  • Just like yesterday I was listening in south-west England with the portable receiver. Once again there were some very nice signals, starting off with Zonnester with his usual Sunday morning programme on 1620. As ever, the signal was very strong
  • Scorpion from Studio Centraal was a new one for me and coming in very well
  • Nice to hear Blauwe Reiger with a music programme for a change, although there was some heavy interference from stations either side
  • Eldorado is always a good listen with nice music and a fine presentation style - and an equally good signal
  • Underground from England was doing a good job with a music programme on 1625 and a steady signal
  • Great to hear Pandora for the first time in a while. Cracking signal and modulation quality. I made a short recording using my mobile phone, which you can listen to here

Holiday time!

I am with my family in Cornwall for a few days, in the south-west part of England. If I look through the window of the caravan I can see the sea - and lots of rain! I have a portable Sony receiver here, and a small indoor loop:

  • As you can see from the stations listed, the signals have been coming in very well with the small setup at this side
  • Today's biggest surprise was hearing the voice of Relmus Radio on the microphone of Radio Barones, together with Radio Batavier. Also in the studio was the operator of Radio Napoleon - a pirate party!
  • It was an evening with plenty of big power on the band, with supreme signals from Orban, Spanningzoeker, Calipso and Barcelona, as well as Baro
  • Interesting to hear Kruik with a programme as he is usually heard qsoing
  • Grutte Pier was doing very well with a strong signal and good modulation
