mi amigo test shortwave

Recommended Posts

Always trying to find new ways of reaching new SW audiences both in- and outside Europe, this month we are conducting a series of test transmissions from within the USA.

Last December we had a successful 125 kW broadcast from Germany aimed at North America. Reception reports came in from all over the USA but also from many South American countries such as Mexico and Brazil.


This month we will do 3 test broadcasts from inside North America, from the small town of Monticello in the northern US state of Maine, very close to the Canadian border. We'll use the two 50 kW transmitters from SW station WBCQ, which is run by a dedicated team of radio enthusiasts for the benefit of the listeners.


There's also a link with European Offshore radio since one of the leading figures behind WBCQ is Al Weiner, who worked for Radio Caroline on the Ross Revenge in 1985 and later went on to start his own offshore station Radio New York International (RNYI) from the M.V. Sarah in 1987.

The test transmissions (music, station ID's and info) will be held on:


·  Sunday, February 12 on 7490 kHz 21:00 - 22:00 hrs UTC  (4 - 5 pm EST local time)

·  Thursday, February 16 on 7490 kHz 01:00 - 02:00 hrs UTC (Wed. Feb. 15, 8 - 9 pm EST local)

·  Saturday, February 18 on 9330 kHz 21:00 - 22:00 hrs UTC  (4 - 5 pm EST local time)

      In de maand augustus besteden we op NH in onze serie Honderd Jaar Radio 4 weken aandacht aan de zeezenders.
      Het meest afgegraasde deel van de radiogeschiedenis. We hebben het gemaakt in de wetenschap dat veel luisteraars de geschiedenis al goed kennen. Om die reden hebben we gezocht naar fragmenten die je niet vaak hoort. Geen Laatste Uur, ook verder zo min mogelijk 'usual suspects' en waar mogelijk middengolf in plaats van de bij verzamelaars bekende studiobanden.
      In de eerste aflevering wel vooral veel studiobanden, omdat er nog weinig van de radio werd opgenomen. Het studiomateriaal komt zoals gemeld uit mijn eigen archief, het was sympathiek geweest als ik even om toestemming had gevraagd. Deze 'dispensatie' heeft Juul - gelukkig maar - in tweede instantie alsnog verleend.

      Plezier ermee.
