World Music Radio (WMR)


World Music Radio (WMR) has commenced using a new 300 Watts transmitter from April 12 2023 on 15700 kHz after several months with 10 Watts only here.

Thetransmitter is currently being run on a test basis 24/7 – but from next week it will be Saturdays and Sundays only. Occasionally on weekdays (I can put the transmitter on - by request, should anyone want it).  So far results have been good. The signals has been monitored via KiwiSDRs in South Africa, Kenya, Argentina, Brazil, Bonaire, USA, Iceland, Russia, Ireland, many places in Central and South Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. The aerial is a three element yagi beamed south. The transmitter is slightly off channel (a bit below 15700.0 kHz); this will be adjusted as soon as possible. Works will also be done to improve the audio quality on 15700 kHz.

WMR is still on the air on 927 kHz (150 Watts), 5930 kHz (100 Watts), and
25800 kHz (60 Watts). These three frequencies are on the air 24/7. Power on
5930 kHz will soon be increased to 200 Watts. In the last few months 25800
has been monitored almost all over the world - at times - due to the current
high sunspot numbers.

Radio208 has had some issues with a new 300 Watts transmitter on 5970 kHz –
replacing the old 100 Watts transmitter, which was running around 75 Watts
only. The new transmitter has been on and off for the past few weeks.  It
was put back into service again today at  10 UTC, the power lowered to 200
Watts, and hopefully it will continue now. Later, plans are to improve the
dipole aerial for 5970, and thus increase power to 300 Watts again.  Also
problems with the aerial for 1440 kHz. Currently 1440 is running low power
(around 20-30 Watts), so still audible locally. It may take a couple of
weeks until 1440 can return to full power, which may be 500 Watts instead of
the ‘normal’ 400 Watts.  We are considering a new aerial, which would
improve reception in central Copenhagen. Both 5970 and 1440 kHz are on the
air 24/7.

I am very late sending out QSL’s. Sorry! The new WMR 2023 QSL is currently
being designed, and will hopefully be ready by the end of the month.  Kindly
– please – notice that reports using remote receivers are not wanted, and
they are not QSLed. E-QSLs are free of charge of course, but if a printed
QSL card is desired, kindly send five euro – or two IRCs to cover return
postage. Donations are always VERY welcome. Address is: World Music
