Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Gérard Koopal, who writes:

Dear Thomas,

Just received the following message from CRI’s German language service.

They will stop their German language on shortwave from August 31, 2021.

The only way to listen to their German presence will be via the Internet. Sorry that they made this decision since i listened to them on a regular basis. The internet is no substitute for shortwave!

Original announcement in German:

Return of “radio six international” to shortwave June 6, 2020

(Source: radio six international via Gérard Koopal)

Shortwave broadcast on June 6th

After an absence of five years, Scottish station radio six international returns to the HF bands to mark the outlet’s 57th anniversary.

Saturday Sounds with Tony Currie will air from 22:00 to 24:00 UTC on 6,070kHz (49.39m) via Channel 292’s 10kW transmitter in Germany. The programme will largely feature independent and unsigned music from around the world. QSL cards will be issued on receipt of either one Euro of one US dollar for return postage, with Reception Reports requested to be sent to Radio Six International, 21 Sherbrooke Avenue, Glasgow G41 4HF, Scotland. E-QSLs will happily be sent free of charge.

Launched in 1963 as an afternoon’s entertainment by a group of primary school children, it never went away and after various incarnations – including a spell as Europe’s first commercial cable radio network in the 1980s – the station has been webcasting round the clock for the past twenty years.

For a time, the station maintained a daily shortwave presence from 2004, using the facilities of both IRRS and WBCQ, switching to weekly transmissions from Ulbroka, Latvia in 2005 and daily programmes on medium wave and satellite via RTI in Tatras, Slovakia.

In 2008 the various transmissions were ended to concentrate on the internet service and the provision of syndicated programming around the world. 58 stations now take some or all of our output, with 9 hours a week simulcast on FM in New Zealand and 4 hours on FM in Taiwan.

Our broadcast on June 6th is currently on one-off; however we are considering a more regular return to the HF bands in the future.

Note: Radio Six International is an internet station at www.radiosix.com with audited listeners in 200 countries worldwide. It’s been webcasting since 2000, and syndicates up to 9 hours a week of programmes to its affiliate network of 58 AM, FM and DAB Digital stations around the world.
