Abu Dhabi Radio - Holland on 6318.5AM
« on: January 18, 2015, 0007 UTC »
Tuned in at 2352 and heard an ID in between music. Sounded like "Happy Zappy Radio, wherever you are." More music followed. Annoying RTTY on frequency. Weak but readable despite QRM. Moved to 6319AM.

2359 UTC, male announcer said: "I will play some nice songs..." followed by male vocals in solo. Am now using PBT on R8A to improve signal readability and move off frequency. Clear ID occurred at 0002 UTC: "Abu Dhabi Radio." Music "Spirit In The Sky" by Norman Greenbaum followed. Best reception on 6318.5AM with PBT on lower side of frequency.
