Boer is Dutch for "farmer". Funken is an adaptation of the German word Funk, meaning "radio". So the station is "Radio Farmer Radio".  ;D

Beautiful signal on SDRs in Scandinavia that have longwire antennas. (Not so much on the ones with small loops or whips.) This dude has a huge signal.

1837 UTC - ID and mentions of listeners in Sheffield, England, all in Dutch, over Dutch vocal music.
1856 UTC - Acknowledging reports in Scandinavia.
2000 UTC (approximately) - TX off the air.

Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...
