New low-power-record to Finland on Medium Wave is 10 Watts

My new low-power-record of a Medium Wave pirate is now 10 Watts!
The previous record was Radio Tubantia, Hoogeveen, Holland reaching
Finland with 15 W.

Radio Primadonna 1645 kHz from Germany confirmed my reception with
e-mail. Station uses transmitter made by schema of old radioamateur-transmitter
from 1930's! It gives about 10 W power (with 24m antenna about 7m high).
The exact location of the station in Germany is not known by me.

You can find mp3-clip and photo of the transmitter from

Also Radio Philadelphia from Drenthe province, Holland, replied and told he has
35 Watts transmitter. He uses mostly 1664 kHz. Mp3 is also audible.

Naturally MW-signal to Finland with only 1-5 Watts is possible but nobody
uses so low powers.

Harri thanks and i hope it wil work again one of these days with low power.
I am working with a vertical antenna and my plan is to build a horizontal open dipole antenne.
I think that wil work much better then a vertical one.
So i hope you wil receive me again in the future...
Nice christmas and a happy new year.
