Skyline Radio Germany strikes back

After our great success seven weeks ago let's get ready to rumble again. Shortwaveradio.de has kindly given us another opportunity to be on air with some brand new shows via their transmitters in Northern Germany.

If you would like to try to catch our programmes, Saturday June 8, 1700 - 2300 UTC would be a good time to give us a listen again on 3975kHz!

Let's keep fingers crossed that propagation is good again!

We received more than 30 reception reports in April and we hope we can beat this result! So don't hesitate to write in again. It might be a good chance for you to get another special eQSL-card.

We look forward to your reception reports and comments to:
SKYLINE RADIO GERMANY, P.O.Box 2702, 6049 ZG Herten, The Netherlands or via e-mail to: skylineradiogermany@web.de

Have a great time with us and good DX,
DJ Jan-Hendrik

Key Channel Radio on air this weekend

Dear Listeners, we're back. :-)

In these months of absence, we have renewed all our facilities and established a serious Internet connection in our "den". We are ready for our first broadcast of 2019 !!

As usual, we will be on the air almost all weekend with lots of beautiful music and interesting columns.

We will start with a blast from the past with an original 1978 Hit by ABC Radio, a station founded by Massi, which at that time "radiated", followed by two hours of beautiful music in the company of Massi.

Fixed address book now, that of the good Artem's World Music with a lot of beautiful Cuban music and an interesting overview of the island's broadcasting.

An hour of US Oldies selected by me and the last space, a fantastic range of beautiful songs from all over the world.

I am sure, dear friends, that you will follow us in many as you have always done in these two very beautiful years of transmissions.

Your reports give us so much enthusiasm, with some of you we are now friends, some will be in the future, all this is fantastic.

Good listening

Jasmine.

Planned low-power QRP transmission during the Easter Weekend Pirate Hunt

Dear Listener/DXer

Special numbered QRP Certificates of Achievement will be issued via e-mail to any DXer who is able to copy Radio Parade's 2.5 watt (10 watt PEP) AM brief broadcast(s) during the Easter Weekend and send a valid reception report.

Rules:
1) Radio Parade International must not use more than 2.5 watt (10 watt PEP) power in AM mode, use the most efficient antenna, clearest frequency on 48 meters and best time for propagation, day or night.
2) The listener/Dxer must supply a valid reception report with SINPO, time, frequency and some broadcast detail(s) for verification. If two similar or near identical reports are received, Radio Parade will have the right to request further unique broadcast information.
3)  The listener/DXer may use their own equipment, online kiwiSDRs or other online remote receivers if they live far away or in an area with high local QRM and lack their own reception equipment.
4) Upon validation, the DXer will receive a special numbered Certificate of low power QRP Achievement in PDF format as email attachment within a few days

The first certificate has now already been issued to a DXer in Finland who received Radio Parade International's signal during a QRP broadcast power of only 2.5 watt AM with his home equipment.

The plan to go QRP will hopefully take place if propagation conditions are similar or better to that of the last few days and last weekend, time, frequency, (short) duration are not fixed or guaranteed.

Good luck, good DX and 73s,

Radio Parade International

Radio Parade Int to increase power

Dear listeners,

After sucessfully completed enginering tests, from today, all future broadcasts of Radio Parade International will be at double previous power from 50 watt (200 w PEP) increased to 100 watt (400 w PEP).

This should give a theoretical signal incease of 3 db in all directions or approx half an S point increase on your receiver. Hopefully this makes the AM signal a little clearer to copy especially at long distances outside of Europe.

Kind regards and 73s

Radio Kolibrie photos



I've had a reply from low power Dutch station Radio Kolibrie who can sometimes be heard on 6240 kHz. He said first started on the FM band when he was 15 years old and has been active on shortwave, and sometimes medium wave, for the past nine years.

He runs just five watts into a six metre longwire. He also sent a selection of photos of his studio and antenna. Thanks Kolibrie.
