Shortwave Transmissions in the 49, 41, 31 and 25 metre bands

During the latter part of the 2000s, we broadcast regularly on shortwave via transmitters around the globe. Since then, many international broadcasters have discontinued broadcasting on the HF bands, as we did in 2007. Is there a future for shortwave radio? We carried out a one-off two-hour shortwave broadcast on Saturday 25th April 2015 and Saturday March 19th, 2016 from Roerbach in Germany. We'd be grateful for your reception reports and will verify by e-QSL card or, if you mail us one Euro or two US Dollars, we'll mail you a proper QSL card! All reports received electronically to date have been verified with eQSLs and copies of Radio News.

Radio Six International now also produces regular programming for European Music Radio which is broadcast regularly on shortwave. Our programnme will resume in June. The next EMR transmissions, however, will feature repeats of EMR programmes from 1979 and are as follows:
