To The Community Amateurs Radio, Shortwave Listeners, lovers of radiolistening DX and Broadcasters of stations in Medium Wave Band.
Dear Friends, I have the very pleasure to inform you that, in the History of the Italian Radio, today - 18th August2015 - has borned a star !
In fact the scene of the radio band “Medium Wave” from Italy, today is a turning point.
After 11 years since the beginning of the switch-off of historical transmission plant in mid wave of the Public Service of RAI broadcasts on a radio band (MW) that has made the history of radio, will no longer be confidential or restricted to public service but they will be free to be privately operated. This opens the way for an interesting world in which broadcasts Band "Medium Wave" will become the protagonists of a NEW media and the future of the radio hobby. This is the first, interesting milestone reached by the new Law nr. 115 of 29 July 2015 which will open the door to new radio operators <private>.
I wish inform you that a more detailed presentation of this initiative of the Law, is available on the web: http://www.ari.it/. (italian ver.)
The ARI is supporting this initiative and for the protection of an important band in the history of radio, is in first place in the development of a body of opinion to support transmissions in Band "MW".
I invite everyone to read the web page on the website recommended ARI: http://www.ari.it/.
Many thanks and have my best greetings, Alfredo Gallerati , IK7JGI, A.R.I Italian Amateur Radio Association (19/8-2015)

New Italian station, Old Gold Radio, testing on 1611 kHz yesterday with announcements between pop songs. Transmitting with 700 w via Challenger Radio, which has a different program on 1368 kHz, so it must be a new transmitter, I think.
Kai Mauseth, NOR via mwc fb group (30/3-2015)
1611 khz now, confirmed, pirate station near Rovigo Italy that rebroadcasts the signal of IRRS 1368 khz.

I could hear Challenger Radio (which is relaying IRRS at some times) on 1503 kHz // to 1368 kHz on the evenings on March 25th/26th. According to a mail from station owner Maurizio Anselmo it´s a test transmission with 200w from the same site as the 1368 kHz transmission.

RE: 1503 khz new frequency of IRRS-Globe Radio Milan.
1503 khz no signal. Apparently it was a pirate station that was rebroadcasting signal for one day of IRRS-Globe Radio Milan.
Sergio Sarabia (26/3-2015)
1503 khz new frequency of IRRS-Globe Radio Milan from Villa Estense-Italy in parallel to 1368 khz 24h in English and Italian language.

I have heard a new Italian station on 1476 kHz; have heard it a couple of times via the Twente SDR rx, and very strong via http://www.globaltuners.com/receiver/17/js2 ... maybe a local station close to Rovigo.
Fabrizio Magrone reported (Medium Wave Circle FB group) that the station's name is Medjugorje Network 14-76 kilohertz AM and it seems the station is xmitting from the Veneto area. Time pips and synthesized IDs.

Hi Ydun. Just receveived an unexpected mail from Radiomarina's Staff. Attached to it, three pictures of its broadcasting equipment and a nice lighthouse QSL. Contact address is firstname.lastname@example.org (the station also confirms my reception last weekend on 1071 kHz). Further details and picture in my post: http://radiolawendel.blogspot.com/2011/09/radiomarina-1071-khz-le-prime-immagini.html

Hi Ydun, please find a very short YT clip with Italian music heard yesterday, September 3rd on 1071 kHz around 19 UTC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIKfrX4JoO8. I'm pretty sure it was Radio Marina, tho I didn't manage to hear any identification. Format sounds quite the same as other current Italian low power on mediumwave (except for Radio Challenger 1368//1566). Recording made live in Liguria, close to La Spezia.
As I reported on my blog www.radiopassioni.it, I tried on several occasions to look after Marina on 1071 during my brief stay in our DX location in Borghetto Vara, with no luck until yesterday. At least comparing it with a close by Media Veneto Broadcast on 1233, which was quite good and stable during the evening and in the night.
When I did go back on 1071 a hour after the clip was made, Iran was already a strong dominant: no traces of any Marina. I strongly suspect its tests are somewhat irregular.
Ciao, Andy Lawendel (now back in Milan) I (5/9-2011)
Hi Ydun !
I was informed by Maurizio Anselmo of Challenger Radio that the station rised the power on 1368 kHz to 2,5 kW and using a new Folded Dipole antenna. Challenger Radio is rebroadcasting Voice of America at the moment in an experimental phase from 1200-1800 UTC.

Hi Ydun ! Today I received an e-mail verification from Challenger Radio 1566 kHz,
in which the v/s Maurizio Anselmo also informed me about the station´s plan to start DRM-Tests on 1566 kHz within the next 20 days.

Challenger Radio [1566kHz] is transmitting most of the time I programmes from "Onda Cosmica". These a Italian language programmes from Radio Santec in Wuerzburg, Germany. Most of the time they announce a contact address in Milano, but I also heard the announce of the Wuerzburg-address. I´m quite sure that the German in the background, which I also heard on 1566 kHz, originates from an originally German programme with Italian voice over.

RAI is now transmitting 2 DRM audio signals on 846 kHz via Santa Palomba: RAI Radiouno in Stereo with 19,06 kbps and RAI ISORADIO in mono with 12,30 kbps. RAI ISORADIO is a programme for motorway users with pop music and traffic information normally broadcasted only on FM 103,3 MHz.
73 from Austria, Patrick Robic (30/1-2008)
This morning January 15th, 2008 I heard the RAI DRM test with the label "RAI WAY ROMA" on 846 kHz for the first time. So they must have started sometime in the last 24 hours.
