Radio Alice

Radio Alice*, transmitting from northern Netherlands, was logged on 9 August 2014. A variety of pop tunes by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Roxette, Johnny Cash, Every Brothers, Dr. Hook with IDs in Dutch and English was heard from 19.05 to 19.55 UTC. Reception on 3.905 kHz was (SINPO) 34443 -- fair signal strength with atmospheric noise and occasional deep fading, otherwise audible and clear speech most of the time.

Reception report was emailed on same day and follow-up emails weeks later. Finally, on 21 September 2014, Herman, the DJ and operator at Radio Alice, verified my report with an eQSL and message, saying: "I can confirm your reception. Thanks for the nice mail and the consistency strength of you to send me a new mail. I use an old army transmitter with 150 watt power / G2 AM modulated. The antenne is a peaked inverted V at 8 mtr high." Thank you, Herman.


*Logged using remote SRD receiver at University of Twente, the Netherlands.
