to test on 48 meters
Weekend Radio, broadcasting from Finland, is planning to
use three different frequencies in the 49 meter band.
The frequencies are 6170, 5980 and 5990 kHz.
"These new frequencies will be used to better serve
our listeners in our near areas around the Baltic sea, where
the 25 meter band is not well suited", says Alpo Heinonen
of Scandinavian Weekend Radio.
The station continues to use its 25 meter band frequencies
of on 11690 and 11720 kHz.
The station is on the air every first Friday of the month
at 2100 UTC for a 24 hour transmission.

of just music, with announcements thrown in anywhere, like
