Observations

  • Propagation conditions are not at their peak right now for listening to the Dutch MW pirates here in England. However, there was plenty to listen to on Tuesday evening. You saw the pictures of Relmus's new modulator a couple of days ago, and he was testing it out on 1655. By the end of the test, the modulation was booming and sounding great
  • Vuurvogel has been busy in the last few weeks and we have heard him qsoing several times. On Tuesday night, however, he appeared to be testing a much bigger transmitter which was blasting a very strong signal into our location. He was also talking in English with the ID of Radio Firebird International - and that voice sounds very famous. I remember it on my radio many years ago with some tremendous late-night programmes
  • Kolibrie was a new one for me and was on air with a long music programme. We made a nice recording that will be one of the many featured on the next MW Pirate Review which will be available to download in March
  • Napoleon signed on very late and played some music into the early hours which was a nice surprise. He has used 1615 a couple of times recently and it is a good frequency
  • There was a late-night qso into the early hours of Wednesday morning that featured Dutch stations Arrianne, Pandora, Casablanca, Polkaman, Jeneverstoker, Veronica, Bluebird and Barcelona, several of whom were also chatting to Radio Jaguar from Serbia
