on 4243 LSB      direct across the pond
2305 Celtic music, weak, noisy,
2317 SSTV (no hope)

edit on 06 Dec 2019 :
Nobody has documented the 'Free' in the middle of the name. See also a late reply.
So I change the subject line, without the 'Free' in the middle.

This is Radio Ireland -- not Radio Free Ireland -- based on the Legend on the SSTV image.


Pse eQSL to texas1dxer@gmail.com.  Thank you!

Unless otherwise noted, the receiver is my KiwiSDR colocated with W3HFU, Westminster, MD, USA.

'Home" receiver for European low-power radio stations is the SDXF KiwiSDR at Skane, Sweden, unless otherwise noted.
