Odynn back on MW
Last Monday (September 28) there was a return to MW for a pirate who has concentrated on SW for the last couple of years. Radio Odynn was back on 183 metres, testing with his new SK010 transmitter. And the following evening he was on the air again, just for a few minutes. Even though conditions were poor, his signal with 35 watts of power was making it across the Netherlands, the North Sea and into the UK. He sent these pictures from the studio while he was testing.
The transmitter Odynn used when he was last on MW has gone and is now with another regular broadcaster at the top of the band. His new purchase, that you can see above, means he can continue to transmit on shortwave, but also has the option to use 1.6 MHz. Next time I hear him I might even have a nice cup of tea in the mug he gave me when I met him in the east of the Netherlands a few years ago!
