In a study on the future of Hungarian Radio it was concluded that Hungarian music was repressed in the media. This happened despite having a huge fan base, particularly in rural areas. That is why Dankó Rádió was launched in 2012. The station is named after Dankó Pista, a cigány composer from Hungary.
Dankó Rádió is active on two mediumwave frequencies, 1116 and 1251 kHz, from four transmitter locations. Both can be received quite well here in the Netherlands. Via I received an e-QSL for both frequencies, accompanied by a friendly email from Mr. Ivan Kovacs .
