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)

      Russ Conway – Alley Cat. Hij werd geboren als Trevor Herbert Stanford en werd in 1955, pianospelend in een pub, ontdekt door iemand van de platenmaatschappij Columbia. Als Russ Conway had hij alleen al 20 hits in de Britse hitlijst tussen 1957 n 1963. Daar hoorde Alley Cat echter niet bij. De uitvoering van Bent Fabric op piano ging hem voor, terwijl Peggy Lee een prachtige vocale uitvoering zong. Maar ‘Alley Cat’ van Russ Conway werd gebruikt als eindtune van het programma ‘Mosterd na de Maaltijd’ met Michelle op Radio Mi Amigo in 1975.
      Russ Conway - Alley Cat. Born Trevor Herbert Stanford, he was discovered in 1955, playing the piano in a pub, by someone from the record company Columbia. As Russ Conway he had 20 hits in the British charts alone between 1957 and 1963. Alley Cat, however, was not one of them. The performance of Bent Fabric on piano preceded him, while Peggy Lee sang a beautiful vocal performance. But Russ Conway's 'Alley Cat' was used as the final tune of the programme 'Mosterd na de Maaltijd' with Michelle on Radio Mi Amigo in 1975.

      10CC – Somewhere in Hollywood. Dit mooie symfonische nummer is gecomponeerd door Godley en Creme voor 10CC en is afkomstig van de lp Sheet Music. In de zeezendertijd van Veronica werd er door Lex Harding een spot op ingesproken waarin hij vertelde dat het gedrukte exemplaar van de Top 40 voor je klaar lag bij je favoriete platenhandelaar.  Opmerkelijk is dat de spot in het najaar van 1974 ook op Radio Mi Amigo was te horen. Immers werd toen enige tijd de Top 40 wekelijks via dat station uitgezonden.
      10CC - Somewhere in Hollywood. This beautiful symphonic song is composed by Godley and Creme for 10CC and comes from the album Sheet Music. During Veronica's time at sea, Lex Harding recorded a spot on it in which he said that the printed copy of the Top 40 was waiting for you at your favourite record dealer.  Remarkable is that the spot in the autumn of 1974 was also on Radio Mi Amigo to hear. After all, for some time the Top 40 was broadcast weekly through that station.
