A couple more Dutch MW logs via Twente

A few logs via the Twente web receiver:

1611, 2/7, *1615+ Modern dance music, into schlager. Played some short segments of various more modern pop or rock songs, including George Thorogood "Bad to the Bone" around 1645 or so, then into much older schlager songs. Audio very strong, but not distorted

1629, 2/7, 1600-1635* instrumental & vocal schlager songs, male announcer in Dutch. Announcement & off after an older instrumental schlager song. A song or two sounded like calliope music. Good signal, but some interference from a data station on about 1622-1624. Someone on the chat said "1629 Edel," so maybe Radio Edelkampioen?

Dolfijn Radio (?): 1629, 2/7, 1955+ Calliope-sounding music & schlager. I think one song was The Mavericks "All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down." On the pirate chat, a listener mentioned ID as Dolfijn, but I only heard talk from a male announcer at about 2030. Not sure about the ID because I have a tough time understanding anything in Dutch (and a lot of other languages :o)

Follow up to 1/30 logs

I received an e-mail from Ray about my 1645 kHz log on the Twente receiver. Yup, it was not Misti Radio, but rather someone playing a song for Misti. Here's the e-mail:

Your station on 1645 kHz logged at 1650 utc on Jan 30th is not Misti Radio, but Zender Concorde, playing hard rock, including German rock.

You can hear it again through the site of achimbrueckner, with a recording beginning at 1641 utc (after two shorter ones of the same station). That is a very good recording, just a bit of noise. At about 11min42sec, the DJ says "OK Misti..." and more in Dutch, agreeing about a request for a record from Rainbow. Then playing that record, I think (I don't know really that rock group).

I did not hear an ID of the station, but I'm pretty sure that Achim could not be wrong on such a good reception.

Many thanks to Ray for the clarification and research!
