We are thrilled to share the exciting news of our recent test transmission on the shortwave frequencies. On August 13th and 14th, 2023, Radio Delta conducted a 24-hour test on the 12.075 kHz frequency in the 25-meter band. The response we received from listeners around the world was overwhelming, with reports coming in from Ukraine, USA, Finland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Brazil, Australia, and Austria.
Our aim during the test transmission was to assess the signal strength and reception quality of our shortwave broadcast. We were astonished to receive beautiful feedback from listeners as far as Ukraine, the USA, and Australia. These reports not only reaffirmed the global reach of our broadcast but also highlighted the impact of shortwave radio in connecting people across vast distances.
To provide you with a glimpse of the test transmission, we have compiled a series of videos showcasing the reception experience of some of our esteemed listeners. One of the standout reports came from John in Springfield, USA, who was able to follow our signal for an impressive 15 hours. His video captures the captivating quality of the reception during his extended listening session. Another avid listener, Manuel Mendez from NW Spain, also closely monitored our broadcast and was impressed by the signal quality, rating it 45444. He graciously shared a recording of his reception, which further validated the success of our test transmission. Furthermore, Alessandro from the vicinity of Florence, Italy, tuned in towards the end of our broadcast and commended the high-quality transmission with minimal fading or interference.
One of our most dedicated listeners during the test on 12.075 kHz was Kari from Lahti, Finland. Kari spent countless hours tuning in to the test transmission and meticulously monitoring the reception on various KIWI SDRs (Software-Defined Radios). It was fascinating to hear about his experiences and observations as he shifted his listening from Australia to Europe, where the transmission occurred in the morning. Kari’s passion for shortwave radio listening is truly admirable, and we’ve had many enjoyable conversations with him on platforms like WhatsApp. At Radio Delta, establishing a strong connection with our listeners is of utmost importance to us. We greatly value the feedback and engagement we receive from our audience, and Kari’s dedication is just one example of the vibrant community we are privileged to have. We believe that the power of radio lies not only in the transmission itself, but in the bonds it forges between people across borders and time zones.
We are delighted to announce that based on the positive response we received, Radio Delta will incorporate this new frequency into our regular broadcast schedule. To cater to our valued listeners’ preferences, we will be making some adjustments to our programming, and we will be sharing these exciting updates in our next news item.
