I’ve ruled out RTE 2FM for your 91.8 by checking playlists

Seven hours of recording between 01:00 and 08:00 yielded only a handful of pings just reaching RDS levels.

Compared to previous years I'm not expecting much from this meteor shower - you just have to look at FMList over the last few years to see that MS results have gone down hill since 2016.

I logged a reasonable number of stations on the 13th with best activity in the morning from 0900 to 1000.

The early hours of the 14th from 00:30 to 01:40 (as far as I got with the files) were very active with 100-120 pings in the hour, but all but one of them was weak and well below RDS levels and under 1 second.

Tip: when subasio 87.5 comes in look for the church broadcast on 86.0
You can hear the carrier in cw

I have Shazam, but I think this was probably a mini-transmitter rather than MS.

B.Igic has downloaded my file, notched out Radio 3 during quiet passages and found meteor scatter underneath winter hill!
