The show is finished, transmitter time booked and pre-processing done so it’s time to announce RNEI #3 & TIAEMS April 2020 to all of you!
Before we continue, we need to announce something pretty special and unique about this and future RNEI broadcasts:
RNEI is now broadcasting in Comb Stereo. It’s a standard we made and it’s a really nice addition to having a mono only broadcast. It’s easy to decode and it doesn’t degrade the mono signal!
For more information about the system and how it is decoded please see https://rnei.org/stereo/
RNEI #3 features 30 minutes of our favourite music from all over Northern Europe; Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland this show. I’ve really enjoyed choosing the music and putting it all together, I really hope you enjoy listening to it 😄
We will also have the playlist sent in MFSK32 embedded into the final song, very similar to show #1 (we’ve worked extra hard to make it as hidden as possible which was a massive challenge this time, it’s in 2 parts during the final song with an RxID at the start of the final song).
Just like last month, TIAMS has been kind enough to join forces and make us a 30 minute express version of his show which I have loved listening to and I’m sure you will love it too!
Here is our schedule for April: (We have made a rough guide on where we are targeting with our times, if you aren’t covered but are still in Europe it’s always worth a try!)
|Sunday the 5th of April 2020||18:00 UTC||6070KHz||Zone 1+2|
|Saturday the 11th of April 2020||18:00 UTC||6070KHz||Zone 1+2|
|Friday the 17th of April 2020||10:00 UTC||6070KHz||Zone 1|

We have had some questions on how to decode the text so we have written a guide for anyone who owns an Android device! You can read it here: https://rnei.org/rnei-digital-guide/
We have also made our processor much brighter so you might want to read our recommendations about listening without it being too harsh on your ears here: https://rnei.org/how-to-best-receive-rnei/
And, lastly, we have written a short guide for SDR users with some tips for those new to shortwave on optimising the sound quality of RNEI here: https://rnei.org/sdr-guide/
Hopefully you manage to hear our show for April!
Wishing you all the best health during this pandemic and hoping you all stay happy,
