Weekend Music Radio (WMR) / Good Ship Venus (GSV)

As you know, recently there have been a number of broadcasts from Scotland's only current "free" shortwave music stations, Weekend Music Radio and the Good Ship Venus. Jack of WMR and Jim of GSV for the foreseeable future both stations will broadcast less frequently. They want you to know that programmes from WMR and GSV will be broadcast maybe once or twice a month, or more often if time permits or maybe not, see below:

This message was left on Irish Paul's Blog: "Hi Paul just to let you know that GSV & WMR will be cutting down their broadcasts to once or twice a month or may close due to a swl with a big mouth and an even bigger ego and not worth the risk ..... feel free to publish that on your blog cheers, Jim"

A great loss to the Hobby radio scene if they close down, I am sure you will agree.

The 48 / 42 metre bands closed to short and medium skip early tonight, around 1745 UTC at my location. The normally reliable signal path between myself and GSV / WMR had closed by this time. No Dutch stations were being heard at the Twente SDR and only GSV was audible from the UK on this receiver. This will repeat and get earlier as we move towards the winter solstice. Hopefully the number of daytime broadcasts will increase, particularly at the weekend.
