World Music Radio on new 15805 kHz  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 28 2018

World Music Radio (WMR) commenced broadcasting on 15805 kHz on December 24th
2018 with a power of 200 W. Transmissions were irregular for the first
couple of days, but should hopefully now be regular. The old transmitter and
the simple aerial willing. Until January 6th 2019 the approx. hours of daily
operation will be 0700-2000 UTC. As from January 7th 15805 kHz will
probably be on the air Saturday-Sunday only.

Power is only 200 W, which of course is a very low on the 19 meter band,
propagation is quite poor on this band now - and the aerial (a simple
dipole) is not very efficient so reception is quite difficult and irregular.
So far - poor to fair reception in Southern Europe has been observed in
daytime till around 1300 UTC and fair to good reception in Ireland,
Scotland, western England and Iceland has been experienced during evenings
around 17-20 UTC.

Transmissions on 5840 kHz continues 24/7 with a power of 100 W.

The transmitter site for 5840 as well as 15805 kHz is Randers, Denmark.


Please note that the current QSL-design will be used for reception reports
covering reception in 2018 only. A new design will be used in 2019.

An eQSL is available for reports sent to wmr@wmr.dk - a reply can be
expected within a month or so.

A printed QSL is available for reports sent to World Music Radio, PO Box
112, DK-8960 Randers SØ, Denmark. Return postage is kindly required. For a
fast reply enclose 5 euro or 5 USD (QSL will be mailed from Denmark, where
postage rates are the highest in the world - 29DKK for a post card). If less
return postage is enclosed, you will still get a QSL-card, but will have to
wait some time till the QSLs can be mailed out from outside of Denmark.

Please note that no QSLs are available for reports made by listening via
remote receivers.


No news as for 927 kHz Copenhagen. Still struggling to find a transmitter
site there.

Best 73s and happy new year,
Stig Hartvig Nielsen,
World Music Radio - WMR
