SAD NEWS FOR SHORTWAVE FREE RADIO

SAD NEWS FOR SHORTWAVE FREE RADIO
I have just heard from Peter Verbruggen of FRS Holland that my long time friend and colleague at Geronimo Shortwave, Chris Watson, (real surname Regan) has passed away at home in France last Wednesday 28th December.
Chris was involved in shortwave free radio for over 30 years, operating Radio 48 in the 80's, and then Geronimo Shortwave from the 90's through to last year. He had a passion for shortwave and even though it became more difficult for him to broadcast via his own transmitter in more recent times due to his domestic circumstances, he kept Geronimo Shortwave going through various relay stations.
I worked alongside Chris since the 80's when I was operating Radio Apollo International on shortwave, often running both stations from the same woodland either in Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire or Wales. He and his wife Pat became firm friends. The last time I met him was about 4 years ago on one of his occasional visits back to the UK when he helped me out with some shortwave aerial problems. I still continued recording shows for Geronimo until a couple of years ago when my work on the Prog Mill took over more of my radio time, but he was always supportive of that and my continued shortwave work with FRS Holland and was in touch as recently as October.
Chris was a true stalwart of shortwave free radio, with a genuine passion and enthusiasm which never dimmed. Shortwave will certainly be worse off for his absence.
Rest in Peace Chris. And may that big transmitter in the sky get a SINPO of all the 5's!

Channel 292 News

Liebe Freunde,

Weihnachten steht (fast) vor der Tür, und wie ihr dem Sendeplan
entnehmen könnt, sind die Weihnachtsfeiertage ziemlich ausgebucht.
Durch die geänderten Bedingungen im Winter bedingt, haben sich
einige Sendezeiten von abends in die Tagesstunden verschoben:
http://www.channel292.de/schedule-for-bookings/
und auch einige neue oder bekannte Programme sind (wieder) mit dabei:
Hobart Radio aus Australien, aus Schweden SDXF, und aus Deutschland
SM Radio Dessau, sowie Blueman Radio.
Diese Stationen würden sich sicher über Empfangsberichte freuen!

An dieser Stelle möchten wir noch allen Freunden danken, die den
WiMo Web SDR aus unserer Werbung bestellt haben; wir hoffen,
dass ihr viel Freude damit habt.

Dann hätten wir noch eine Bitte speziell an unsere Hörer im deutsch-
sprachigen Raum, aber nicht nur:
Anfang 2017 möchte eine neue Station aus Norddeutschland mit
mehreren Stunden pro Tag die Kurzwelle beleben. Hierfür ist man noch
auf der Suche nach einem geeigneten Sendepartner, der ein gutes
Signal in Europa erzeugt. Um das herauszufinden, läuft am Mittwoch,
dem 23. November, also in der kommenden Woche, um 14.00 Uhr MEZ
ein Testprogramm über unseren Sender.
Natürlich wird diese Zeit für viele Hörer ungünstig sein, aber alle anderen,
die um diese Zeit zuhören können: Bitte schickt Empfangsberichte an die
in der Sendung genannte Adresse, und lasst die Station wissen, wie
(hoffentlich) gut ihr das Programm auf 6070 kHz empfangen könnt!
Wenn die Testsendung ein positives Resultat erbringt, wäre das ein
wichtiger Schritt für unseren Sender, möglicherweise könnten wir dann
sogar eine zweite Frequenz im 49 Meter Band freischalten lassen.
Wir zählen auf euch!!

Dear friends,

Christmas is near, and our schedule shows, that the holidays are
really crowded. Due to the conditions during the winter, some stations
moved to daylight hours:
http://www.channel292.de/schedule-for-bookings/
and some new or well known programs can be heard (again), too:
Hobart Radio from Australia, from Sweden the Swedish DX Federation,
from Germany SM Radio Dessau, and Blueman Radio is one more.
Surely these stations would be happy to get your reports!

And we have a request, not only for the listeners in German speaking areas:
Starting in 2017, a new station from the northern part of Germany wants
to fill shortwave with life for some hours per day. They are still looking
for a good partner to bring their program on air with a good and strong
signal. To check this, they run a test program the coming week on Wednesday,
the 23rd, at 1400 CET = 1300 UTC on 6070 kHz.
We know that for a lot of listeners this will not be a good time to tune in,
but all the others, who are able to listen, should send reception reports
to the address mentioned in the program. Please let them know how good and
strong (as we hope) you receive our signal!
If this test for them shows a positive result, it would be a big step forward
for our station; maybe we even could run a second frequency in the 49 meter
band.
We count on you!!
