Radio Europa 24* (Germany)

Radio Europa 24*, in a test transmission presumably from Germany, was logged on 5 August 2014 using a remote SDR receiver located in the Netherlands. Broadcast monitored from 17.45 to 18.15 UTC entailed repeated station interval (guitar tune) and station ID in German, English and Italian. Message in English announced, "I will soon hear this frequency. EUROPE 24 is information and entertainment for whole of Europe. Stay tuned on this frequency." Lengthy guitar composition followed. Reception on 6.150 kHz was (SINPO) 43444 -- fair to good signal strength, audible and clear speech, despite station splatter and some fading.

Reception report was emailed to Radio Europa 24 on same day. QSL card  and letter from Germany arrived in the mail on 7 November 2014.


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