“Greetings on board”: How to receive the broadcast

It has tradition and exudes a very special pre-Christmas mood: On Christmas Eve greetings are sent to the seafarers around the world from 8:05 pm – 10:00 pm and from 11:15 pm – midnight on NDR Info. And on the most different channels and technical ways, so that the greetings and messages can be guaranteed to be received on all seven seas.

The ship’s crews have several options to receive the program “Greeting on board”. Also the shortwave belongs to it.
The livestreams of the program (20.05 to 22 clock and 23.15 clock to 24 clock MEZ) can be found here: NDR Info and NDR Info Special. In addition, there is the possibility to listen to the program via the NDR radio app. NDR Info can also be received via FM, DAB + and DVB-S radio, NDR Info special only via DAB + and DVB-S radio.

So that all crew members on board – on the seas or in the harbors – can receive the traditional program, the NDR radio has also rented shortwave frequencies:

Seit Weihnachten 1953 bildet die NDR Radiosendung “Gruß an Bord” eine Brücke zwischen den Seeleuten auf den Meeren und ihren Angehörigen in Deutschland: Seeleute schicken Grüße in die Heimat, ihre Familien haben die Möglichkeit, ihren Lieben auf hoher See ein frohes Fest und ein gutes, neues Jahr zu wünschen. Damit die Besatzungen die Traditionssendung auch in fernen Häfen auf den Weltmeeren empfangen können, hat der NDR eigens für Heiligabend Kurzwellen-Frequenzen angemietet.

In der Zeit von 19.00 bis 21.00 Uhr UTC (20.00 bis 22.00 Uhr MEZ) sendet die Kurzwelle am 24. Dezember über folgende Frequenzen (UTC ist die Abkürzung für die koordinierte Weltzeit, die Universal Time Coordinated):
