Fantasy FM Netherlands

Post by BlackBeard » Sat Jul 02, 2022 11:20 pm

I made a very nice catch today (02.07.22/22:15) on the vhf band. I received Fanatsy FM on 108 MHz in the Netherlands, near Maasvlakte beach!

PS: Fantasy!
RT: Dit is Fantasy FM op de rand van de band Welkom bij Fantasy FM.

Pretty sure that it's a pirate, no jingle, no moderation and 108 MHz is just on the edge of the band (that's what the RT says). Also, they played gabber and trance nonstop but without really mixing. Checked Fmscan.org, no results on 108! Also checked Google, no website or social media that fits the music (no licensed station named Fantasy FM). RDS came in after a while but my car radio lost the RT again. I have everything on video, I'll upload it!

108 MHz isn't a good choice - half the modulation is outside the band, so the authorities will take more interest than usual!

PS: For English readers, the Radiotext says "This is Fantasy FM on the edge of the band. Welcome to Fantasy FM"
"Why is my rig humming?"
"Because it doesn't know the words!"
