World Music Radio (WMR) has now commenced test transmission on 927 kHz from Copenhagen starting Wednesday April 14th 2021 at 1130 UTC. It is on the air 24 hours a day 7 days a week and provides local coverage in the larger Copenhagen area. Reception should also be possible in the rest of Zealand, in Southwestern Sweden and along the Baltic sea coast in Poland and Germany.  

It has taken four years to get it on the air. It took a very, very long time to find a transmitter site, and then it also took quite some time to plan the site, erect a mast, design the aerial and do all the constructions and installations.  The site is Hvidovre, Copenhagen; it is the same site as Radio208 transmitting on 5970 kHz.  The power on 927 kHz is going to be 500 Watts, but for the first few days with reduced power.  The mast is only 18 m tall and the aerial is a coil aerial with approx. 400 m of radials.

Meanwhile WMR continuous broadcasting on 5930 kHz (200 Watts from Bramming) also round the clock; however, reception is difficult or impossible at times when 5930 is used by the ‘big boys’ (e.g. VoA from around 16 UTC to 18 UTC and RFI 21-23 UTC).  Also 15790 kHz (200 Watts from Randers) is still in use Saturdays and Sundays 0700-2000 UTC.  In late April or May, WMR plans to start broadcasting on 25770 kHz (150 Watts) from Maarslet in the Southern outskirts of Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark.  

Reception reports to World Music Radio, PO Box 112, DK-8960 Randers, Denmark, are welcome. If possible please enclose return postage (two international reply coupons or five euro) for a printed QSL-card, a pennant and stickers. A new WMR-QSL for 2021 will be printed late April 2021.
