Happy New Year

A very happy new year to you from our listening post here in England. 


We were out and about on New Year's Eve, but I managed a little listening before we left the house, and I switched on the radio in the living room when we got back at around 0115. There was quite a bit of activity from the the Netherlands, with powerhouse signals from Vrolijke Mijnwerker on 1630 and Radio Barones on 1625. Nice to hear these two pirates on the air, even though they were a bit close to each other.

A couple of nights back it was good to hear Radio Casablanca on air. Hans, who has been broadcasting for an astonishing 41 years, has been quiet in recent months so it was a nice surprise to hear him blasting out of the radio with a fine signal . . . 


Propagation conditions right now at the top of the MW are not very good at all - long skip, with a few Greek stations rising out of the noise from time to time, and Dutch pirates who are usually blasting in hardly audible. Things can only get better! 

And some recent pirate logs from this side . . .
