Marconi Radio International to celebrate World Radio Day

On February 13, let's celebrate free radio together on the occasion of World Radio Day! Tune in to MRI as well as Italian Broadcasting Corporation and Radio Europe! Thank you for your participation!

Greetings from Italy!

On February 13, Marconi Radio International celebrates the  role of free shortwave radio on the occasion of World Radio Day. That's why we have produced, in cooperation with other two free radios of Italy, Radio Europe  and IBC – Italian Broadcasting Corporation, a special 1 hour show in Italian.

This day of celebration is also an opportunity to remember why we love free  radio, to highlight the power of this medium to bring people together and to share this with shortwave enthusiasts.

With this in mind, we invite SWLs  to listen  not only to Marconi Radio International on 11390 kHz but also Italian Broadcasting Corporation on 6970 kHz and Radio Europe on 6875 kHz. These shortwave stations  will in fact carry over the air, next Saturday at different times, that special programme which includes interviews with people behind the operation of the three free radios.

As usual MRI, which this Saturday, 13 February 2016,  will be on the air from 09.00 to 14.00 UTC on 11390 kHz with 30 watts, encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts  are welcome! We QSL 100%.

Our E-mail address is: [] but 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 transmission on the occasion of World Radio Day.
