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.

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.
