QSL FROM RADIO NORTHERN IRELAND

Radio Northern Ireland was established in July 2015 and started there broadcast from Channel 292 via Germany on 6070 kHz. But as she wanted to expand their audience she moved to WRMI in the USA to use a more powerful transmitter with two beams on 15770 kHz for North America and Europe and 9955 kHz for Southern half of America giving coverage to Latin America. The aim of the station is to spread the world of Northern Ireland across a large proportion of the world. The usual broadcasting style is with music and SSTV images:

QSL FROM TRANS WORLD RADIO-BONAIRE, NETHERLANDS ANTILLES

I received TWR Bonaire in the night of February 3, 2016 at 02.00 UTC on 800 kHz. The reception here in Belgium was difficult because of the interference of European stations on 801 kHz: TWR, Bonaire 800 kHz..mp3. I sent my detailed reception report to 800am(at)twr.org. In response, I got a detailed QSL-card, a few beautiful post cards of Bonaire and a calendar. Really an example for other radio stations!!
