Sun July 30

Almost a total fade out on 48 metres first thing with only Laser just about audible on 6220/6274 - no Dutch stations at all @ 0745. The situation didn't improve until mid-morning when more stations began to appear. Only signals from Ireland seemed to be making the skip.

Premier Radio Int was heard on 6265 @ 0820 playing the Human League and Dire Straits. 34333 SINPO.

Radio Paardenkracht was on 6325 @ 0845 playing schlager. SINPO 34433, improved later in the morning. Gave out email address of

Radio Valencia was on 6308 @ 1000 with schlager and announcements in English and Dutch. Conditions now beginning to pick-up. SINPO 44433.

Delta Radio (Gelderland) was on 6305 @ 1030 playing dance music. SINPO 44433.

A station I haven't heard for a few months, Radio Atlantis, was on 6300 playing dance music. SINPO 33433.

Radio Boomerang was on 6293 @ 1115 with a short broadcast, playing "Good Vibrations," then ID in Dutch. 43433.

The Bogusman with his reflections on life and alternative music was on 6266 @ 1140 with a 44433 SINPO. Back again in the evening, heard at 2035 on the same frequency playing Suede and talking about art galleries. Good signal - 44444.

Radio Mazda was on 6290 @ 1230 with schlager and polka and giving out the phone number. 43433.

I was out for the rest of the afternoon. When I returned switched on and heard a station on 6303 @ 1900. Unfortunately suffering strong SSB QRM and splash from Reflections Europe on 6295. Probably Dutch (32432).

Could ID the station on 6266 with your blog. Listened about one hour to the BOGUSMAN without understanding any ID, but some phrases of that talking station.Long time ago, had such a strong signal of a UK station here on my place in Germany.

Bogusman does not give many IDs but he will mention himself during his long talks, such as "What do you think of that, Bogusman?"
