Radio Blackbird 6290 AM 1938 UTC 09 APR 2024
« on: April 09, 2024, 1939 UTC »
1938 "Hello Goodbye" Beatles song much QRM from UTs and other noise
Big gap between music
1943 Instrumental accordion
1946 Alpine style music (with some yodelling)
1951 Old style dance music

Thanks for the ID below - I recorded it anyway and will put here
Audio 1 : https://voca.ro/1gJxNo7E1afw

Could it be this one ? Radio Blackbeard studio@radioblackbeard.co.uk     I know the OM sounded with a UK accent and Blackbeard was a pirate long ago.
I will send a report and see if I get a reply

Listening to Short and Medium Wave broadcasts since 1962 as a DXer. Nowadays I listen to 48 and 49 meters mainly for interesting stations. If you like to send me an EQSL my email is bkavana@yahoo.com

Radio Black..... 6290 AM 1938 UTC 09 APR 2024

on 6290.0
1943 music, barely heard in the noise, D music I think
2020 D music, 2028 several IDs, Radio Black..., at last Radio Blackbird
2030 OFF

>>> maybe Blackbeard, but the last syllable is so low...
>>> and Radio Blackbeard is a station active only on 1512 kHz so far
>>> there's also a Dutch MW pirate station Radio Blackbird
>>> listening again, I'm back to my first impression : Radio Blacksun

From Achim tonight :
Radio Blackbird was active this evening on 6290 Khz. Email-address via chatbox jmeezen@gmail.com. This is a nice reactivation, the station used to be active about 10 years ago.


late edit : listening to Achim's audiolog around 2028 it's really Blackbird (not Blackbeard, not Blacksun)
