Hi all,

I saw, to check some links, and one of the links leads to this forum. So, here I am, a dutch radio station, broadcast in the 35cm.
So as you already noticed, on my (dutch) website ( www.radio-romeo-hotel.nl ) i keep everything up2date, from the start in 2013.
The plan is also to start next year with 1302 Mhz, and 4.5 meter, between 60 and 80 Mhz

I never heard of this forum,so I will check now what this forum has to offer.

If you have any questions about 35cm broadcasting or other questions please ask, I looking forward to it.

With kind regards from the netherlands,

Mario

welcome! its my dream to dx an 860mhz station like yours from the UK!

rx here is Icom R9500 with the IF out feeding an SDR

Holland is difficult from home, but I have a local hilltop where I heard a Dutch Pirate on 108mhz https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axe_Edge_Moor

Tim,
Should be nice if you start with also a 35cm station. I receive with a Icom R7100, modified to receive in Stereo! On the backside I have 2 RCA output, leading to the audio amplifier. The plan is, I bought a Sony SB920, and I want to have a converter, that put the signal on 100 Mhz tot receive.

It is not difficult to start, a lot is standard for sale. There some stations, the make transmitters for sale.
Amplifiers are standard GSM, or with a little modify, to use.
We have a Dutch forum, ok, of course in Dutch, but as you register, and you ask in English, we "speak" English.
DXrapporten.nl
We have now at this moment about 70 active ON AIR users, and some are sleeping.....
Dutch Pirates on 108, is very dangerous...
