YouTube clip of three separate ID's in English from Radio Europe, a low power* broadcaster in Holland on 6130 kHz. Total clip runtime is a minute and a half:

ID #1 at :12 seconds
ID #2 at :43 seconds
ID #3 at 1:07 min/seconds


*In their email they stated... "6130 has a continuous power of 600 Watt pep this transmitter is running in a quiet position can deliver more power."

If they truly mean 600 watts PEP - then this would really be about 150 watts AM carrier. Either way they are using very low power for shortwave broadcasting!

These ID clips taken from listening/recording session on Jan 26, 2023 from 05:37 until 7:37 UTC.

Reception was noticeably better on the horizontal NVIS antenna than the vertical


QTH SE USA / Florida

ANT - ground mounted trap vertical / inverted L array over buried radial field ... or NVIS full size 160M dipole

Radio Vanuatu third harmonic 11835 kHz (3945 fundamental) as heard From Florida in the USA.
Monitored from 07:30 UTC until their (late) sign off at 10:30 on Jan 16 2023.

Here's a very brief YouTube with music, ID and announcements.


03:00 UTC - Unfortunately, disappointing. Conditions are not so good tonight. Weak and noisy with fading;
03:05 UTC - Unreadable and fading into the noise floor.

RSPduo | Barker & Williamson T2FD antenna

Thank you for the feedback. It was weird last night - some places that normally have a good signal were very noisy and some locations (that are usually noisy) were much stronger.

Thank you!

Caught them right at sign off no ID except SSTV image:

S5-S7 signal here - long gaps between songs - noisy copy but good enough to clearly make out songs - just played Elvis "Caught In A Trap" at 23:44

Noisy SSTV :

UNID 6917 kHz USB 10:42 UTC 14 Aug 2022 playing Hank Williams right now

10:55 UTC - ALL Hank Williams songs so far - very strong signal
11:10 UTC - still all Hank Williams "Lost Highway" right now...
11:11 UTC - "I can't Help it if I'm still in love with you" still strong but sounds like it might be fading
11:14 UTC - "Never get out of this world alive" ... these are all songs that I've played on stage before.

SSTV at 11:17 -no ID - now playing completely different music

Very faint carrier with wisps of audio direct off-the-air here in N Florida at 23:56

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6925 USB 2224 UTC 7 Aug 2022
« on: August 07, 2022, 2226 UTC »
UN ID 6925 kHz USB 22:24 UTC Aug 7 2022 (6:22 PM US EDT)

Weak signal starting to improve - rock music.

QTH North Florida, USA.

Getting some audio but not listenable - even after sifting through bandwidths / filters - very poor at my location.
