Bogusman and Blacklake eQSLs




Bogusman sent me this great eQSL for my log of his station yesterday afternoon via the Twente SDR. Not heard on Barney's SDR in UK.

Radio Blacklake is a new station for me - but a quick reply for reception yesterday.

Thanks very much.

Laser Hot Hits relay on 1494 seems to getting out well. I heard it at home at 1800 using my Degen 1103 portable, with a boost from a Tecsun AN200 loop antenna. SINPO 34333. With shortwave being so unreliable at the moment it seems to be the best way to get the signal out.

Special announcement for Artem's World Music N30

My dear colleagues and friends,

As you maybe know my next show will be N30. Unfortunately I had no special celebration on 10, 20 and 25…. So I am planning something special for N30.

All my listeners and operators who play my shows on the air know that it is dedicated to World Music. So if you are able to record a greeting for my show N30 n your native language, it will be great.

You also could remind me of music I maybe played or maybe you just want to hear, so ask me for a singer, group or just a region of the World and I’ll try to do my best!

Special attention: we have a lot of English speaking listeners, but English is different from part to part of the World so if your native language is English, please turn your local accent on as much as it is possible. Sure, it will be great

The plan is to produce new show before Christmas 2016!
If I’d collect as much different and exotic languages as possible, it will be greeeeeeaaaaat!
Thank you in advance for support!

Yours truly,
Incredible Artem

Test broadcast via Channel 292 this Wednesday

Dear friends,


Christmas is near, and our schedule shows, that the holidays are really crowded. Due to the conditions during the winter, some stations moved to daylight hours:
http://www.channel292.de/schedule-for-bookings/

Some new or well known programs can be heard (again), too: Hobart Radio from Australia, from Sweden the Swedish DX Federation, from Germany SM Radio Dessau, and Blueman Radio is one more. Surely these stations would be happy to get your reports!

And we have a request, not only for the listeners in German speaking areas:
Starting in 2017, a new station from the northern part of Germany wants to fill shortwave with life for some hours per day. They are still looking for a good partner to bring their program on air with a good and strong signal.

To check this, they will run a test program this coming week on Wednesday the 23rd, at 1400 CET = 1300 UTC on 6070 kHz.

We know that for a lot of listeners this will not be a good time to tune in, but all the others, who are able to listen, should send reception reports to the address mentioned in the program. Please let them know how good and strong (as we hope) you receive our signal!

If this test for them shows a positive result, it would be a big step forward for our station; maybe we even could run a second frequency in the 49 meter band.

We count on you!!

Global Pirate Weekend

Message from Andrew Yoder:

Hi,
I'm just writing with a reminder about the Global HF Pirate weekend is just starting. This is the revival of an idea from a few years ago: Stations broadcast on high frequencies in an effort to be heard across long distances and in different continents. I've heard from a few stations, received a schedule from one, and have heard from a few listeners in countries without many stations. So, I have hope that we'll all have a good time by the shortwave radios over the next 48 hours or so.

November 5-6, 2016
General frequency ranges:
15010-15100 kHz
21455-21550 kHz

Basic schedule:
European morning, 0800-1200 UTC from Europe to Asia/Japan/Oceania.
European afternoon, 1200-1600 UTC from Europe to North American and vice versa.
European night, 2200-2400 UTC from North America to Asia/Oceania.

Of course, these are general frequency ranges where pirates have broadcast during prior Global HF Pirate weekends. Some stations will surely operate on frequencies and times outside of these ranges. These will be updated on HF Underground and on the Hobby Broadcasting blog (http://hobbybroadcasting.blogspot.com/) as schedules are received from stations.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks & have a great weekend!
Andrew

Non Stop 90s Radio to cease broadcasting

Much hyped pirate radio station Non-Stop 90s is closing down its transmitters today (Oct 31)  after a year of broadcasting across much of Ireland.

At 7pm on Bank Holiday Monday 31st October 2016 the station – heard on 107.1FM in Dublin, 104.2FM in the North East, 87.7FM in the North West, 1494AM in Dublin and 6205SW across Ireland and the UK – will turn the TXs off.

RadioToday understands a number of legal stations in Dublin have been complaining about the station, campaigning for it to be closed down for fear of them taking revenue away.

The programme schedule, according to its website, includes Enda Caldwell at breakfast, Vinny S, Ronan Devitt, Louise Jordan, Ter Fitz and John Troy on Lates. Weekends included Greg James, Mark Byrne, Tracy Lee and Gary Cruz.

Non-Stop 90s has a purpose built studio and has built up a large following and profit since it started.

(radiotoday.ie via Mike Terry, BDXC-UK Yahoo group)

I believe the station is now applying for a license from the Irish authorities.
