Radio Marconi Int to celebrate 30th anniversary with special broadcast

Marconi Radio International (MRI) began its shortwave transmissions on 4th   January 1986, with the aim of being a radio for DXers. That's why we have planned a special 30th anniversary broadcast on the following days and times:

3rd January 2016 from 07.00 to 16.00 UTC;
4th January 2026 from 13.00 to 16.00 UTC.

Our frequency remains the same: 11390 kHz and power in the region of 30 watts. To mark this milestone, we’ll broadcast a special programme in Italian with details on the history of MRI and interviews with two well known DXers of Italy: Dario Monferini and Roberto Scaglione.

Also our playlist will have something special as only songs with the word "radio" in their title will be played (the playlist  includes also some little known tunes like “Radio Tirana” by the Polish band Kult!).

But that is not all. In addition to our weekly DX programme in English "Italian Shortwave Panorama" and "Studio DX", produced and presented by Roberto Scaglione, we'll be airing  two vintage MRI programmes:  a DX Show in English of 25th December 1991 hosted by a female speaker, as well as the edition nr. 6  of "Italian Wave", a programme aired during  1986, which featured new Italian bands playing different kinds of rock music.

As usual MRI encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts  are welcome! We QSL 100% and of course a special 30th anniversary QSL verification will be sent to acknowledge reports about reception of above mentioned broadcasts.

Our e-mail address is: marconiradiointernational@gmail.com but please don’t forget to include your postal address as some lucky listeners will also receive a printed QSL card.

Last but not least,  we need your help! If you use social networks, please post an announcement on Facebook  or send out a tweet the day  before the broadcasts.   You can also forward this message to a friend. This should help increase our  potential audience.

We hope to hear from a lot of shortwave listeners about these two special  30th anniversary broadcasts.

Late update: Please note that on  3rd January 2016 MRI will be on the air one hour more than originally planned as the transmission starts at 07.00 UTC. Our frequency remains the same: 11390 kHz and power in the region of 30 watts.

Medium wave pirate RKNW to close down

The UK's only regular MW Pirate Station will be closing after our Xmas Day & Boxing Day transmission on 1521Khz (197m) to SW London and surrounding areas.

After 4 years of regular weekly broadcasting Sundays 10-2pm and Bank Holidays, it is with deep regret that because MW listening holds no attraction anymore, we have decided to pull the plug.

You can join us on 1521 Xmas Day 10am - 3pm or online at www.beam.to/rknw or Playstore App (RKNW)

Final special line-up
10 am. Andy Walker (Promo 45's) 
Midday. Andy Peters (Guess The Keyword) 
1pm. Chris Ise (The German Geezer Show) 
2pm. Stewart Ross (The Ross Meister Show)

(Source: Garry Stevens Pirate Radio Board http://members7.boardhost.com/PirateRadio/msg/1450984449.html)

There is some other medium wave pirate activity around the UK this Christmas:
Merseyland Alternative Radio is broadcasting to Merseyside, North West England and North Wales until January 3 on 87.5 & 105 FM and online www.mar.me.uk

Phaser Radio is broadcasting on 1512 kHz to the London area. Also online at www.phaserradio.com

Radio Marconi Int QSL


Radio Marconi Int from Italy sent this eQSL and a station newsletter. In it they explain that the transmitter can only broadcast between 11 and 12 mHz but there are plans for a second transmitter which can be tuned between 6 and 21 mHz. At the moment the station is a difficult catch on 11390 kHz although they have received reports from 13 countries. The station first went on the air in 1986 and continued until 1999. This year RMI returned to the airwaves. Thanks for the QSL.

Pirate chat problems

Iann's popular pirate radio chat box has been having connection problems. Iann suggests using the direct link: http://xat.com/PirateRadio2011

The end for Radio Zeewolf?

Wizard's MW Free Radio blog reports: "On July 26 two men were seen outside the house of the operator of Radio Zeewolf, who was transmitting on MW at the time. They were taking photographs of the antenna and were thought to have been representatives of the AT, who are responsible for keeping the airwaves clear of illicit radio stations in the Netherlands. However, they were not seen again and nothing was heard about the visit. Not until October 31."

To read the full article go to: http://mwfreeradio.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-end-of-zeewolf.html

MW Free Radio is a site worth visiting regularly if you're interested in Dutch pirate radio, especially the many medium wave pirates than operate above 1611 kHz.

Tackling pirate radio in London

A new approach to tackling pirate radio has eradicated the problem in one London borough, and could save up to £1 million for Londoners by being rolled out across the capital.

Pirate radio harms local communities and the critical communications used by the emergency services. Ofcom, which manages radio frequencies, is hosting a summit on 3 November to explore the new approach to tackling the problem.

Pirate stations typically use high-rise buildings for their broadcasts, with illegal transmitters installed on rooftops or hidden in lift shafts. This damages residential properties owned by local authorities, disrupting residents' lives and putting people at risk from falling equipment.

Ofcom has been working in north London, one of the UK's most affected areas, with public housing body Homes for Haringey. In 2014, 19 pirate radio stations were illegally broadcasting in Haringey. By quickly removing their transmitters and regularly patrolling and securing rooftops, pirate radio has now been eradicated in the borough.

As a result, Homes for Haringey has saved £90,000 in enforcement and maintenance costs over the past year.
On 3 November, Ofcom is meeting with local authorities from across London to share the success of the Homes for Haringey partnership. If this collaborative and proactive approach is rolled out across the capital, local authorities stand to save an estimated total of £1 million per year.

Illegal broadcasting:

Clive Corrie, Head of Ofcom's Spectrum Enforcement team, said: "Illegal broadcasting harms local communities and risks lives by interfering with vital communications used by the emergency services and air traffic control.

"By working in partnership with local authorities, Ofcom is tackling this problem. We also strongly urge those broadcasting illegally to get involved with internet or community radio, a legitimate route on to the airwaves."

Astrid Kjellberg-Obst, Executive Director of Operations at Homes for Haringey, said: "Pirate radio stations damage people's homes and can be extremely distressing to our residents.

"We've seen huge success in tackling the problem with the measures that we've introduced, removing all pirate radio stations from Haringey and saving the borough tens of thousands of pounds in the process. We will continue to work with Ofcom to keep Haringey pirate-free."

Harmful interference to emergency services:

Pirate radio causes interference to critical radio services, including those used by the emergency services and air traffic control.

In 2014, the UK's air traffic control service NATS has reported 55 cases of communications interference from pirate radio.

Ofcom also receives reports each week from the emergency services and other, legitimate radio services of illegal interference.

Ofcom has powers to seize illegal broadcasting equipment and prosecute those involved.

Accessible, legal alternatives to get on to the airwaves:

For anyone wanting to broadcast a radio station, Ofcom offers accessible, legal alternatives to get on to the airwaves. Since 2005, Ofcom has issued community radio licenses, enabling small stations across the UK to get on-air right and serve their local communities. More than 200 community radio services are now broadcasting.

Ofcom is also supporting a new, innovative way for smaller stations to broadcast on digital radio. If tests are successful the system, called 'small scale DAB', promises to open up digital radio to smaller broadcasters for a fraction of current costs.

Relay of Horizon FM, Canary Islands heard in UK

During the past few days several British DX Club members have reported hearing the Canary Islands English-language station Horizon FM on 1476 kHz or 1539 kHz.

The signal has been reported in north west England after dark with suggestions that the relay is coming from the northern part of Ireland, possibly Donegal.

Last year the station was logged regularly on shortwave for several months via a mystery relay before disappearing again.

Radio Mi Amigo to test 3985 kHz

Autumn and winter is coming as conditions on Shortwave change.

Our daily broadcasts on 6005 kHz in the 49-meter band maybe harder to receive in the dark at nighttime. We are therefore testing the alternative frequency of 3985 kHz before we make a final decision to change our daily 19:00 - 20:00 CET (1700-1800 UTC) 6005 kHz broadcasts to this new frequency.
                                                                                     
This week only (19 - 23 October) we will broadcast on both 6005 and 3985 kHz to see which one of them works best. Please be so kind to help us by sending a reception report. Tell us where you are listening and which of the 2 frequencies you prefer. At the end of the week we will pick one of the reception reports as a 'winner' who will receive a mini multiband radio as a reward.

 Use our contact form on the website of send your reports to: info@radiomiamigointernational.com

The 48 metre band faded out very early this evening. Completely dead when I tuned in on the Twente SDR at 1730 UTC. But on the other hand the top end of medium wave was full of Greek pirates (some with decent strength) on the Twente SDR.

A quick bandscan at 1735 UTC:
1640 Greek music (fair)
1653 Greek music (fair/good)
1660 Greek music (fair)
1670 Greek music (good)
 plus weak carriers on 1690, 1691, 1696, 1700, 1710, 1720 kHz - possibly more Greek or Balkan pirates.
