Mi Amigo special broadcast

Thursday July 21 19:00 - 22:00 [cet] -  the Mi Amigo Shortwave AM Radio Event of the Year!                    

At the beginning of this month we introduced many great improvements to our station, such as: a new international Saturday schedule, the arrival of Mi Amigo legend Peter van Dam and a new improved 192k high quality web stream.

To celebrate this new chapter in our history at the start of our new summer season, our entire crew of DJ's and technical staff a will all meet at our Short Wave Transmission Centre in beautiful Kall-Krekel, Germany for a group BBQ and a 3 hour live broadcast to Europe and the world!

For this special occasion we will not only broadcast on our regular European 6005 kHz (49m band) and the 1485 AM (from Riga), but this live show will also be relayed to the world by a 100 kW Shortwave transmitter in Armenia, on 11.850 kHz (25m band)!

This powerful 100kW transmitter has 12 different directional antenna configurations and will be able to reach parts of the world outside Europe where normally we are not received. So we intent to properly introduce ourselves and the station to all the new listeners worldwide.

The 3 hour show will feature reports and details about the unique vintage Shortwave Broadcast Centre in Kall, our transmitters, the buildings and antenna's. We'll talk about today's Free Radio and our station, where we come from and about our big plans for the nearby future. We'll introduce everyone in our excellent team.

Our DJs will tell stories -and answer questions- about their time on the glorious radio ships and play some of their special favourite records.
It will be a fun night, a real get-together of our AM radio loving international DJs and our listeners. The broadcast will be mainly in English with some Dutch, German and French as well. The music will also bring back some wonderful Free Radio memories.

Listeners can participate in a number of ways: live via email: and/or chat live via this special event page on Facebook (where we will post pictures and movies).
You may even call in live via Skype [click here for call] with questions, greetings and/or requests.

Everyone who makes contact with us that evening will receive a special QSL card.

And if you enjoy Radio Mi Amigo for its great music, you may also listen on-line in HQ stereo via our brilliant new web stream.
So we hope you will be with us, coming Thursday July 21, 19:00 till 22:00 hrs on 6005 kHz and 11.850 kHz.

Make sure you don't miss out on this unique international radio event and join the party by enlisting yourself now on our Facebook special event page, or email us so we can send you a special newsletter on Thursday as a reminder.

eQSL from Radio Star, Italy

New shortwave station Radio Star from Italy sent this attractive eQSL for my report on reception last Friday. The operator also sent this station information:

"Radio Star is basically my own radio station, also if it is a REAL radio station here in North Italy, it is not a commercial one, so still pretty free.
It is on air from 2008 on digital terrestrial, with a coverage area of 15 Millions people here and few millions also in USA , in NYC area ( I made an accord with another station) , that is not bad for a radio station that was born in my attic in 1993 through pirate FM low power (really low... less than one mile). Now I am trying with Short Waves, that I listen too from basically always. I am 38 years old but I started to play with radios before start to write. :)

You can listen my program every Friday at 21:00 UTC.

Anyway on you can find our schedule, you will receive also the schedule by email one day before the show.

Feel free to join us also on facebook group -

Thank you again and I hope for you a perfect week and summer.

Regards and 73!
