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. https://radiodelta.am reports > Worth to be listened well made and entertaining! br Kari
Hei alle sammen, 
There's going to be some big changes to our broadcast schedule starting this December and our Annual Report for 2021 full of insider statistics is being published. And we will be bringing you some amazing Christmas songs too! Firstly our Annual Report has now been published here. This report contains details about the music we play, the running costs of RNEI and how we are making our decisions. If you want to help support us we have a Patreon here
We'd also love it if you could email us what your favourite song from 2021 was for the January "best of 2021" special! Now on to the fun stuff, RNEI #24 is our December & Christmas show in one! It will feature:
    Fun Christmas music from Norway
    Punchy Swedish Pop from Petra Marklund
    Silent Night but it's ABREU
    Lea Heart helps it feel like Christmas

We have a bonus broadcast from Channel 292 this month that is aimed at 332° targeting Northern Europe between Ireland and Finland and Southern Europe between Ukraine and Italy. This happens because there is some backbeam with these directional antennas so give them a go and see what happens!
If you miss the show you can always catch up on demand and, if you prefer to only hear our music, we have Spotify Playlists of each show usually published shortly after the first broadcast of the show!
We really hope you enjoy the show and look forward to receiving your feedback,
God jul alle sammen! Roseanna

    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.

Uutislaari / Radio Caroline kiittää

Friday 3rd December: Transmitter engineer Alan Beech reports

A big thank you from everyone here at Radio Caroline to all those who have sent in reception reports over the past week via our website and other means for our improved 648 AM service.

To say that we have been rather overwhelmed and inundated would be an understatement! With just a few exceptions all feedback is that we have a healthy increase in signal and audibility. That was the main aim of our power increase – to improve the signal in our primary coverage areas of Essex, Suffolk, parts of Norfolk and Kent. We wished to overcome the increasing amount of interference caused by power lines and overhead telephone lines whilst on the move and the high number of household devices that cause interference within the home. Any perceived extension of our coverage area is incidental but obviously welcome.

We did receive numerous reports from far off locations saying our signal was still poor and could we increase it some more. Sadly not, as we are licenced by OFCOM to provide a community radio service in the aforementioned areas and that limits the power we can use. Any further increase in power would also significantly increase our electricity costs too as high power radio transmitters have a phenomenal appetite for electricity. We must always be aware of the vagaries of medium wave transmission and reception, and during these winter months the signal may well travel much further and give a fairly steady daytime signal in remote locations, but once the days start to lengthen again in the spring, that reception may well tail off. Night-time always gives extended range to our signal and it has been heartening to see reports from as far away as Portugal, Italy, Czech republic and Northern Finland. Of course, whilst our signal travels a long way at night other stations on the same frequency also travel further and often reception of Caroline in areas with a fair signal during daytime will have poor reception and much interference at night.

A fair number of reports mention our audio quality, and this is something we are aware of. We woud like to point out that options for reliable high speed connectivity at our transmission site are somewhat limited, and we are currently using a 64kb/s feed to site, which can tend to limit quality. However, many of the reports also suggest that our audio quality is excellent, so it is very much both a personal taste and a function of the radio you are listening on. Hopefully we can make adjustments to this to everyone's satisfaction in due course. For those with an interest in such matters we are using the same DSPx processor we installed in 2017 and the new transmitter is a Harris DX25U, previously located near Rotterdam and used on 828Khz. We are running an authorised radiated power of 4kw from the omni-directional "reserve" antenna at Orfordness.

For those who sent in comprehensive reports and requested a QSL card we will try our best to get acknowledgments issued as soon as we can. As always, please bear in mind that we are all volunteers and already give significant amounts of our free time to keep Caroline on air and there are a LOT of requests!
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! :)
Perjantai 3.12.21
Non-normal conditions; I wonder if it was caused by the sun. Ups and downs though the signal as itself was like a strong one. But therefore I made a new comparison.. sound clips from 3 diff Kiwi sdrs 1) Iiitti 2) Skåne in S-Sweden 3) Götaland in W-Sweden --- 
eka selvästi sivusuunnassa kuuluvuuden vertailuyritys... valistunut arvaus oli, että etelä-Ruotsissa oli parempi sinkku, mikä myös toteutui.
