ShortwaveService has uploaded the following video (to YouTube) which features the RNW Operations Van used in the recent 70th anniversary broadcast.

I listened to at least an hour of the Saturday broadcast via the U Twente WebSDR. Sadly, I just discovered the audio dropped about 2 minutes into my recording.

Post readers: Anyone else listen to, record or simply log this anniversary broadcast? Please comment!

Schagen Auto Museum

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Gerard Koopal, who shares the following:

Below an article about the return of RNW Netherlands out of a 1958 truck on april 15.
Although i suppose you can’t read German, the times and freq’s should be clear.


… zwar nur für einen Tag aber immerhin:

Am 15. April, also diesen Samstag, gibt es eine Sondersendung aus dem
Automuseum Schagen im Norden der Niederlande. Die ehemaligen Mitarbeiter
Dick Klees, Hans Hogendoorn, Pieter Damave und Ruud Poeze werden aus einem
originalen Ü-Wagen des RNW aus dem Jahr 1958 eine 7-stündige Live-Sendung fahren.

Die Sendung wird über Stream, Mittelwelle van Radio Paradijs auf 1584, 1332 und 1224 kHz und im DAB Kanal 8A in Randstad ausgestrahlt.

Ach ja: Kurzwelle gibt’s auch, von diesen bösen Menschen beim

… auf 7310 kHz zw. 11-12 und 16-17 CEST

Many thanks, Gerard! I found that Google Translate did a fairly good job translating the Dutch article into English–click here to read.

Keep in mind that CEST is UTC +2 hours. Broadcasts will start at 1300 UTC 9:00 UTC (thanks for the correction, Christian!).

I love the sound of this special event. I’ll certainly be listening and, hopefully, recording!
