Zender Postoffice

Here is a message from Ronnie Rodent:

"I will soon be putting a station on air, called Zender Postoffice. For the moment it is online only, but hopefully soon it will be on SW and MW.

The website is

The first test transmissions will be on the 20th June 2010 at 18:00 UTC (19:00 UK time), online only. The stream will be opened with silence before hand so you can listen to the very beginning. There is a time delay of about 1 minute on the stream, so the audio may not start until 18:01 UTC. Please send us reports by email to to let us know how the stream went, and we will send you a QSL, either by email or post, which is up to you.

After that will be the proper launch online. The date and time for this has not yet been decided, it depends how the tests go, but it will probably be on a Sunday evening.

After the launch, broadcasts will not be at any specific time, but most live broadcasts will be on Sunday evenings. Pre-recorded shows could be played at any time, most likely weeekends and maybe weekday evenings.

If you would like to get involved, please send an email to zenderpost (at)

What a strange name!

Hi Anonymous,

The reason for the name is because the general post office (GPO) used to raid pirate stations in the UK... there was a station called Radio Eric (named after Eric Gotts from the DTI), and now there is a station in London called Ofcom.

I see the point. Yet I think the nixture of Dutch and English sounds a bit odd. But after all, it is just a name. The programmes are more important.

Having said that, I'm glad you didn't call your project Radio Caroline or Radio Mi Amigo.
