Radio Shadowman and Radio Fred Flintstone

Radio Fred Flintstone* and Radio Shadowman*, both transmitting from the Netherlands, were logged on 8 October 2014. DJ Fred Flintstone was observed chatting between songs, including Shirely Bassie - "Goldfinger" and "It's A Shame", between 16.54 to 17.00 UTC. Reception on 6.325 kHz was (SINPO) 54544 - good signal strength

At 17.00 UTC, DJ Shadowman signed on and played "Joey", chatted in Dutch over song about Radio Fred Flintstone and Radio Black Arrow and announced station ID "Radio Shadowman" then polka music, rock tune and DJ Shadowman spoke about Radio Fred Flintstone transmitter/antenna, then closed at 17.15 UTC. Reception from 17.00 to 17.15 UTC on 6.325 kHz was (SINPO) 55555 - excellent on all accounts at sign-on; at 17.10 UTC signal worsened to 53443 - due to utility QRM and heterdyning.

Reception report was emailed to Radio Shadowman on 8 October 2014. The above verification was received on 16 October 2014, together with this message: "Beautiful that it comes with a sinpo 54544 -- super! on the SDR receiver Twente -- (not far) from me. I was testing the modulation. I had another modulator behind it. I have no QSL card, but I hope this is also good. Greetings, Radio Shadowman."
