Radio Onda operates from the Dutch city Borculo on 6140 kHz (500 watt)! In addition to good French music, the best international hits from the 80s and 90s, you will also hear beautiful Brazilian songs! The intention is to start from October/November 2021 with a 2nd short wave transmitter on 9520 kHz. The website is https://www.radioonda.be/.
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
After sending a reception report 4 months ago, I surprisingly received a nice E-QSL from Radio Studio X broadcasting on 1188 kHz (5 kW) from Italy! Beautiful!👍
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!
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.
I received a reception confirmation from ‘Radio Sitara FM’. I had heard this 100 watt power station around noon (under the noise!) on 900 kHz medium wave. The transmission location of Sitara is in Houten, Province of Utrecht in the Netherlands. And that is about 204 km from my hometown.
On July 04, 2021, there was the traditional summer transmission with the Alexanderson 200 kW alternator on VLF 17.2 kHz from Grimeton Radio/SAQ in Sweden. On this YouTube video you can see how the reception was here with a simple T-Antenna of + – 50 meters long (without Balun!): https://youtu.be/rSfJDqV5DuM. And here you can listen to the full broadcast message I received: SAQ 17.2 kHz 04.07.21 mp3
On the night of 3 to 4 July 2021, Radio Igloo, in collaboration with the ‘Westcoast DX club’ in Sweden, had a broadcast on 5800 kHz via the 100 kW transmitter of WRMI in Florida, USA! The reception was not too good here in Europe! Anyway Radio Igloo and the Westcoast DX club always do their best to make it a nice broadcast and that deserves a reception report!
World Music Radio – WMR from Copenhagen, Denmark confirmed my reception report with a non-detailed E-qsl for their broadcasts on 927 kHz! Recently I also heard them on the new short wave frequency 25800 kHz!
