DX Radio Can you identify this station?

I recorded this station at 1115 UTC on Monday November 29, 1999 when tuned to 87.7 MHz FM.

The tuner is a Sony SA3ES Hi-Fi tuner fitted with throughout with 110 kHz IF filters and the aerial is a Triax FM8 at about 10 meters above ground. The tuner could also therefore receive 87.75 MHz (channel A-6 tv audio) quite happily, but not 87.6 or 87.8 MHz. I was monitoring 87.7 MHz for meteor scatter pings, recording the audio for later playback. The tuner's RDS decoder IC is hooked up to a PC for automatic logging RDS data, but no RDS data was present during this reception. The audio recording was made on a Mac ... 16 bit, 11.025 kHz sampling in mono.

How can you help?

Please listen to the audio recording of the reception. I have made several versions in different formats. I'd be very interested in what you think you hear, and where you think the station (or stations) is broadcasting from.
