"We were aware of the maintenance work at Channel 292 and we have therefore rented for the first broadcast on 22nd March 1000 UTC locally a transmitter in the ORS in Vienna (100 kW). The repeat broadcast on 23rd March will be back in production for Channel 292 can be radiated with the newly installed 10 kW transmitter (20 kW PEP) as the first show with new hardware "says Rainer, DF2NU.
RADIO DARC, a new, made by radio amateurs Amateur Radio DX weekly magazine, based on the legendary former stations like Radio Noordzee International, Radio Veronica and Radio Caroline. The contents revolve around current reports from the scene, market reports, technical tips, DX news, interviews and the like, accompanied by great music from the 70s and 80s.
The contracts for the delivery of programming content with the Intermedicom GmbH are signed and sealed. The complete donor-supported broadcasting, initially in two broadcast partners, once on the Austrian ORS GmbH Co KG and secondly on the above-mentioned Intermedicom GmbH, which operates a self-built 10 kW shortwave transmitter near Ingolstadt. The owner of this company is itself radio amateur (DB8QC), more info, see www.channel292.de
The widespread retreat of commercial and government broadcaster has this project possible, since the now orphaned KW frequencies are scarcely of interest - except for radio amateurs. Some now use the new possibilities to establish broadcast service providers.
We keep our fingers crossed and hope gl for the first transmission.
