Grimeton Radio/SAQ extra transmission

There will hopefully be a transmission with the Alexanderson alternator on 17,2 kHz on ‘United Nations Day’ October 24, 2014 at 10:00 UTC. Start up and tuning from about 11:30 UTC.

There will be a message written by students in Denmark.

We are not hundred percent sure we have access to the antenna this day because of other organization using it.

This time we do not require any QSL-reports and will not verify.

P.S. We intend to continue with our annual transmission on Christmas Eve (morning), Dec 24, at 08:00 UTC with tuning up from 07:30 UTC. D.S.

Thanks to Mike Terry for the above information

Let’s hope this plan works out.  The Grimeton Radio Station powered by an Alexanderson alternator on 17.2 kHz is the last of its breed.  You don’t get to hear this classic museum piece very often, so do your best to receive the transmission on United Nations Day, 24 October 2014, with start up and tuning beginning around 1130 UTC.  The broadcast date is not 100 percent certain, because another group will be using the antenna.  But, try to receive it anyway.  The regular annual transmission from SAQ Grimeton Radio will occur on Christmas morning, 24 December 2014 at 0800 UTC wit tune up from 0730 UTC.
