Regular European transmissions

Post by terry newfoundland » Sat May 28, 2011 8:12 pm

Note: Updated below!

Just noticed this new heading (thanks Poet).

This is not really a logging (europe has gone to bed), but for those interested in europirates, I thought I would list some of the stations that are currently on the air and follow a regular shedule.

Laser Hot Hits, 24/7 on 4026 and 6945 (different programs), http://www.laserhothits.co.uk

Irish Music Radio, has been on 6930 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night until about 0200 UTC for the past month (no website or contact known)

WR International, every Sunday morning (until around 11:30 UTC) on 12257. http://www.wrinternational.co.uk/

Skyline International Radio, most Friday nights on 3905 (closing time depends on the party :D ) http://www.skylinepirateradio.tk

The regular Italian stations (Mystery, Playback and Amica) have all been off the air for about a year.

Cheers, Terry

Thanks for the info Terry! Some of those European Pirates have some very serious hardware. Just blows my mind to see some of that stuff and to think a "hobbyist" is using it.

6960Khz AM used to be Atlantic Radio from Ireland 24/7. They have been off for about a month now.

Recently emailed them about it and got a reply saying they will be back on 6960 soon...

@Gristle A lot of the Dutch pirates use surplus military txs. Big and heavy but very reliable.

There are a lot more links to websites (and emails) at https://docs.google.com/document/previe ... nQk0&pli=1# (page is slow loading)

Tonight I am hearing Laser Hot Hits on 4015 instead of 4026. They had used 4015 before, and 4026 had been getting some ute QRM lately. I will post if they move back or to another frequency.

Weekend afternoon transmissions have resumed this month, June, from MAR Merseyland Alternative Radio, pirate radio from Liverpool. They were raided by ofcom earlier this year but continue on the medium wave band on 1395 AM (215 metres). Their other transmitter on 1314 AM (228 metres) was seized but they are looking to replace ;)

1395 is subject to suddenly dropping out, probably as a result of bad swr and the transmitter automatically closing. :?

For those outside of NW England, Web streams can be found at; http://www.mar.me.uk

Edit July 16th. MAR appear to have reduced power on 1395, probably to stop their drop out issues but are no longer audible at my location !

Atlantic Radio is back on 6959.8 am tonight. Not sure yet if a test or resuming 24/7 txs.

Mostly pop music tonight, but also an old US newscast from the 60's at 0030, ending with a minute of JFK :)

7/17/11, approx 2225z - Thanks for the heads up on these freqs. Via Cumbria, UK global tuner remote, hearing:
Laser Hot Hits on 6945 - Style Council "Walls Come Tumbling Down", Suzanne Vega "Left of Center", very clear with minor fades.
On 6930, presumably Irish Music Radio tho' ID partially obscured during fade. Female DJ shout-outs to Europe, US, etc. Don't recognize songs. Good peaks, more fading than station on 6945. (Ah, heard "IMR" ID at 2236z.)

After last weekends absence, MAR Merseyland Alternative Radio, pirate radio from Liverpool is back on the medium wave band frequency of 1395 AM (215 metres). Although only coming on air 10 minutes ago at 16:00hrs BST, I had the transmission suddenly drop out !

Hi everyone:

Laser Hot Hits has moved from 6945 to 6940. (also tried 6935 for a night, but seems to have settled on 6940.)

There is also a new regular station, Lightning Radio from central Europe. schedule at http://www.lightningradio.tk . It proving to be a real challenge, however. I have been trying for the past month ... usually a detectable carrier, sometimes traces of music, but no details logged yet.

WireUK: Thanks for the info. I will check 1395, but summer is not the best for mw dx.

Cheers, Terry

There have been a few changes over the past months, so I thought it might be a good idea to summarize them:

Laser Hot Hits, 24/7 now on 4015 and 6940 (different programs), http://www.laserhothits.co.uk

Irish Music Radio, now on 6930 Saturday and Sunday night until about 0100 or 0200 UTC email: imr6930@yahoo.com

WR International, every Sunday morning (until around 11:30 UTC) on 12257. http://www.wrinternational.co.uk/

Skyline International Radio, most Friday nights on 3905 (closing time depends on the party :D ) http://www.skylinepirateradio.tk

Lightning Radio, Hungary, 6990,5 kHz, 2030-0000 (0100 Sat. and Sun.), http://lightningradio.tk/

Atlantic Radio is off the air again. They seemed to have problems with their audio feed, so they turned it off for now.
