Stations logged by Mika Mäkeläinen in 2000


Stations logged on July 13-14th and November 26th have been heard at Jim's summer cottage in Bromarv in Southwestern Finland with a 200-meter-long wire antenna, and those logged on July 15-22nd at a rented summer cottage in Punkaharju in Eastern Finland, using two 50-meter-long wire antennae. The rest have been heard at my home in Vantaa, next to the capital Helsinki.

 Europe
 kHz: day.month. time UTC: station, comments:
153 6.10. 1900 NRK Ingøy with a special bilingual English-Norwegian transmission, with features about life at Ingoy and NRK history
576 2.9. 2303 Mega R, Schwerin. Nowadays even with proper IDs, not just non-stop techno as in the beginning.
612 18.2. -1758* R Baltic Waves, Vilnius. v/s Editor-in-chief Siarhiej Shupa. Address: P.O.Box 3245, LT-2013 Vilnius, Lithuania.
666 17,18.7. 2004 R Sombor, Sombor, finally with local programming.
666 4.10. 0429 SWR Bodensee Radio, Bodenseesender
711 11.3. 1630 R Donetsk, local px ends at 1700
711 4.10. 0359 SWR1 Baden-Württemberg, regional programming, from three TX sites
711 13.10. 0413 R Nis, local temperature every few minutes in this morning show
864 5.10. 0320 R Blagoevgrad, Blagoevgrad, strong interference by Egypt. Back to national programming at 0330. This is a tough one to catch, now audible thanks to very auroral conditions - just like the next one.
873 5.10. 0312 R Stara Zagora, Stara Zagora, giving frequent local IDs. Local programming even after 0330, unlike the 864 Bulgarian
963 22.1. 2002 R Shumen, Shumen, my first catch with the new K9AY
981 22.1. 2159 R Varna, Varna
1035 6.5. 2200 R Nationaal, still hasn't verified
1035 6.10. 0333 R Regina Banska Bystrica, Banska Bystrica. Back to national programming at 0400.
1071 22.11.. 1610 R Dnepropetrovsk begins local programming at this time. Station name still unclear, but all commercial spots are to this city. Occasionally beating Slovakia in signal strength. 
1116 26.11. 0750 R Blomendaal started with an interval melody, program began at 0800 UTC.
1188 23.9. 1902 R B2 92 news programming and Radio Drina music programming (both in Serbian), transmitter site later confirmed as Marcali, Hungary. However, others still suspect that this might be the mothballed TX site at Szolnok. Anyhow, after a few days with Yugoslav stations, the frequency has been used by the IBB. When I first heard the station, telephone numbers for ANEM, the Independent Media Association were announced within both programs, so - on the eve of the interesting elections - this seems to be an operation of the Yugoslav opposition, combining various FM sources. Radio B2 92 was said to broadcast on 89.2 and 93.0 MHz, and Radio Drina on 93 MHz.
1233 5.11. 0206 R Trafic, Rocourt. Also audible on 1125, but weaker.
1332 3.5. 2136 R Nationaal
1350 6.10. 0355 R Györ, Györ. Strong, but unfortunately no sign of R Szolnok.
1350 25.10. 0355 R Szolnok, for once this one was audible.
1377 18,22.11. 1336 R Nikolayev, Mikolayiv
1503 13.2. 0358 Belgrad 202, Belgrade
1539 12.3. 1559 Hit FM via Oniks R, Kharkov
1566 13,16.7. 1858,0003 R Jasenica, Smederevska Palanka
1584 7.3. 0458 1584 AM, Utrecht
1674 25.2. 1645 Rst Bukovina, Chernivtsy (harmonic, 2 x 837)
5935 19.8. 1215 R Caroline, Riga, a special transmission
6035 11.3. 0535-0700* R Racja, Leszczynka
10940.5 6.8. 1720 AFRTS Sigonella, Sicily. On USB. The address for reports is the Naval Media Center, NDW Anacostia Annex, 2713 Mitscher Road, SW, Washington, DC 20373-5819.
11690 5.8. *0903- Scandinavian Weekend R, Virrat. The station was audible by groundwave only as far as 5 kilometers away from the 50-watt transmitter. So this one had to be picked up just around the corner... during the Finnish DX Association summer meeting. The skip would enable it to be heard in Central Europe, but not in Southern Finland.
11720 5.8. -0903* Scandinavian Weekend R, Virrat.

1089 21.7. 2010 BSKSA 2nd program, from an unknown transmitter site. A native speaker - thanks to the help of Jean Burnell - has confirmed the identity of this unlisted station. It may be that Qurayyat from 1098 kHz has switched here.
