WRMI RELAYS DUTCH PIRATE COOLAM RADIO, FRIDAY AT 10 P.M. ET
Texas Radio Shortwave is teaming with WRMI to present an hour of music from CoolAM Radio.
The program will be broadcast on 5800 kHz, Friday night, July 30, at 10 p.m. ET (0200 GMT on July 31).
CoolAM Radio is a European free radio station that’s one of the few Dutch pirate stations using a low-powered transmitter instead of the huge military surplus transmitters or powerful homemade equipment of other Dutch stations. CoolAM Radio is seldom on-the-air but is relayed by North American free radio stations regularly. Its Offshore History Radio series is relayed via Germany commercial shortwave station Channel 292. In Europe, CoolAM was most often heard on 6735 kHz.
Reception reports must be sent directly to the station because Texas radio shortwave won’t issue an eQSL for the broadcast. The station’s address is email@example.com.
This is the fifth in a series of weekly WRMI relays of European pirates and low-power licensed broadcasters, many of which haven’t been heard in North America for many years — if ever. The rest of the series looks like this:
August 7 – Cupid Radio, The Netherlands
August 14 – Free Radio Service-Holland, The Netherlands
August 21 – Atlantic 2000 International, France
August 28 – Radio Delta International, The Netherlands.
Beginning in September, Texas Radio Shortwave, Limpia Mountains Radio, and WRMI will begin a new series of Europirate relays on a different day of the week and on a different frequency. An announcement will be posted on TRSW’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/texasradiosw).
Texas Radio Shortwave sails in international waters off the South Texas coast. Its programs are regularly broadcast in North America and Europe.
Limpia Mountains Radio operates from a cave on Brooks Mountain in Jeff Davis County in far West Texas. It coproduces radio programs with Texas Radio Shortwave.
