Deltan tunnuskappaleen esittäjä Silvia Swart.


Viime sunnuntain ohjelman korvasikin yllättäen Radio Moniquen päivä taajuudella ja samalla lähettimellä, joten ns. levytoiveemme Finnish Hour -ohjelmaan siirtyivät nyt viikolla eteenpäin 5.12.-ohjelmaan. Kun R Caroline soitti suomalaisen Battle Beastin musaa ohjelmassaan; menin tuubiin ja kopioin yhden heidän kappaleistaan ja muutin mp3:ksi ja pistin sen huvikseni Aartille, joka vastasikin samantien -"soitamme sen ensi sunnuntaina"! Joten tämä oli nyt väliaikamerkki heiltä, että elossa vielä ollaan ja aamulla se taas sitten alkaa :)  yt kkx

5.12.21 -- ohjelma alkoi komeasti Finlandia- hymnillä Suomen itsenäisyyspäivän kunniaksi - lisäksi Finnish Hour oli taas tietysti täynnä suomalaista Euroopassa varmasti ennen kuulematonta musiikkia. On meillä hyvä ystävä Hollannissa. Lisäksi on aikeissa tehdä jouluohjelmaa Suomesta joulun aikoihin.. ja teema saattaa näkyä myös aseman kotisivuillakin! Matskua saa hänelle lähettää... minulta hän jo tilasi paremmat kuvat radiopaidoistani :)  kkx
Tuolta löytyy myös tieto Finnish Hour -radio-ohjelmasta -- tällä hetkellä ainutlaatuinen maailmassa! :)

    Hello! The signal wasn't weak but the quality of sound was so soft that I had difficulties in hearing the talk. There weren't familiar songs either, so I thought I wouldn' t come up with a report. Suddenly at 10.08 the goddesses of short wave gave me two minutes of good reception (SINFO 45434). I heard a ballad about a guy waiting at the station and falling in love with a girl whose name he doesn't know. That's when a DJ said "This is R Delta, the short wave station on 48 metres." After the song you had a DX friendly chain of jingles which ended at 10.22. DJ said "Good morning" and sent greetings to Finland for reception reports. The signal faded away at 10.25. If this report is good enough, I would welcome a QSL.

I am listening with a JRC NRD-525 receiver and outdoor antenna, 500 meter length, since I'm also trying to hear Dutch medium wave stations during the winter season.

    Greetings from Finland! Today, February 13, 2022 I had the great pleasure and honor of listening to your radio station Delta 6020 kHz. When I started listening to your station at 8.45 UTC signal strength was moderate and there were no other stations interfering on the same frequency. Unfortunately there was some atmospheric interference and some signal fading but despite these I enjoy your program. Some program detail: 9.54 UTC Whitesnake song Here I go again and 9.58 UTC ZZ Top Gimme all your lovin. My favourite passtime is DX listening which means listening to foreign radio stations and collecting their QSL cards and I would be deeply grateful if you could send me your QSL card where you confirm I have heard Radio Onda. Thank you so much for your program and I hope I can listen to you again one day. P.s. You have extremely nice web sites. Nice pictures about transmitters and fine world map that states where your listeners are. Sincerely Mika Salmela Toivonkatu 14 FIN-05800 Hyvinkää


Radio Delta International story

Radio Delta International is a nice Dutch free radio station founded in 1971, broadcasting on 6020 kHz and 6005 kHz shortwave from a facility in Elburg the Netherlands. Radio Delta International was unlicensed by any government for most of its early life, it was a pirate radio station with a great history that never became legal. Ever since more than 49 years have passed with ups and downs. No doubt more ups than downs. What kept and keeps us going can be best described as "The love for Free Radio". Reason: "More and more countries are switching off their powerful shortwave broadcasters, because the internet and DAB+ frequencies offer good alternatives. This creates room for free radio forms as that from Radio Delta International."

Every Saturday evening and Sunday we bring you great 'live' shows on 49meters shortwave right across Europe and around the world. No tight formats or playlists, just the best music with Requests and greetings from our listeners. We welcome your Reception Reports, reactions in our Guestbook and Whatsapp messages and by return you'll receive our new eQSL-card with personal notes..and the transmitter!

Rhode & Schwarz SK080 with classic anode/screen modulation, built in 1959. 100% tube-based, 800 Watts RF, sucks 3.4 kVA (one phase!). Radio Delta engineers refurbished this beautiful vintage AM broadcast transmitter. We used this transmitter in the 80's on shortwave 7325kHz. The R&S SK080 has a nice internal modulator with 2 x QB3/300 tubes with a brilliant AM modulation. This R&S SK080 transmitter could modulate around 800 watt nom. Many dutch pirate stations use the smaller R&S SK010 with external modulator, this transmitter can modulate around 130 Watt nom.

The R&S SK family was used by the German Army during the 60's and beginning of the 70's. During the 80's and 90's this army surplus was sold to handlers. It was in the past rather simple to buy such a gear in Germany and Holland. Later became the R&S SK1 (1 kW max carrier power AM, + USB and LSB ) popular. But their mintage was much much less. R&S transmitters have the quality of a "mercedes" car. reports > Worth to be listened well made and entertaining! br Kari
