Radio AC-DC

Radio AC-DC*, transmitting from the Netherlands, was logged on 13 September 2014.Oldies pop/rock music, including Creedence Clearwater Revival (John Fogerty) - "Keep On Chooglin'", Neil Diamond - "Sweet Caroline" and of course AC-DC, was heard from  18.15 to 18.26 UTC. Station ID in Dutch and English was observed, then transmission ended at 18.26 UTC. Reception on 6.245 kHz was (SINPO) 32443 - fair signal strength with intermittent utility QRM, which created terrible listening conditions.

Reception report was emailed the following day. This eQSL and message was received the following day from Conrad at Radio AC-DC: "Good to see that Radio AC-DC also has listeners on the other side of the world, even (if) it's with help from wdr (web-remote receiver). And what a modern world that you can listen to shortwave on your mobile phone. For now an eQSL, but i will send a paper version this week". Thank you, Conrad!


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