With an e-mail to Info(at)LoostadRadio.nl, I got an e-mail confirmation shortly after.The distance between the transmitter and my hometown is 263 km.
The name of the station says it, here you just hear David Bowie music. The station was in the air in the 75 m band. But the reception was not good in my location.

Here is a mp3 recording with that broadcast in MFSK-32: David Bowie Radio 3975 kHz.mp3. The address of Radio David Bowie is: davidbowieradio(at)ndex.com.
