Logs of Friday 28th August 2015

Solar activity was sufficient to prevent short / medium skip on the 48 metre band throughout the day and evening. 
Signals were only being heard beyond about 500 km, maybe more.
No Western European stations were heard at my location. 
Listeners in Norway, Spain and South - western France reported reception of some stations from the Netherlands. Medium Wave was quite good.

Goodbye Radio 5 - More Dutch MW stations leave the band

From this Friday, Radio Maria and Radio 5 will leave the MW for good. This will affect the Radio 5 transmitters on 747 and 1251. Maria's MW outlet is 675. Alternatives include DAB+ and the Internet. Not much good in the car though!

From the NPO website:
"Programming stops AM Saturday
Listeners beware: The regular program of NPO Radio 5 can no longer be heard from Saturday morning through the AM"

Further details (in Dutch): http://radio5nostalgia.nl/nieuws/2867/programmering-am-stopt-zaterdag

From the Maria website:
"Radio Maria goes digital
After September 1 Radio Maria Netherlands can be heard exclusively digitally. The Catholic radio station disappears from the medium wave (AM) but continues to be received via DAB+ and the internet"

Further details here: http://www.radiomaria.nl/?p=2709


Pirate radio: How today's rebels have exchanged the North Sea for coffee shops and restaurants

No more bobbing about in “pirate” boats on the North Sea or shimmying up urban tower blocks to fix an FM aerial: today’s radio rebels broadcast from coffee bars, record shops and restaurants, commanding global online audiences – and working within the law.

Online stations are now transforming Britain’s radio sector with their specialist knowledge and unique choice of location.

A prime example of the movement is MEATtransMISSION, which operates from the upstairs of a burger restaurant in Hoxton, east London. The station not only broadcasts to diners across the MEATliquor restaurant chain but attracts online listeners from 130 countries and follows rules which might not be recognisable to Ofcom, including: “no bongos”, “no hippies” and “no Coldplay”.

(Extract from the UK daily newspaper The "I")

Celtica Radio

When the Shortwave band is closed or there are no active stations, I often scour the internet for new stations to add to my saved list on the Denon Network Player. I came across a new station the other day and have been listening to it since.

It is a former independent commercial radio station called "Celtica Radio". This station has an interesting history: http://www.celticaradio.com/aboutus.html and a long list of experienced presenters. As I understand it, Celtica plays only music from established and new artists that is out of the jurisdiction of the Performing Rights Society, or Phonographic Performance Ltd.

Have a listen and see whether you agree with my assessment: It is a professional sounding station with an obvious UK sound, but with a definite Welsh flavour. You can find links to listen here: http://www.celticaradio.com/index.html

Many UK stations on the air do not succeed in sounding like they are in any way local, being the output of large commercial enterprises. Celtica sounds to me like a station that would deliver that elusive local feel to the target  audience in Bridgend and Wales in general.

I did a list of all the "free" stations heard by myself in the 6mHz shortwave bands during July and came up with the following totals. 
I did not include stations like Laser where the location is uncertain, disputed or unknown.
Not surprisingly, the number of stations heard from the Netherlands was the biggest again. 

Denmark: 1                  Poland: 1            Czech Republic: 1        Finland: 1           Germany: 2                Norway: 1          Italy 7             U.K: 10
