Northern Star 1611 kHz.
As you already have noticed, our station The Sea is not on the air.
It closed just after midnight on December 15th, 2021.
The Sea is a Classic Country station.
But, as new licenses has been given for 630, 1314, 1611 and 5895 kHz we anticipate to be back on the air soon.
As to 1611 kHz it is an ITU internationally cleared frequency for only the Vatican and Norway.
All other use is illegal.
We plan digital transmissions on that frequency as we are licensed for by NKOM and MT.
It may be ignorance that leads people to think that they can broadcast on any frequency they may choose.
At any rate the pirates harm the enormous effort we have put in to secure this clear frequency for Norway.
The 1.6 MHz band is also a band for licensed broadcasters in ITU Regions 2&# ie the Americas and Asia/Pacific, and pirates in action there also harm dx listening of many Europeans.
I might add that there are still utility transmissions in the band that also may be harmed.
Please spread my note on 1611.
