Dear SWL friends,
The Italian Group Free Wave organize for you, a radio contest that will be on air on shortwaves QRG in Amplitude Modulation. 
The Game is very simple - "TAKE THE MESSAGE"
Each free station will be on air at different moments and each one will be on air on his own QRG, transmitting a single part of a complete message in Italian and English, that is ever the same. Your challenge is recreating the complete message ! All parts of the message start with a particular advising sound for all free stations. The single part of the message will be transmitted following this schedule:

6.870 Radio Samurai from 08.00 to 08.30 UTC
6.875 Radio Europe from 08.30 to 09.00 UTC
6.940 Radio Enterprise from 09.00 to 09.30 UTC
7.300 Radio U-Boat 66 from 10.00 to 10.30 UTC
7.300 Mistero Ghost Planet from 10.30 to 11.00 UTC
The complete message will be transmitted instead only via:
3.905 Radio Arcadia from 21.00 to 22.00 UTC
To participate to the game as SWL, you only have to recreate the complete message, but you also have to write the single part you have heard from each Italian Free Station .
All SWL can participate to the game with their own radio and antennas, and also using web SDR receiver. Please send your report to:
