Scandinavian Weekend Radio special broadcast this weekend

Scandinavian Weekend Radio will broadcast for 24 hours during the Finnish DX Association’s 50th Annual Summer Meeting, Friday, August 3 and Saturday August 4, 2012.

Try to catch Scandinavian Weekend Radio’s broadcasts when conditions are favorable for your part of the globe. Their online radio schedule could be a bit confusing for those of you new to SWLing–I’ve produced a simple broadcast schedule with times in UTC below:

  • 21:00 – 22:00 UTC on 6,170 and 11,720 kHz
  • 22:00 – 24:00 UTC on 6,170 and 11,690 kHz

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

NOTE: As Glenn Hauser mentions in the comments, “Might point out the power is only 100 watts. If anyone ever hears it outside Europe, we`d like to know.”

      Hi, Glenn, Thanks for the comment. I had overlooked this fact, but it now explains why I’ve had such difficulty in my attempts to hear them. This morning, they were sharing the frequency with RNZI and, it seems, RHC on their higher frequency. When I tuned to 11,720 at one point, I couldn’t hear them, but my WinRadio Excalibur could detect a weak, but steady, carrier. I could hear someone speaking at one point, but it was not intelligible, though I tried every trick in the book.

      I noted your comment in the post, for those who don’t read comments.
