FM in December 2016 (in Canary islands, Spain)

A member of BDXC, John Hoad, based in Kent (in South East England), went to Lanzarote island (in Canary Islands, Spain) in last December.

He kindly allows me to introduce his scanned results on this blog.

(Lanzarote island)



According to Wikipedia, Lanzarote is the easternmost of the autonomous Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, approx. 125 kilometres off the coast of Africa and 1,000 kilometres from the Iberian Peninsula. Covering 845.94 square kilometres, it is the fourth-largest of the islands in the archipelago with 141,938 inhabitants,

It’s the third-most populous island of the Canary Islands, after Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

In the centre-west of the island is the Timanfaya National Park, which is one of the main attractions of Lanzarote, the capital is Arrecife.

He said he was able to hear lots of stations by his ATS-909X with its telescopic antenna, however, as he has little knowledge of Spanish, it was difficult to identify without RDS.

(My ATS-909X in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan)



On checking a log of a quick listen, he did on the afternoon of 18 December, found out the answer to his un-id on 102.5MHz.

It was Radio Europa Lanzarote, also on 99.4MHz at 1522 UTC, with ID and a song by Enya, in German //102.5 (Fuerteventura) weaker and 20 seconds ahead.
