Radio Delta International is a free radio station founded in 1971. Nowadays we are broadcasting with a license mostly on 6020kHz 49 meters shortwave. We are using transmitter(s) with 1000 Watts ERP and AM modulation.
Radio Delta International was unlicensed by any government for most of its early life, it was a pirate radio station with a great history that never became legal. Ever since more than 49 years have passed with ups and downs. No doubt more ups than downs. What kept and keeps us going can be best described as “The love for Free Radio”.
We still bring you great ‘live’ shows on the shortwave band right across Europe and around the world. No tight formats, recorded programs or playlists! Just different music styles with requests and greetings from our listeners and DX’ers.
Put that amazing Free Radio AM sound back into your life with fabulous ‘live’ programs. The 6020kHz signal serve West- and Central Europe.
Transmitter Site Elburg
Rohde & Schwarz SK080
We are using often the R&S SK080 transmitter with classic anode/screen modulation. The SK080 is built in 1959 and is 100% tube-based, gives us 800 Watts RF power and sucks 3.4 kVA (one phase!).
Radio Delta engineers refurbished this beautiful vintage AM broadcast transmitter.
Rohde & Schwarz SK080 Modulator
The R&S SK080 has a nice internal modulator with 2 x EL 34 and 2 x QB3/300 tubes with a brilliant AM modulation. This R&S SK080 transmitter could modulate around 800 Watt nom.
Many dutch pirates use the smaller R&S SK010 with external modulator, this transmitter can modulate around 130 Watt nom.
