The wonderful world of listening to the radio

QSL Unique Gold 675 kHz

I received a polite email as QSL for my reception of Unique Gold on 675 kHz. Unique Gold is a LPAM (100 Watt) station in Wijchen, about 66 kilometer away from my QTH. As is the case with a few other stations from that area their signal is surprisingly strong. I suspect that the rivers flowing through the central part of the Netherlands help to promote propagation. And they have antenna at 70 meter height next to a lake. I sent my report to .

Hans Coenen of Unique Gold also told me that they are planning to start broadcasts on 1287 kHz as well. That will create a bit of a conflict with Kilrock when they return on the air after the relocation.
UPDATE: I learned that Kilrock might relocate to the province Zeeland. In that case there is probably no conflict, they might even apply for a new frequency. Will be interesting to see if they retain their old name, as “Kil” refers to the geographical area they are broadcasting from.

Unique Gold is one of 4 radio streams offered by Unique via the internet and they are also active on DAB. You can read more about this station on: .

    Could you ask the Dutch DX community if there has been any registration somewhere online of the exact locations of all of the antennas used to broadcast in the Netherlands with approx 100W? I will be grateful for any help since I am struggling.

      Hi Dan,
      There are two resources you could use.
      First there is this list . It is kept fairly up to date and lists all LPAM stations in the Netherlands and the town/village they are operating from.
      Secondly there is the “antenne register”: . Select “OMROEP” (Dutch for broadcast) and the map will show the exact location of broadcast antennas in a town or village (they are a bit difficult to spot maybe, but they are little green symbols… if you select/deselect/select you might spot them a bit quicker).
      The only problem is when there is more than 1 broadcast antenna in a city, because the register doesn’t show its owner on line. With streetview/google maps you can try to spot the antenna and derive its purpose from there. Alternatively the antenna register allows you to submit a query about an antenna via a webform.
      Hope this helps, 73s Peter
