Logs of Monday 30th November 2015
6325 @ 1203 Monique - 34333; "Caroline" by The Fortunes, DJ talking about The Ross Revenge
I put my resolution (see below) into practice today and stayed listening to Radio Monique throughout his broadcast. Mind you, there were no other stations at that time
It may seem a strange title for a heading, but isn't that what we short wave listeners are supposed to do?
It occurred to me as I was tuning around the bands yesterday that I certainly am guilty of collecting as many different stations as I can as quickly as possible.
Now that may be a side issue of running a blog such as this, but I resolved to spend a little more time pushing the MEMORY button on a frequency and actually listening to the station.
Most free radio stations put a considerable amount of money, time and effort into their equipment and produce a really good show and deserve a little more respect than being listened to for 30 seconds!
So yesterday I listened to Radio Montferland on 6290 until the signal faded away almost completely and stayed put for a good time on 6330 with Zender Zodiac. Both stations played good entertaining music and produced an enjoyable show.
I did quickly flit around the bands to see what was going on, but returned to the station I had in memory.
I will try and carry on listening!!
