrounding my LOC station
99,3 - LBN, RDS PI F135, new TX for Radio Al-Tawhid Islami
92,9 - LBN, Sawt Al Mada, arab pop shows & mx

98,0 - R. Shema
88,5 - AkRa
105,8 - Semerkand




Jun, 19 Some nostalgia came with today's Sp=E. It was Barcelona, which i reconnected to after staying and acquainting radiostations there for couple of days in April.
87,7 - RAC1
88,3 - RNE1
88,7 - Radio RM with full RDS sayng "ANEM AMB TU" - "We're with you"
88,9 - R.Maria


89,1 - R.Marca
90,5 - M80RADIO

but catalan station came not only from Barcelona:
89,9 - COPE Catalunya & Andorra
90,4 - Flaixbac
103,9 - Flaixbac

Then suddenly I stumbled upon a strange language on 91,5. With the opening towards Spain I thought it was maybe Portugese, or some iberic dialect, but...! Russian adverts also aired on 91,5. -Wow! Bolgar Radiosy Kazan, Tatarstan - Russia! I was totally surprised with this, if I were prepared, I would tune 88,3 and try to check if my Russian fav - Silver Rain Radio was there (also from Kazan).
