QSL FROM AMERICAN SHORTWAVE STATION ‘THE BEGINNING’

Thanks to the forum ‘HF Underground’ I was able to identify a very weak station broadcasting in AM on 6965 kHz as “Radio The Beginning”. “The Beginning” broadcasts from the north eastern United States. The transmission power is 100 watts and the signal bridged about +- 5600 km away! In this YouTube video: https://youtu.be/7P4LCB-IiRs you can see a short recording in which you see the little signal and in the beginning you can also recognize some audio (= the song “Wonderwall”). I was therefore happy that “De Beginning” recognized the weak signal as this from their station!

QSL FROM DUTCH LOW POWER AM STATION ‘RADIO JONG EUROPA’

On February 8, 2021 I was able to receive low power station ‘Radio Jong Europe’ (1 watt) from Alphen a/d Rijn in the Netherlands on 1485 kHz. Recently I got the QSL! Meanwhile, those broadcasts on 1485 kHz have ended for good and there are test broadcasts (usually in the evenings) on 6125 kHz!

QSL FROM FREE ‘RADIO CLASH’ ON 6325 kHZ

The collaborators of Radio Clash have radio in their blood, because in the late 70’s and early 80’s they were also very active on the free radio frequencies on short wave. Locked up by Covid-19, the idea came up to start again with a new station on the free radio frequencies. Thus Radio Clash was born. Currently, 15 watts of power are used, but the intention is to increase the power to 100 watts. Radio Clash is very interested in reception reports. They will be answered with a personal letter, info sheet and an e-qsl! The address is radioclashqsl(at)gmail.com.

QSL FROM BBC WORLD SERVICE ANTARCTIC MIDWINTER’S BROADCAST

I forgot to post this QSL here! This year I listened to the BBC World Service Antarctic Midwinter’s Broadcast through the relay station on Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. Every year a special broadcast I think!. After 2 days my report was confirmed with a comprehensive and informative QSL! There was also a personal message with the e-mail! I sent my report directly to the relay station!

QSL FROM “RADIO EUROPE 24” ON SW 6150 KHZ

Radio Europe 24 broadcasts on 6150 kHz from Datteln, near Dortmund, Germany with 200 watts. The nice thing for me is that, in between the non-stop music, they also provide short news broadcasts in Dutch, my own language! The station is well received here from mid-morning until late in the afternoon. You can listen to a recording. In it you will also hear the e-mail contact address: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aro72tta91buez2/Radio%20Europe%2024%2C%20Gemany%20%206150%20kHz%2018.08.21%20-10.00%20CET.mp3?dl=0

“POWER 927” IS A NEW RADIOSTATION ON THE MEDIUM WAVE

In the dark evening hours I recently heard on 927 kHz a new station identifying itself as “Power 927”. The signal comes from a 1 kW transmitter in Milan, Italy. The reception is good here in the west of Belgium! Here you can listen to a short recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ebxxa4wjmy6kdfo/Power%20927%2C%20%20927%20kHz%2018.08.21%20-%2019.03%20UTC.mp3?dl=0. They claim to “Bringing the medium wave back to life” with their station! I didn’t hear a contact address yet!

THREE FULL DETAILED QSL CARDS FROM WORLD MUSIC RADIO FROM DENMARK

Recently I received three beautiful QSL cards (15 cm x 21 cm) and a personal letter from World Music Radio! I had heard them on 927 kHz and 2 times on 25800 kHz. The transmitter on 927 kHz is currently out of use due to extremely bad weather! Occasionally, if there are conditions, the 25800 kHz is quite receivable: https://youtu.be/B-vvXYmIwsk and https://youtu.be/swUMT7-INaY.
