Shortwave Radio Recordings: Helliniki Radiophonia

GreeceIt’s been a while now since 9,420 kHz–a former Voice of Greece frequency–should have gone off the air.  Fortunately, it has not.

The station is no longer referred to as the Voice of Greece; it’s now a relay of ERT Open, otherwise known as the Helliniki Radiophonia (you’ll hear this name in the station ID).

Friday evening, I recorded nearly four hours of Helliniki Radiophonia because I love the music programming they air during weekends, yet I rarely stay up late enough to listen live. With this recording, I’ll enjoy Greek music most of my working day today–and you can, too!

Simply click here to download an MP3 of the full recording, or simply listen via the embedded player below.

The music begins, in earnest, a little after 17:00–enjoy:

    Hi Thomas!
    Over the last few days they moved again to 9415kHz, Today, they were back on 9420kHz, but when I was listening, at 09:45 local time (07:45UTC), there was only carrier without audio.
    On the parallel frequency, 15630kHz, along the carrier there was A morse signal.

    All The Best,

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the nice recording! What receiver did you use for this, the CR-1? From the audio response, it seems like a 7 or 8 kHz BW.

      Hey, Guy,

      I used the WinRadio Excalibur to make this recording. It was hooked up and ready to go; the CR-1 was in my travel pack! You’re spot-on regarding the bandwidth–I believe it was 7.8 or 8.2 kHz.

        Ah, come to think of it, the CR-1 doesn’t have a line output jack, does it? That makes recording a little trickier. Line-Out is something I value in a receiver–tabletop, portatop, or portable! SDRs are even easier. In fact, one SDR software package I’ve used is as simple as pressing the keyboard “C” key to start recording an audio clip, and pressing “C” again to stop it! If you change your mind during recording, the “Esc” key discards the file.
