HOLLAND/POLAND New entry in A-19 Radio Onda ASBL and Polish Radio Warsaw
0000-2400 on 6030 MRT 001 kW / non-dir to WeEu Portuguese Radio Onda ASBL

ÐÑÐÐÐÐÑÐÐÐÐ ÐÑ Observer Ð 12:15 PM

Onda ASBL? What in the world is that? Where is MRT ? I find it only in the
HFCC site list as:

MRT Margraten HOL 50N48 005E48
So like so many Germans, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland --- Holland also
has a licensed lowpower private SW station --- but on the air 24 hours, or
at all?

Of course, Poland has been gone from SW too, but Warsaw coming back with 10
kW?? (gh, DXLD)
