The wonderful world of listening to the radio

QSL Johnny Tobacco Radio 6275 kHz

A QSL for Johnny Tobacco Radio on 6275 kHz. At first I thought I received Akenzo, which is also broadcasting on this frequency.

Johnny Tobacco runs a 1.5 kW transmitter on a dipole. And yep it was “booming in”. Location is in the north east of the Netherlands. I heard “Abu Dhabi” as an alternate ID. I got the address through this excellent website:

    Thanks Peter.

    Johnny Tobacco sometimes uses different names for his station, IDing as Abu Dhabi Radio, Black Bandit or Triple L Radio. He is certainly one of strongest of the Dutch shortwave pirates and often ends his broadcast with Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again.”
