Later in the night when I arrive home there was a pleasant surprise in my recording. A few minutes after 7 o´clock BBC R 3 came in and a little bit later I heard a commercial with ph nr indicating Dorset. The station went away but only to reappear 2 minutes later with a nice ID as "Forest FM" by the announcer Laura Jerome.
The station is a small non-profit community Radio Station in Verwood, Dorset staffed primarily by volunteers. With the low power of only 25Watts, this is my best FM catch from England.
Station Mgr Steve Saville answered my reception report and he´s a former FMDXer!! Heres what he wrote:
Thank you for your email.
I must admit I have been a DX'er in the past and I have often heard Swedish stations on FM here in the UK during Sporadic E sessions. Also Spanish and Eastern European stations. We also get French radio and TV regularly via tropospheric lifts.
We are in Verwood in the South of England.
I can confirm your reception report for 08-07-2011 - thank you for the recording, it was very interesting to hear. Typical Sporadic E I think !
I mentioned it on the breakfast programme this morning and I have attached the recording. I hope you enjoy it.
We will send a sticker and flyer in the post.
Steve Saville - station manager
Many thanks Steve for the QSL and here´s the recording from the Morning show:
