[A-DX] Log: Radio 208, 5805 kHz

Fr Mai 1 22:26:54 CEST 2020

Radio 208 von Stig ist seit heute, wie er schon mal in HCDX ankündigte,
auch auf Kurzwelle zu hören (s.u.). Hier in Kiel nur ein ausgesprochen
schwaches Signal, am WebSDR von Twente hingegen ein ordentlich, solange
man das Utillity-Signal ausblendet.

After four unsuccessful attempts over the last couple of months today
Radio208 finally began broadcasting on shortwave on 5805 kHz. The
American built 250 Watts transmitter for 5805 kHz blew up three times in
the process. Then a new British built 250 Watt transmitter was
purchased, but it turned out that the maximum power it could radiate was
164 Watt. However it’s a fine transmitter, so this transmitter has now
successfully been put into operation – running about 75 Watts at
present; will be increased to 150 Watts later.
The transmitter site is Hvidovre, a suburb of Copenhagen and the aerial
is a dipole.
This is the first time for more than 30 years that shortwave
broadcasting is being carried out from Copenhagen. Radio Denmark ceased
broadcasting from its Herstedvester site on in February 1990.
Radio208 still continuous broadcasting on 1440 kHz (500 W) from Ishøj,
also a suburb of Copenhagen.
Both transmitters (1440 and 5805 kHz) are running 24/7.
