“Euro Radio is Europe’s brand new commercial shortwave station which will begin broadcasting on August 1st 2015.

Many thanks, Neil.  I have checked the Euro Radio Facebook page and it appears they will broadcast on 6205 kHz AM, starting August 1st, 2015. I haven’t seen a schedule at this point, nor noted their transmitter location.

Looks like Euro Radio 6205 is a pirate and not an official station

Found some info –

Greek 2kw transmitter but no location yet….


Thanks, Jarno!

Spread the radio love

    And a new update after a long time in their facebook page announcing transmitting tests giving also an email adress.

    Any idea on times? I’m in northern Australia so will be a stretch unless they are at the right time of the night.

    Just added an update to the post. Jarno believes this is a pirate station, not actually a proper commercial broadcasting station. Funny that they’re seeking sponsors!

    6205 kHz ? Will this be legal ? I thought this is within a maritime band. Very poor propagation around 6 MHz in daytime presently , would ca 7.5 MHz be better ?

    Are Global 24 Radio still alive? I am struggling to hear anything on their frequency here in the UK and can’t seem to find a live internet stream anywhere?

    Regards a website for Euro Radio, not a major issue nowadays with Social Media, as I think this is the best way to get your product out there in most cases.
    It would probably bother me more if they did not have a facebook page 🙂 sure, set up a forum later on a website but for a startup it’s not that important now as there are other ways to get ourself out there, like this site, where there is already a good user base.
    I will listen out for Euro Radio though on 6205kHz 🙂

    That’s quite sketchy. Using EBU’s former logo, just a Facebook page not at all professionally designed, and an email account on a free webmail service.

      To be honest, I was a little surprised they didn’t even have a dedicated website, just a Facebook presence. I suppose the proof will be in the pudding, though, come August 1st.
