Atlantic 2000 International (France / Germany)

Atlantic 2000 International was logged on 1 April 2012 via the internet after attempting to receive the station on short-wave. A test transmission was broadcast from 08.00 to 09.00 UTC on 9.480 kHz. Signal was inaudible given geographical location and propagation. Even if it could be heard -- and it is highly unlikely  -- CNR operates on this frequency. URL used was: The website is registered with a server in France, but I've seen the same QSL for the short-wave transmission indicating the transmitter site was in Germany.

Nevertheless, a reception report was emailed to Atlantic 2000 International indicating the short-wave conditions. Reception on the Internet was clear, good  fidelity and uninterrupted streaming. Later in the evening, I received the following email: "Thank you very much for your reception report.You will receive our QSL-card in a few days. The broadcast will be repeated next Sunday at 1000 UTC on 9480 kHz and on the Internet."

An eQSL arrived on 7 April 2012, along with this message: "Thank you very much for your reception report. Our very first from Malaysia! We are pleased to send you our QSL-card and information sheet. Have a very good weekend."

Atlantic 2000 will be on the air again this Easter Sunday, 8th of April, at 10:00 UTC (12:00 CEST) on 9480 kHz, with a repeat of the broadcast of the 1st of April. Their stream will be active at the same time on their website.
