I received a nice QSL letter for my reception of Golden Oldies Radio on 5835 kHz. I sent my report to email@example.com
From the QSL letter: Every sunday morning -in winter time- Golden Oldies Radio is live on air @ 5835 AM from 8.00 till 14.00 CET by Dutch Relay Service, and 24/7 @ internet-radio: www.goldenoldiesradio.nl . Programs are presented in dutch language and mainly directed to the Netherlands and Belgium. Golden oldies Radio is in the spirit of former offshore radio station Mi Amigo!
e QSL from Radio Mexico 6285 kHz. A Free Radio station from North West Germany. I sent my report to Mexico1955 (at) web.de . Operator Georg has built the transmitter himself using circuit boards from Greece. The transmitter has an output of 350W (200 W PEP).
Radio Igloo was on air last weekend (and I told you so!). This time from Europe (my previous QSL was for a reception via WRMI). On Saturday, November 11th, they were present on three frequencies via three different Free Radio stations. I managed to pick up the one on 4975 kHz, but only the first 30 minutes. Conditions were poor and I suffered a lot of QRN on my holiday location in Exloo, which didn’t help either.
A day later I heard them on 6375 kHz (which was the only frequency they used that day). Fortunately quality was much better this time, and I could listen to the entire show which featured a nice selection of music, mainly picked by participants on the Westcoast DX Club event that was held at the same time. They were together 25 km North East of Gothenburg, Sweden, with some nice antennas, including a 300 m long Beverage. You can see the expedition on the QSL – I’ve been on many DX weekends, but never one where the beds were directly behind the receiver 😉!
According to Shortwave DX blog, the 4975 kHz transmission was via Free Radio Akenzo, and the 6375 kHz via Radio Mexico. I sent my report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I received an email to QSL Del Tracks (sometimes referred to as Deltracks) on 6270 kHz. Del Tracks is a Free Radio station from The Netherlands. I heard them last weekend with the slogan “Del Tracks, your Classic Rock Station! Do you remember where you were in 1984?” I sent my report to email@example.com .
Last weekend I received Baken 16 (Dutch for Beacon 16) on 6385 kHz. This Free Radio station is named after the popular program “Baken 16” which was broadcast by Radio Mi Amigo on weekdays, lunch time, from August 1976 unit October 1978. The program was presented by Marc Jacobs. In 1979 the show featured on Radio Caroline for a few months (source: Radiopedia).
There is a nice nostalgic video on YouTube with fragments from the 500th Baken 16 show.
As a Free Radio station from The Netherlands the name Baken 16 lives on. The transmitter is a Rohde & Schwarz SK010 (100W) connected to an inverted V.
I received this beautiful e QSL from station Witte Tornado (White Tornado) and Lady. A pirate station operating from Almelo, The Netherlands, on 1647 kHz. Operator Gerard informed me that they are on air every 2nd Sunday from 17:00 to 00:00 h local time.
If you want the email address, drop me a note via a comment on this mail.
On April 26th I received a program with ID as Radio Augusta on 1611 kHz, around 20.30 hrs UTC. The program corresponded with the live stream on www.radioaugusta.com . I sent an email to the station manager firstname.lastname@example.org and received a nice email confirming that I actually listened to Radio Augusta.
Didier is a retired Belgian teacher with a history in the Belgian free radio scene. He now lives in Ivory Coast where he produces the Augusta programmes since 2016. The station is named after his wife. In addition to the internet stream there is an outlet on FM 103.9 Mhz locally.
A listener in Europe wrote to Didier that he is broadcasting the internet stream via 1611 kHz. Didier writes on the website that he is not displeased with this, but doesn’t know anything about the transmitter or its location.
Radio Charleston International is probably one of the easiest identifiable stations on the bands. As far as I know this “free radio” station from Berlin, Germany, only broadcasts music from the pre-WWII era, predominantly from from the “roaring twenties”. For my report to email@example.com I received this e-QSL:
