Radio Freedom*

Radio Freedom*, transmitting from The Netherlands, was logged on 1 November 2015. Occasional station IDs along with pop tunes, "Kids of America", "Fire", "Here Comes A Miracle", were observed from 09.05 till 09.22 UTC. Reception on 6.295 kHz was (SINPO) 34333 - weak, atmospheric noise and  fading was noted, otherwise transmission was audible and clear.

Who is Radio Freedom? "Freedom Radio is a combination of enthusiastic Dutch shortwave pirates called PowerWave, Etherfreak and Skywave Radio. A few times a year we broadcast from open field locations in different countries of Europe. All the equipment is mobile. The main goal of our transmission is to test new antennae and transmitters and, of course, to "Have Fun". Our last broadcast was 150-Watt output power and 22 metre end fed antenna system."

Reception report was emailed on the same day. An eQSL arrived on 5 November 2015. Thanks a bunch, Radio Freedom!!!
