German Radio back on Shortwave (for one night)

Update there »

A radio tradition in Germany that stays alive: relatives of sea-faring people get an opportunity to send their loved ones in the seven seas – minus the Pacific, it seems – Christmas greetings on shortwave. Obviously, the broadcaster, Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) in Hamburg, is going to broadcast the traditional Christmas program, “Gruß an Bord”, on the internet and FM, but they also hired airtime on shortwave for Christmas Eve.

Times, target areas, and frequencies:

6125 kHz (Northern Atlantic), 11955 kHz (Southern Atlantic); 9925 kHz (Atlantic/Indian Ocean, South Africa); 9460 kHz (Western Indian Ocean) and 9885 kHz (Eastern Indian Ocean) from 19:00 UTC to 21:00 UTC and

6040 kHz (Northern Atlantic), 9435 kHz (Southern Atlantic); 9925 kHz (Atlantic/Indian Ocean, South Africa); 9880 kHz (Western Indian Ocean) and 9625 kHz (Eastern Indian Ocean) from 21:00 UTC to 23:00 UTC.

The broadcaster, NDR, doesn’t seem to provide information about the shortwave transmitters, but Nauen and Wertachtal would appear likely, as airtime was rented from these two stations on Christmas 2012, too.

Some more information about “Gruß an Bord” in this previous post.
