Huh... My sister told me about this story yesterday. It makes you wonder.     https://swling.com/blog/2021/03/transmitters-stuck-in-time/?unapproved=662841&moderation-hash=dbb7ae6061a33e50d5e5b3bd9b539f70#comment-662841

That is THE best kind of radio mystery, something I could only dream about. It's like a sc-ifi story where people find a radio station abandoned 50 years ago and turn it on, and it's playing tapes of the personalities from back then.

There is a station that broadcasts on one day a year, official broadcast, not pirate!

That's Radio Öömrang. They broadcast every February 21st for one hour starting at 1600 UTC on 15215 kHz. The broadcast is in German, English and Frisian.

The signal to the U.S. (at least upper Midwest where I am) is solid, S9+20.
