102.9 Is the frequency there thinking of, can't say much more on this.
102.9 is used by East Coast FM and it can be heard clearly in some parts of Dublin.

Apparently spektrumradio.ie are due to launch on FM in Dublin, according to their FB page.
Spektrum have been saying that for some months now. I have not heard any tests broadcasts from them, so this may be a pipe dream. It would however be mildly amusing from an anorak perspective if they appeared on 105.2.

Maybe I'm missing the point but why would it be amusing?
Anyway Soulcity are on 105.2 and getting out a good way. Only free frequencies in Dublin (that never get temps) are 92.0 and 93.2. Others are free but would suffer from interference in certain parts.

Because the predecessor to Phantom on 105.2 was called Spectrum. They even had an anorak hour every weekend where they would talk about all things radio, including band scans.

93.2 is the next best available frequency in my opinion. It has been used by pirates for years. It is squeezed between two stong RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta frequencies though. 88.1 and 94.3 are clear now but are often allocated to temps, but I'm not aware of any on the horizon. Not sure about anybody using 92.0 to be honest - there's a relay of Spirit Radio on 92.1.

Any RDS? Is it doing low power testing in west Dublin or do you just mean that's where you yourself are picking it up?

Probably the same station that has hopped from frequencies between 99.2 and 101.4 the last while that only broadcast at nights/on weekends.

Heat was either off or the signal was extremely weak in Dublin today.
Other stations I received were:
87.6 Chill FM
91.6 Phever
107.1 Trax
Pretty sure Soulcity were on the list, but not 100%. Energy also on 1395.

Is the Kiss on 102.9 the one that previously broadcast on 101.4? Or the one that can be heard in north Dublin from Meath.

It's the one that was on 101.4 much stronger signal now.

Probably safe enough to take SoulCity off the list, usually when they're off FM their stream is up, but it has now been taken down. Didn't last as long as they did last year. Shame.
