Radio Öömrang revives for a day

If it's February 21, time for the annual broadcast from Radio Öömrang, and if you missed last year, here’s a new opportunity. Once a year on February 21, citizens from one of Germany’s North Frisian Islands, celebrate Bikebrånen, a major North Frisian holiday. 

The first broadcast was founded by amateur radio operator Ajan Kölzow on the island of Amrum in 2006. Annual programs are aimed at the descendants of North Frisian immigrants to North America. 

Programs are presented in English and Standard German with talk and interviews in the North Frisian language of the Öömrang dialect. Programming may be live, or a recording from past editions to celebrate their special day.

The winter 2019 broadcast for Radio Öömrang, is schedule for February 21, 2019,  1600-1700 UTC on 15215 kHz, relayed from the Issoudun, France transmitter.  

The scheduled 2019 broadcast has been confirmed by Michael Puetz, of Media Broadcast. To request an e-QSL, send your program details to:
