Late-night listening

I made a trip to Wales with the family on Thursday, so there wasn't a great deal of time for radio listening. However, I had a quick tune around late in the evening and found some activity at the top of the MW band. Here's what I heard:

1615       2310       Gedrocht van Twente 25222-35333 music programme
1638       2315       Morgenster 45444 qsoing
1625       2317       Noordzee 45444 qsoing
1625       2321       Montecarlo 45444 qsoing
1638       2345       Bluebird 55444 qsoing

  • Gedrocht van Twente was on 1615 kHz once again tonight. That's the fourth day in a row I've heard them, but what is interesting is that I've heard very little talking on the microphone - it would be good to hear some voices every now and again, although I have a suspicion the team might be a little too busy with the beers to give much thought to the programming output! From what I understand Gedrocht is also active on the air during the daytime, signing on early and closing down late - usually at around 0100 UTC. This is quite rare for a MW pirate as transmissions are usually sporadic and for a few hours at the most.
  • Nice to catch Morgenster on 1638 kHz. He was putting in a fine signal during his qso with Noordzee and Montecarlo. Bluebird was sending over his usual powerhouse signal when he popped up with a report and a few records.


  1. Great to see you posting after the long break (and long hot summer). Look forward to more blog reports in, what I hope is not too cold a winter but good for MF propagation !

    1. Only MW here Mr Mustang. There are already lots of good SW blogs with Terry, SW Dxer and Irish Paul. Best greetings from across the water.
