The class of 2018

At the start of each new year I like to look back and scroll through all my logs and notes and calculate how many different Dutch MW pirates I've heard during the previous 12 months. And I can reveal that during 2018 I logged 154 stations operating from the Netherlands.

When I did this last time I counted up that I had received 172 stations in 2017, following on from 167 in 2016, and 185 in 2015.

A couple of names in the latest list are alternative identifications and as usual several of the operators are actually based across the border in Germany.

The numbers might be down a little bit this time, but I didn't do a great deal of listening during the summer and I kept no logs between the beginning of July and the end of October. Had I have done, I'm sure the numbers would have been up there with the total from the previous year, if not above. In short, it seems the MW pirate scene in the Netherlands is holding up very well.

All the stations listed have been heard on my own receivers at an inland location in England. My antenna is the Wellbrook ALA1530LN loop and my receivers are the Lowe HF-150, Lowe HF-225 and Kenwood R5000.

If you've heard any station not listed during the last 12 months, get in touch and let me know. And if you've heard a station and don't know what it is, send me a recording and I'll be glad to help out. You can email me or make contact with the Twitter or Facebook pages.

  2. Thanks for another year's guidance through the exciting world of AM free radio! I only have an indoor antenna, but I manage to hear medium wave pirates every evening, pretty much! Radio Barones, Radio Vrolijke Minewerker, Radio Bluebird and Radio Armada are among those heard over the Christmas and New Year period here in Bristol, plus many unidentified!

    Best for 2019!
