NordAM broadcast

Hi there, friends around the globe,

As it is only a few weeks to go till Christmas, we thought we could send you some warm vibes of well-choosen music through the magic of international airwaves. As you might remember, NordAM is a little free-radio project, broadcasting via Radio 700's transmitting station in Kall-Krekel, Germany.

In last June, we announced to take a break for about a year, so until we return fully restored next August (yep, we're talking of August 2013 which seems to be a very long time!) on the radio, we bring you a "light version" of NordAM, which will be a little bit shorter than usual and consist of less talk, but more music. We hope you will enjoy it!

Our broadcast will be on the air on December 16th 2012, 2230 UTC on 3955 kHz and probably also on 1593 kHz. We expect 3955 kHz to be audible in many parts of Europe and maybe beyond even, while 1593 kHz can currently only be heard in parts of Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium.

Furthermore, you can tune in via our Facebook page and at (click on "Play" on the right hand side and select 3955 kHz).

If you like, you can send us your thoughts and reception reports via email at nordam @ Probably there will be some QSL cards (in electronical or regular form) soon. :-)

We hope you will all enjoy some nice December days!

All the best,

Daniel and Torben (who cannot be part of the broadcast this time actually but sends his warmest greetings)

South Herts Radio to close

Gary Drew writes: "Just a little update for you regards Laser Hot Hits. Some Sunday's the webstream is relayed by Radio Blackbeard on 6266 KHz. Tests of Laser on other wavelengths will be carried out soon.

I am closing South Herts Radio at the end of the year. I have been running this hobby station for 5 and a half years and I want to start a new station later in 2013 trying something new. Plans are being made already and I hope to launch a new internet station with relays from the stream on FM and SW. I will be in partnership with others and I hope it will be on air '24/7' on-line with relays mostly on Sundays.

A new name is being considered and it will be registered for the domain on the web. I'm taking my time to get it right so it may be a good 9 months before it takes to the air so let's hope it's worth the wait."

SWR 7265 raid

Hallo zusammen,

wenn man davon ausgehen kann, dass der Spuk rund um die 7265 khz in den
 vergangen Wochen von einer Person ausging, dürfte das Ganze wohl nun erst
 einmal ein Ende gefunden haben. Ich habe läuten gehört, dass vor dem Haus
 desjenigen heute die freundlichen Herren von der BNetzA Aussenstelle Krefeld
 mit ihrem VW Bulli vor der Tür gestanden haben und weitere Aussendungen
 (fürs erste) unterbunden haben.

Alles weitere wird jetzt wohl der “Rechtsweg” klären, keine Ahnung, wie da
 Vorgehensweise und Strafen aussehen.

Wenn der Pirat jedenfalls so vorgegangen wäre wie heute morgen “Radio
 Scotland International” auf 6095 (der hat nämlich seine Sendezeit der von
 KBC angepasst, sodass man sich nicht ins Gehege kam), hätten ja vielleicht
 alle was davon gehabt. So wie jetzt war es nur ein Ärgernis für alle
 Beteiligten (inkl demjenigen, der die HHLR Sendungen gejammt hat und nun
 Ärger am Hals hat).

Info via A-DX via Achims Free Radio Desaster

I put this through Google translate:

Hi all,
If it can be assumed that the spook khz around 7265 in the past few weeks, was based on a person, the whole thing is probably only now come to an end. I hear ringing, that before the house day of that the friendly gentlemen by BNetzA outpost Krefeld stood with their VW bus at the door and hav more releases have stopped (for now).

Everything else is now probably clarify the "legal process", no idea how because Procedure and penalties look.

If the pirate would certainly be carried out such as this morning, "Radio Scotland International "in 6095 (the fact has its transmission time of the KBC customized so that you are not in the enclosure) came, had perhaps all of them had what. Just as now, it was just an annoyance for all
The person involved (including that has jammed the HHLR programs and now trouble at the neck has).

Can anyone confirm if the unofficial SWR relay on 7265 kHz has ended?

I wonder what the idea was behind this? Of course, once SWR was alerted to the fact that someone was running an unofficial shortwave relay of their station, its days were numbered!

Pirate broadcast of Sudwestrundfunk

SWR stopped broadcasts on 7265 kHz eight years ago but recently the station has been heard again on 7265 kHz.

Manuel Méndez of Lugo, Spain reports via the DX Listening Digest Yahoo group: "About the German station Südwestrundfunk SWR now on 7265 kHz Short Wave, that I picked it up 25th of November, this station has been out of the air since 2004 in this frequency. I send an e-mail in English to the Station to see if they confirm the come back to the air on Short Wave and here is the reply in German. Below is the English translation with the aid of Google translate."

Sehr geehrter Herr Méndez,
der SWR betreibt seit 2004 keinen Kurzwellensender mehr. Zudem besitzen wir für diese ehemalige SWR-Frequenz auch keine Lizenz mehr. Momentan wird aber unser SWR3-Programm auf der Frequenz 7265 kHz ohne unsere Erlaubnis unrechtmäßig ausgestrahlt. Die Bundesnetzagentur ist über diesen Umstand bereits informiert und wir prüfen, ob wir rechtliche Schritte gegen Unbekannt ergreifen.
Für weitere Fragen stehen wir gerne zur Verfügung.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Udo Merzig

Dear Mr. Méndez,
SWR operates since 2004 no more with the short-wave transmitter. In addition, we have this former SWR frequency without license. Currently, however, our SWR3 program is broadcast illegally on the 7265 kHz frequency without our permission. The German Federal Network Agency has been informed of this fact and we check if we can take legal action against the unknown people who are transmitting our program.
 For further questions please contact us.
 Sincerely yours
 Udo Merzig

(via Hard-Core DX mailing list)

Harald Khul adds on the BDXC Yahoo group: "Hamburger Lokalradio is testing on 6190 kHz and 7265 kHz. However, there was a jamming station trying to interfer with these tests. Also the program of Westdeutscher Rundfunk WDR4 has been used for deliberate jamming of Hamburger Lokalradio on 6190 kHz and 7265 kHz."

DeLuxe FM again on shortwave

On 24th of November, DeLuxe FM radio show on Ems-Vechte-Welle FM-radio, which was launched on 28th November 1997 on that radio station, will celebrate its 15th anniversary on air ! :-)
And forget the perfect worldwide internet live stream:
Let's return to the good old radio roots with static noise and fading - this special show will be on air on RADIO 700's short wave frequencies beside regular FM-broadcast on Ems-Vechte-Welle FM-radio:

Time: GMT (Germany: +1h):
14:00 - 15:00h: MW 1.593 kHz
15:00 - 16:00h: SW 6.085 kHz (49m)
16:00 - 17:00h: SW 6.005 kHz (49m)
17:00 - 18:00h: SW 3.955 kHz (75m)
19:03 - 20:00h: regulary on Ems-Vechte-Welle FM radio:


Up to 20.000 Watt are fired into atmosphere and depending on propagation and atmospheric condition, worlwide terrestrial reception should be possible with world receivers and SW-supporting car radios. Buy a world receiver or take grandpa's good old SW-supporting tube radio from the attic ! :-)
If you can't catch any terrestrial signal in your part of world, you can use ordinary internet stream in mp3-quality between 19:03 - 20:00h GMT-time (Germany: 20:03-21:00h).
In case you receive any signal, you should make a video and link it on following radio page:

A video with that reception from your part of world would be excellent ! :-) Good luck ! :-)
Fingers crossed for that unique experiment...! ;-)

Dozens of pirate radio raids

Dozens of raids against pirate radio broadcasters have been mounted in Islington and Hackney [London] this year but they have not stopped one frustrated listener from hearing pumping bass when he tries to tune into a classical station (photo).

Squads from government watchdog The Office of Communications (Ofcom), known as spectrum enforcement teams, have swooped on illegal stations 49 times since January.

Many are repeat offenders that have faced action time and again, including one known as Passion FM that has been targeted four times when transmitting from sites in the EC1 and N1 postcodes.
Ofcom said there were 40 raids in Islington, against 12 different stations, and nine operations in Hackney.

The figures were obtained by the Gazette following the trials of a reader who struggled to tune in to classical station BBC Radio Three.

Rinse FM celebrates 18th birthday

DJ Geeneus is remembering the first ever Rinse FM radio broadcast, as a pirate station, in September 1994. "One of my friends got their first flat, so we were like, Great, we'll stick the studio in the kitchen, 'cause you're not going to be using your kitchen that much… We was 18 floors up and we put the aerial out the balcony window, moved it around… And then the front door come flying off and some old geezer come flying in, screaming at us, going, 'My telly!' He was watching the rugby and he could hear our radio station coming through his telly!"
