Another view from the tower. You can actually see the city of Stockholm from the tower although it is several miles away so we hope to be able to reach our capital on FM 91,8 MHz. Photos by Tore Andersson, Radio Nord Revival's chief engineer on the Fortress.

We will be broadcasting on SW, alternating between 5995 or 6035 kHz, using a power of maximum 500 W. In addition we will have a FM transmitter on 91,8 MHz using a maximum of 60 W. Both transmitters will be located on the fortress.

On Saturday, October 27, a number of Radio Nord veterans will be joining us at the fortress. The museum will be closed during the day but if you happen to be in the neighbourhood you are welcome to join us, too. Boat transportation is available from Waxholm by Waxhomsbolaget. We expect to have a small exhibition of vintage studio equipment like that which was used by Radio Nord.

You may expect test transmissions earlier during the week.

Radio Nord Revival återuppstår.
Kommande helg är det dags för det Svenska DX-förbundets årliga parlament. Förra året höll man till på Södermalm i Stockholm. Den här gången är man i Jönköping. Liksom den gången återupplivar vi samtidigt Radio Nord Revival. Då man den här gången kommer att sända från parlamentet på mellanvåg 1593 kHz med omkring 250 watt. När man inte sänder direkt från parlamentet blir det Radio Nord Revival som kommer att höras emellanåt.

Radio Nord Revival on 9295 kHz from 1900 UTC on August 23

After a long and great day of broadcasting from The Castle in Vaxholm, we have now returned home. But do try 9295 kHz which has just replaced 6065 kHz. Seems to be doing fine in England - anybody hearing us on the other side of the pond?
