Many thanks to SWLing Post and SRAA contributor, Tom Laskowski, who shares the following off-air recording of Radio Netherlands and notes:
Along with RCI’s Shortwave Listener’s Digest, Radio Netherlands Media Network was another favorite DX program of mine.
Here is a recording of an episode from April 9, 1982 which is the first recording of this program from my archive.
The show highlights are:
- Media coverage of the Falklands War from the British and Argentinian sides,
- Pete Meyers with a report that Radio New Zealand did not shut down, the US-Cuban media war,
- Richard Ginbey with African media news and
- John Campbell with a clandestine radio report.
Audio quality is only fair for this recording.
Date of recording: 4/9/1982
Starting time: 0230
Frequency: 9.590 MHz
Receiver location: South Bend, IN
Receiver: Realistic DX-302
Thank you , Tom! That is, indeed, a most welcome blast from the past!
