Radio Nord Revival testing from s/s S:t Erik May 28-30

We have now finally received the license for 1584 kHz from the Telecommunications Authorities, PTS. One thing, though: we do not yet know if we will be able to broadcast on medium wave during these days. This depends on if we can get the technical assistance needed to put out an AM signal on 1584. A transmitter has been promised but sofar we do not know if the necessary assistance will be available. We will let you know as soon as we do ourselves. Broadcasts will be made from the museum ship, the former icebreaker S:t Erik.

You will, however, be able to hear us on the web like our latest test transmissions and this time our programmes will also be relayed by Skärgårdsradion on FM 90.2 MHz covering the greater Stockholm area. We are awaiting decisions about relays from other stations who have shown interest in this project.

If you are in the Stockholm area this particular weekend and can come down to the ship which is moored near the Vasa Museum you can also meet a number of Radio Nord veterans who actually broadcast from the original ship, the m/v Bon Jour, in 1961-62. Sofar the following former members of the Radio Nord staff have confirmed they will be attending at various times during these days:

Lars Branje (newsman and DJ)
Solveig Allerstig (receptionist at the Radio Nord office)
Ove Sjöström (chief technician on board the Bon Jour) may be attending
Seve Ungermark (newsman)
Kenneth Agehed (radio technician on board the Bon Jour)
Kjell Bergström (newsman)
Björn-Fredrik Höijer (newsman)
Lars Nestius (newsman and DJ)
Sten Hedman (DJ)

Also, author Jan Kotschack, son of the legendary Radio Nord manager Jack S. Kotschack, will be attending to present his book about Radio Nord, Stick iväg, Jack. You can buy your own signed copy on board.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on May 28-30 at the museum ship S:t Erik for a weekend of pure radio nostalgia.
