Radio Onda is a station managed by the association ASBL Onda, based in Brussels, Belgium. Our activities are focused on spreading Brazilian culture across the old continent. For this, in addition to the Internet radio, we set up a short wave station, on the frequency 6140 KHz. The transmission site is based in the Netherlands, with 500W of power, which covers a large part of Europe. The programming is quite varied, as you will hear popular Brazilian Music (MPB), National Rock, Samba, Country, among other national styles. In this way, we bring you a great musical variety, with a lot of humor and information, for a public not only Brazilian, but also Belgian and European.
ASBL Onda is a member of HFCC, an international entity responsible for the coordination of shortwave radio frequencies, in addition to the ITU, based in Geneva.

MPB music - what is it? It is typical Brazilian popular music - very entertaining! MPB is also an essential part of Radio Ondas programs!
I put here for you some good examples of that nice music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrvK-8jhbHc

Radio Onda- uutisointia WWDXC:n sivuilta: NETHERLANDS:Radio Onda on 6140 kHz AM; antenna for 9520 kHz is ready.
In a communication from the station I was told that the new antenna for planned 9520 kHz "is ready". Now they are waiting for the transmitter to
arrive: "It is low power, 400 to 500 watts, but enough to cover most of Europe. Hope to put it on air in the next two months or so, I am not sure
about the propagation, if it will be good during day or night, or both, lets see...". vy73
Radio Onda 6140 kHz s/on must have been a couple of minutes ago. Now at 1450 UTC on August 29, SINPO 44444 with music from Brazil.
They are communicating 9520 kHz. I will ask for confirmation.
9520 kHz was confirmed by Radio Onda, a move from former 9530 kHz instead! (Harald Kuhl-D DL1AX, BrDXC-UK groups.io Aug 29 / 30)
Re: Radio Onda on 6140 kHz AM; antenna for 9520 kHz is ready.
? 9520 kHz ? HFCC.org request on 9530 kHz instead. 73 wb jn48or
Radio Onda operates from the Dutch city Borculo on 6140 kHz (500 watt)! In addition to good French music, the best international hits from the 80s and 90s, you will also hear beautiful Brazilian songs! The intention is to start from October/November 2021 with a 2nd short wave transmitter on 9520 kHz. The website is https://www.radioonda.be/.
Radio Onda listeners on a map :P
tuolta sivulta pitäsi saada radioaseman stream-lähetys kuulumaan. Loistavaa ajanvietettä!
"I have recorded the 49 metre band on some of our last DX-peditions, hoping to catch some of the new hobby stations which have popped up in Europe over the past decade.
One of these stations is Radio Onda in Belgium which was noted on 5940 kHz both in January and in October 2020. My reception from October 2020 was answered with a nice e-mail and later also a real paper QSL-card (see above), signed by Julio Roth.
Radio Onda started broadcasting on shortwave in January 2020 using a 500 watt transmitter located not in Belgium, but rather in Borculo in neighbouring The Netherlands. Julio says it was impossible to receive a licence to operate on shortwave in Belgium so instead he opted for The Netherlands, eventually becoming the first private legal shortwave station in the country. As everybody know, The Netherlands is a paradise for illegal pirate shortwave stations though so certainly not the first shortwave station in the country! 🙂
Julio says he hopes to get a DAB+ licence to operate in their home city Brussels too. For now, Radio Onda only operates on shortwave and by streaming. The shortwave frequency has now changed from 5940 to 6140 kHz. Radio Onda is run by the nonprofit association ASBL Onda, catering to the Brazilian population in Brussels. In addition to Brazilian music, the station also plays other pop music."
Arild´s DX Diary
Politicians who deny the light of the sun? You can fill entire football stadiums with it. For example, in Belgium – officially – the AM no longer exists. Licenses for both medium and short wave are therefore no longer issued. Although the country was allotted a whole spawn. And that leads to special situations, of which this is one. Radio Onda is a Belgian shortwave broadcaster with a... Dutch license in its pocket.
The radio is managed by the non-profit organization Onda, with its registered office in Brussels. The format consists of a mix of French and Brazilian music, with the intention of making Brazilian culture better known. Therefore, in addition to the web radio, a shortwave station was also started on 6140 kHz, with a power of 500 Watt. The transmitter is located in Borculo, a Dutch municipality in the Achterhoek, province of Gelderland. From there, a large part of Europe is reached. (see also map below)
The programming is quite varied, from Brazilian popular music (MPB), national rock, samba and country to many other national styles. With the focus on the 80s and 90s of the last century. The musical variety is great. Humor and information are not shunned. The aim is to reach not only a Brazilian, but also a Belgian and European audience.
The non-profit organization Onda is a member of HFCC in Geneva, the international body responsible for the coordination of shortwave frequencies. Onda hopes soon to be able to broadcast via the digital ether in the European capital. (TB – courtesy of HV)
