MRI moves its weekly broadcasts from Wednesdays to Thursdays - schedule for broadcasts of September 1, 2016

Please be advised that  as from September of this year, our weekly broadcasts from Wednesdays move to Thursdays. Here is the schedule for the first Thursday transmissions of MRI on  1 September 2016:  1600-1800 UTC  on 7700 kHz (USB mode), 1815-1915 UTC on 15070 kHz (USB mode)  and 1930-2130 UTC on 9300 kHz (USB Mode).

Our broadcasts include some kind of programmes now sadly missing from most shortwave radio stations:  an old style DX show in English “Italian Short Wave Panorama” (there is also the Italian version called “Panorama Onde Corte”) with lot of recent logs  as well as  a mailbag show (“La Posta degli ascoltatori”) in Italian. Our  station identification  announcements are not only in English and Italian but also in French, German, Roma nian, Spanish and Catalan.


For the first time in our history a Facebook page about our station has been introduced. It is called "MRI World" and can be found at this web address:  https://www.facebook.com/mriworld  - Although it is still  far from being completed  you can leave your comments and suggestions.


MRI encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts are welcome! We QSL 100%. Our electronic mail address is:   marconiradiointernational@gmail.com   - Please don’t forget to include your postal address as some lucky listeners will also receive a printed QSL card.

Last but not least,  we need your help! If you use social networks, please post an announcement on Facebook  or send out a tweet the day  before the broadcast. You can also forward this message to a friend. This should help increase our  potential audience.
 
We hope to hear from a lot of shortwave listeners about our transmissions.
