Radio Six to return to shortwave

Effective August 11th, Scotland’s only independent international broadcaster, Radio Six International, returns to shortwave with a resumption of its Saturday morning broadcast on 9290 kHz beamed to Europe, the Far East and Pacific regions.

The programme – transmitted every Saturday between 0700 and 0800 GMT – will be relayed from the 100 kW facility at Ulbroka, Latvia as well as from the 2.7 kW medium wave transmitter on 945 kHz in Riga, Latvia.

The station has recently expressed reservations about the effectiveness of short wave transmissions, and is available 24 hours a day on the internet at as well as via satellite and FM in various parts of the world at certain times of day.

The shortwave and MW transmissions will continue until the end of September, when the situation will be reviewed.

Not a proper free-radio station

Occasionally I might include stations that aren't strictly free radio. The majority are though.

Scotlands ONLY international broadcasting station will be on the air as usual this weekend on 6400 and 3945 for the full broadcast. This is to avoid problems with the Dutchies around 3910.
