September 18th and 19th PCJ Radio International will present part 3 of From The Radio Netherlands Archives.

In the 1960s to the late 1970s Radio Netherlands produced radio dramas that were for export to radio stations overseas.

Some of the radio plays were commissioned specially for RNW and others were adaptations of popular Dutch plays.

There will be a special E-QSL issued for this program. PCJ Radio International’s partner stations will receive this program in two parts.

The program will be presented by Paulette MacQuarrie.

  • Europe: 0600 to 0800UTC – Frequency 7780 kHz
    September 18, 2016
  • North America: 0100 to 0300UTC – Frequency 7570 kHz
    September 19, 2016

At the last minute we had to make a frequency change for our special broadcasts to Europe.

The time will remain the same: 0900 to 1000UTC

But we will not be using 17825 khz.

The new frequency is 11580 khz.

Nothing else has changed.

As a reminder, here’s the weekly schedule:

Time: 0900 to 1000 UTC

November 14th – Say It With Music
November 21st – Call it Ukraine
November 28th – Rockin’ with Raoul
December 5th – Classics with David Monson
December 12th – Special Jazz For The Asking
December 19th – European radio during WW2 (documentary)
December 26th – Special listeners programs

Richard points out that PCJ has switched their transmitter site from Trinco to WRMI; because of this, listeners in North America might also be able to hear the programs.

Keith’s review of the Sangean ATS-405

Keith Perron’s review of the new Sangean ATS-405 appeared in the last show of Media Network Plus. There is an archive of the show on the PCJ website for you to listen:

The review’s at the beginning of the episode and Keith had multiple complaints about performance, build quality and the radio’s overall engineering. I don’t remember him having anything positive to say about it. Sad because I had hoped this new Sangean would be better.

Thanks for the link, Mike. For what it’s worth Jay Allen was actually mostly impressed with the ATS-405.

I’ll receive an ATS-405 later this week; and I’m very interested to see how it compares to other portables like the Tecsun PL-310ET, CC Skywave, and Tecsun PL-660. I’ll certainly report on what I find.

Here’s the audio from the Media Network Plus review:
