Radio Nord revival soon on medium wave

The Radio Nord revival weblog says: We have now received permission for 2.5 kW on MW 1512 kHz from Kvarnberget (Stockholm) and also on the original Radio Nord channel, 603 kHz, from Sala (the same location as the shortwave transmitter). As for short wave the frequencies have not yet been determined but we will most likely be in the 41 and 31 metre band.

SW frequencies will be announced as soon as they are cleared and power will be 10 kW. We will also be running a test towards North America in night time and hope you will be able to hear us over there. As usual you can also hear us on web radio, now with improved webstreams.

On May 27 official transmissions will start from the former ice-breaker and museum ship s/s S:t Erik and there will be a lot of live transmissions from the ship. We are also planning a small Radio Nord exhibition on board and the plan is to build a studio with vintage equipment of the same type that was used by Radio Nord. Everybody is welcome to join us the weekend of May 27-29 on board the S.t Erik!
