Radio Northern Europe International Show 7 & TIAEMS August 2020 announcement

Hello all,

Just writing to announce RNEI #7 & TIAEMS August 2020 starts on Sunday the second of August 2020!

Our show is packed with some great pop and dance music from Northern Europe including quite a few Icelandic and Norwegian songs this month and a very interesting song from the UK too!
There is a little less traditional music than is average this show which I’ll make up for next month, but hopefully you’ll enjoy what is in this month’s show!

Our digital this time is PSK500R at the end of the show and TIAEMS is MFSK 64.

The Stereo Decoder has been updated so we recommend you download the latest one, it sounds much less artefact-y! (Demo here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkeoszELK5Y)

Radio Northern Europe International #6 & TIAEMS July 2020 annoucement!

Hello everyone,

This is just a little announcement post for the next instalment of RNEI!

Our show for July 2020 will have a few pop, traditional and dance songs for you to enjoy!
We are also trialling a digital text system using MFSK16 that could potentially run throughout next show. It’s a little above 5K audio so to decode it you will need to adjust your equipment to receive it!

A reminder to go to https://rnei.org/stereo/ to learn how to decode the stereo in our broadcasts.

Just in time we managed to get the TIAEMS segment into the final show file and I’ve literally just finished listening to it and I can confirm it is good so hopefully you stick around for that!

Radio Northern Europe International March 2020 reception map

Hello everyone,
Just like for show #1 we have a reception map for show #2 to share with you all!
In March we had over 25 reception reports to help us create this map, we appreciate each reception report that comes in and it helps us know where our broadcasts are heard as well as knowing what people think of them.

The most liked song from show #2 seemed to be Mitt Skinn och Ben by Sofia Jannok!

and without any further ado, here is the map:

Radio Northern Europe International #4 & TIAEMS May 2020 annoucement!

Hello everyone,

Last broadcast was pretty successful with many wonderful reception reports and some people sending in decodes of the stereo which is amazing to hear!

A reminder to go to https://rnei.org/stereo/ to learn how to decode the stereo, it is real stereo over a mono shortwave transmitter!

RNEI show 4 is half dedicated to Eurovision entries so the first half of the show is an entery from each Nordic country and after that we take a trip to some Faroese and Irish traditional musics before ending with our favourite Eurovision entry from this year and the final song containing the MFSK 32!

TIAMS has made another 30 minute express music show for after our broadcast for you to enjoy!

Radio Northern Europe International #3 & TIAEMS April 2020 annoucement!

Hello everyone,
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!)

DateTimeFrequencyTarget Zone
Sunday the 5th of April 202018:00 UTC6070KHzZone 1+2
Saturday the 11th of April 202018:00 UTC6070KHzZone 1+2
Friday the 17th of April 202010:00 UTC6070KHzZone 1
Saturday the 25th of April 202000:00 UTC6070KHzZone 2+
Sunday the 26th of April 202018:00 UTC6070KHzZone 1+2

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,
– Roseanna
