Radio Northern Europe International Show 9 announcement
It’s our pleasure to announce RNEI #9 to you!
RNEI 9’s music features:
An artist introduction to a brand new group from the Faeroe Islands with their first song announced by Heidrik from the band
A candidate for Denmark’s Eurovision from 2020
A catchy Swedish song I really like at the moment
The return of Evelina and Zupermaria
Some traditional Icelandic and Samí music I think a lot of you will like
A Norwegian song from the 1970s that I recently discovered with a beep but no boops
Our first Estonian song to start of the dance segment
Fading into a Danish dance song to end off the show
RNEI 9’s digital experiments on Shortwave:
Easypal QAM16 7zip file transfer (of a website!) embedded into our interval signal
A few hidden experiments (Running JS8Call nearer the end isn’t a bad idea ? )
DominoEX22 embedded in the final song
Please note: On WRMI the broadcasts are 30 seconds shorter necessitating a shorter interval signal and therefore a shorter Easypal segment than the Channel 292 and Onda broadcasts. Expect potential changes e.g. QAM64 or lesser error correction modes. The version sent to World FM, Unique Radio and later On-Demand will be the “HQ” version, meaning it doesn’t have the Easypal (because it sounds nasty) nor does it use the Comb Stereo system.
TIAEMS for this month is really good complete with MFSK data and lots of great music!
As promised the Saturday 6070 kHz broadcast will be the first one on shortwave carrying the new show!
QSLs are running massively behind schedule, we are very sorry, show first, website second and QSLs third at the moment making very little time to reply to them. We have got some ideas to speed up the process soon though!
Sending you all good wishes and hoping you can listen and enjoy the show,
Just writing to announce RNEI #7 & TIAEMS August 2020 starts on Sunday the second of August 2020!
Our show is packed with some great pop and dance music from Northern Europe including quite a few Icelandic and Norwegian songs this month and a very interesting song from the UK too!
There is a little less traditional music than is average this show which I’ll make up for next month, but hopefully you’ll enjoy what is in this month’s show!
Our digital this time is PSK500R at the end of the show and TIAEMS is MFSK 64.
The Stereo Decoder has been updated so we recommend you download the latest one, it sounds much less artefact-y!
Radio Northern Europe International #6 & TIAEMS July 2020 annoucement!
This is just a little announcement post for the next instalment of RNEI!
Our show for July 2020 will have a few pop, traditional and dance songs for you to enjoy!
We are also trialling a digital text system using MFSK16 that could potentially run throughout next show. It’s a little above 5K audio so to decode it you will need to adjust your equipment to receive it!
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Roseanna, who shares the following announcement from Radio Northern Europe International:
Last broadcast was pretty successful with many wonderful reception reports and some people sending in decodes of the stereo which is amazing to hear!
A reminder to go to https://rnei.org/stereo/ to learn how to decode the stereo, it is real stereo over a mono shortwave transmitter!
RNEI show 4 is half dedicated to Eurovision entries so the first half of the show is an entery from each Nordic country and after that we take a trip to some Faroese and Irish traditional musics before ending with our favourite Eurovision entry from this year and the final song containing the MFSK 32!
TIAMS has made another 30 minute express music show for after our broadcast for you to enjoy!
RNEI #3 features 30 minutes of our favourite music from all over Northern Europe; Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland this show. I’ve really enjoyed choosing the music and putting it all together, I really hope you enjoy listening to it.
We will also have the playlist sent in MFSK32 embedded into the final song, very similar to show #1 (we’ve worked extra hard to make it as hidden as possible which was a massive challenge this time, it’s in 2 parts during the final song with an RxID at the start of the final song).
Just like last month, TIAMS has been kind enough to join forces and make us a 30 minute express version of his show which I have loved listening to and I’m sure you will love it too![…]
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Roseanna, who shares the following announcement posted on her blog [with apologies for the late plug!]:
Radio Northern Europe International has worked with This is a Music Show to make a broadcast consisting of 30 minutes of RNEI and 30 minutes of TIAMS, that’s 1 hour of great music!
We really love what TIAMS has made for us and we can’t wait to share it with you!!
Radio Northern Europe International show #2 will have music from Iceland, Norway, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark and Finland this month, I really love the music we are playing and we hope to introduce you to some new music this month!
Songs 4,5 and 6 are my favourites this show!
We have good news to those of you not in Europe and those of you nearer the transmitter, multiple times throughout the month! RNEI #2 will broadcast 5 times on 6070 kHz at the following times:
Saturday the 7th of March 2020, 10-11UTC
Saturday the 7th of March 2020, 19-20UTC
Friday the 13th of March 2020, 11-12UTC
Saturday the 21st of March 2020, 19-20UTC
Sunday the 29th of March 2020, 01-02UTC (this time is very experimental!)
In RNEI Show #2 the final song will have the MFSK32 embedded into it. This time: text, Emoji and some Icelandic art! (Note, an app like TIVAR shows the emoji!)
TIAMS’ contribution will contain some MFSK64 text and an MFSK64 image!
Many thanks to one of our listeners for suggesting our final MFSK song!
This show Daz has been working hard making an audio processor to try and expand the audio range of RNEI! We have decided on trying to broadcast a flat signal to combat the noise floor. This means that the highs might come across a bit too bright and the bass might feel bit lacking.
Don’t worry, a little bit of EQ on the receiver should reverse it ending up with a better frequency range than before! Most standalone radios should already apply a high frequency reduction however SDRs can omit this!
You can send your reception reports, feedback and suggestions for RNEI to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Wishing you good reception conditions and all the best,
