Radio Sylvia QSL

This eQSL received from Radio Sylvia for a broadcast via Channel 292. In an email the station included some information about its history:

"The station started broadcasting back in 1977 as a pirate. We were active for many years on FM, medium wave and short wave. In 1984 Radio Sylvia was raided by the German authorities and we were sentenced to heavy fines. After that we changed our name to Radio Scorpio and were relayed on a regular basis by Belgian, Scottish and Irish short wave stations.

In 2009 we restarted Radio Sylvia as an internet station. We are now broadcasting 24/7 with studios located in Hamburg, Germany. In addition to our online activities, short wave transmissions are conducted as well on every first Saturday of a month on 6070 kHz from 19:00 to 21:00 CEST.

By the way: On 2nd July we'll celebrate our 39th anniversary with a big live show. You'll be able to hear it on 6070 kHz from 18:00 to 21:00 CEST and online from 18:00 CEST until "open end". 

Our aim has always been (and still is) to provide a musical alternative to the "official" pop music radio stations. We focus on non-mainstream music and also support little-known bands and artists worldwide.
