Special Radio Netherlands broadcasts starting January 17 and 18, 2015

RadioNederlandPeter De Groot writes:

A series of special Radio Netherlands broadcasts will begin on January 17th and 18th, 2015.  Presenters will be John van den Steen, Jerry Cowan and Tim Thomasson. See frequencies and times below:

  • 0100 to 0200 UTC on 7,570 kHz
  • 0100 to 0200 UTC on 11,790 and perhaps 13700

Peter sent no more information than this, so I’m not sure where the transmissions will originate. Since RNW is no longer on the air, I’m certain these broadcasts aren’t coming from Hilversum.

Hopefully, someone will attempt to record these broadcasts in case I’m not in the broadcast footprint. Would like to add this to the SW Radio Audio Archive.

    Hello all,

    I just want to make clear that this broadcast is not an initiative of Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW) and that the former Madagascar RNW station, now operated by MGLOB S.A. in Talata Volonondry, will not broadcast this program, as maybe suggested.

    Best 73,

    Boy, I sure hope this is true! Radio Nederland was my first SWBC station, my first QSL card, and has always been my favorite! Ahhhhh, I’m glad that Keith Perron has reconstituted the Happy Station Show, but Tom Meijer is still my hero! I’ll be listening on January 17-18. Best 73, Tony

      I think you’re right, John, in fact, Mike Barraclough noted on Facebook: “7570 is a WRMI registration 0000-2400, nothing that seems likely on the other two frequencies as of the January 6 HFCC update.”
