Just somewhat more info around the broadcasts of Radio Emmeloord on 747 Khz, from Pietersbierum. According to info on the website of Radio Emmloord the relay on 747 is a temporary one. In about a month a new location will be in use, the earlier announced 1224 Khz from out of Arum. About 20 km’s away from Pietersbierum.
Both locations are situated near the west coast of de Provence of Friesland, so a propagation pathern over the North Sea will be quit good, unless the LPAM 100 Watt licence. Here at my QTH, south of the city of Groningen, the signal is not so good ( I’m listening via my WiFi radio). On the different KiwiSDR’s in the north-west of the Netherlands the signal is good. Into the direction of Amsterdam co-channel interference is coming up from MCB Radio out of Alphen aan den Rijn, near the city of Leiden.
Today Radio Emmeloord gave in a live show, between 12 and 2, reactions on reception-reports. Listeners in cars etc. came with good receptionreports. I ‘m wondering if the new location in Arum will give the same results as those from Pietersbierum. The former Radio Waddenzee/ KBC Radio location with two broadcasting towers and the top-loaded T construction aerial.
By the way: Radio 0511 is still available on 1287 Khz, from Ternaard. Unclear is ore the will return on the 747 after Radio Emmeloord goes to 1224.
