Radio Arcadia

Radio Arcadia*, utilising the transmitter of Radio U-Boat 66, was logged on 2 September 2014. This free radio station "dedicated to fusion and jazz" was heard playing "Get Your Kicks on Route 66", "Stop This Game" and several other terrific jazz tunes between frequent station IDs and jingles from 20.05 to 20.30 UTC. Reception on 6.850 kHz was (SINPO) 54555 - powerful signal with slight over-modulation and occasional utility QRM. 

Reception report was emailed on 2 September 2014. Two eQSLs followed within an hour of submission. "Captain Arcadia" also replied with information about the station, stating: "I confirm your nice report and thanks for SWL! Arcadia is a Thematic Free Radio only for Jazz and Fusion Music. Power only 30 watt Carrier / max 50 watt AM on Medium Waves (only Local). At this moment I'm using a friend's radio site U-Boat 66, that is located in Milano, Italy. Maybe in the future I will have my own transmitter...I hope!" Hope so too. Thank you, Captain Arcadia!


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