Hungarian pirate Chaos Radio raided

Message from Chaos Radio: 

"Thanks everyone, who wrote me reports here! It was a fun one month, but it is over.
"Unfortunatelly, today, while I was testing some, the Hungarian telecommunication authorities showed up, so looks like no more transmissions from Hungary.
"We had problems for like a year now with more and more frequent pirate radio raids on 3 meter band, so I tried to move to shortwave, and hoped the best.
"Sadly, they told me, they are monitoring these frequencies too, and no mercy to unlicensed activities even on sw, so they killed my sw station too, pretty quickly."

Global HF weekend starts tomorrow

The Global HF Weekend is coming up November 2-4, 2018.

The GHFW occurs the 1st weekend in April and the first weekend in November every year. The idea is that it's a set time for listeners and stations to try testing to different parts of the world.

Over the past few years, the high frequencies have not been great for propagation between Europe and North America, but stations have still been able to reach other continents by operating at other times, etc.

Tuning into the Dutch medium wave pirates

As the nights draw in, now is the time to tune to the top end of medium wave to try and hear some
of those Dutch pirates. Many use a fair amount of power and can be heard easily across the UK.

A good source of information is the MW Free Radio blog - which gives an English perspective of the Dutch free radio scene.

This week he has updated his blog after a break of more than three months. Here you can find loggings, recordings and other observations.

The Empire strikes back!

Albert Hall of Empire Radio writes:

"The Empire Radio birthday on short wRave was intended as a "one off" programme only... I am sure that you are absolutely heartbroken about this and are finding this difficult to recover from, but fear not because there is nothing to fear but fear itself....

Apart from the above ridiculous paragraph, there is however a solution to overcome the insurmountable odds and no doubt you will be overjoyed to hear that the ALBERT HALL uncensored programme continues on 259!

But enough of my silly puns and time to abide by the accompanying photo.

Sunday Night:
Radio Mi Amigo. 6pm through to Midnight: John Westlake (Dutch), Albert Hall (8pm) and Tony Stevens (English) till closedown.

Be there or be square, or round, or oblong, or diamond shape, or a hexogone, or hexastill  or whatever you want to be!

But most of all remember to tune in and listen.

http://radiomiamigo.tripod.com

Also soon for proper DX ing some new programmes on "proper" radio.

emails to:
tonystevens259@btinternet.com

Cheers.

Empire Radio to repeat broadcast

This Sunday (30th September) the 40th anniversary Empire Radio programmes will be repeated on short wave.

Join the original 1978 team of Keith Rogers, Chris Cooper and Albert Hall for an entertaining mix of music and comedy. We'll be looking back, over 40 years, but certainly not stuck in the past.

The most likely frequency is 5825 KHz, with 5800 Khz being an alternative. Of course, these days it is possible to listen to short wave on the internet, via a WebSDR, such as the one at the University of Twente in The Netherlands, which I'll try and tune to myself: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/

The Empire will kick off at 0800 GMT and run until 1300. Programmes will then be repeated 1400-1800. We hope you will be able to tune in, and enjoy our brand of broadcasting lunacy!

(Chris Cooper on Facebook  via Mike Barraclough, BDXC io group)

The programme was first broadcast on July 22 on 6266 but bad propagation meant reception in England was poor. Hopefully it will be better on Sunday

FRS Holland to repeat last Sunday's broadcast

Dear FRS Friends,

As a result of a geomagnetic storm, last Sunday's traditional 'late August' broadcast wasn't received very well within our target area.

For that reason we repeat the full broadcast next Sunday September 2nd.
Full information is to be read on our website. Just use the link below! Details about our web streams are included.

Today (Friday August 31st) sees our 'official' 38th birthday. Exactly 38 years ago- August 31st 1980 just before 10 o'clock FRS signed on on 6250 kHz.

FRS-Holland: 38 years of short wave free radio! Tune in next Sunday, it'll be worth while.....
All the best!

Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team.

Last Sunday FRSH used 7700 & 6275 kHz. Broadcast from 1752-2150UTC. Let's hope for better reception conditions this Sunday.
