The final song in tomorrow's show will have include MFSK32 with the track listing embedded into it along with an emoji and some Icelandic art! (Note, an app like TIVAR shows the emoji!)

The Ghoul was heard via Channel 292 yesterday afternoon and I received this eQSL from the station.

Radio 208 is a Danish medium wave station running 500 Watts on 1440 kHz. Station owner Stig says he hopes to be on shortwave in a few weeks time. He has already received more than 200 reception reports from 17 European countries - the majority from Germany (31%), Sweden (18%), Finland (14%) and the Netherlands (9%).

Thanks for the eQSLs.

Radio Northern Europe Int to launch on shortwave

Roseanna writes on her blog:

"Dear readers,

I would like to share something very exciting that I’ve been working on since May 2019: Radio Northern Europe International

RNEI will be the station for pop and dance music from Northern Europe on shortwave playing music from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, the UK and Ireland!

I aim to play music you haven’t heard before and the first show features a very exciting experiment: Embedded MFSK64! This means, hidden in the final song, there will be the song list sent in MFSK64 in such a way it won’t be off-putting for those of you not decoding!

My shows will mainly consist of lesser known music with a small amount of speaking and jingles. Without spoiling too much of the show I can hint that you’ll hear some Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, English and Icelandic language music if you tune in!

The first pilot show will go out on 6070 kHz Channel 292 from Germany (decent reception all over Europe) at the following times: February Saturdays 19:00-19:30 UTC (Starting Saturday 15th).

I’m also in talks with shortwaveradio.de so there is a possibility of using 3975kHz & 6160kHz as well (increased reception in the Benelux/UK/Ireland regions!). After the broadcast, shows will be published on Mixcloud and my reception on YouTube in case you’ve missed the show!

I will respond to all reception reports sent in and, if I get enough, I’ll try and get postcards made to send out (I’ve designed one I want to get printed!)

I would like to take this space to thank RPC Audio (Jono) for the cheap jingles and Daz from HFZone for helping me with making my mic sound good!

I really hope you all get a chance to listen in and that you get decent reception!
until next time."

Radio Barracuda to return to shortwave

Hello shortwave listeners,

Sorry for my absence that lasts from 2016 is about to end. Soon I will be ON-AIR, always on the frequency of 6240kHz. I will transmit with a magnetic loop antenna and a power of 10 Watt with an innovative class E transmitter with class D PWM modulator.

It will be a new challenge for you to listen to me, and for me it will always be a pleasure to send me my new e-QSL.

My locator will be JN45 but the new possibilities of the new antenna will allow me to make transmissions around northern Italy.

Key Channel Radio Winter Marathon this weekend

Dear friends, 2020 will be our fifth year of broadcasting, for this occasion we have created a new
program, the "Winter Marathon" with lots of beautiful music and interesting sections.

We will start with a memory, the ABC Radio FM 105 Hit Parade recorded in April 1978. A nice selection of Sokous music from the equatorial region of Africa will follow, a genre that gives a lot of joy. Made by people who have nothing but are happy anyway.

The third and fourth hour will keep us company Massi with its "Mistik Show" now fixed program in our schedule. The unsurpassed "Artem's World Music" will follow with lots of beautiful Cuban music and news from the world of broadcasting on that splendid island.

Finally, we thought of "Old Italian Style", a roundup of immortal successes that have made Italy great in the world.

So many reasons to listen to us once again, we are waiting for you on the wave of KCR, the Italian multi-ethnic radio in short waves.
