Best of luck

Best of luck with AER. Is the station based here in Ireland?

By the look of the picture of the TX on your website I'd say approx 15 watts from the single 807? :wink:

Look forward to hearing you!

We can't confirm or deny exactly where our transmission site is, but can confirm that our valve transmitter has an output power measured at around 18watts.

Watch out in the 43m band (around 6910 kHz) for the occasional un-announced transmission from All Europe Radio during the Summer months.

We carried out a 3 hour test on Sunday 18th June, although no one seems to have heard this transmission.

Out of curiousity, isn't the 43m listened to/used in Europe these days? We vaguely remember an Irish station using this band in the 1990's, but we seem to be the only broadcasters in this band now (we felt the 48m was too overcrowded which is why we opted for 43m).

Your right, it was radio Dublin who used 6910 for a while.
It's mostly the Yanks who use 43m as it was deemed to be dodgy due to, at onetime, high military activity.
