Reception Report:

Dear Sirs of KR1
It is with great pleasure that reception of your broadcasting station as follows,
Radio: KR1 Frequency: 6285 kHz Date: April 24th 2017 Time: 14:27 to 15:00 UTC
Language: Dutch, English Reception location: Sayama-city, Saitama, JAPAN via England Web SDR
Condition: SINPO 45444 – 35333 – 25232 (via Barney’s Web SDR in Bedford) SINPO 45332 – 35332 (via Kiwi Web SDR in Southwest England)
Interferences noted:
Receiver: via Barney’s Web SDR in Bedford England & Kiwi Web SDR in SW England
Antenna: via dipole & TC2M antenna
Comment: Hello! This is my first reception report to your broadcasting station.
I came back to SW & MW listening in the summer of 2012 after being absent since 1979.
End of November 2015, I started to listen European Pirate Radio station via Web SDR
(like University of Twente) or remote reception by Perseus. Because, it is difficult
to receive these broadcast directly in my place & by my receiver, except relayed
another broadcast (like IRRS or KBC etc.). Moreover, I like to listen to many good
music all over the world! This day, I could receive & hear your broadcast for the
first time! I am very pleased! (I had no chance to receive till this day….) At first,
I checked Twente Web SDR, but there was no signal…. So I checked Barney’s Web SDR,
just a little bit distortion but very strong signal! However, unfortunately, around
14:51UTC, Web SDR did not work well suddenly…. So I changed to Kiwi Web SDR (G8JNJ)
in Southwest England. Your signal was very strong, S9! But, this Web SDR did not work
well too, very small volume…. So I stopped to listen your broadcast at 15:00UTC….
(Almost sleeping time will come, it was 01:00JST!) But I could listen many good music!

imagesTK36QLRPHey hallo KR1,

Volgens mij ben ik een homepage lang geleden van jullie tegengekomen waarin jullie reclame maakte voor onze server Golden Radio. Ik kan me herinneren dat ik het zeer leuk vond. Ja Monique .. ik heb het gezien aan boord, ben er een paar keer geweest. Ook een enkel leuk contact met een van de dj’s overgehouden en bekenden/vrienden van hen: zeer leuk. Wij hadden die plannen ook om terug te gaan naar de Ross Revenge wat jaren geleden, maar voor ons wat het niet handig. Je komt er niet zomaar op en er zijn rondleidingen en daar hadden wij helaas door omstandigheden het geduld niet voor. We zijn niet gegaan. Het is wel heel uniek dat je het wel hebt gedaan, want het geeft herinneringen aan toen en de veranderingen die er daarna allemaal zijn gekomen. Ik heb ooit lang geleden een heel verhaal van een Engelse dj gelezen. Het was bijzonder aan boord en zo’n schip voor de Engelse kust. Toen een paar keer aan boord geweest, ook toen Monique er nog niet was en dat ben ik nooit meer vergeten, ook diverse foto’s toen kunnen maken en er zijn zelfs Belgen geweest die er gefilmd hebben. Ik heb het kunnen terugzien via de internet tv YT. Ook tijdens een reünie ergens van wel es een Caroline dj tegen gekomen en meerdere, eentje ging later naar Veronica. Met een collega en vriend van hem ook vaak gesproken en Erik heb ik ook wel es vaker gezien en af en toe gesproken. Niets zo mooi als een zendschip in open water ligt, want daar hoorde het toen thuis.

Ik ga jullie bericht over de Ross Revenge op de groep plaatsen en ook doorsturen naar iedereen. Kei leuk KR1 – zeer bijzonder en geniet er ook van. Dat doe ik ook. Ik zal ‘m ook op mijn facebook zetten, want daar zit ook wat van Monique 🙂

Groet en succes met jullie KR1 station.

imagesJ2NWL17H (2)Leuk om dit te ontdekken…. ik ben een oud medewerker van Radio Remy uit de begin en bijna eind jaren 80 grappig om je oud stationnaam Remy terug te vinden in een oud verhaal. M.v.g. iedereen uit de oude tijd. Ronald Burema was mijn naam uit Assendelft. echt leuk mannen en een mega goede site en leuke verhalen. Ik krijg uit diverse verhalen weer een herkenning…..

There was no interference.   Overall reception quality was fair.   SINPO: 35333

The signal strenght was good to fair without interferences (SINPO 33533). I used a receiver model PL-660 Tecsun and an external windom antenna of 21 metres long.If the recording attached corresponds with the programmes of that day, I hope that you will be able to write me a verification of reception (QSL) encouraging me that I really tuned in to your station. Hoping for your positive reaction, thanking you in advance, I send you my best regards. Luca

imagesTK36QLRPHello KR1,
I guess I was able to listening your station last night. Not sure about the exact ID, because I don’t understood the ID. Propagation was very poor all day, and in the dark hours was a little better, but not too much.
I like to listening free radios, and I use to collect e-qsl confirmations, a hobby, really
Take a look to my report please
date 11-5-2014  frequency 6260 khz UTC 2215-2230 sinpo 24322 no interferences from other station, some local noises from tv sets and storms around my town. Little fading too. Receiver was Kenwood R 2000  antenna 10 m line at the terrace, listening at home in downtown,
details: this was some pop ballad. Then your ID and some talks. Later Reggae with Bob Marley. more reggae at 2219  also funky gilr. Then a ballad by man., 2224 more pops, a cover of the song Agapimú.  Later at 2228 pop dance electronic music. Don’t noted more details, It was time to sleep here, sorry.
If the report is correct, I will be happy with your e-qsl  confirming.

imagesJ2NWL17H (2)Dear radio friend,

My name is Per Eriksson and I have, according to many of my friends, a strange hobby. I enjoy listening to short- and mediumwave radio stations from all over the world. All they hear from the loudspeakers is the noise, but to me radio over the borders open new horizons. I know that a lot of other stations stream their programs on the Internet, but that is certainly not the same as catching the signal on air. That said, I am very pleased to inform you that I have been able to catch your signal on shortwave 6240 kHz on Saturday, May 10th, 2014. Got the tip that you were on the air from Ianns chatroom. Your signal was on the poor side with the normal shortwave noise. The SIO (Signal strength, Interference and Overall rating) was 2, 3, 2 (on the 1-5 scale, where 5 is best). Enjoyed these songs: 09:16 hrs UTC: “When I need you” by leo Sayer 09:21 hrs UTC: “La difference” by BZN 09:28 hrs UTC: “Papi” by Jennifer Lopez To prove reception and give you a better understanding of the reception quality over here I have recorded a short mp3-clip. It was made at 09:27 hrs UTC (Universal Coordinated Time). You will hear mail address. Save the clip or listen to it by navigating to this link: Part of my radio hobby is to collect “confirmation on reception” from the stations that I hear. If you find that the station I have heard to be Kennemer Radio I would appreciate an verification in return as a verification on listening in. An e-mail saying “it’s us” will do fine! On the personal side I live my my family, wife and two teenagers, in Malmö. I was an avid shortwave listener and DX-er back in the 1970’s. My interest in radio has never faded completely and I have tried to listen every now and then during the years. Back in 2010 I got myself the Microtelecom Perseus software defined receiver and are now more active listening than ever before. Must say that I am proud of catching your signal with an outside large aperture loop antenna. Thanks a lot for your attention, I do look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours, Per Eriksson Erikslustvägen 42D S-217 73 Malmö Sweden Mail:
