Horizon FM Tenerife on shortwave
It has been logged on 5780 kHz and reported is using 75W but planning to increase this to 1 kW.
On the BDXC Yahoo group Mike Barraclough reports: "Hans Johnson has been in telephone contact with Horizon FM and they insist that the transmission is from north part of Tenerife. They carry Horizon FM from Friday evening until 1000 Sunday and then Atlantis FM till 2200. (Mauno Ritola, Feb 16, Cumbre DX Facebook group)."
The station also announces on its English-language website, Twitter and Facebook pages that it is using 102.5/104.5 FM and 5780 kHz.
You can see photos from the station on the Maresme DX blog.
But some people are asking whether it really is coming from the Canaries or from a pirate station in the UK or Ireland rebroadcasting the internet feed. There's more discussion on Garry Steven's free radio board.
Anyway, it all adds to the mystery!
