Special announcement for Artem's World Music N30

My dear collegues and friends,

As you maybe know my next show will be N30. Unfortunately I had no special celebration on 10, 20 and 25…. So I am planning something special for N30.
All my listeners and operators who play my shows on the air know that it is dedicated to World Music. So if you are able to record a greeting for my show N30 in your native language, it will be great. You also could remind music I maybe played or maybe you just want to hear, so ask me for a singer, group or just a region of the World and I’ll try to do my best!
Special attention: we have a lot of English speaking listeners, but English is different fom part to part of the World so if your native language is English, please turn your local accent on as much as it is possible. Sure, it will be great.
The plan is to produce new show before Christmas 2016!
If I collect as many different and exotic languages as possible, it will be greeeeeeaaaaat!
Thank you in advance for support!

Yours truly,

Incredible Artem

Radio 292

Dear friends,

Christmas is near, and our schedule shows, that the holidays are really crowded. Due to the conditions during the winter, some stations moved to daylight hours:
http://www.channel292.de/schedule-for-bookings/
and some new or well known programs can be heard (again), too: Hobart Radio from Australia, from Sweden the Swedish DX Federation, from Germany SM Radio Dessau, and Blueman Radio is one more. Surely these stations would be happy to get your reports!

And we have a request, not only for the listeners in German speaking areas:
Starting in 2017, a new station from the northern part of Germany wants to fill shortwave with life for some hours per day. They are still looking for a good partner to bring their program on air with a good and strong signal. To check this, they run a test program the coming week on Wednesday, the 23rd November, at 1400 CET = 1300 UTC on 6070 kHz.
We know that for a lot of listeners this will not be a good time to tune in, but all the others, who are able to listen, should send reception reports to the address mentioned in the program. Please let them know how good and strong (as we hope) you receive our signal!
If this test for them shows a positive result, it would be a big step forward for our station; maybe we even could run a second frequency in the 49 meter band.

We count on you!!

A noise-free location

I am currently away for a few days in a remote part of Cumbria in the North-west of England. Staying in a cottage away from other houses allows some good radio reception, free of noise and man-made QRM.

I am reminded whilst here that I rely at home on recent technology to help me listen to an older technology (AM radio).

What do I mean? Well, at home, I have the Pirate Chat to help me identify stations, especially Dutch ones that maybe I have not identified because I do understand some of the Dutch spoken. I have the SDRplay where I can see all the stations that are in a given part of the band. Also, at home with internet access on the iPhone, I can ask Shazam to identify the music played.

In this cottage I have to rely on memory or guess work. I have just a Tecsun PL-600 and a Tecsun wire antenna to pick up the stations on short wave. No phone signal or internet. The nearest phone signal is 5 miles distant (8 kilometres).

So I listen to the 48 metre band and wait for the IDs. It is mostly successful, and many thanks to stations like Casanova, Laser and Merlin who ID regularly. An occasional station steadfastly refuses to ID and I add it reluctantly to the list as UNID. Other UNIDs are purely a result of not listening for long enough.

Here is the list of stations so far heard:

Saturday 12th November 2016
6285 @ 1652 Zwarte Panter – 35434; Dutch music and ID in Dutch

Sunday 13th November 2016
6245 @ 0916 Casanova – 35433, musical programme

6310 @ 0937 RSI (Scotland Int) – 35434; XTC and “Making Plans for Nigel”, later on 6305
6285 @ 1348 The Ghoul – 35434; usual patter from The Ghoul, asking for emails to differentradio@yahoo.com, rock music track

6385 @ 1401 UNID – 25332; heard talk of Readymix and Lowland, in QSO
6325 @ 1352 UNID – 35333; lots of Radio Caroline jingles and also those of other offshore stations, e.g. Radio Veronica
6220 @ 1402 Merlin – 2-34333; Shadows music, ID @ 1405, slight utility QRM started

Then to Medium Wave and a listening session on the Tatung (Sangean ATS-803a) and the Tecsun loop antenna which attaches directly to the Tatung.

1620 @ 2130 – 2200 Technische Man – 35434 to 45434; playing a range of golden oldies with first class audio quality (prima kwaliteit) ID @ 2148, ID again @ 2155 in Dutch, George Michael, Whitney Houston songs. Listening in the bath! Bedankt TM voor de muziek!
1647 Witte Tornado en Lady – 35434; Jim Reeves and “He’ll Have to Go”, Dutch songs, @ 2213 The Lady speaks in Dutch, ID and phone number.
1620 De Panter (Blauwe) – 35333; Jim Reeves song, “Veronica” song, “God Only Knows” by Beach Boys

Any inaccuracies in these loggings can only be attributed to listening in the “old” way!
