Thanks for the information. I am receiving continous 60s sounding music at the moment on 1476 so it must be them, other times it would be Egypt or Iran on this frequency.

Sweden is testing with rock / hard rock and also swedish productions.

be careful, if you hear sea pirate / offshore music and beat / evergreens, it is CWR Radio (also new !!)

the antennae direction should be 90 degrees different

Yes you are right, it was not Sweden that I was receiving.

Just heard CWR ID & a message saying that it was carrying out a test transmission. Signal has gone weaker for me as the evening has progressed but I am hoping to make a recording within the next few days.

Hello! The Asfalttelegrafen crew from Sweden here!
I have a 2 week long Licence from 26th of December 2018-8th of January 2019
to broadcast with 200 W ERP on 1476 kHz here from Borås och Boras in English, 60 km east of Gothenburg.
Try to be on the air between 15,00-03,00 UTC, with a 30 minutets break for dinner and transmitter check around 20,00 UTC.
My transmitter give now 350 watt carrier, and with 80-85 % modulation it go out around 1-1,2 KW PEP to the antenna.
Rock Musik, most from the 70´and some nordic rock as well.

My transmitter is an Bulgarian manufactured 300 Watt, transistorized, for the whole AM-band.
The antenna is an "L-antenna" 48,5 meter long, with 7 ground plane cables of 50 meter per piece.

Confirm listening y'day with rock music :) but Carillon makes this a tough one.

1593 was so crowded, now using 1476 seemed to be a much better choise. Sadly, other stations are now beginning to occupy this channel too, like the "beeping " Erlangen tx as well as CWR

CWR from UK has 60s music / oldies (different programmation) and also some news. but very loud modulation

73+55 to all of you
