R. DeeJay Alexandroupolis - R. Amore, Napoli

This week I got two QSL-e-mails, both from great South European historical culture-cities.
Radio DeeJay (www), Aleksandroupolis, Greece confirmed my tentative report. I heard their relay on 93.3 MHz which is located in Orestiada. Listen their very professional jingle (taken from their webpage).

Another nice QSL came from Napoli, South Italy. Radio Amore (www) confirmed my reception of their Napoli-transmitter 105.8 MHz. They told that the station has 12 repeaters around Campania and this tx has 4 kW power.
Very exotic QSLs for the end of 2008!

Xmas-card from Radio Vladimirci, Serbia

In May 2008 I visited a little Serbian FM-station Radio Vladimirci (www)with extreme-DXer Jim Solatie (Espoo, Finland).
I heard this station here in Finland on August 2007 (mp3). When we visited the station, Sandra was on the air (click the photo>).

Now, on Christmas day 2008, I got a nice Xmas-card from this station (see below)!

Vladimirci is broadcasting on FM on 89.6 MHz to a very little Vladimirci-city (only 1.900 people, 20 000 in the whole municipal). According to the photos found from internet this station seems to be very lively and going strong.

Reply from Rado Bubamara, Svrljig, Serbia

Last week I got a nice reply, written in Serbian, from Radio Bubamara (www), from a little town called Svrljig. There are only 7 700 people living in this town (17 000 in the whole municipal) and it is located 30 km NE from a big city Nis.
Radio Bubamara is the first local private radio station established in south east Serbia !!!

It began official broadcasting in 13.May. 1992 and it is owned and operated by Joca & Milos Miladinovic.

I heard this station on 93.5 MHz last summer. Now they have noved to 96.5 MHz. In the reply they wondered the weather conditions bringing their signal up to Finland.

Reply from Radio Toxotis, Giannitsa, North Greece

On Sunday evening 7.12.2008 I sent e-mail to a few Greek FM-radio stations about their signal in Finland! I got one nice reply from Radio Toxotis FM (www) from a little town Giannitsa, from North Greece. There are about 26 000 inhabitants in this city.
The station-owner kindly confirmed my old clip from summer 2000. Here my mp3. This seems to be quite big commercial city-station according to their large web-pages. There is a lot of information.
I think I have heard this same station in mid 1990's under name Radiofonikos stathmos Toxiatis on 96.7 MHz (mp3-clip), but I did not have any comments of this reception from 1994.

Reception reports to Italy

During the first week of December I e-mailed 22 reception reports to Italian FM-stations!! I will write here the results very soon. How many replies I will have? Also I will mail Greeks later.

I bought new receiver: Sony XDR-F1HD

A few weeks ago I bought a new FM-receiver from USA:
Sony XDR-F1HD !!!
This is very good tuner even for experienced FM-DXers. It has good sensitivity, signal separation in tight places, like 0.1 MHz, and it gives good audio. There has been no conditions to test it well, but I suppose this will be n:o 1 tuner in ythe coming summer-Es-skips. Very interesting.
The price is only 80 - 100 USD + post (about 50 USD) + taxes. Total around 100 euros. This model is sold only in US market with digital HD-radio system and 10 khz AM-steps. But it is worth of ever cent !

New FM-stations to Turku

I have been very busy at work after summer and therefore no time for DXing:

I just opened two new FM-stations to Turku-city. They are Radio Melodia (www)(89.0 + 88.5, 91.8) and Zoom FM (www)(93.4 MHz - 50 W).
Provincial Radio Melodia is playing Finnish music and oldies for 35+ and Zoom FM is a small pop/rock-station in Turku-city for 15-30 years old listeners.

Now I have some time for DXing after big rush of music scheduling and jingle building etc.

14.8.2008: Istanbul FM-stations audible in Finland!

Istanbul FM-stations were audible in South Finland with strong RDS-stereo-signals for 2-3 hours. The band was full of Turkish-stations up to 108 MHz after midday UTC!
However, here in SW Finland the opening was not as good as around Helsinki. Signals were mostly weak over 101 MHz here.
There are even 103 legal FM-stations in Istanbul (listed here) !!!

One "funny" thing was that I identified all 3 Istanbul "Powers" around 100 MHz: Power Türk 99.8, Power FM 100.0 MHz and Power XL on 100.2 MHz !!!
Also Italians and some other counties were shortly up before Turkey.
I drove from work to listen for some time, but nothing exceptionally interesting was not heard by me (I mean stations "never-heard-before in Finland").

Very interesting and surprising condition in August, not expected!

3.7. - 28.7: Poor Es-conditions continue

This summer has been one of the worst Es-seasons so far, especially for the time around mid-summer, which has normally been the best time for that!
After 8th June there has been Sporadic-E on FM only on three days: 25 and 26.6 and 2.7!!
Last over 3 weeks 2.7 - 26.7.2008 have been silent!! Incredible!

We have still some time, until the end of August (which is usually the worst after June-July) but this does not look good!
One nice thing is that Es does not disturb workdays. I am now building new FM-station to Turku.

Short report from Serbia Tour (17-25.5.2008)

I visited Serbia for one week (17-25.6.2008) with another fanatic DX-er Jim Solatie (from Espoo, Finland).
We visited 19 FM-stations in Central-Serbia and fetched QSLs for ourselves and our DX-friends in Finland. Here is a report of this busy week.

First some basic facts about Serbian radio today:
There have been hundreds of FM-stations broadcasting without license for many years. The things are now chancing. Forexample in Belgr
ade over 10 stations are closed within 2 years.

Serbian broadcasting authority has just published a list a frequencies and new license holders for the whole country. About 2/3 of the stations broadcasting today will be closed down. Forexample only a few frequencies will be given to Pozarevac where even 20 stations are now on the air!!
The MD of Boom 93 (Pozarevac) said that the illegal broadcasters will have heavy penalties.
The owner will get 7000 € and the station separately 15000 € penalty! We will see if they will really raid the stations, especially in the countryside.

A few stations we visited, were already closed down, or will lose license - or they even have to move to new area!! It is supposed that most of the stations without a license will close during a few next months. This means that Serbian FM-radio will be less attractive in the future!
So, this was the last chance to visit many of these stations!

We visited these stations for QSL. I am ashtonised of very kind people everywhere: >Click photos>

Pancevo 18.5: - Radio Safir 89.6 MHz. This station was closed week before! Standing at the door was frustrating experience...

I am going to Serbia, 17. - 25.5.2008 !!

I am going to Serbia in May 17-26th, just before and during Eurovision Song Contest in Beograd.

I will visit many local legal FM-stations (at least 10 stations) in Beograd and in smaller cities around the capital. I will do that trip with my DX-friend (Jim from Espoo), so it will be radio 24h, FM- and pirate-radio.

We hope that we can be on the air on some bigger MW-pirate radio from Serbia on some late evening. It could be interesting to try to reach Europe from Serbian pirate between 1600 - 1700 kHz!
I will inform here about the possible broadcast from Serbia. It would be fantastic to take GSM-phone-callings and reports during the brodcast.

The happenings in Serbia does not look good just now. I hope everything will go better because we have already booked the flights!!
