Marconia Radio International slated for September 8 broadcast

Waiting on my QSL for this station - maybe in a few days it will come in, as promised :)

Here is the schedule for the next Thursday transmissions of MRI on  8 September 2016:  1700-2000 UTC  on 7700 kHz (USB mode) and 2015-2130 UTC on 9300 kHz (USB Mode).

As you may be already aware we recently moved our weekly broadcasts from Wednesday to Thursday. Our broadcasts include some kind of programmes now sadly missing from most shortwave radio stations:  an old style DX show in English “Italian Short Wave Panorama” (there is also the Italian version called “Panorama Onde Corte”) with lot of recent logs  as well as  a mailbag show (“La Posta degli ascoltatori”) in Italian. As from 8 September a music show in Italian will also be aired. Our  station identification  announcements are not only in English and Italian but also in French, German, Romanian, Spanish and Catalan.

For the first time in our history a Facebook page about our station has been introduced. It is called "MRI World" and can be found at this web address: - Although it is still  far from being completed  you can leave your comments and suggestions as well as like it!

MRI encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts are welcome! We QSL 100%. Our electronic mail address is: - Please don’t forget to include your postal address as some lucky listeners will also receive a printed QSL card.

Last but not least,  we need your help! If you use social networks, please post an announcement on Facebook  or send out a tweet the day  before the broadcast. You can also forward this message to a friend. This should help increase our  potential audience.

We hope to hear from a lot of shortwave listeners about our transmissions.
